SAN ANTONIO, September 2, 2015––NewTek™ today launched TriCaster™ Mini HD-4 sdi––the world’s most complete and compact multimedia studio, now featuring HD-SDI hardware. The new model provides customers a choice between professional SDI I/O and the highly popular, ultra-portable HDMI version of TriCaster Mini allowing even more users to transform their ordinary presentations into engaging multimedia content that looks like network-style TV.  

The Mini’s unmatched size, simplicity and feature set make it easy to carry in one hand, set up, create and share a complete program in a matter of minutes. Now broadcasters and video professionals adding the TriCaster Mini to their toolboxes can produce uncompromising multi-camera content from anywhere using SDI cameras, and take advantage of its portability and ease of use without adding adapters to convert to HDMI. They can create video coverage in more locations, with longer cable runs than possible with HDMI, and with the security of professional-standard BNC connections that lock in place.

“The SDI version of TriCaster Mini is a direct response to feedback we’ve received from SDI camera owners who like the form factor and small size coupled with its comprehensive capabilities,” said Dr. Andrew Cross, president and CTO of NewTek. “We’re pleased to offer customers a choice of models to support either their SDI or HDMI equipment depending on preference. Not only professionals, people in every industry are seeking to deliver their messages like seasoned television professionals in order to engage their audiences. No other system in the world makes it as easy for them to create sophisticated broadcast content, webcasts, and presentations and stream them live, publish to social media or upload to a website from the office, an event, or any location with an Internet connection.”

The TriCaster Mini HD-4 sdi will be on display at the NewTek IBC Stand 7.K11 in Amsterdam, September 11-15, 2015.

TriCaster Mini: Small, Sleek and Simple

Dispelling the myth that it’s too complicated or expensive to produce engaging video content, TriCaster Mini integrates a studio full of production capabilities into one compact device, giving anyone the ability to mix live cameras with video, graphics, titles, and other sources, and create content that looks like professionally made television in minutes where traditionally it took hours or days. An integrated and configurable video screen on the side of the system also serves as a monitor for displaying a range of content selected by the user.

Newcomers and professionals alike can further explore a wide range of creative tools that come standard with TriCaster Mini, including:

  • Mix different visual sources
  • Overlay logos, presentations, charts, titles, media files, animations
  • Import your own branding elements and have them appear in transitions and animations
  • Incorporate a slideshow, web-pages from another computer
  • Replace solid backgrounds with a simulated environment
  • Webcast programs on a live video stream
  • Post clips to YouTube, Facebook and Twitter, your web site
  • Have guest speakers call in from their webcams
  • Record the program so people can watch it on-demand
  • Record all camera footage simultaneously so you can edit the program
  • Make keyboard shortcuts for sophisticated sequences with one touch

TriCaster Mini HD-4 sdi is available immediately for $9,995 USMSRP. It includes an integrated display screen and system storage capable of recording approximately 30 hours of 1080i footage. An optional control surface is available for $2,495 USMSRP.
