No matter what your live broadcast ambitions are, TriCaster Mini stands ready to help you fulfill them. With TriCaster Mini you can produce and distribute live video programs from diverse sources and digital media in both standard and high definition. Use multiple cameras, network video sources, recorded digital video, multimedia presentations from networked laptops, live web pages, digital photos and graphics, control robotic cameras, and much more.

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.
