NewTek TriCaster Mini Advanced HD-4sdi Bundle: TriCaster Mini HD-4sdi (w/ Integrated Display and 2 Internal Drives), TriCaster Mini CS, and NewTek custom travel case. The HD-4sdi has 4 SDI inputs – to get a TriCaster Mini with HDMI inputs, check out the HD-4i. The TriCaster Mini HD-4sdi Bundle is an all-in-one turnkey package ready for input.

With 16 switcher channels (6 external video sources, 5 internal video sources plus 1 black internal video source, and 4 standard M/E busses), the TriCaster Mini has hundreds of built-in capabilities for switching, streaming, recording, and publishing. Unique to the TriCaster Mini, monitor in real-time directly on the unit itself – no external monitor required. It also features two 750GB internal drives for multimedia storage, playback, and capture.

The Mini HD-4sdi Bundle includes the TriCaster Mini Control Surface providing hands-on control over your live video production with faster, more accurate interaction than point and click mouse/monitor workflow. Combined with a custom travel case (only sold in this bundle, not sold separately), you’ve got a portable, studio-style workstation at any location.
