The TriCaster TC1 is the newest addition to NewTek’s TriCaster line up and represents the next generation in integrated production hardware.

The TC1 is the most complete production system on the planet. The unprecedented power and capability let’s you take both established and emerging technologies to produce world class content and reach new audiences wherever they watch.

Since the TC1 supports both established workflows using SDI, Ethernet, and analog audio and new technologies like IP audio and video and 4K video you don’t have to spend a fortune on new equipment and infrastructure but can still push the boundaries with these new workflows.
