Record, stream, and broadcast professional multi-camera shoots with this NewTek TriCaster 460 Production Switcher B&H Kit. This kit is centered around the TriCaster 460 production switcher while the Advanced Edition software offers expanded functionality brought from the TriCaster 8000 series such as M/E re-entry, 8 external switcher options, a full motion compensation engine, real-time motion tracking, 4 virtual set inputs, and more. Rounding out the package is the 860 control surface which provides immediate tactile control over the TriCaster 460 switcher. See below for more information on each item included in this kit.

  • NewTek TriCaster 460 Multi-Camera Production System

    The Newtek TriCaster 460 is a van-friendly, 2U, multi-camera, multi-input, multi-format switcher system that allows you to simultaneously broadcast, project, stream, and record. It supports real-time, 4 M/E compositing and offers 3D and holographic virtual sets, transitions, and brand elements, and audio is adjustable for all input sources.

    Built-in IsoCorder technology allows recording up to four isolated, simultaneous feeds during live production. You can instantly publish content to popular social media sites, upload to FTP sites, transfer to storage volumes/network locations, share clips and stills during production, or upload your entire show within minutes after production wraps. Custom memory presets and key commands allow you to streamline sophisticated operation sequences that are too complex for real-time action execution.

    An advanced control interface is built into the system, and a compatible control surface can optionally be purchased and incorporated. Two sets of keys are included for unlocking the unit from the front.

