Mobile producers, independent video and Web TV experts, advanced worship producers, and corporate video departments are the inspiration for TriCaster 460's boldly-go-anywhere attitude. For anyone producing professional real-time video in small or roving bases of operation  getting there is just the start.

The most versatile and extensive of our mobile-scale multi-camera video solutions, TriCaster 460's any-format, any-resolution, any frame-rate I/O and amped-up production capabilities let you connect any camera, access any available video source, and go live from locations you've only imagined. And, with 3D and holographic sets, you can go live from virtually any world.

Produce a 4-camera show that looks infinitely bigger, with layered video, real-time compositions, and multiple submixes that give the look of adding 4 other switchers into the stream. Deliver multi-channel media with simultaneous streaming and social media publishing. Record every feed for later remixing, sweetening, or just fixing mistakes but leave the expensive, extraneous decks, encoders, and other superfluous gear for others to set up and take down while you?re on the move. And, TriCaster 460 packs it all into a 2U frame.

When the show's over in the field, get the source footage to your creative team for tricked-out postproduction, or create whole new programs from the media you already captured. With TriCaster 460, your revenue opportunities are just taking off.

Product Essentials:

  • 4-M/E, 15-channel video switching with audio mixer, titles, warping transitions, buffers, DSK and DVE effects
  • Flexible I/O with mix-and-match HD and SD component, composite, and SDI connectivity for any resolution, frame synced for optimal video processing
  • Customizable visuals to brand each program with its own high-end look and feel
  • Virtual sets with 3D environments and panoramic appearance, including realistic camera movements
  • Extensive automation and breakout control of commands and complex sequences
  • Custom, interactive elements and effects sequences triggered by talent
  • Publish to social networks, stream live, record and project  simultaneously
  • Record each camera feed for later production with our groundbreaking IsoCorder multi-track capture technology
  • Post-production workflows with extensive file format compatibility and removable storage
  • Deliver from a van, small studio, broadcast control room, backstage, blogger's workspace
Your small to mid-size productions will make you look like a television giant with astonishing flexibility and mobility. Turnkey Production

Based on the innovative concept of a single system to broadcast, project stream, and record simultaneously, TriCaster 460's multiple turnkey functions do the work usually requiring racks of equipment, but integrated into a small, van-friendly footprint instead. Just one system replaces gear for recording, encoding, switching, submixing, playback, audio mixing, DVE, advanced graphics and titling, animation store, scan conversion, multiple channels of virtual sets, live streaming, camera automation, scopes and monitors, and social media publishing.

Scaled for Mobility

Professional-grade gear in a compact size. Industry-standard analog and digital connectivity, along with swift setup and teardown for in-and-out coverage, make the most of just 2U of rack space in a production vehicle or other space, and help you gain a freedom of movement that's just not possible with racks of individual components pieced together. Available with or without a compact counter-sunk or countertop control surface that goes anywhere.

Mix-and-Match I/O

TriCaster 460 provides connectivity to prepare for any location scenario. Connect multiple cameras with the capability to mix and match connection types, including SDI, component, composite and Y/C; and even camera types with varying SD and HD resolutions and formats. Equally flexible outputs can send a variety of feeds to multiple destinations and displays even send a signal to another TriCaster over the network with a network output.

4-channel, Multi-Format ISO Source Recording

NewTek's seriously forward-thinking IsoCorder technology combines the capabilities of racks and racks of video capture equipment, providing multi-track, multi-format recording of up to four simultaneous channels. Record any combination of your finished show, a clean feed, raw source captures from any camera, or more, at full resolution directly from the user interface.

15-channel Multi-camera Production

Connectivity for 4 camera sources. Color correction, keying, cropping, scaling, and frame sync on every input. Video playback from 2 DDRs not just short clips with an overly restrictive frame count: we're talking full-length packages and whatever else you need. Digital media from 2 built-in graphic and sound slots. 2 network sources for sharing computer displays, wireless iOS devices, or any over-the-network source. And 4 M/E banks to stage live virtual sets, create real-time compositions and presets, and submixes that can act as upstream switchers (or secondary programs out).

Expanded Media Sources: Buffers and Network Inputs

Providing greater built-in source variety than any other 15-channel system is just the start. TriCaster 460 gives producers instant access to even more content in real time, without adding equipment or crew. 10 still buffers and 5 animation buffers provide 15 bonus always on sources. And enhanced network inputs support cloud video, streaming servers, remote cameras, remotely hosted clips, USB cameras and more, dramatically expanding content and programming possibilities without taking up a hardware input.

Audio Mixing

The TriCaster integrated multi-channel audio mixer is loaded with enhancements that raise the caliber of your shows sound to the same professional, network quality as the visuals. Unprecedented routing, customization, control and flexibility?and further opportunities for sound configuration and delivery like simulcast audio, multi-language presentation, and mix-minus applications (such as Skype calls and phoners)without the investment in scor
