NewTek Shows Live Streaming, Multi-Camera Production and Replay/SloMo at BVE 2014

TriCaster and 3Play bring professional broadcasting and sports production within reach of all

At BVE 2014 NewTekTM will present its family of professional TriCaster multi-camera production systems that were unveiled at IBC 2013. These systems offer innovations including mix/effects (M/E) channels, ‘holographic’ live virtual sets and extended graphics capabilities that enable video producers to create broadcast quality, cost-effective content with a single system. Visitors to Stand F20 will also see 3Play 4800, NewTek’s flagship multi-camera replay server that redefines price/performance standards in live sports production.

“NewTek’s range of live multi-camera production systems provide a level of professional functionality and visual impact previously out of reach of most video producers,” said Carter Holland, chief marketing officer, NewTek, Inc. “From broadcasters on limited budgets, to events companies seeing an increase in demand for live streaming, to sports organizations that want to improve the fan experience, the phrase we hear most from our customers is: “We couldn’t do this before”. We are proud that our systems offer them new, cost-effective ways to enhance and increase their output and create new business opportunities.”
