About the NewTek 455 Live Switcher

The NewTek TriCaster 455 A La Carte Edition Live Switcher without Control Surface is the complete TriCaster 455 package only lacking a control surface and thus considerably discounted. A mouse and keyboard do come included and can be used instead of a control surface. You can also of course use a control surface you may already own.

TriCaster 455 is a 4-camera input, tightly integrated hardware and software solution for streaming video online and producing live events. The TriCaster comes with two powerful software applications - a live production software and a character generation and vector graphics software. Altogether the package offers built-in multi-track ISO recording with broadcast, projector and online output options, completely customizable visuals, powerful 3D effects, video playback, graphics and transitions, virtual sets and more.

Digital and analog outputs allow streaming to broadcast machines and to live projectors. And very importantly, you can connect to a network by Ethernet and stream videos directly to the web. At the same time, you can store files to internal storage drives or by AUX output also to external drives.

The 455 is a 2RU device designed for mobility. It doesn't require any massive cabling or complex configurations and you can deliver with it from a van, small studio, broadcast control room, backstage, blogger's workspace or pretty much anywhere else.
