When you’re confident in what you’re doing, it shows. With TriCaster TC1, you have the proven workflows you know and the future-proof production you covet. The bottom line is being able to do production the way you need to right now and the way you want to when you are ready.
Real 4K Ultra HD. No Compromise.
Present your audience with an immersive viewing experience defined by amazing clarity and incredible detail. Produce programs, performances, events and live sports in true 4K UHD (Ultra High Definition) resolution with support for native 2160p video at 60 frames per second. 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.
Built–In Video Servers
No decks needed—just add your files with two built-in video servers for on-demand and automated playback, including auto-advancing playlists, on-cue instant replay, 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.
Multi-Source Video Mixing
Viewers have their choice of devices. You should have options, too. With 36 source channels, including 16 external inputs, you can easily create compelling content using any combination of compatible video sources, including 3G-SDI, HD-SDI and PTZ cameras, mobile devices, Skype TX video calls, computers, gaming systems, streaming media, video files, graphics, images, animations and more.
Conduct a live Skype video call with any remote guest, anywhere in the world. TriCaster TC1 is the only video production system to feature direct Skype TX software integration. The studio-grade version of the popular app, Skype TX enhances the real-time interaction with broadcast-quality video and balanced audio, allowing you to present production-ready conversations, interviews, reports, and more—regardless of the caller’s device.
Recording and Replay
Capture all the angles, record multiple channels of full-resolution video to QuickTime® or H.264 files. From archiving the master cut for your content library, to ingesting the raw camera footage for post-production, to caching production extras and presentation materials for on-demand—even capturing real-time highlights for instant replay—TriCaster TC1 easily handles the work of multiple professional decks without the added expense.
Dual-Channel Live Streaming
Stream live to your choice of new media platforms, including user-friendly presets for Facebook Live, Microsoft® Azure®, Periscope, Twitch, YouTube™ Live, and more. With two streaming encoders included, you can easily deliver platform-specific content, while opening up new sponsorship and revenue opportunities.
Social Media Integration
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. Plus, with integrated DataLink™, you can add posts and photos from your social networks in on-screen graphics for a truly interactive experience.
Live Sound Experience
Set the tone for your production with comprehensive audio integration, including a software-based audio mixer, support for digital, analogue and network audio, professional DSPs, fader control, VU metering, Talk Back communication, and 4 x 4 x 4 channel routing to four audio mix outputs.
Experience new levels of efficiency and productivity with a comprehensive macro automation system that allows you to record, store, edit, and automate your favourite settings and custom command sequences. You can even choose to run macros manually from any combination of compatible control interfaces—or set TriCaster TC1 to perform actions automatically.
Phenomenal Creative Elements
With TriCaster TC1, you have 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-bus mix effects, zero-latency video re-entry, real-time animated titles, data-driven graphics, custom animated transitions, a full-motion composition engine, and more. Let your imagination run wild.
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 TriCaster TC1 environment to your preference.
Studio-Grade Video Tools
Perfect your presentation with configurable colour correction tools, 3D object positioning, and smooth-edge cropping. Apply picture-in-picture effects with optional borders. Use key and fill to produce new composite scenes from different foreground and background elements. Even map live video to moving props and set pieces with real-time motion tracking. And so much more.
