TalkShow from Newtek is designed for broadcaster or live producer who wants to include more expert analysis and perspective in your show, you no longer have to spend big budgets on live shots, truck uplinks and heavily equipped newsgathering crews, or waste valuable time coordinating remote live shots and low-quality phone recordings.

NewTek TalkShow is the easiest, highest-quality production solution for delivering live Skype video calls in broadcast-ready, full-frame HD. It’s a compact, 1RU system that easily integrates Skype TX software from Microsoft with professional production workflows using SDI I/O directly into any switcher. TalkShow brings the control of higher-quality Skype calls into the control room—and leaves nothing to chance out in the field.

Operators can enhance picture and sound quality of calls with broadcast-standard video and audio control tools and manage them just like any other in-studio source, immediately connecting you with anyone you can reach online, anytime—in distraction-free, broadcast-ready HD.

The turnkey TalkShow system builds upon Skype TX software from Microsoft for initiating, receiving, monitoring and managing video calls, with a unique set of live production tools not found in other video calling systems. With TalkShow, users have access to customizable settings for fully color correcting live video calls (including features for automatic color balancing) as well as SDI-embedded audio, and compressor/limiter, equalization, and adjustable head-room controls for further improving audio quality. These tools allow producers to deliver enhanced video/audio experiences that are critical when producing credible, high-quality broadcast programming and are simply not possible with standard desktop video messaging products. Additionally, producers using TalkShow with TriCaster multi-camera video production systems will be able to route Skype video calls directly to and from a TriCaster over a network connection without tying up an additional HD-SDI input.

It used to take a lot of coordination, expense, and equipment to capture these conversations live with satellite feeds or microwave relays-or else it took piecing together a homegrown, desktop chat solution that left everyone wondering whether the call would hold up.

Now you can leave the satellite trucks, big budgets and duct tape behind, and be ready for a live shot with anyone-around the world, anytime-directly from your studio or live production.

NewTek TalkShow VS-100 is the studio-grade solution to immediately add live interviews, perspective, credibility, and distinct competitive advantage to your program by easily incorporating 300 million monthly connected Skype users as guest speakers without the expense and effort of a live shot. Any video-enabled Skype user is just a call away.
