TriCaster 8000, the new top-of-the-line integrated production system in NewTek’s TriCaster line, is making its European début at IBC.
Tricaster 8000 is a full eight M/E system with up to eight cameras, IsoCorder Technology, 14 configurable outputs, switcher operation snapshot macro setup, assignment and single button triggering, four downstream keyers, and control surface among its features.
NewTek has designed TriCaster 8000 to replace the process of posting video to the Web with in-show publishing of up to eight subsections of a show, such as interviews, still images and alternate camera angles. This aims to transform a technical director into a media publisher who can feed the show or any subsection of it to a selection of different destinations.
NewTek sums up: “With TriCaster 8000, NewTek is helping media publishers position themselves to satisfy today's video production demands. Because video production is just as much about delivering content to a wide range of second screens via the Internet and social media sites as it is about delivering a show to air.”
Tricaster 8000 is scheduled to ship during Q3. – Carolyn Giardina
