NewTek began shipping NewTek TalkShow VS 4000, the professional, multi-channel video calling production system for both SDI and IP workflows, on 22nd August.
NewTek VS 4000 is designed exclusively for conducting multiple live, production-ready Skype video calls simultaneously. It integrates multi-channel video calling to enable instant connection and live interaction online via Skype between multiple remote guests in real time regardless of location.
Skype TX 4
TalkShow VS 4000 takes advantage of Skype TX 4 from Microsoft, making it more flexible and scalable than its predecessor. Skype TX 4 offers broadcasters and media partners the ability to integrate multiple studio-grade Skype video calls into a broadcast workflow.
“NewTek TalkShow VS 4000 can handle up to four remote video guests simultaneously or in sequence using SDI or IP workflows,” said Dr. Andrew Cross, president and CTO for NewTek. “This allows broadcasters and media organisations to integrate Skype video calls with any combination of contacts they can reach online, for live conversation, expert analysis, and real time commentary in distraction-free, broadcast-quality HD.”
TalkShow VS 4000 is a facility-class, 1RU rack mountable hardware unit with four-in, four-out industry-standard I/O for integration into SDI workflows and IP video workflows via NDITM, NewTek’s groundbreaking Network Device Interface technology. It features standalone call control and production control interfaces for independent call management and technical configuration. Comprehensive, behind-the-scenes video, audio, communication and monitoring capabilities are included.
Skype TX 4 is optimised to minimise distractions so producers can focus on great interviews with clean, full-resolution HD video and TalkShow VS 4000 adds functionality comparable to what professional broadcasters are familiar and comfortable with. This includes cool additions like proc amp, white balance, advanced colour configuration, automatic colour correction, gain, graphic equaliser, compressor/limiter and noise gate controls.
