NewTek introduced the TriCaster TC1 in the first week of April 2017 as “The most complete production system on the planet.” The TriCaster TC1 Base Bundle
is comprised of two parts: the TriCaster TC1 2RU
Live Production System and the TC1SP Control Panel
. It’s powered by software-driven live production technology and is a 16-input, multi-source video production workhorse.
With industry-leading, software-driven live production technology; a 16-input, multi-source video workflow with out-of-the-box support for four SDI hardware inputs; and an included 1.5-stripe control panel with 14 source buttons, the NewTek TriCaster TC1 Base bundle gives users everything they need to create amazing and professional video that can be made available in more places, and reach viewers — whenever and wherever they watch.
The TriCaster TC1 works to streamline multi-camera productions (live or otherwise) and to put 4K UHD video production in a more affordable package. TC1 delivers true IP switching, with native software-driven processing. It facilitates switching, streaming, recording, and delivery in HD, 3G, and 4K Ultra HD at 60 fps. Unlike other products that promise 4K UHD, only TriCaster TC1 allows you to switch, stream and record 4K UHD video without compromising the frame rate or the number of available inputs.
All-In-One Production. Outside of accepting, switching, and recording multiple video sources; the TriCaster line is known for also hosting a bevvy o advanced production capabilities: playback mix effects, graphics, audio mixing, virtual sets, and more. Because the TriCaster TC1 has built-in video servers, recording decks are redundant. Moreover, the built-in servers allow for on-demand automated playback!