    Turnkey Production
    Based on the innovative concept of a single system to broadcast, project stream, and record simultaneously, TriCaster 460's multiple turnkey functions do the work usually requiring racks of equipment, but integrated into a small, van-friendly footprint instead. Just one system replaces gear for recording, encoding, switching, submixing, playback, audio mixing, DVE, advanced graphics and titling, animation store, scan conversion, multiple channels of virtual sets, live streaming, camera automation, scopes and monitors, and social media publishing.
    Scaled for Mobility
    The TriCaster is professional-grade gear in a compact size. Industry-standard analog and digital connectivity, along with swift setup and teardown for in-and-out coverage, allow you to make the most of just 2U of rack space in a production vehicle or other space, and help you gain a freedom of movement that's just not possible with racks of individual components pieced together.
    Mix-and-Match I/O
    TriCaster 460 provides connectivity to prepare for any location scenario. Connect multiple cameras with the capability to mix and match connection types, including SDI, component, composite, and Y/C; and even camera types with varying SD and HD resolutions and formats. Equally flexible outputs can send a variety of feeds to multiple destinations and displays-even send a signal to another TriCaster over the network with a network output.
    4-Channel ISO Source Recording
    NewTek's IsoCorder technology combines the capabilities of racks and racks of video capture equipment, providing multi-track, multi-format recording of up to 4 simultaneous channels. Record any combination of your finished show, a clean feed, raw source captures from any camera, or more, at full resolution-directly from the user interface.
    15-Channel Multi-Camera Production
    The TriCaster provides connectivity for 4 camera sources, and color correction, keying, cropping, scaling, and frame sync on every input. Video playback from 2 DDRs-not just short clips with an overly restrictive frame count: we're talking full-length packages and whatever else you need. It allows for digital media from 2 built-in graphic and sound slots, 2 network sources for sharing computer displays, wireless iOS devices, or any over-the-network source, and 4 M/E banks to stage live virtual sets, create real-time compositions and presets, and submixes that can act as upstream switchers (or secondary programs out).
    Expanded Media Sources: Buffers and Network Inputs
    Providing greater built-in source variety, the TriCaster 460 gives producers instant access to even more content in real-time, without adding equipment or crew. Ten still buffers and 5 animation buffers provide 15 bonus always on sources. And, enhanced network inputs support cloud video, streaming servers, remote cameras, remotely hosted clips, USB cameras, and more, dramatically expanding content and programming possibilities without taking up a hardware input.
    Audio Mixing
    The TriCaster integrated multi-channel audio mixer is loaded with enhancements that raise the caliber of your shows' sound to the same professional, network quality as the visuals. It provides unprecedented routing, customization, control, and flexibility-and further opportunities for sound configuration and delivery like simulcast audio, multi-language presentation, and mix-minus applications (such as Skype calls)-without the investment in scores of external hardware. If live control by an audio operator is what you want, you get full support for mixing from NewTek's iPad remote mixer app, the Avid Artist Mix control surface (sold separately), and other third-party audio control interfaces.
    Visual & Motion Effects
    TriCaster 460 has a powerful integrated effects engine available for live production. It packs a myriad of features: from full-color, animated transitions with alpha channel and embedded audio, to real-time cloth dynamics, 3D video warping, and transformations with TransWarp effects and motion overlays; all the way to your own custom, branded effects using the included Animation Store Creator application, and real-time, multi-layered compositions with 4 M/E rows and motion effects. TriCaster 460 lets nothing stand in the way of getting the look you want or the professional presentation your organization demands.
    Automation
    Automation functions in TriCaster 460 help you experiment with more complex sequences but leave nothing to chance during a live production. Reduce on-air mistakes with macros-streamline real-time shot sequences that make the show look more sophisticated, but are too complicated to execute live and risk-costly errors. Unlimited external control functions with MIDI sequencing enables show control of nearly any command, or offloading tasks to additional crew. With hotspots, the talent can trigger automated sequences requiring extraordinary timing with on-camera gestures, effectively controlling a segment without an operator, and add remotely controlled robotic cameras as input sources, without the need to add camera operators.
    Virtual Sets
    Even if your set is really a multi-purpose room or the corner of a studio, your viewers will not only see your professional brand shine through-they'll see any world you want to create, without the heavy construction. With TriCaster 460 system's virtual sets, you can elevate your look with realistic foregrounds and live moving backgrounds. Not just high-end studio looks either: take a panoramic picture of any location with your smart phone, or a 3D model from any universe you create, and make it your scene using the holographic LiveSet capability, bringing augmented reality closer to life. Add real-time energy to any virtual set with 2 live sources-each with overlay, all with transitions, sounds, 3D DVEs, and effects. Live camera moves and shot changes during production bring your new location to life.
    Social Media Publishing
    With a brief setup beforehand and the real-time grab of a shot, generate second-screen content for sites like YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter during the live show, and extend your brand to online and second-screen platforms-or share assets to common storage locations for instant access by others. Hey, set it all up with a macro and just push a button, and you've increased your program exposure without adding equipment, personnel, or lag time.
    Post-Production
    TriCaster 460 provides extensive workflow interoperation for postproduction: 4-channel ISO recording enables the capture of all the raw sources coming into the program, for later repurposing or reuse. Expanded media format support (like native QuickTime-encoded files embedded with timecode and 4 audio tracks) eliminates conversion for production or editing, speeds up post-production workflows, and enables wider integration of Mac or PC based files. The codecs for Mac and PC let you encode media assets, optimized for real time.
    External and Third-Party Applications
    Through our third-party developer network, TriCaster 460 supports an extended set of products that work directly with the system to provide innovative solutions and workflows in several different areas of your live production, including streaming, graphics, content, and controllers. NewTek's SDK enables developers and customers to tap into the power of TriCaster functionality, add applications that enhance the production workflow, and further extend integration with standard and custom installations. And, NewTek's suite of peripheral applications and hardware control surfaces (sold separately) rounds out the total solution.
    Virtual Camera Moves
    Bring your virtual environment to life with animated virtual camera moves. Adjust shot framing on the fly with manual pan, zoom, and pedestal movements, or zip from one preset shot to another without touching the camera.
    2x LiveSet Shot Presets

  • NewTek TriCaster Advanced Edition Software for TriCaster 460 Switchers

    Expand the capabilities of your TriCaster 460 switcher with NewTek's TriCaster Advanced Edition Software. Because the Advanced Edition is only a software update, the physical setup of your switcher does not change, however the capabilities of the very same hardware are expanded. With the updated software, NewTek also refreshed the user interface with a clean, understated appearance.

