NewTek Introduces LiveText™ 2

HD titles and graphics to any TriCaster™

NewTek, manufacturer of industry-leading video and 3D animation products, announced LiveText™ 2. This update provides increased workflow support with the ability to send HD titles and graphics to any TriCaster™ portable live production system (including the recently launched TriCaster TCXD850 model, and TriCaster TCXD300). LiveText 2 remote titling software with added DataLink™ allows operators to pre-produce graphics and titles off-site, or on the way to the location, and deliver real-time display of scores, times, prices and other rapidly-changing information, providing instant updates to TriCaster.

“By allowing a dedicated person to control all titling aspects of a production, LiveText 2 lets the director focus on the flow of a live Web or video project," said Andrew Cross, executive vice president, engineering, NewTek. “It also improves the reaction time and accuracy of new titles added during live production."

LiveText 2 also allows for a shared workload, by creating the ability to add a dedicated title station. Communicating directly with TriCaster, LiveText 2 provides scrolls, crawls, title pages and lower thirds, to a live production or live stream. Now, managing lastminute speaker changes is easy, and monitoring real-time data makes updating effortless.
