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.*
*TriCaster Advanced Edition is compatible with current Pro Line TriCasters and TriCaster Mini.
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.
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.
Expanded IP Workflows
Take advantage of more open production management with new IP workflows. Manage audio devices from anywhere in your facility into TriCaster with input of digital audio over IP from any Dante-enabled system on your network. Maintain control over your live shots with network tally that displays tally information for all connected systems—including 3Play™ and TalkShow™—when their output is supplied to your TriCaster.
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.
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.Interface
TriCaster Advanced Edition software adds more than 60 next-level tools and capabilities to TriCaster Pro Line and TriCaster Mini systems. These are just some of the highlights of its advanced user interface.
Create clips for in-show replay from any active IsoCorder recording channel with one-click dashboard button control (or number pad key entry) and configurable settings.
Identify the current switcher selections with updated tally indicators that frame the Live Desktop monitors—plus Program and Preview labels that display the active source.
Apply borders and shadow effects to add detail and depth to overlays and multi-layer compositions, or combine framed layers to create custom multi-box effects, choosing from hundreds of included designs or creating your own.
Incorporate real-time data from internal and external sources in TriCaster productions – including webpages, spreadsheets, scoreboards, databases, and RSS feeds – to display statistics, results, time data, social media posts and more.
Double the number of overlay visuals for M/E compositions in TriCaster 860, 460, 410 and Mini with a second KEY layer to apply titles, graphics, buffer animations and picture-in-picture video.
Insert transitions and custom animated effects between media player files to produce engaging video playlists, dynamic image slideshows, and flashy highlight sequences.
Manage stored media and playback settings more easily and efficiently with playlist mode, a deeper configuration menu, and on-screen Set In and Set Out buttons to edit clips and graphics in real time.
Trigger clip playback—automatically or on-demand—to seamlessly roll in-show replays on Program or any M/E, with configurable in and out transitions, and automatic return to live output.
Add more motion sources to TriCaster 410 and Mini productions, while saving the DDRs for video playback, with 5 of the 15 buffers enhanced to roll stored animations, motion graphics and looping clips
Optionally lock KEY layer elements to any position in a virtual set, producing striking embedded visuals that track with LiveSet zoom and pan movements.
Manage and monitor sound with an enhanced audio mixer interface that includes more operator-friendly on-screen faders, adjusted VU meter gradients, and clipping alerts for increased confidence.
Preview your next switch, test different effects, or experiment with composition – in full motion and in real time – without interfering with switcher selections or disrupting output.

LIVE PRODUCTION OVER IP
Never again worry about having enough inputs. Free your live productions from the constraints of hardware connections and miles of cable. Avoid costly investments in excessive bandwidth.
Explore the limitless live production possibilities at your fingertips when you can access, route, and switch live over IP. With a workflow built on the Network Device Interface (NDI)™ protocol, you can access any video source. Anywhere on the network. NewTek’s Advanced IP Workflow.Standard networking. Exponential power.
IT STARTS HERE.
As the leader in IP video, NewTek pioneered hybrid IT production switchers a decade ago with the introduction of TriCaster®, harnessing the untapped processing power of commercially available computer technology to make professional video more affordable. Today, our systems are leading the way for broadcasters and video facilities to bridge their transition to IP-based workflows.
THE POWER OF n.
Our groundbreaking Network Device Interface is the foundation of NewTek’s Advanced IP Workflow. Anyone can implement NDI to make devices available as video sources or destinations over a LAN, using our sophisticated encoding and communication methods that provide unsurpassed efficiency over standard networking bandwidth.
With NewTek’s Advanced IP Workflow, producers can receive and switch any video source enabled on the LAN—with an exponential twist: our “network effect” also recognizes the video sources connected to other production switchers too. Multiply creativity to include more sources. Wherever they are.
Location and distance are no longer obstacles. You don’t have to directly attach devices, wrangle cables when changing locations, or sacrifice sources for limited hardware inputs. You can even borrow inputs from other switchers in the facility and switch them from a different location, all over the network.
Our native encoding process, perfected over years of developing IT-based production systems, delivers any resolution and format as low-latency, frame-accurate video virtually indiscernible from the signal viewed directly from the camera.
Unlike expensive, dual-10Gbps Ethernet networks typical of many emerging IP architectures, a standard GigE LAN infrastructure is all that’s needed to accommodate NewTek’s efficient, live IP video workflow. Do more productions, save more money.
TRY IT FIRST IN TRICASTER.
The first step in enabling your existing production for the IP future is already here. TriCaster customers who upgrade to TriCaster Advanced Edition software enabled with NDI unlock IP connectivity for each existing camera input (and gain four new IP inputs) to grow any production immediately. What’s more, now you can see and switch inputs and outputs from any other updated TriCaster—and other compatible developer solutions—on your network.