    The Advanced Edition software enhances the graphics integration capabilities of TriCaster switchers. It enables data driven graphics with real-time updates, and advanced 3D implementation of layers of video, graphics, or text that behave like elements in the scene. Virtual inputs are also added for taking video sources over a network using the Dante protocol. Dante also provides network tally information for connected systems. You can also grab source material from the web, stream to multiple providers, and publish content to social media sites directly from your TriCaster 460.

    Features

    Audio
    Dante Audio Networking: Expand integration and IP workflow possibilities with audio input over the network from devices that use the Dante networking protocol from Audinate.

    Audio Output Configuration: Dedicated output of Master and Aux audio mixes from TriCaster's built-in audio mixer directly to external audio gear. With this revised configuration, Master and Aux are supplied to the first two analog output groups, respectively.

    Audio Recording Options: Capture your configurable sound source for ISO recordings with per-channel audio signal selection.

    Default Media File Level: Reduce time spent on individually configuring audio levels for non-native clips and sound files, and instead assign a preset level to all files added to media players.

    Noise Gate: Manage audio signals with greater precision using new noise gate settings in the audio mixer to exclude low-level sounds.

    VU Meters: Determine audio clipping more easily and accurately with an updated VU meter interface.
    Data
    DataLink Integration: Use real-time data from internal and external sources in your live program without adding dedicated data input software. Built-in DataLink maps your selected data source to titles, comments, file names, and other fields in graphics templates, and updates their corresponding content instantly-automatically or on-demand-ensuring you have the most current and accurate information.

    DataLink File Watcher: Save time converting detailed information like sports statistics and sales data into graphics. With DataLink and a CSV, XML, or ASCII file, you can transform raw spreadsheet data into production-ready title pages that can be edited and updated in real time.
    Macro Automation
    Multi-Step Macros: When timing is everything but anything can happen, take control by creating automated sequences using macro commands with expert pacing and built-in pauses that wait for your cue to resume.

    Switching
    Router Support: Expand camera coverage with your TriCaster 460 by connecting to a compatible upstream video router, then selecting and switching between router sources directly from the TriCaster Advanced Edition user interface.

    Undo/Redo: Skip troubleshooting and backtracking by handling unwanted changes or unintended results instantly with undo and redo commands.
    Visual
    Second KEY Layer: Each M/E now includes a second KEY layer to apply titles, graphics, and video overlays.

    Auto Color: Reduce manual effort in correcting for variable lighting conditions and camera settings, especially at outdoor events that would often require a dedicated shading station, with automatic color matching between video inputs.

    Border Effects: Create and customize on-screen elements and boost your production value with more detailed compositions, sophisticated visuals, and custom multi-box effects by adding borders and shadows to video layers.

    Buffers: Upgrade your presentation without sacrificing the DDRs with access to and playback of stored animations, motion graphics, and looping clips with animation buffers.

    Augmented Reality KEY Layers: Add another dimension to virtual set scenes with augmented KEY layers that track along with LiveSet zoom and pan movements-making them appear as an integral part of the set, instead of just overlays.

    Creativity Extras: With support for formats like JPEG-XR, JPEG2000, and WebP, accept even more image files without conversion; compose shots and sequences using new additive and non-additive fade transitions, configure LiveMatte visuals using a new Lumakey setting, and easily incorporate explanations, descriptions, quotes, and more with title pages that support paragraph text.

    Image Processing: Present more polished visuals with enhanced processing of still images and graphics, plus higher-quality LiveSet rendering and scaling.
    Web
    DataLink Web: Use any text or image from the web as content in your live production without complicated integration.
