The NewTek Live Sports 410 Solution combines the TriCaster 410 Production Switcher and 3Play 425 Instant Replay System into a complete video switching and instant replay solution for broadcast and sports venue productions. It also includes the TriCaster 460 Control Surface for use with the 410 Switcher.

In a typical scenario, you’ll have the 3Play out in the field and the TriCaster back in the studio, with the two systems integrated over a local network. The TriCaster can send cross-platform macro commands to the 3Play for remote operation of 3Play cueing and playback, and it gets access to 3Play’s internal and external storage drives. Both systems support up to 1080p30/p24/i60.

TriCaster 410 is a 2RU switcher supporting 4 live camera inputs and allowing you to simultaneously broadcast, project, stream, and record. It has 4 standard M/E buses, 15 channels in total, and is configurable for up to 5 outputs. It features collections of visual effects and transitions, over 30 3D and holographic virtual sets, and more. 3Play 425 is also a 2RU system supporting 4 live cameras and up to 40 hours of recording to internal and removable drives in mixed inputs, formats, and frame rates.

TriCaster 410

The NewTek TriCaster 410 is an all-in-one, 4-camera SDI production solution that allows you to simultaneously broadcast, project, stream, and record. With the TriCaster 410 you get all the gear you need in an all-in-one, 2RU system that’s easy to use and ready to travel.

Built for live event producers and web casters on-the-move, the TriCaster 410 delivers a full live production package. Create high-quality shows with custom visuals like 3D holographic virtual sets, and improve your workflow with a wide variety of productivity enhancing tools. Providing creative flexibility, but staying free of workflow and post-production extras, the TriCaster 410 cuts down equipment expenditure to fit your business needs.

You have many choices for handling live operations with compatible TriCaster and third party control surfaces along with support for breakout control of audio, camera, key commands, and even on-camera sequence triggering. The TriCaster 410 gives you complete control, whether you are producing for broadcast, streaming live to the Web, projecting to a big screen, creating an engaging second-screen experience, or all of the above. Included with the unit is a keyboard, mouse, power cord, four rubber feet for desktop use, two set of keys, and a BNC removal tool.

All-in-One Live Production Switcher
The TriCaster 410’s multiple turnkey functions do the work that usually requires racks of equipment, but integrates it all into a turnkey solution that saves space, setup, cabling, and expense. With just one system you can record, encode, switch, submix, playback, mix audio, create advanced graphics and titling, and more.
Travel Ready
Produce a network-quality show from places you’ve never been able to before. Make the most of just 2RU of rack space in a production vehicle or other space. Expand the horizon of your live production comfort zone with a new freedom of movement that’s just not possible with racks of individual components pieced together.
SDI Input/Output
The TriCaster 410 provides SDI connectivity for integration with professional equipment and workflows. Input up to 4 cameras and color correct, key, crop, scale, and frame sync them with varying SD and HD resolutions and formats. Use SDI output connections to send your program out to multiple destinations and displays, including another TriCaster on the network via a network output.
15-Channel, 4-Camera Production
Control productions in resolutions up to 1080p and connect up to 4 SDI cameras to the TriCaster 410. Add digital media from two built-in graphic and sound slots, and share computer displays from two network sources. Four M/E-style virtual inputs let you stage live virtual sets, create custom picture effects and presets, and submixes that can act as upstream switchers.
Automation functions let you streamline operation sequences that are too complex for live execution. Unlimited external control functions with MIDI sequencing enables show control of nearly any command, or offloading tasks to additional crew. Using hotspots, talent can trigger automated sequences with on-camera gestures, effectively controlling a segment without an operator. You can add remotely controlled robotic cameras as input sources, without the need to add camera operators.
External and Third-Party Applications
Through Newtek’s third-party developer network, the TriCaster 410 supports an extended set of products that work directly with the system to provide innovative solutions and workflows in several different areas of your live production, including streaming, graphics, content, and controllers. Newtek’s SDK enables developers and customers to tap into the power of TriCaster functionality, add applications that enhance the production workflow, and further extend integration with standard and custom installations. The suite of peripheral applications and hardware control surfaces rounds out the total solution.
User Interface
Provides complete control over live production, streaming, recording, and media publishing operations.
Recordable Macros
Make your favorite series of commands automatic. Record any sequence of operations as a macro event, make adjustments as needed with the built-in Macro editor, then trigger with a single click, keystroke, or button press. Talent can also trigger macros by making contact with configurable on-screen hotspots.
