NewTek, Inc., manufacturer of industry-leading video and 3D animation products, today introduced LiveTextÃ¢â€ž ¢, an optional accessory for its line of TriCasterÃ¢â€ž ¢ portable live production and virtual set systems that gives users access to hundreds of ready-to-use professional titles for their live web stream and video projects. LiveText installed on a laptop allows operators to directly control titling options for full pages, lower thirds, scrolls and crawls Ã¢â‚¬Å“on the flyÃ¢â‚¬ as video content is being streamed live. The results can be displayed for director approval or put immediately on air. By allowing a dedicated person to control all titling aspects of a production, LiveText frees up the director to focus on the flow of a live web stream or video project and improves the reaction time and accuracy of new titles added Ã¢â‚¬Å“in showÃ¢â‚¬ . Ã¢â‚¬Å“LiveText will boost the quality of any producerÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s output with advanced, flexible and easy to implement titling options that can be performed live,Ã¢â‚¬ said Andrew Cross, NewTekÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Executive VP, Software Engineering. Ã¢â‚¬Å“Anyone who has produced a live program, from sporting events to news, knows the creation and management of titles can be stressful. LiveText greatly improvesÃ‚ this aspect of the live production experience.Ã¢â‚¬ NewTek LiveText will be available for $995US.
