This educational edition of the NewTek TriCaster Mini HD-4sdi Bundle features the compact TriCaster Mini live production switcher along with a dedicated control surface and custom travel case. It is available to accredited educators and institutions and comes with NewTek's LiveText and Virtual Set Editor software.

The TriCaster Mini allows you to simultaneously broadcast, stream, and record live productions from virtually anywhere. The 16-channel switcher makes it easy to switch between four SDI cameras, mix audio, add graphics and titles, and add advanced effects like virtual sets and animated transitions. Using the same intuitive and fully featured control software as the rest of the TriCaster professional line, the TriCaster Mini is suited for both new users and seasoned pros. For added convenience, the HD-4i model features a built-in 7" display for viewing the Program output, Preview output, or any input source signal.

In addition to the four SDI inputs, you can choose from two live sources from supported devices on the network, including computers, USB webcams, or even wireless Apple AirPlay devices. Two SDI outputs are provided for sending the Program output with audio to external devices, with video-only HDMI and DVI outputs available for monitoring. In order to view the user interface and multi-view output, HDMI and DVI outputs are provided.

The TriCaster Mini can record up to four simultaneous video input or output signals at full resolution to the two internal 750GB storage drives, providing up to 30 hours of HD video recording. You can also record to external drives connected via USB 3.0. The TriCaster Mini supports HD live streaming with presets up to 720p available for RTMP and browser-based streaming applications. Additionally, you can save a web-ready streaming file for later upload to popular social media or video-on-demand sites.

A cable retention bracket comes included, which doubles as a handle for the TriCaster Mini. Also included are a keyboard and mouse, which provide cordless operation via wireless Bluetooth technology. The TriCaster Mini Control Surface brings manual tactile controls to your live production switching while maintaining a small footprint. It is compatible with TriCaster Mini switchers, as well as professional-line TriCaster 410 and 460 models. With an intuitive layout, backlit buttons, familiar live production controls, and compact frame, the Control Surface is suitable for mobile production even in tight spaces. The TriCaster Mini, included accessories, and Control Surface can all be stored in the included travel case, a convenient way to transport the system between locations.

The included LiveText and Virtual Set Editor software lets you build and bring in professional looking graphical elements to your productions. LiveText is a remote titling software used to build titles and graphics on any laptop or desktop computer and send it over a network to the TriCaster for use in your live productions. Virtual Set Editors lets you create custom 3D virtual sets, complete with realistic camera movements, reflective surfaces, live video layers, and even moving backgrounds.

All-in-One Multimedia Studio
The TriCaster Mini makes it possible for anyone to start creating multimedia content, without the need for additional software or equipment. With just one system, you can switch between four cameras, mix audio, add graphics and titles, and add advanced effects like virtual sets and animated transitions. You can also network with computers and wireless devices for presentations and screen sharing, stream to the web, publish to social media sites, and record content for later viewing.
