NewTek Ships TalkShow VS 4000 Multi-Channel Video Calling System
NewTek TalkShow VS 4000 integrates multi-channel video calling to enable instant connection and live interaction online via Skype to facilitate compelling conversation and in-depth discussion between multiple remote guests in real time regardless of location. TalkShow VS 4000 takes advantage of Skype TX 4 from Microsoft. More flexible and scalable than its predecessor, Skype TX 4 offers broadcasters and media partners the ability to integrate multiple studio-grade Skype video calls into a broadcast workflow.
“NewTek TalkShow VS 4000 can handle up to four remote video guests simultaneously or in sequence using SDI or IP workflows,” said Dr. Andrew Cross, president and CTO for NewTek. “This allows broadcasters and media organizations to integrate Skype video calls with any combination of contacts they can reach online, for live conversation, expert analysis, and real-time commentary—in distraction-free, broadcast-quality HD.”
TalkShow VS 4000 is a facility-class, 1RU rack mountable hardware unit with 4-in, 4-out industry-standard I/O for integration into SDI workflows and IP video workflows via NDI™, NewTek’s groundbreaking Network Device Interface technology. It features standalone call control and production control interfaces for independent call management and technical configuration. Comprehensive, behind-the-scenes video, audio, communication and monitoring capabilities are included.
Skype TX 4 is optimized to minimize distractions so producers can focus on great interviews with clean, full-resolution HD video. TalkShow VS 4000 adds functionality comparable to what professional broadcasters are familiar and comfortable with like proc amp, white balance, advanced color configuration and automatic colour correction, gain, graphic equalizer, compressor/limiter and noise gate controls.
