The NewTek TriCaster 1 Pro Production Powerhouse

Among NewTek's latest innovations is the TriCaster 1 Pro, which offers a balance between capability and cost, as well as the next generation TriCaster 2 Elite, which offers even more powerful features out of the box.

NewTek, the IP-based video technology manufacturer and part of the Vizrt Group, has launched the Tricaster Pro 1, adding to the existing Tricaster range.

There are a number of features included in the new product, including support for switching between 4K and UHD, live streaming, recording, data-driven graphics, virtual sets, media publishing, and a number of other features.

As well as the release of the Tricaster Pro 1, NewTek has announced that there will be new features available on both the Tricaster 1 Pro and Tricaster 2 Elite, including the ability to integrate software and IP networks, to offer the most comprehensive integration of NDI to date.

It is now possible for operators to send Alpha Channel through one of the MIX outs, bringing post-production closer to the live stage. It is also possible to use the keying on TriCaster to feed graphics or to use tools to create 3D animations in real time.

It should be pointed out that remote guests are now able to join conversations through video input, using the latest version of Live Call Connect, which supports a wide range of video communication applications, such as Microsoft Teams, Zoom, Facebook Messenger, and FaceTime, which can be accessed through the latest version of Live Call Connect. You can also use your mobile device as a live production camera through the use of the NDI TriCaster Camera App, which is available for free for Apple and Android devices.

The Neural Voice Isolation tool is also capable of canceling background noise from any source and allows for better audio quality.

“Today’s producers have to keep up with an insatiable demand for video content while maximizing flexibility,” said Will Waters, NewTek’s Head of Product Management.

“TriCaster offers the only complete set of production tools while focusing on efficiency and flexibility only available through combining IP networking and software-defined solutions. The TriCaster 1 Pro is a welcome addition for the storytellers that need robust remote calling but don’t require an extreme quantity of sources and destinations. The update to the TriCaster 2 Elite serves to cement its position as a transformative platform that truly takes video production to another level.”

TriCaster 1 Pro is an ideal tool for medium-sized productions. Whether it is SDI or Audio I/O, or a multiviewer, it offers plenty of connectivity options not only through the powerful 10G network interface, but also directly through dedicated ports for anything from SDI to audio.

There are a number of advanced features that are included in the TriCaster 1 Pro that will make it a favorite of mid-size producers, including 4K UHD switching, live streaming and publishing, live call connection, live story creator, graphics, live panels, alpha channel outputs, advanced macros, recording, data-driven graphics, virtual sets, media publishing, and more that come standard with the TriCaster 1 Pro.

In terms of production, delivery, and management of content, there is no other live production solution in its class that offers comparable capabilities.
