Communication is key during any live production. metaSETZ Tally Products will keep you on your game. Whatever the level of your production and whatever TriCaster you use we have a tally system for you.
A complete tally system for a Livestream Studio or vMix system consists of a tally controller and individual tally lights for each camera along with interconnect cables.
TLC-4LS & TLC8LS Tally Controller Compatibility:
Two Controller Models
Three tally controller models are available. The TLC-8LS with eight tally outputs and the TLC-4LS with six tally outputs. These models have software assignable outputs and are connected via USB. See the individual descriptions (from the links list below) for details. TLC controller include the USB cables and software to connect to your machine.
The TL-2 tally light mounts on any camera using a standard shoe mount. The end with ultra bright red LED faces the front towards the on camera talent and the indicator lights face the camera operator. The shoe mount can be reversed for easier mounting on some cameras.
The tally light connects to one of our controllers via Ethernet style cable that carries both power and control signals and optionally intercom signals. Choose the correct tally controller for your switcher. The controller connects to the switcher via either USB (or a dedicated control cable in the case of the TLC-8D). The TL-2 includes a short Ethernet cable and an RJ-45 coupler to make it easy to rig a strain relief for the light.
If you have cameras with built-in tally lights and remote camera control units (CCUs) you can use our RU-2 relay units to control them. These connect in place of the TL-2 lights and provide relay outputs that can be connected to your CCUs tally inputs. The RU-2 includes a short cable to connect to the controller and a pigtail to connect to you CCU’s tally port. You may need to add the appropriate connector if your CCU doesn’t have screw terminals.
Intercom Pass Through
You can use the intercom pass through to route your analog intercom signals over the tally cables. You simply connect your intercom master station to the XLR port on the tally controller. This routes the intercom signal and power out to the TL-2 tally lights. There you connect your intercom belt pack to the 1/8″ port with a 1/8″ to XLR adapter cable (TL-IC).
