If you’re a broadcaster or live producer who wants to include more expert analysis and perspective in your show, you no longer have to spend big budgets on live shots, truck uplinks and heavily equipped newsgathering crews, or waste valuable time coordinating remote live shots and low-quality phone recordings.   

NewTek TalkShow™ (VS-100) is the easiest, highest-quality production solution for delivering live Skype video calls in broadcast-ready, full-frame HD. It’s a compact, 1RU
system that easily integrates Skype TX software from Microsoft with professional production workflows using SDI I/O directly into any switcher. TalkShow brings the control of higher-quality Skype calls into the control room—and leaves nothing to chance out in the field.   

Operators can enhance picture and sound quality of calls with broadcast-standard video and audio control tools and manage them just like any other in-studio source, immediately connecting you with anyone you can reach online, anytime—in distraction-free, broadcast-ready HD.   

Monitor shown in images above is sold separately. For more information on this and other products, please contact your Sales Pro.

NewTek TalkShow VS-100 Features:


  • Access to 300 million monthly connected Skype users – and to anyone else who downloads and signs up for the standard desktop client on any supported device.   
  • Broadcast-style video from regular Skype calls – with automatic aspect ratio conversions and balanced audio, and without requiring a scan converter.   
  • Eliminate on-screen disruption – unlike consumer calling software, technical management is handled separately from face-to-face conversation, eradicating pop-ups, advertisements, and notifications.   
  • 1RU rackmount device – studio-grade production source sends HD-SDI call video to and from any production switcher.   
  • Video production tools – proc-amp controls and automatic color correction adjust image attributes for any lighting environment and enable in-studio operator to enhance imperfect video calls with far higher quality.   
  • Audio quality enhancement – with SDI-embedded audio, compressor/limiter, and onboard graphic equalizer that keep call volumes at consistent levels and prevent audio clipping.   
  • Built-in video quality checks – fail over to custom, still image when unforeseen bandwidth constraints occur below operator-defined preset value.   
  • Tally notification of video calls – allows operators to see when TalkShow Skype feeds are currently live in a program.
