TriCaster 40 – Version 2
This new system software gives you the ability to customize graphics, create stunning visual effects, access new video formats and many other premium capabilities for an enhanced production experience with next-generation TriCaster 40 – version 2.
Version 2 of TriCaster 40 gives students, schools, corporate video departments, small organizations and communities, video bloggers, and independent producers unprecedented access to the same production capabilities used by major networks – including customizable animated transitions, network-style titles and graphics, improved file interoperability and much more.
With a broad range of new production capabilities, TriCaster 40 now enables video producers to create stunning HD television-style video broadcasts. Users can look forward to:
Creating more engaging content with network-style, highly designed visuals that deliver a polished, post-production look to live productions, in real time;
Creating and customizing transitions and effects, using the now included Animation Store Creator to produce full color full motion overlays, audio for both directions and even warped video mapped against any 3D surface for the highest-impact presentations possible;
Adding a dedicated title station inside the TriCaster, with the included LiveText application onboard for creating unique HD titles and graphics with hundreds of pre-loaded templates, displaying real-time data, and using vector-based drawing tools and extensive text options for designing custom graphics;
Enhancing the viewing experience with new video formats, recording options and session resolutions to reach more viewers on the platforms they watch;
Maximizing production efficiency and minimizing disruptions with new workflows for capturing to disk and exporting to external applications for the smoothest content creation; and,
Improving visual quality and consistency, correcting for variances in the video signal on every input, and tightly calibrating white, black and color levels for every source to broadcast-acceptable standards with preview scopes.
TriCaster 40 all-in-one live production system instantly empowers stations and pros on a small budget, students in the classroom, corporate departments, small organizations and communities, video bloggers, performers, and independent producers to create the professional-looking programs they envision. Even on a small budget, anyone can capture live HD video, share it with the world, and look like a pro doing it. TriCaster 40 helps them create a professional looking show and deliver their message anywhere, whether over the air, in a live venue, or to their own Web channel.
With its desktop design, integrated production capabilities and easy-to-use toolset, TriCaster 40 simplifies video production for anyone. It eliminates complicated setup and cabling between production components by integrating video switching, television-style effects, recording, and streaming in one compact solution.
No need to build an entire studio or construct a small science project of piecemeal components: just plug in, add cameras and audio, and create.
??There is no other all-in-one live production and streaming system with a more complete set of real-time video production capabilities than TriCaster 40.
Includes four-camera/14-channel switcher, multiple video layers, 3D effects, still images, sophisticated titling, animated transitions and media players, all integrated into production.
Ability to stream, project, record, or broadcast, from the same system, at the same time live production is taking place.
Media server incorporated for clip capture, playback and program record, saving racks of space and equipment.
Network inputs, with software app for selecting computer displays as video sources, eliminate need for scan conversion devices.
Virtual sets included, 24 of them, with multiple camera angles, distinct set locations, doublebox effects, moving backgrounds – no additional, expensive hardware or add-on software.
??Entry-level product, and entry-level price, erase barriers to professional production.
TriCaster 40 utilizes a familiar, easy-to-learn UI used by top broadcasters worldwide.
Its price starting under $5,000 (US) makes it accessible to customers who previously couldn’t afford to develop live programming, create real-time productions of events and shows, or stream truly professional video programs to the Web.
All-in-one video solution enables use of current cameras, and unifies quality among cameras (even different types); provides high production value; full control of every aspect of a program; and the ability to monitor, project, broadcast, stream, and post for on-demand viewing.
It’s a turnkey system that doesn’t require the spec, purchase or integration of additional I/O hardware, a separate computer for interfacing or operation, or third-party wares like expensive traditional hardware switchers or hybrid software/hardware units do.
??Portable (and A/V Cartable) makes it easy to share, move, store, set up and deploy.
No complex, separate components that require configuration or cabling.
Just take it anywhere, plug in cameras and audio – add a monitor – and start creating.
??Live streaming is built directly into multi-camera production.
Encode and broadcast A/V output to the Web during production.
Choose your own CDN and store in presets for quick one-button streaming access.
Stream secondary program during output to projection or broadcast if desired.
??Professional component HD is a broadcast standard, compared to consumer-grade
Multiple international standards exist for the use of analog component in broadcast television, made even more robust with its use along professional coaxial cable (even over long cable runs) and with industrial-grade BNC connectors (easily available and included with purchase).
HDMI, a high-quality consumer standard, is often described as superior for home viewing and other short-run uses (such as monitoring of a TriCaster 40 live production).
