The NewTek TriCaster 8000 without Control Surface is a complete live production and media publishing solution with everything that happens on-screen, under your control. With both a keyboard-mouse combo to manage every system function, and the definitive hardware console at your fingertips, you have two choices for fully managing your sessions, plus the flexibility to add independent operators to handle various tasks. The total TriCaster 8000 solution is built to keep pace with the rapidly changing landscape of video production, so you can unleash the potential of your media strategy with versatility.

It starts with a 24-channel switcher, amplified by 8 fully re-entrant M/E rows. It extends to external router support for large-scale, multi-camera production in native full-resolution HD, 8 channels of ISO recording in up to 1080p, and live output to up to 14 different display destinations. It boosts your content strategy with integrated social media sharing to publish to your host of social networks—live—keeping your brand consistent, and your audience engaged. And, with a powerful integrated effects system, it creates an efficient, custom-branded visual masterpiece.

Note: This production system does not come with a NewTek TriCaster 8000 control surface.
