Gives technical directors dedicated control and improved workflow Newtek LiveControl NewTek, Inc., manufacturer of industry-leading video and 3D animation products, today introduced LiveControlâ„ ¢, an optional USB-connected device for its line of TriCasterâ„ ¢ portable live production and virtual set systems. It provides users with dedicated control of each TriCaster input for more compelling productions with tighter pacing. LiveControl, available in two versions for all NewTek’s TriCaster models (LC-08 for TriCaster; LC-11 for TriCaster PROâ„ ¢, TriCaster STUDIOâ„ ¢ and TriCaster BROADCASTâ„ ¢), can be used in tandem with NewTek’s other new LiveTextâ„ ¢ and TimeWarpâ„ ¢ accessories to more efficiently integrate titling, replay and slow motion capabilities into TriCaster-generated productions. LiveControl, makes it possible for the producer and technical director to focus on their respective roles to improve the accuracy, pacing and overall quality of live web streams and video projects. The device’s layout and large buttons mimic the physical surface and feel of control mechanisms familiar to professional technical directors, so they can effectively operate a TriCaster immediately. “Efficient workflow is essential to good production, and LiveControl provides this with an approach similar to how video presentations are streamed or completed via remote trucks or TV studios,† said Andrew Cross, NewTek’s Executive VP, Software Engineering. “LiveControl allows technical directors to keep their eyes forward and react quickly, which is particularly important in live shoots.† NewTek LiveControl LC-8 and LC-11 will be available for $995 and $1,995
