NewTek TriCaster TC1 Goes Full 4K with IP-Based Live Switching

Tim Siglin gives us an overview on the NEW NewTek TriCaster TC1, the new fulll 4K IP-based live production system. TriCaster TC1 is the most complete multi-camera production systems on the planet—for the modern producer, publisher, and content creator. TC1 Streaming Capabilities Streaming is a critical component of the new TC1. The company notes that users can “stream directly to Facebook Live, YouTube Live, Microsoft Azure, Periscope, Twitch, and other streaming sites.” In addition, for content that’s recorded on the TC1, the unit allows producers to “deliver video clips directly to social media sites right from the TriCaster TC1 interface… One of our goals with the TC1 is to produce content that can go to multiple platforms simultaneously,” said Cross. “As we create new products, we absolutely need to embrace tried-and-true production techniques,” Cross added, acknowledging that five decades of workflow techniques can’t just be jettisoned because of the advent of IP. Cross noted that the new tools are designed to work for producers, rather than requiring producers to learn a new workflow. Skype Features That said, Cross also noted that the company’s TalkShow technology, based around Skype for Business and Skype TX, makes it easier to bring on-air talent from multiple locations that traditionally may have been hard to reach. The company’s press release notes that “any one of the TriCaster TC1’s 16 external inputs can be designated for live, broadcast-quality Skype video calling, giving producers the capability to reach any one of the 300 million monthly active users of Skype and deliver a pristine HD video call with balanced audio.” Click here to read the full article on Streaming Media
