What’s new in TriCaster 860
Virtual Camera Moves - Bring your virtual environment to life with animated virtual camera moves. Adjust shot framing on the fly with manual pan, zoom and pedestal movements, or zip from one preset shot to another without touching the camera.
2X LiveSet Shot Presets - Leagues further than just a "start and finish" zoom position, all professional TriCasters support full pan and scan configuration, with eight custom preset positions for all sets--and with the new live Shot Editor, presets can be modified even while live.
New Live Virtual Sets - The next generation of live virtual sets included in TriCaster 860 take total advantage of our full pan and scan capabilities and position presets, and now include our most updated, more life-like template sets.
Holographic Live Virtual Sets -Create a customized virtual environment from any real-world location. Turn panoramic images taken with your smartphone, DSLR or even point-and-shoot camera into a photorealistic virtual set, using the companion TriCaster VSE 2.5 software (sold separately).
Multimedia -Playback from Cloud, IP, and Stream
Access virtually limitless video sources and content applications as video sources, with the ability to connect to Cloud-based media, IP cameras and streaming servers through network inputs.
Still & Title Buffers - Access up to 15 additional media sources – instantly – during live production. View and manage buffer content directly inside the integrated multiviewer, including animation preview (in some models) and, incredibly live title editing.
Animation Buffers - Dedicate some of your new buffers for up to 5 more full-motion sources for anything animated that you want instantly available, like LiveSet backgrounds, station logos, animated graphics elements--and set them to loop, run once, move around, slow down, position anywhere, scale, and key.
De-Fielded Grabs - Stills from any input (even buffers) can be captured in a pristine, de-fielded frame for immediate use, whether in the show or published instantly.
Send Recording to Playlist - The Add to Playlist record panel command enables instant turnaround of in-show content, making recorded clips available for immediate playback from any DDR playlist.
Send Grabs to Buffer - Make the scene you've just produced available as a newly captured image source in your show. Grab and send the still image directly to a buffer and have it at your beck and call.
Playlist Editing During Playback - Easily accommodate revisions to the show rundown or new content without missing a beat by making changes and updates to media player playlists during showtime. Every preset bin can be accessed and reorganized on the fly, even playing back content from one playlist while editing on another.
Macros - Make commonly used series of commands automatic, or just simplify complex ones. Record any sequence of operations as a macro event, then trigger with a mouse click, keystroke, control surface action or MIDI button--or gesture-based onscreen hotspots.
Macro Editor - Save time reproducing your painstaking macros from scratch. Tweak to your exact specifications, editing the action, timing and order as needed, to ensure automated operations run smoothly and accurately.
Snapshots - Configure your setup of a particular scene just the way you need it for any scenario, then fire every macro action, simultaneously, to snap to it automatically, organizing and automating your show down to the finest detail.
Hot Spots - Turn on-screen areas into interactive controls and let your talent trigger macros with live motion—even run your one-person show from in front of the camera. A wave of a hand or a walk to a mark, and the next action sequence happens automatically.
MIDI Support - Make automation of your show even easier or breakout control tasks to additional crew with TriCaster's extensive MIDI support. Add one or any number of MIDI devices that fit your application and budget, assign macros to controller buttons, and provide dedicated control over video operations—even meshing them with live performance elements like sound, lighting, effects, and more.
M/E Autoplay - Increase the efficiency and accuracy of your production with instant automatic playback. Clips and content play right on cue whenever you press the applicable switcher or M/E button, meaning zero delay when taking a video or image.
Session Templates - Set up and store session settings in reusable templates to jump right to your custom configuration during pre-show activities.
MEM Slot Presets - A timesaver on every level. Configure M/Es, LiveSet shots, transitions, media players and more with your most frequently used setups and content. Presets include multiple slots for instant access to your preferred assets, even while live.
Input Grouping - Use the UI to link switcher and M/E source rows together in color-coded groups to streamline your simultaneous actions on multiple sources and multiple outputs. Make instant, accurate adjustments and fewer mistakes.
UI Enhancements - Next-generation user interface standardizes workflows and conventions across all pro-level models, providing more intuitive control placement and enhanced visuals for better performance, and more efficient operation in typical control environments.
Monitoring Enhancements - Preview any source, including M/Es and Buffers, within Waveform/Vectorscope for color correction and level adjustment.
Multi-View Overlays - Individually customize each multi-view preview monitor, adjusting on the fly for fine-tuned workflow or simply for observation.
Audio Control Surface (Avid Artist Mix) - Add an audio operator to your crew to focus solely on sound. Every TriCaster supports the Avid® Artist Mix audio control surface (sold separately) to provide hands-on control over audio levels and configuration options.
Audio Follow Video (AFV) - Simplify even the most complex A/V setup by selecting any video source to automatically trigger the appropriate audio selection.
Stereo Output Mixes - Expand audio without adding more hardware. Pair stereo output mixes for quad audio, or split them up for multi-language production, a secondary mix, and much more. Dual auxiliary outputs, too.
Audio Routing - Every conceivable audio distribution combination with independent routing of any channel from any input, to any and all of the four audio output mixes.
Pan Control - Pan control on every channel creates a rich, layered sound experience.
Rename Audio Inputs - TriCaster makes it easy for you to keep sources straight, use your own naming conventions, and simplify adjustments.
Independent Delay - Compensate for sync issues with incoming video from mixed cameras with the ability to adjust the audio delay for every input.
Source/Output - Listen and adjust more accurately, with the ability to toggle Solo setting on or off. Audition any single source or output channel, with both exclusive and latch operation options.
PTZ Camera Control - Control robotic PTZ (pan-tilt-zoom) cameras directly from the User Interface, including camera orientation, zoom, focus and iris. Position presets with thumbnail preview make it easy to set up shots remotely and change angles on the fly.
Social Media Share Panel - Take over second and third screens with built-in social media sharing. Real-time publishing instantly links you with all of your social networks – like Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube – so you can share, distribute, and engage instantly, even when you don't have a dedicated social media producer on site.
FTP & File Copy - Duplicate and transfer saved files and recordings for internal and external distribution, getting content to the people that need it, more quickly and efficiently.
Clip Publishing - Prepare recorded files for publishing, creating in and out points on the frames of preference, and then uploading to the desired destination for internal use or external viewing.
Still Grab & Publish - Grab stills from all inputs (including Buffers) and main outputs simultaneously, with enhanced de-fielding for better image quality, and publish immediately to social sites or post-production workflows
Mix/Effects Banks - Expand creative possibilities for your production. In Mix mode, M/Es can use program/preview transitions and overlay to create full-featured sub-mixes. In Effect mode, create multiple video layers for real-time compositing, or transform your green screen setup into an elaborate virtual set.
Network Out - Adding more flexibility to TriCaster's outputs, a configurable over-the-network destination—just like any hardware I/O connection—can be assigned a video source and independent audio channel.
M/E Submix Out - Double your output and audience opportunities by switching two shows, simultaneously, or producing a secondary feed for post-show repurposing, with the ability to output an M/E sub-mix.
M/E Record - Record specialized sub-mixes of your live production that you can repurpose at will. Set your record source to any M/E, and capture an alternate cut of your live show, an uninterrupted feed of a select composition, or even an identical program with different branding.
