True Resolution Independence
Present your audience with an immersive viewing experience defined by amazing clarity and incredible detail. Produce programs, performances, events and live sports in the resolution of your choice, all the way up to true 4K UHD (Ultra High Definition)
Powerful Switching & Compositing
Powered by innovative software-driven technology, TriCaster gives you the tools to turn every frame of video into an artistic masterpiece. Consider the screen a blank canvas and unleash your inner artist with multi-camera switching, mix effects, zero-latency video re-entry, custom animated transitions, a full-motion composition engine, and much more.
Integrated Real-time Motion Graphics with Adobe® Authoring
Import your own graphics from Adobe® Photoshop® or create your own custom animations with Adobe® After Effects® using NewTek LiveGraphics. It lets you work with the same Adobe® Creative Cloud® tools you already know, so there are no proprietary applications to learn or specialised training required. Use Datalink™ to import text and image links for informational graphics, sports, or social media integration.
World-Class Live Virtual Sets
Save on studio and set expenses without sacrificing production value. With integrated LiveSet™ technology, TriCaster can transport your talent into professionally-designed virtual environments, complete with multiple angles, virtual camera movements, real-time reflections, specular highlights, animated lens flares and stunning augmented reality effects that blur the line between virtual and reality.
Built-in Video Players
Add your files to the built-in video players for on-demand and automated playback, including auto-advancing playlists, live-edited highlight reels, and much more. With responsive player controls, presets, real-time editing tools, selectable transitions, and playlist effects, you have everything needed to make magic from your stored media.
Unlimited Recording & Replay
Capture all your sources during a production in any resolution or frame rate for fixes in post or archiving for later use. You can also trigger replays from the Program or Preview bus on any input without using a separate replay system.
Skype TX Integration
Conduct a live Skype video call with any remote guest, anywhere in the world. TriCaster systems are the only video production systems to feature direct Skype TX software integration with broadcast-quality video and balanced audio, allowing you to present production-ready conversations, interviews, reports, and more—regardless of the caller’s device.
Multi-screen Delivery & Streaming
It’s more important than ever to deliver content to ALL of today’s screens. You can output 16×9 video for traditional video applications. Or, change your aspect ratio to square or vertical video with no compromise in production power and stream that content using the built-in dual encoders to multiple destinations simultaneously. Unlike other products, only TriCaster allows you to switch, stream and record in into a wide array of formats, resolutions, aspect ratios, and frame rates.
Social Media Publication
Share real-time updates and on-demand content across your social media accounts, uploading images and video directly to Facebook, Imgur, LinkedIn, Twitter, Vimeo, YouTube and more—complete with comments and hashtags.
Multichannel Audio Mixing
Set the tone for your production with comprehensive audio integration, including a software-based audio mixer, support for digital, analogue, and USB audio devices, audio over IP networking with NDI®, Dante™, and AES67, professional DSPs, fader control, VU metering, Talk Back communication, and 4 x 4 x 4 channel routing to four audio mix outputs.
Real-Time Monitoring and Multiviewers
See everything happening during your production with fully adjustable single-screen or multi-screen monitoring. With three customisable multiviewers, configurable windows and workspace layouts, operator confidence monitors, visual indicators, scopes, and more, you can easily personalise the environment to your preference.
Revolutionary Automation & Teleprompter from MS Word®
With Live Story Creator, script the entire production in your favourite word processor, including production cues (camera takes, transitions, effects, graphics, clips, and more), and export as a .docx file. Load the file into your TriCaster system and run the teleprompter control to execute the entire production. Virtually anyone can run quality and consistent productions without experience or training.
Software Control Panels
Create your own software-based control panels and operate your TriCaster system from any compatible desktop or mobile device—anywhere on the network with LivePanel. Easily accessible through any Web browser or operating system, LivePanel includes production-ready control panels for remote video mixing, media playback, audio mixing, and macro automation, plus the LivePanel Builder tool to design your own custom panels geared toward your unique productions and workflows.

Connect to a wide variety of NewTek NDI-enabled products, along with the world’s largest ecosystem of third-party IP video products using a single network cable for video, audio, key, control, tally, and in some cases power over Ethernet.
