NewTek News

Vizrt’s ownership sharpens NewTek’s focus.

At recent shows, IBC Amsterdam and NAB New York, NewTek expanded on its leadership position in software defined storytelling and IP video production. At the same time, NewTek celebrated the latest version of NDI IP video, known also as NDI 4.

Merging the fields of live video and post-production, NDI 4 can record unlimited NDI video channels for true multi-camera production with full synchronization in any video or audio format, including 4K and above. Time-stamped recordings and a NDI tool to import files into Adobe Creative Cloud applications makes multi-camera editing truly accessible for the first time.

NewTek also featured Premium Access for TriCaster, with Live Story Creator as well as TriCaster 410 Plus, and the newest Spark Plus 4K converter product, that offers users unprecedented power and ease of use.

Premium Access With Live Story Creator

Premium Access delivers incredible power and new tools for TriCaster TC1, the new TriCaster 410 Plus, and VMC1, as well as previous models in the TriCaster line. Leading the pack of new capabilities is Live Story Creator, a groundbreaking approach to program automation using Microsoft Word.

As simple as building a script in Microsoft Word with triggers for actions, a show is easily executed once loaded into TriCaster or VMC1. The latest version of Premium Access also includes scalable NDI recording and replay with full synchronization for easy multi-camera production, digital media aspect ratios and frame rates for delivery to digital screens, and much more.

TriCaster 410 Plus

The latest in the line-up of TriCaster integrated production systems, TriCaster 410 Plus provides 8 external inputs, 4 M/Es, 4 mix outputs, along with NDI integration for video, audio and data transmission over IP. The rack mountable system also includes real-time social media publishing, live streaming, multi-channel recording, video playback, integrated multiviewers, graphics, compositing, virtual sets, audio mixing and much more.

Spark Plus 4K

Adding to the popular line of NewTek Spark converter products is a Spark Plus model with support of resolutions up to 4K UHD, from HDMI-to-NDI. Spark Plus captures video directly from connected cameras or devices and allows it to be transported over the network as visually lossless, full bandwidth NDI with virtually no latency.

Spark Plus devices are the smallest, fastest and easiest way to acquire a 4K video source from anywhere on the network and integrate it into your IP-based video production. After combining these products with NDI recording capabilities, they became the world’s easiest multi-camera capture devices.
