NewTek TriCaster Mini Advanced HD-4 SDI

The NewTek TriCaster Mini Advanced HD-4 SDI is a compact, all-in-one multimedia solution that allows you to simultaneously broadcast, stream, and record live productions from virtually anywhere. The eight-input switcher lets you easily switch between four SDI or eight NDI video sources, mix audio, add graphics and titles, and add advanced effects such as virtual sets and animated transitions. Featuring an intuitive and full-featured control software, the TriCaster Mini Advanced HD-4 SDI is suited for both new users and seasoned professionals. In addition to the four SDI inputs, you can choose from four NDI devices on the network, including computers, PTZ cameras, or even wireless capture devices. Two SDI outputs are provided for sending the Program output with audio to external devices. The TriCaster Mini Advanced HD-4 SDI features an internal 1TB SSD drive and also supports recording to external storage via USB 3.0. The comprehensive switcher also supports live streaming to multiple platforms and services simultaneously. A keyboard and mouse are included, and the optional TriCaster Mini Control Panel can also be incorporated for traditional tactile control with a T-bar and illuminated buttons.
