  • NewTek TriCaster Mini HD-4i Bundle with Control Surface and Travel Case

    The NewTek TriCaster Mini HD-4i Bundle features the compact TriCaster Mini live production switcher along with a dedicated control surface and custom travel case. The all-in-one multimedia solution that allows you to simultaneously broadcast, stream, and record live productions from virtually anywhere. The 16-channel switcher makes it easy to switch between four HDMI 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 HDMI 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 HDMI 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.

  • NewTek TriCaster Advanced Edition Software for TriCaster Switchers

    Expand the capabilities of your TriCaster 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.

    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.

    Multi-Platform Live Streaming: Double your potential audience without adding a new encoder, reach more viewers and attract different audiences by live streaming to multiple platforms and services simultaneously.
    Switching
    Router Support: Expand camera coverage with your TriCaster 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.

    Effect View: On the TriCaster 8000 you can now double-check every frame of your next sequence before it goes to air with Effect View. This enhanced preview mode lets you screen everything your audience will see from start to finish in real time so that it appears exactly how you want it.
    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. (Not available on TriCaster Mini)

    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.

    TriCaster Home Page: Access IP management tools such as DataLink Web utilities, updates, downloads, documentation, tutorials, customer service, and more from a system-specific TriCaster Home Page accessible from your phone, tablet, or laptop - any supported device on the same network.
  • 2 x NewTek Connect Spark HDMI

    The NewTek Connect Spark HDMI is a Wi-Fi-capable IP video converter designed for the NewTek open-source NDI standard. It supports up to 1080p59.94 video, and allows for remote recording to optional USB or microSD storage media. It can also be controlled via a web-based user interface for configuration and monitoring.

    The NDI standard (Network Device Interface) allows all NDI-compatible video equipment to freely recognize and interact with one another, as long they're connected to the same network over Ethernet or Wi-Fi.

    Connect Spark HDMI is designed to provide an ideal way to get HDMI video into a computer or IP-based video workflow. It allows you to convert any HDMI source for compatibility with hundreds of NDI-compatible systems, devices, and applications that can be connected on the same network, enabling you to efficiently incorporate that HDMI source into IP-based video capture and production workflows.

    You won't need all the cables you normally would, but can rather send and receive video to/from your computer through the network. (Your computer would need to be NDI-enabled, and this is easily done with NDI software such as Connect Pro, sold separately.)

    As soon as you plug the Connect Spark to a network, the HDMI source connected to it will instantly become available as an input for any NDI-compatible hardware and software on the network.
