In the past video playback came from a video server, on screen text came from a character generator, graphics came from a graphics server and audio came from an audio server. The output of these stand alone boxes was then mixed together by the video switcher.
Now all of these sources can come from one box, the switcher itself.
With the introduction of the NewTek TriCaster, broadcasters were given a single box solution for show production. The TriCaster can be your video switcher, video playback, graphics store, Character Generator and audio playback device. What was missing, until now, was the connection to Broadcast Newsroom Computer Systems.
The solution for using TriCaster in small, medium and large market Broadcast News operations. NewsCaster by NewsMaker will streamline your news production operation into one box by linking the capabilities of a NewTek TriCaster with standard Broadcast Newsroom Computer Systems.
NewsCaster is a Newsroom Automation product that Integrates Broadcast Newsroom Computer Systems with the TriCaster product line. The TriCaster operator no longer needs to manually set up the show and drop what they are doing to make adjustments while on-air. Playout sequencing will all be done under the control of the Newsroom Computer System. Whole shows are uploaded and then updates automatically applied, without the assistance of the TriCaster operator.
Initial delivery will support the MOS implementations of the ANNova OpenMedia, AP ENPS, Avid® iNEWS®, NorCom NCPower, and Octopus Broadcast Newsroom Computer Systems.
