  • 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
