NewTek is continuing to spread the word about advanced IP workflows and its soon-to-be-released NDI (Network Device Interface), a new open standard for live production IP workflows. With NDI, users can send and receive real-time, frame-accurate video from cameras and devices in different locations, all on a standard network infrastructure.
It provides the ability to access the inputs and outputs of any compatible device on a network, tapping into exponentially more media sources for any production. Users can grow their channel count with four additional inputs, mixing any video from both hardware connections and IP video sources.
Users can also integrate audio over IP, connecting to Dante-enabled audio devices anywhere in a facility.
NewTek is showcasing two TriCaster products that they claim are ideal for the new Advanced Edition upgrade and thereby incorporation of NDI.
The TriCaster 8000 is a live video system that 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 – it is the ultimate turnkey solution.
Also on the stand is the latest TriCaster addition, TriCaster Mini, a compact multimedia studio that enables anyone using everyday cameras to create and publish quality video content in minutes, stream it live, push to social media platforms, and capture audiences just like network-style TV.
