NewTek has unveiled TriCaster Mini, the world’s most complete and compact multimedia studio, the company claims. The portable system allows anyone to quickly transform an ordinary presentation into multimedia content that looks like network-style TV.
Anyone familiar with computer software and with access to one or more cameras can use TriCaster Mini to capture and mix multiple live video camera angles with graphics, video clips, audio, titles and special effects. An integrated and configurable video screen on the side of the system serves as a monitor for displaying content selected by the user.
A range of creative tools come standard with TriCaster Mini, including:
The ability to mix different visual sources
Overlay logos, presentations, charts, titles, media files, animations
Replace solid backgrounds with a simulated environment
Webcast programmes on a live video stream
Post clips to YouTube, Facebook and Twitter
Dr. Andrew Cross, president and chief technical officer for NewTek, commented: “Video is the fastest growing and most compelling communication medium in history, and to stay relevant, people in all areas are finding it increasingly important to conduct video interviews, webcasts, and presentations that mix slides, video clips, graphics and more. No other system in the world makes it as easy for anyone to get started than TriCaster Mini.”
Workflow is just one of the areas which will be celebrated at the TVBAwards, two weeks today. Featured in the awards within the Workflow category are projects as diverse as The Honourable Woman (for which dock 10 has been nominated), The X Factor (Gearhouse Broadcast), and UK Education catch-up TV service (Cambridge Imaging Systems).

Awards will be presented across Capture, Delivery and Workflow categories, with an additional four Special Awards. The TVBAwards takes place at the Hilton London Wembley on 23 October and tickets are available now.
