The NewTek TriCaster Mini Advanced HD-4 SDI is a compact, all-in-one multimedia solution that allows you to simultaneously broadcast, stream, and record live productions from virtually anywhere. The eight-input switcher lets you easily switch between four SDI or eight NDI video sources, mix audio, add graphics and titles, and add advanced effects such as virtual sets and animated transitions. Featuring an intuitive and full-featured control software, the TriCaster Mini Advanced HD-4 SDI is suited for both new users and seasoned professionals.
In addition to the four SDI inputs, you can choose from four NDI devices on the network, including computers, PTZ cameras, or even wireless capture devices. Two SDI outputs are provided for sending the Program output with audio to external devices.
The TriCaster Mini Advanced HD-4 SDI features an internal 1TB SSD drive and also supports recording to external storage via USB 3.0. The comprehensive switcher also supports live streaming to multiple platforms and services simultaneously. A keyboard and mouse are included, and the optional TriCaster Mini Control Panel can also be incorporated for traditional tactile control with a T-bar and illuminated buttons.
Advanced IP Workflow
Video and Audio over IP
Send and receive real-time, low-latency, frame-accurate video and multichannel audio over IP on a standard network infrastructure via the NDI protocol, with any NDI-enabled device on the same LAN available as a video source or destination.
IP Source Selection
Access both the inputs and outputs of all NDI-enabled devices on the same network from any external input on the TriCaster Mini Advanced, dramatically increasing the number of available video sources for any production.
Send output signals, sub-mixes, or individual sources to NDI-enabled devices with 4 fully configurable, IP video outputs.
Apply more sophisticated audio routing configurations, mapping any input channel (or combination of input channels) to any output channel (or combination of output channels) with four complete 4x4 routers for every audio input.
Input Level Control
Fine-tune sound with independent control for every audio channel—up to 4 per input.
Deliver pitch-perfect sound mixes for any setup, supplying audio signals via 4 IP-ready, quad-channel output busses—Master, Aux 1, Aux 2, and Aux 3.
Dante Audio Networking
Expand integration and IP workflow possibilities with audio input over the network from devices that use the Dante networking protocol. (Requires Dante Virtual Soundcard license from Audinate, sold separately.)
Audio Recording Options
Configure the captured audio source for each ISO recording with per-channel audio signal selection.
Default Media File Level
Reduce time spent individually configuring audio levels for non-native clips and sound files by assigning a preset level to all files added to media players.
Manage audio signals with greater precision using noise gate settings in the audio mixer to exclude low-level sounds.
Achieve higher-quality sound by determining audio clipping more easily and accurately with an updated VU meter interface.
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.
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 (live) cue to resume.
Gain additional flexibility for activating automated macro sequences with triggers that include audio level changes, media playback, and specific switcher actions, and the ability to assign multiple triggers for the same macro.
Produce more engaging playlist sequences from your on-board media by adding transitions between playlist media, and even combining real-time, slow-mo, and fast-mo with per-clip playback speed settings.
Real-Time Clip Editing
Speed up the turnaround of raw recordings and video files for DDR playback with easy, built-in clip splitting and trimming tools.
Live Output Monitoring
Work with higher-quality output video previews with enhanced signal processing and full field-rate deinterlacing.
Choose from more video signal selections to monitor, display, or project using the supplemental display ports, and customize every screen in your setup to your workflow.
Blue Only Option
Calibrate video signals with greater flexibility and accuracy with a Blue Only viewport overlay compatible with virtually any monitor.
Monitor Proc Amps
Compensate for environmental lighting conditions and external display settings with configurable color settings for the user interface, multiview, and display ports.
Calibrate video signals with greater precision using large waveform and vectorscope displays on multiview.
