New technologies have emerged that have pushed live production in a next generation. Viewers' demands and expectations have evolved. Content distribution is being widened to a large selection of second screens. Multiplying broadcasting destinations has become a fact and a necessity for video producers.

The new line of TriCasters gives professionals the tools to create more content, with more creative possibilities, to publish to more destinations and therefore to reach more viewers.

The new line of TriCasters includes a large range of standard features, such as Apple® AirPlay® support and NewTek’s IsoCorder™ multi-track recording technology. It includes support for virtually every non-linear editing application for both the Mac® and PC, without the need for transcoding. The effects implemented in the new TriCaster series offer real-time warping that makes it possible to fly video away on a cloth-like surface, or integrate warping video into transitions in limitless ways, with sound. TriCaster effects are further enhanced with the innovative TransWarp engine, which provides the ability to build warping transitions for every visual source, including overlays.
