NewTek has announced the next iteration of the TriCaster Mini. It should now allow for new video producers to jump right in and start working their way toward more difficult programs.
According to the press release, the TriCaster Mini is supposed to be easy to set up —it’s described as “plug-and-play.”
“TriCaster Mini allows new video producers to get started quickly, and easily work their way up to creating more sophisticated programs,” says NewTek. Users can work in resolutions up to 4K and can deliver on all screens on the market today.
“Everyone has amazing stories to tell, and video is the most powerful way to deliver your message. That’s why we strive to make it fun and exciting to create,” said Dr. Andrew Cross, president of R&D for Vizrt Group, “Whether you’re a student, a corporate communications manager, or a seasoned video professional, TriCaster Mini has everything to get you going and make broadcast quality shows you can stream to all your favorite social media outlets.”
The TriCaster Mini’s eight external video inputs will support any combination of compatible sources in resolutions up to 4K UHD. That should give you more flexibility and more points of views than other options. Additionally, the Mini’s four plug-and-play NDI connections with power-over-Ethernet (PoE) should make video, audio, tally, power and control easier.
There are also two input modules with PoE to directly connect existing HDMI devices. Additionally, it’s said to be very portable. “Its small size and light weight allows storytellers to take it anywhere, set up and get started in minutes,” says NewTek.
The TriCaster Mini works for both entry-level users and pros
The unit offers hundreds of entry-level and advanced projection tools. That includes tools like built-in virtual sets, animated transition effect, replay for sporting events, streaming, recording, projecting and one-touch social media publishing.
