NewTek TriCaster TriCaster 8000 + 8000CS

You work in a world where complex productions are the norm. And producing content at a superhuman pace is expected. TriCaster 8000 lets you reach more viewers—on more screens and in more places—with incredibly sophisticated shows.

A highly configurable, broadcast-integrated content production platform, TriCaster 8000 allows you to dominate vastly scale-able, creative live productions with access to all available content at your fingertips. You have total integration with existing gear, and the ability to move from the most straightforward, to the most complex events with ease. Publish to social media platforms during production, and adapt to any custom configuration—even extended ones with upstream routers and mirrored systems. With unprecedented capabilities for automation and control, the more complex your program, the easier you can make it all come together.

Operators can easily keep up with the higher demands of live production control, and the need to deliver live media to multiple outlets, behind the console of the TriCaster 8000 CS. With every function under fingertip control, it’s the most practical and coolest way to handle the heat of a hot production.

NewTek TriCaster Advanced Edition Demonstration.


Virtually Unlimited Scalability
Add router control to multiply camera sources and deliver to more outputs without conversion, look even bigger with multi-input virtual sets; or downsize for a small-scale show, seamlessly


Mirroring
Support for synchronized, mirrored operation between multiple TriCaster 8000 systems connected to the same local network to provide fail-safe operation and expand programming opportunities

Media Publishing
Instantly publish content to popular social media sites; upload to FTP sites, or transfer to storage volumes and network locations; share clips and stills during production, or upload your entire show within minutes after production wraps

Automation
Streamline sophisticated operation sequences that are too complex for real-time action with custom Macro commands; extend control behind the scenes and in front of the camera with MIDI support and interactive Hot Spots; add robotic PTZ cameras that you can control remotely without the need for additional staff.

Holographic Live Virtual Sets
Import custom, photo-realistic virtual environments created from panoramic images captured with a smartphone, point-and-shoot, or DSLR camera, with support for 3D positioning of sources and live virtual camera movements (requires Virtual Set Editor software, which is sold separately).
