TriCaster 460 Information Below

The NewTek TriCaster 460 gives you professional-grade gear in a compact, easy to use system so you can quickly reach your audience from anywhere—booth, studio, van or small control room. TriCaster 460 provides incredible flexibility to producers on the road and in small spaces for everything from connectivity and program output, to source footage access after the fact, and available media sources. Elevate everyday productions to network-style compositions with real-time, 4 M/E compositing, virtual sets, transitions, brand elements, and more—all integrated within a compact 2U frame.

Quickly capture and create compelling live and post-produced content with on-board tools that save space and costs. Go live. Go big. On the road, or onsite. With an optional hardware control surface and support for a range of external control devices for audio mixing, robotic camera operation, sequence commands, and even gesture-based talent triggers, TriCaster 460 gives you complete control of your content, whether you’re producing for broadcast, streaming live to the Web, projecting to a big screen, creating an engaging second-screen experience—or all of the above. This model includes the Tricaster 460CS control surface.
