Independent Control Interfaces
Easily set up a multi-operator production workflow, with separate interfaces for call and production management. Skype TX Control software can be operated from the TalkShow VS 4000 system or installed on another machine as a standalone call control center, allowing the producer to manage calls and talent, while a production operator handles video and audio.

Group or Queue Callers
Connect with any combination of guests from around the world simultaneously or in sequence, for compelling live conversation, expert analysis, real-time commentary, and in-depth discussion.

IP Networking
Receive video calls over IP anywhere on your network. Built-in NewTek NDI technology allows routing of Skype video calls to any compatible NDI receiving device (including TriCaster® and 3Play) while enabling the selection of any NDI video source for return to the caller over the network.

Advanced Audio
Deliver conversations that sound more professional. Independently adjust incoming and outgoing audio signals for the highest-quality sound, with the only video calling system that offers built-in gain control, graphic equalizer, compressor/limiter, and noise gate settings.

Pristine Live Video
Ensure your guests look as good as they sound, with enhanced real-time image processing and fully configurable correction tools, including proc amp controls, auto color setting, and white balance—and clean, deinterlaced return video to the caller.

Real-Time Call Monitoring
Conduct every call with complete confidence, by utilizing high-quality, full-motion video previews, accurate on-screen audio VU metering, and selectable multi-view display layouts with configurable monitor overlays.
