The Tricaster 460 is Newtek's all purpose video production system, scaled down for smaller racks or mobile units where spacial requirements are limited. TC460 delivers professional grade equipment that's easy to use and provides excellent flexibility for producers with mobile configurations.
This package comes with the hardware control surface and support for a range of external control devices for audio mixing, robotic camera operation, sequence commands, and even gesturebased talent triggers, TriCaster 460 gives you complete control of your content, whether you’re producing for broadcast, streaming live to the Web, projecting to a big screen, creating an engaging second-screen experience—or all of the above.
Revolutionize your moderate-sized shows with:
- 4-camera, 4-M/E 16-channel video switcher
- Integrated audio mixer, media players, titles, graphics, and DVE effects
- Versatile 2U rackmount frame
- Either all-digital SDI I/O, or mix-and-match analog and digital SD/HD
Look like a TV giant without the stacks of gear
Designed to deliver maximum impact with a minimal footprint, TriCaster 460 and 410 are ideal for producers who need to create high-end video smoother, faster, and easier.
Turnkey, 15-Channel Multi-Camera
Connectivity for 4 cameras. Video playback for full-length packages or short b-roll clips. Media bins for graphics and sound files. Network sources for sharing computer displays or any network source. And mix/effects to craft compositions and virtual sets from truly realistic to the most elaborate imaginable.
4-Channel Mixing and Recording
Be seriously forward-thinking about every asset you capture, with IsoCorder™ technology providing multi-track, multi-format recording of up to four simultaneous channels—for repurposing later or creating an entire new program.
2U rackmount chassis
Hardware and software fail-safe
Mountains of gear are a thing of the past. Make the most of just 2U of rack space in a flightpack or tight space, and gain a freedom of movement that's just not possible with racks of individual components pieced together.
Take it easier. Record common moves with macros, and expand production possibilities while reducing on-air mistakes. Streamline sequences with a single click when they’re too complicated to execute live. Use MIDI control, on-camera hotspots, and PTZ cameras to make smaller productions look like larger shows.
Generate second-screen content for social networks during the live show, and extend your brand to online and second-screen platforms; or share assets to other locations for instant access by postproduction teams. The more audiences, the more your brand can grow.
Ready for IP— and Beyond
Take your productions to unprecedented levels with the optional TriCaster Advanced Edition software upgrade, adding more than 100 production-enabling features without spending a penny on more hardware. You’ll unleash an exponential workflow that knows no bounds with NDI®, our own IP video protocol—access any source, anywhere on your LAN over a standard ethernet connection.
Flexible I/O for production versatility.
- Mix-and-match SDI and analog I/O
- Analog and digital output connections up to 11 max
- Removable drive bay & built-in Genlock
