NewTek today introduced the TriCaster Mini, the newest addition to the TriCaster product line and “the world’s most complete and compact video production system,” according to the company announcement.
“The plug-and-play setup of TriCaster Mini allows new video producers to get started quickly and easily work their way up to creating more sophisticated programs, in resolutions up to 4K, for delivery to all of today’s screens,” according to the NewTek announcement.
The NewTek TriCaster Mini’s size and weight “allows storytellers to take it anywhere, set up and get started in minutes,” the company announcement says.
The product includes hundreds of entry-level and advanced production tools including built-in virtual sets, animated transition effects, replay for sporting events, streaming, recording, projecting, one-touch social media publishing and more.
“Everyone has amazing stories to tell, and video is the most powerful way to deliver your message. That’s why we strive to make it fun and exciting to create,” said Dr. Andrew Cross, president of R&D for Vizrt Group, parent brand of NewTek and NDI, in the company announcement.
“Whether you’re a student, a corporate communications manager, or a seasoned video professional, TriCaster Mini has everything to get you going and make broadcast quality shows you can stream to all your favorite social media outlets,” said Cross in the NewTek announcement.
Inside the NewTek TriCaster Mini
TriCaster Mini’s eight external video inputs will support any combination of compatible sources in resolutions up to 4K UHD.
TriCaster Mini’s four plug-and-play NDI connections with power-over-Ethernet (PoE) makes video, audio, tally, power and control as easy as plugging in an Ethernet cable. Two included input modules with PoE directly connect existing HDMI devices, upgrading them to NDI-compatible sources.
Exclusive to the new TriCaster Mini is the NDI|HX camera application for mobile devices available as a download from the Apple store. This allows video, up to 4K UHD from an iOS device, to transmit over Wi-Fi as an NDI source and connect with TriCaster Mini systems on the network.
NewTek TriCaster Mini will be available this month with packages starting from $8,995 US MSRP. International pricing will vary.
