SAN ANTONIO – May 7, 2010 – NewTek, manufacturer of industry-leading video and 3D animation products, today announced that TriCaster model TCXD850, its newly launched multi-channel, high definition/standard definition (HD/SD) portable live production system, was recognized by EventDVLive in its first-ever Winner’s Circle award program. This is the fourth prestigious award NewTek has received for TriCaster TCXD850, which was unveiled at the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) Show 2010.

TriCaster TCXD850 won in the Live Switchers and Production Systems category. According to the EventDVLive awards committee, they chose their winners by focusing on equipment geared toward live event producers, and technology and services that will help their readers expand their capabilities and streamline their workflows most significantly in the near-term.

“NewTek TriCaster is the solution of choice for live event producers, offering many benefits that were previously found only in a large live HD truck,” said Andrew Cross, executive vice president, engineering, NewTek. “TriCaster TCXD850 represents the most advanced technological breakthrough in portable live production that NewTek has ever introduced. Gaining this kind of validation in our industry from EventDVLive, is very significant for us and our customers. We want to thank the editors for recognizing NewTek TriCaster TCXD850 as an NAB top 10 product for live event producers.”

The latest addition to the TriCaster line of portable live production systems, TriCaster TCXD850 is a 22-channel HD/SD live production switcher in a rack mount form factor, with redundant power supply and removable storage; eight external sources, eight virtual/mix channels; live HD virtual sets and advanced matte generation; overlay with rotation, positioning and scaling in 3D plus animated effects; HD live streaming; increased media player capabilities; and multi-view monitoring of all inputs and outputs.

With TriCaster, anyone can simultaneously produce, live stream, broadcast, project and record HD/SD network-style productions. A single operator or small team can switch between multiple cameras, virtual inputs and live virtual sets, while inserting clips, titles and motion graphics with multi-channel effects.
