NewTek Debuts TriCaster Advanced Edition Software

April 12th, 2015 Posted in News Roundup By SVG Staff

NewTek (Booth SL3312) introduced TriCaster Advanced Edition, an option available for TriCaster Mini through TriCaster 8000 and capable of elevating productions to new heights of connectivity, creativity, and efficiency. More than 60 major new capabilities and enhancements help multiply audiences, streamline repetitive tasks, and make productions more riveting in an increasingly connected world.

Automated real-time data-driven graphics, new IP workflows, advanced automation, multiplatform streaming, social and Web publishing, terrific in-show replay features, enhanced multimedia mixing, sophisticated production elements, and more are added to the functionality already provided by TriCaster. With TriCaster Advanced Edition, producers can create more-masterful multicamera video programming without needing to invest in multiple devices or additional systems.

“Any TriCaster is an extremely powerful, innovative, and cost-effective tool for creative producers,” said NewTek President/CTO Dr. Andrew Cross. “With the introduction of TriCaster Advanced Edition, we have taken things to a whole new level for those who need to simplify or automate complex workflows, design innovative outside-the-box solutions to creative problems, or who just demand the very best of the best.”

With the rising expectations and demands of audiences and sponsors alike, producers want to increase both the competitive and creative advantages they offer. Raising the bar in their productions would normally require considerably more expense, space, and often additional crew. TriCaster Advanced Edition brings the same production benefits, without the extra overhead.
