NewTek 860 Overview

The NewTek TriCaster 860 Live Video Production System with Control Surface features a 24-channel switcher with 8 M/Es, eight-source ISO recording, real-time multi-channel media delivery with simultaneous streaming and social media publishing, and a powerful integrated effects system.

The TriCaster 860 Control Surface is specifically designed for the TriCaster 860 series live production systems, and offers you complete control over video sources and functions in your live production. With an intuitive layout and familiar live production controls at your command, adding the control surface to your control room or live truck puts you in touch with your live production like never before.

Turnkey Solution

Based on the innovative concept of a single system to broadcast, project, stream and record, simultaneously, TriCaster 860’s multiple turnkey functions do the work usually requiring racks of equipment, but integrated into a robust rackmount frame instead. Just one system replaces gear for recording, encoding, switching, submixing, playback, audio mixing, DVE, advanced graphics and titling, animation store, scan conversion, multiple channels of virtual sets, live streaming, camera automation, scopes and monitors, and social media publishing.

Facility-class Installation

With TriCaster 860’s redundant power supply and multi-tiered fail-safe measures, you have industrial-strength performance and the ability to adapt to your facility or truck. All audio and video, monitoring and network connectors are easily accessible from the rear for installation in industry standard 19″ rackmount configurations. Professional SDI, as well as analog connectivity, external timecode support, genlock, more-extensive format compatibility for integration with nearly any workflow, and a long list of file types allow TriCaster 860 to ease into your infrastructure and seamlessly handle your most challenging needs.

Mix-and-Match I/O

TriCaster 860 provides connectivity to prepare for any location scenario. Connect multiple cameras (up to 8) with the capability to mix and match connection types, including SDI, component, composite and Y/C; and even camera types with varying SD and HD resolutions and formats. Equally flexible outputs can send a variety of feeds to multiple destinations and displays – even send a signal to another TriCaster over the network with a network output.

8-channel ISO Source Recording

IsoCorder multi-track video recording technology combines the capabilities of literally racks of video capture equipment. This innovative technology saves loads of space, enhancing your studio with a powerful, built-in, real-time ISO recording system of all 8 camera inputs, simultaneously – right inside the user interface. Record any combination of your finished show, a clean feed, raw source captures from any camera, or more, at full resolution.

24-channel Multi-Camera Production

With the 24-channel, multi-camera TriCaster 860, you have nearly every possible live and stored source at your fingertips. It supports up to 8 cameras in any HD and SD configuration, color correction, keying, cropping, scaling, and frame sync on every input. It also features 2 digital media players for video clips (long or short form), 3 slots for graphics, titles and sounds, and 2 network channels for sharing computer screens and displays from wireless iOS devices. Now add 8 M/E banks to stage live virtual sets, create real-time compositions and presets, and submixes that can act as upstream switchers (or secondary programs out), when you need to give your big show even bigger impact.

Expanded Media Sources: Buffers and Network Inputs

TriCaster 860 gives producers instant access to even more content in real time, without adding equipment or crew. Ten still buffers and 5 animation buffers provide 15 bonus ‘always on’ sources. And enhanced network inputs support cloud video, streaming servers, remote cameras, remotely hosted clips, USB cameras and more, dramatically expanding content and programming possibilities without taking up a hardware input.

Audio Mixing

The TriCaster integrated multi-channel audio mixer is loaded with enhancements that raise the caliber of your shows’ sound to the same professional, network quality as the visuals. Unprecedented routing, customization, control and flexibility – and further opportunities for sound configuration and delivery like simulcast audio, multi-language presentation, and mix-minus applications (such as Skype calls and phoners) – without the investment in scores of external hardware. If live control by an audio operator is what you want, you get full support for mixing from our iPad remote mixer app, the Avid Artist Mix control surface, and other third-party audio control interfaces.

Visual & Motion Effects

TriCaster 860 hosts the most powerful integrated effects engine in live production to customize your brand, even for multiple shows, with a polish that makes an impression on quality-savvy audience. From full-color, animated transitions with alpha channel and embedded audio, to imaginative elements like real-time cloth dynamics, 3D video warping and transformations with TransWarp effects and motion overlays. Create your own branded, custom effects using the included Animation Store Creator application, and real-time, multi-layered compositions with 8 M/E rows and motion effects.

Automation

Automation functions in TriCaster 860 help you experiment with more complex sequences but leave nothing to chance during a live production. Reduce on-air mistakes with macros – streamline real-time shot sequences that make the show look more sophisticated, but are too complicated to execute live and risk costly errors. Unlimited external control functions with MIDI sequencing enables show control of nearly any command, or offloading tasks to additional crew. With hotspots, talent can trigger automated sequences requiring extraordinary timing with on-camera gestures, effectively controlling a segment without an operator. And add remotely controlled robotic cameras as input sources, without the need to add camera operators.

Virtual Sets

Even if your set is really a multi-purpose room or the corner of a studio, your viewers will not only see your professional brand shine through-they’ll see any world you want to create, without the high cost or heavy construction. With TriCaster 860 system’s virtual sets, you can elevate your look with realistic foregrounds and live moving backgrounds. Not just high-end studio looks either: take a panoramic of any location with your smart phone, or a 3D model from any universe you create, and make it your scene using our holographic LiveSet capability, bringing augmented reality that much closer to live. Add real-time energy to any virtual set with two live sources-each with overlay, all with transitions, sounds, 3D DVEs and effects. Live camera moves and shot changes during production bring your new location to life.

Social Media Publishing

With a brief setup beforehand and the real-time grab of a shot, generate second-screen content for sites like YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter during the live show, and extend your brand to online and second-screen platforms, or share assets to common storage locations for instant access by others. Hey, set it all up with a macro and just push a button, and you’ve increased your program exposure without adding equipment, personnel, or lag time.

Fail-Safes / Redundancy

TriCaster 860 provides multi-tiered redundant fail-safe mechanisms in both hardware and software. Redundant, removable power supplies and hot-swappable hard drives protect from physical interruptions. Fail-safe software monitors live performance, and video pass-through, streaming output and recording continue through unexpected error conditions.

Capacity

TriCaster 860 offers huge capacity for recorded media. Use it for storing files for use in your live productions – 5 integrated digital media players are on-hand to augment your production, on top of your 10 live and 8 virtual sources, and for ISO recording your individual camera sources for later postproduction. Need more? Swap out media drives for more capacity. Use the session library to save settings and assets for each production.

Post-production

TriCaster 860 is not just about live. It’s a content creation machine. 8-channel ISO recording enables the capture of all the raw sources coming into the program, for later repurposing or re-use. And with QuickTime encoded files embedded with timecode and 4 audio tracks, your media floats effortlessly between TriCaster, Mac, and Windows platforms, and all common editing and post-production software. Our codecs for Mac and PC let you equip your entire facility to encode media assets for optimized, real-time playback.

External and Third-Party Applications

Through our third-party developer network, TriCaster 860 supports an extended set of products that work directly with the system to provide innovative solutions and workflows in several different areas of your live production, including streaming, graphics, content and controllers. Our SDK enables developers and customers to tap into the power of TriCaster functionality, add applications that enhance the production workflow, and further extend integration with standard and custom installations. And our own suite of peripheral applications and hardware control surfaces rounds out the total solution.
