NewTek returns to its roots of empowering entry-level and budget-constrained live producers with its first sub-$5k HD-capable, multi-camera live production system

NewTek today announced the immediate availability of the TriCaster 40, priced at $4,995. Score one for the "little guy" that made NewTek the company it is today.
