NewTek intros LiveText 219 May 2010
NewTek’s LiveText 2 update provides increased workflow support with the ability to send HD titles and graphics to any TriCaster portable live production system.
LiveText 2 remote titling software with added DataLink allows operators to pre-produce graphics and titles off-site, or on the way to the location, and deliver real-time display of scores, times, prices and other rapidly-changing information, providing instant updates to TriCaster.
“By allowing a dedicated person to control all titling aspects of a production, LiveText 2 lets the director focus on the flow of a live web or video project," said Andrew Cross, executive vice president, engineering, NewTek. “It also improves the reaction time and accuracy of new titles added during live production."
LiveText 2 also allows for a shared workload, by creating the ability to add a dedicated title station. Communicating directly with TriCaster, LiveText 2 provides scrolls, crawls, title pages and lower thirds, to a live production or live stream. Now, say the company offering some examples, managing last minute speaker changes is easy, and monitoring realtime data makes updating effortless.
NewTek LiveText 2 is slated to ship May 2010, at a retail price of £799 + VAT. Registered owners of LiveText or DataLink may upgrade to LiveText 2 for £229 + VAT. Registered owners of both LiveText and DataLink will be eligible to receive the LiveText 2 upgrade at no charge.
