Free webinar: Meet the man behind NewTek TriCaster

Free webinar: Meet the man behind NewTek TriCaster

Traditional switchers have been doing their thing for live production for about as long as colour TV has been around, but in the past few years NewTek’s TriCaster series have made them about as obsolete as test cricket on terrestrial. Now, to explain why they’re the future, NewTek CTO and real-life doctor Andrew Cross is presenting a free webinar.

What’s it about? A live discussion/product demo to learn how TriCaster is changing traditional production, cutting costs, reducing production time and delivering more content to more viewing platforms.

When is it and how do I sign up? Wednesday 12th December, 8.00pm GMT. Fill in your details to register for the free webinar here.

What’s a TriCaster? NewTek TriCaster live production system allows you to take inputs from cameras and screens, mix them in realtime, add graphics, titles and even realtime chromakeyed backdrops, then stream the results online, to an AV display at a live event or just save it to internal memory.
