It boosts your content strategy with integrated social media sharing to publish to your host of social networks live, keeping your brand consistent and your audience engaged. And, with the world's most powerful integrated effects system, it creates a mind-blowing, custom-branded visual masterpiece. TriCaster 8000 lets you blaze your own path through productions of any scale.

NewTek FG-000036-R001 Features

  • Production of Any Scale: The extraordinary versatility of the 24-channel TriCaster 8000 lets you scale up or down to accommodate every program imaginable. Expand to unprecedented coverage with massive, multi-camera production through external video routers
  • Social Media Integration: In the age of second and third screens, your social media image is critical to developing a following-not to mention, grabbing the attention of sponsors, advertisers and partnership opportunities
  • Endless Customization: TriCaster 8000 stands apart from the most subdued production designs, to the most fanciful-with ease, thanks to an intuitive, endlessly configurable architecture that puts every idea into the realm of possibility
  • Multi-Track ISO Recording: IsoCorder multi-track video recording technology captures incoming sources into the system, saving all your live footage-without the need for racks and racks of video capture equipment
  • Electrifying Visual Effects: Being recognizable, instantly-across all media requires a style that makes an impression on your audience. TriCaster 8000 hosts the most powerful integrated effects engine in live production
  • Sophisticated Sequences-Simplified: With TriCaster 8000, elaborate live production sequences are no longer nail-biters. You know how they'll turn out, because you automate them yourself. String together complex effects and creative elements with macros, seamlessly
  • Stunning Studio Sets and Backgrounds: Even if your "set" is really a multi-purpose room or the corner of a studio, your viewers will only see your professional brand shine through. With TriCaster 8000 system's virtual sets, you can elevate your look with realistic foregrounds & moving backgrounds
  • New Dimensions in Live 3D Video: With the anaglyph filter affect, 3D video streams can be switched just like any other source-without requiring either complex configuration steps, or cumbersome operator manipulations
  • Record Live Streaming Video, Simultaneously: You live for "live" and on-demand, as do your viewers. Gear up right for the modern way to watch-anytime, anywhere-with both Web streaming and program recording built right into your production operation
  • One-Size-Fits-All File Compatibility: A large-scale production environment can easily take on a life of its own. TriCaster 8000 intelligently adapts to the nuances of your creative process, natively supporting a massive array of media formats
  • Remote Audio Control: The integrated multi-channel audio mixer supports a companion Apple iPad application that delivers fingertip control over sound, plus Avid Artist Series hardware control surfaces, if you prefer a more hands-on approach
