Accessory allows the ability to immediately add slow motion and instant replay to live productions Newtek Time Warp NewTek, Inc., manufacturer of industry-leading video and 3D animation products, today introduced TimeWarpâ„ ¢, an optional USB-connected replay controller for its line of TriCasterâ„ ¢ portable live production systems. TimeWarp extends the capabilities of TriCaster by providing producers with a dedicated operator for video playback to perform instant slow motion replay at adjustable speeds on-the-fly during live productions. Together, TriCaster and TimeWarp bring a higher level of sophistication to live sports and fast-paced event coverage. Producers are used to marking in and out points when editing video, but TimeWarp allows this to be done instantly by a single operator or team during a live production. As an event is recorded or streamed with TriCaster, a segment of video can be bracketed and sent to an internal VCR to be played back in slow motion. “TimeWarp greatly adds to the immediacy and flexibility of TriCaster-powered productions. Producers are now able to create professional presentations that surpass client and audience expectations with instant replay and slow motion from any venue,† said Andrew Cross, NewTek’s Executive VP, Software Engineering. “The clips are captured and played back quickly and easily without interrupting the technical director.† TriCasterâ„ ¢ enables sports organizations, corporate communications departments, broadcasters, schools and others to provide a whole new level of extended programming and content to their fans, partners and other audiences. Now, a single operator can produce a live show switching between as many as six cameras with two VCR’s, multi-channel effects, and NewTek’s proprietary virtual sets and keying technology using TriCasterâ„ ¢. With it, virtually anyone can produce network quality live video, which can be distributed simultaneously via video, web stream and projector. NewTek TimeWarp will be available d for $995
