Your presentations can simultaneously be displayed by video projectors, television monitors, broadcast by traditional means, and streamed in high quality on the Internet. TriCaster Mini even includes NewTek’s latest edition of the famous LiveSet™ virtual set system to provide you with network quality ‘bigger than life’ production capabilities.

TriCaster Mini Advanced now ships with TriCaster Advanced Edition software included and installed, improving upon the feature set of the original TriCaster Mini system platform and increasing the value by integrating more than 100 additional video capabilities at no additional cost, while eliminating the need to purchase and install the TriCaster Advanced Edition software add-on separately. TriCaster Mini Advanced line is now fully capable of an end-to-end advanced IP workflow, via native integration of NDI®, NewTek’s innovative Network Device Interface technology, along with increasing the I/O capacity to a total of 8 external inputs and 4 video mix outputs – all of which support NDI®.

TriCaster Mini Advanced HD-4 HDMI includes one 750GB internal hard disk drives (HDD) for accommodating approximately 15 hours of HD video (varies depending on format and resolution) and allowing for ISO recording (4 channels) with an external USB 3.0 storage. The TriCaster Mini supports HD live streaming with presets up to 720p available for RTMP and browser-based streaming applications. Additionally, you can save a web-ready streaming file for later upload to popular social media or video-on-demand sites.
