    TriCaster Virtual Set Editor 2.5

    By simulating the polished appearance and immersive atmosphere of state-of-the-art studio settings, NewTek TriCaster live virtual sets provide a highly affordable alternative for customers who are challenged with limited budgets for set design, construction and maintenance—and at the same time, provide new opportunities for elevating production values, creating brand identities, and expanding content creation.

    TriCaster Live Virtual Sets Typical Virtual Set Systems Physical Sets
    Cost-effective alternative to physical sets for live production Often expensive and complex for live production, or limited to post-production compositing Expensive to build, change and maintain
    Easy for anyone to use with no additional crew Usually require a skilled operator, technician or engineer Require technicians, engineers, and multiple crew members
    Require little setup and space – only a small green screen or solid color backdrop and basic lighting Some require large, dedicated space, green screen cyclorama, extensive setup and system configuration Require dedicated location, careful planning for every camera angle, extensive setup and supporting equipment
    Complete freedom to move, use and replicate from any production location Typically restricted to a fixed, pre-configured location with
    specific lighting requirements
    Restricted to the dedicated location where physical set and supporting equipment reside
    Life-like virtual environments with realistic foregrounds and backgrounds, motion elements, real-time reflections, shadows and specular highlights

    Flat 2D backgrounds or 3D models with overly artificial appearance and limited options for motion

    Significant material investments and expensive electronics, plus networking and cabling required to incorporate visual display and motion elements
    Variety of settings, set locations and presentation options, including box effects Usually confined to a single, static 2D or 3D model Fixed set locations with additional DVE equipment required in order to increase presentation options
    Multi-angle virtual sets allow for distinct presentation areas and content-specific locations for program segments (ex. news, sports, weather, interviews, etc.) Basic 2D backgrounds that do not provide variable set locations or 3D models that require complex configuration and intricate operation to move between locations Require construction of distinct set locations to accommodate different looks and arrangements
    Easily swap out elaborate set designs to accommodate different programming types (news, sports, talk, tech, entertainment, etc.)

    Limited set designs, extensive reconfiguration, or additional purchase required

    Changing set design involves additional construction and arrangement
    Configure camera angles and trigger free-form, animated camera movements (zoom, pan and scan, tilt and pedestal) without touching cameras Fixed angles only, or physically move and adjust cameras Fixed angles only, or physically move and adjust cameras
    Up to 4 live channels per set and capable of compositing multiple live and stored sources together Typically involve per-channel purchase and require talent to be live and on camera Require talent to be live and on camera
    Combine and freely position live, on-camera talent and stored sources in 3D virtual space, without physical movement of cameras or talent On-camera talent confined to fixed position in front of a 2D rendered background or digitally positioned in 3D virtual space by moving cameras manually

    On-camera talent restricted to fixed position on-set and cameras moved manually within limited physical space

    Easily create custom sets using NewTek Virtual Set Editor software (sold separately) Require 3D graphic artist to build new sets or per-set purchase from third-party companies Require additional construction and space to build new sets
    Capture panoramic images of real-world locations with a smartphone and transform into photorealistic 3D virtual space
    (requires Virtual Set Editor)
    Most restricted to 2D rendered backgrounds or 3D studio models Restricted to studio location and aesthetics
    Included with TriCaster, making it possible to produce from a virtual set right out of the box Typically require separate purchase and additional integration with production gear like robotic camera systems and motion tracking hardware Require construction, material investments and operational costs that affect lead time and increase overall production expenses
