NewTek TriCaster 460 Special with TriCaster Advanced and TC860 Control Surface

Unlock Your Production Potential
TriCaster™ Advanced Edition

Right out of the box, your TriCaster is the most complete multi-camera production system on the planet. And now you can advance it even further.
With no additional hardware needed, power up your productions with TriCaster Advanced Edition software. Unlock your TriCaster’s potential with more than 60 production-enabling capabilities that will push your shows way beyond expectations.

Standard Networking. Exponential Power.

Open up new frontiers with NewTek’s own NDI (Network Device Interface)* powering your video productions—over IP. Send and receive real-time, frame-accurate video from cameras and devices in different locations, all on a standard network infrastructure. Access the inputs and outputs of any compatible device on your network, tapping into exponentially more media sources for any production. Grow your channel count with additional inputs, mixing any video from both hardware connections and IP video sources. And seamlessly integrate audio over IP, connecting to Dante-enabled audio devices anywhere in your facility.

Drive Graphics with Data

Free your production from the monumental time and effort of manually inputting data for on-screen graphics. Deliver beautiful, template-based graphics with real-time feeds from internal or external sources, and minimize data-entry errors with automated, data-driven graphics.

Smarter Control
Give yourself more time to focus on critical production responsibilities. Allow your TriCaster to automate and control the more straightforward parts of your shows. You’ll benefit from greater command over in-show production with highly customizable programming and triggering for macro controls, self-detecting inputs, auto-correcting color match settings, and intelligent mix/effects settings.

Capture Every Audience

Reach more viewers wherever they consume media, and grow your brand’s reach with the ability to share your content in more places and on the right channels.

TriCaster Advanced Edition provides faster setups and higher-performing live streaming to multiple channels at once—and to the namedrop-worthy Microsoft Azure and YouTube Live channels. The new edition includes social sharing on more platforms and in more account combinations than ever possible before.

Increase Inputs, Virtually

Dramatically increase your TriCaster’s inputs—without the addition of extra hardware—thanks to expanded router support. With TriCaster Advanced Edition, now you can multiply the number of cameras and live video inputs available with upstream router control on every TriCaster Pro Line system—even TriCaster Mini. You never have to limit your camera count again.

Mix Live. Look Like Post.

Put more than just switched cameras into your live show with real-time elements that shrink post-production time and give live viewers a treat. Pre-produced packages, ISO-recorded clips, and active recordings can all be mixed, trimmed, and edited during the program—with new playlist effects and transitions between DDR media to create compelling live mixes, and even in-show replay to recreate memorable moments at any speed.

Maximum Sophistication

Achieve all new levels of visual mastery from your TriCaster 860 or 460 with premium mix/effects and overlay capabilities never before available on NewTek’s core systems. Produce unbelievably sophisticated on-screen compositions that captivate audiences, stacking layer upon layer of submixes with M/E re-entry. Get more from your green screen, placing talent into elaborate virtual environments that support up to 4 simultaneous sources. And explore new titling and branding opportunities with 4 DSK overlays on the switcher and 4 KEY layers on each M/E — more than tripling the number of overlay effects channels available for every production.

Create Your Masterpiece

Realize boundless creative expression and create maximum visual impact with improved graphics processing, upgraded rendering, a boosted effects engine, and top-level capabilities like sweet border and box effects you can design and customize yourself. Create new dimensions for your virtual sets with augmented layers of 3D graphics or text that appear—and behave—as though they’re elements within the studio, interacting with your talent, tracking with the camera, and floating in the set.
