Facilis Delivers TerraBlock Integration for NewTek Multi-Camera Live Video Production Tools

Facilis Technology announced that it will support NewTek’s TriCaster multi-camera live video production systems, as well as its 3Play integrated sports solutions with TerraBlock shared storage. As a result of the collaboration, Facilis is now part of the expanding NewTek Developer Network, affording NewTek customers the flexibility to record and play out multiple live-streams simultaneously, using an industry-leading multi-platform, high-capacity shared storage server that supports both 8/16Gbps Fibre Channel and 1/10Gbps Ethernet.

TerraBlock 6.0 has been tested on the TriCaster 860 model, and the full complement of eight capture streams of HD 4:2:2 video can be accommodated on a TerraBlock 24EX/16 or 24D system over the standard 1Gb connection. When using a 24D system, a total of 32 streams of 4:2:2 capture can be achieved with concurrent playout streams.

“TerraBlock is an affordable, complementary shared storage solution for TriCaster and 3Play, delivering tremendous performance, and ease of use,” said Michael Kornet, executive vice president of Business Development for NewTek. “Together our products offer a well-rounded solution for managing the most complex live production and post-workflows.”
