NewTek has launched the streamlined TriCaster 1 Pro which balances capability and cost and the next generation TriCaster 2 Elite solution which offers more powerful features as standard.
The new product is a streamlined live video production system, which provides support for 4K UHD switching, live streaming, recording, data-driven graphics, virtual sets, media publishing, and more.
Alongside the release of the Tricaster Pro 1, NewTek has announced new features available on both the Tricaster 1 Pro and Tricaster 2 Elite, including integrated flexibility of software and IP networks – opening up opportunities with the tightest, NDI-native integration.
Operators can now send Alpha Channel through one of the MIX outs, bringing post-production closer to live. Users can also use the keying on TriCaster to feed graphics or real-time 3D creation tools.
Additionally, remote guests are now able to join conversations through video inputs, using the latest version of Live Call Connect, which allows for a range of video communication applications, such as MS Teams, Facebook Messenger and FaceTime. Mobile devices can also be used as a live production camera, using the NDI TriCaster Camera App, which is available for free on iOS and Android devices.
Audio quality is also clearer, with AI canceling background noise from any source, using the Neural Voice Isolation tool.
“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 2 Elite – What’s New
Since its release in July 2020, the TriCaster 2 Elite has been celebrated as setting a new standard for how much can be achieved with a single system. The TriCaster 2 Elite continues as the flagship TriCaster offering, with powerful production enhancements including:
Selectable audio and video return for Live Call Connect applications including the addition of Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, and Facetime.
Global and Local variable support in the macro engine gives operators the ability to use logic statements when automating complex operations.
Neural Voice Isolation to cancel out unwanted noise and background sounds from the voice in the audio mixer.
Feedback in the input windows for framerate and resolution information even on NDI sources
LivePanel™ built directly into the user interface, allowing each event to have truly customized control
Alpha channel is available on NDI outputs which are useful for sending keyed sources to other devices or real-time 3D creation tools like Unreal Engine.
