With hundreds of new multi-camera production capabilities in the next-generation TriCaster 460, you can produce live video with the look of network television more creatively and efficiently than ever before.
Based on the innovative concept of a single system to broadcast,
project stream, and record simultaneously, TriCaster 460’s multiple
turnkey functions do the work usually requiring racks of equipment, but
integrated into a small, van-friendly footprint instead. Just one system
replaces gear for recording, encoding, switching, submixing, playback,
audio mixing, DVE, advanced graphics and titling, animation store, scan
conversion, multiple channels of virtual sets, live streaming, camera
automation, scopes and monitors, and social media publishing.
Scaled for Mobility
Professional-grade gear in a compact size. Industry-standard analog
and digital connectivity, along with swift setup and teardown for
in-and-out coverage, make the most of just 2U of rack space in a
production vehicle or other space, and help you gain a freedom of
movement that's just not possible with racks of individual components
pieced together. Available with or without a compact counter-sunk or
countertop control surface that goes anywhere.
TriCaster 460 provides connectivity to prepare for any location
scenario. Connect multiple cameras with the capability to mix and match
connection types, including SDI, component, composite and Y/C; and even
camera types with varying SD and HD resolutions and formats. Equally
flexible outputs can send a variety of feeds to multiple destinations
and displays—even send a signal to another TriCaster over the network
with a network output.
4-channel ISO Source Recording
NewTek’s seriously forward-thinking IsoCorder™ technology combines
the capabilities of racks and racks of video capture equipment,
providing multi-track, multi-format recording of up to four simultaneous
channels. Record any combination of your finished show, a clean feed,
raw source captures from any camera, or more, at full
resolution—directly from the user interface.
15-channel Multi-camera Production
Connectivity for 4 camera sources. Color correction, keying,
cropping, scaling, and frame sync on every input. Video playback from 2
DDRs—not just short clips with an overly restrictive frame count: we’re
talking full-length packages and whatever else you need. Digital media
from 2 built-in graphic and sound slots. 2 network sources for sharing
computer displays, wireless iOS devices, or any over-the-network source.
And 4 M/E banks to stage live virtual sets, create real-time
compositions and presets, and submixes that can act as upstream
switchers (or secondary programs out).
Expanded Media Sources: Buffers and Network Inputs
Providing greater built-in source variety than any other 15-channel
system is just the start. TriCaster 460 gives producers instant access
to even more content in real time, without adding equipment or crew. 10
still buffers and 5 animation buffers provide 15 bonus “always on”
sources. And enhanced network inputs support cloud video, streaming
servers, remote cameras, remotely hosted clips, USB cameras and more,
dramatically expanding content and programming possibilities without
taking up a hardware input.
The TriCaster integrated multi-channel audio mixer is loaded with
enhancements that raise the caliber of your shows’ sound to the same
professional, network quality as the visuals. Unprecedented routing,
customization, control and flexibility—and further opportunities for
sound configuration and delivery like simulcast audio, multi-language
presentation, and mix-minus applications (such as Skype calls and
phoners)—without the investment in scores of external hardware. If live
control by an audio operator is what you want, you get full support for
mixing from our iPad remote mixer app, the Avid® Artist Mix control
surface, and other third-party audio control interfaces.
Visual & Motion Effects
TriCaster 460 has the most powerful integrated effects engine
available in live production. From full-color, animated transitions with
alpha channel and embedded audio, to real-time cloth dynamics, 3D video
warping, and transformations with TransWarp effects and motion
overlays; all the way to your own custom, branded effects using the
included Animation Store Creator application, and real-time,
multi-layered compositions with 4 M/E rows and motion effects. TriCaster
460 lets nothing stand in the way of getting the look you want or the
professional presentation your organization demands.
Automation functions in TriCaster 460 help you experiment with more
complex sequences but leave nothing to chance during a live production.
Reduce on-air mistakes with macros—streamline real-time shot sequences
that make the show look more sophisticated, but are too complicated to
execute live and risk costly errors. Unlimited external control
functions with MIDI sequencing enables show control of nearly any
command, or offloading tasks to additional crew. With hotspots, talent
can trigger automated sequences requiring extraordinary timing with
on-camera gestures, effectively controlling a segment without an
operator. And add remotely controlled robotic cameras as input sources,
without the need to add camera operators.
Even if your "set" is really a multi-purpose room or the corner of a
studio, your viewers will not only see your professional brand shine
through—they’ll see any world you want to create, without the high cost
or heavy construction. With TriCaster 460 system's virtual sets, you can
elevate your look with realistic foregrounds and live moving
backgrounds. Not just high-end studio looks either: take a panoramic of
any location with your smart phone, or a 3D model from any universe you
create, and make it your scene using our holographic LiveSet capability,
bringing augmented reality that much closer to live. Add real-time
energy to any virtual set with two live sources—each with overlay, all
with transitions, sounds, 3D DVEs and effects. Live camera moves and
shot changes during production bring your new location to life.
Social Media Publishing
With a brief setup beforehand and the real-time grab of a shot,
generate second-screen content for sites like YouTube, Facebook and
Twitter during the live show, and extend your brand to online and
second-screen platforms—or share assets to common storage locations for
instant access by others. Hey, set it all up with a macro and just push a
button, and you’ve increased your program exposure without adding
equipment, personnel, or lag time.
TriCaster 460 provides extensive workflow interoperation for
postproduction: 4-channel ISO recording enables the capture of all the
raw sources coming into the program, for later repurposing or re-use.
Expanded media format support (like native QuickTime®-encoded files
embedded with timecode and four audio tracks) eliminates conversion for
production or editing, speeds up post- production workflows, and enables
wider integration of Mac or PC based files. Our codecs for Mac and PC
let you encode media assets, optimized for real time.
External and Third-Party Applications
Through our third-party developer network, TriCaster 460 supports an
extended set of products that work directly with the system to provide
innovative solutions and workflows in several different areas of your
live production, including streaming, graphics, content and controllers.
Our SDK enables developers and customers to tap into the power of
TriCaster functionality, add applications that enhance the production
workflow, and further extend integration with standard and custom
installations. And our own suite of peripheral applications and hardware control surfaces rounds out the total solution.
