Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage attraction on June 10 and 11. Seventy members of
the media from around the world will participate in this event.

Four TriCaster PRO models will be used to stream live programming over the
Internet for the first time ever from the

” Knockout Digital Media and NewTek make such a great team to take our
events to the next level,” said Jay A. Hatcher,

the TriCasters to the table to take what has traditionally been a static one
camera webcast to a dynamic switched three-camera show. We will ‘wow’ our media
partners while working within a modest budget.”

“ Knockout Digital Media s cutting edge approach to live event multimedia
coverage has impressed all of our clients from ESPN to Walt Disney World thanks
to TriCaster. Now we will present another impressive showcase for the device’s
live multimedia content streaming capabilities at
Disneyland,”
said Gil Chavez, President, Knockout Digital Media. “NewTek has been incredible
in maintaining its clear vision of the future of internet television and
trailblazing past the competition with the reliable, portable, and powerful
