NewTek TriCaster 850 Recognized with Award of Excellence
NewTek’s TriCaster 850, HD portable live production system, was named one of the top 100 education technology products in the prestigious Tech & Learning magazine Annual Awards of Excellence. This 29-year-old program recognizes innovative applications that break new ground in tools for education. A panel of more than 30 educators tested the entries and chose the winners.
“It’s rewarding to everyone at NewTek to have TriCaster recognized as a product that helps improve teaching and learning,” said Michael Kornet, NewTek CMO. “We have always believed that providing accessible and affordable network-quality production tools would open a whole new world in education. It’s great to know our products are helping inspire teachers and students in the classroom and across the campus.”
Entries were divided into two categories: New Products and Best Upgraded Products. Winning selections include software and Web-based products, as well as hardware and AV tools. Among the high-quality offerings being honored are resources addressing management, safety, communication, differentiated learning, assessment, and other key areas in education.
TriCaster allows users to simultaneously produce, live stream, broadcast, project, and record HD and SD network-style productions. A single operator or small team can switch between multiple cameras, virtual inputs, and live virtual sets, while inserting clips, titles, and motion graphics with multi-channel effects. TriCaster is used by schools, sports organizations, broadcasters, houses of worship, webcasters, government agencies, and others to provide a new level of extended programming and content to their audiences.
