NewTek TC1 overview

  • 1Description

Make yourself a fully functional NDI-based studio with the NewTek TriCaster TC1 MAX Bundle. This bundle is comprised of the NewTek TriCaster TC1 rackmount switcher, a TriCaster NC1 rackmount 8-channel NDI I/O module, and a two-stripe Large Control Panel for the TC1 switcher.

The TC1 switcher has local SDI I/O for SD, HD, or 4K signals, and it connects with the NC1 module to add an additional eight channels of I/O. Four channels of I/O on the NC1 can be ganged together for 4K capabilities. Since the module and the switcher connect via Ethernet, the two can be placed physically anywhere on the same local network without any video or audio quality penalties. Connect the Large Control Panel and get precise control of the TC1's functions at your fingertips. See below for more information on the individual items included in this kit.

  • TriCaster TC1 (3 RU, Redundant Power Supply)

    Produce professional live and recorded content in SD, HD, or UHD 4K with the NewTek TriCaster TC1. Its 16 potential video sources can be used simultaneously, regardless of resolution. And with NewTek's Network Device Interface (NDI), many types of video sources can be connected directly via standard network infrastructure. The unit itself contains four SDI inputs and outputs for direct connection of broadcast video and audio sources. HDMI, DisplayPort, and DVI can be used for displaying multiview screens. Embedded audio and local XLR or 1/4" balanced audio can be mixed and manipulated using the internal digital audio mixer.

    All the performance of the TC1 is available in a 3 RU form factor with a redundant 500W PSU, for an extra degree of protection against electrical failure. Control surfaces, monitors, and NDI video converters can be purchased separately to expand the functionality of the TC1. Whether broadcasting sports, talk shows, concerts, worship services, or anything else, the TriCaster TC1 is a solid center point with which to bring together your broadcast infrastructure.

    General Features

    UHD 4K Support
    Produce programs, performances, events, and live sports in UHD (Ultra High-Definition) 4K resolution with support for native 2160p video at 60 fps. TriCaster TC1 allows you to switch, stream, and record UHD video without compromising the frame rate or the number of available inputs.
    Built-In Video Servers
    No decks needed—just add your files with two built-in video servers for on-demand and automated playback, including auto-advancing playlists, on-cue instant replay, live-edited highlight reels, and much more. With responsive player controls, presets, real-time editing tools, selectable transitions, and playlist effects, you have everything needed to cue from your stored media.
    Multi-Source Video Mixing
    With 36 source channels, including 16 external inputs, you can easily create content using any combination of compatible video sources, including 3G-SDI, HD-SDI, and PTZ cameras, mobile devices, Skype TX video calls, computers, gaming systems, streaming media, video files, graphics, images, animations, and more.
    Multichannel Skype
    Conduct a live Skype video call with any remote guest, anywhere in the world, with the TriCaster TC1's direct Skype TX software integration. The studio-grade version of the popular app, Skype TX enhances the real-time interaction with broadcast quality video and balanced audio, allowing you to present production-ready conversations, interviews, reports, and more—regardless of the caller's device.
    Recording and Replay
    Capture different angles and record multiple channels of full-resolution video to QuickTime or H.264 files. From archiving the master cut for your content library, to ingesting the raw camera footage for post-production, to caching production extras and presentation materials for on-demand—even capturing real-time highlights for instant replay—the TriCaster TC1 easily handles the work of multiple professional decks without the added expense.
    Dual-Channel Live Streaming
    Stream live to your choice of new media platforms, including user-friendly presets for Facebook Live, Microsoft Azure, Periscope, Twitch, YouTube Live, and more.

With three customizable multiviewers, configurable windows and workspace layouts, operator confidence monitors, visual indicators, scopes, and more, you can easily personalize the TriCaster TC1 environment to your preference.
    Video Tools
    Perfect your presentation with configurable color correction tools, 3D object positioning, and smooth-edge cropping. Apply Picture in Picture effects with optional borders. Use key and fill to produce new composite scenes from different foreground and background elements. Even map live video to moving props and set pieces with real-time motion tracking.

  • NC1 Studio I/O Module (1 RU)

    NewTek's NC1 Studio I/O Module is the bridge to your NDI infrastructure. Able to translate up to eight channels of SDI video (two channels in UHD 4K), this NC1 module can be set up anywhere across your network to transmit and receive SD, HD, or UHD video in a studio environment. Eight mini BNC terminals can connect to video sources, audio sources, decks, or monitors, and can each be configured for input or output. Since the module only needs to attach to your network, you can deploy multiple modules in different locations inside your network, instantly integrating that location into your production. Multiview video can also be locally displayed via HDMI or DVI. This unit mounts in a standard 19" equipment rack, so you can add more units for a greater number of inputs and outputs at a given location.

    Quick Features

    Translate up to eight SDI or IP video sources to NDI, and deliver to the network from any location
    Configurable to accept up to two UHD 4K sources up to 60 fps with quad-link SDI
