Lesson Two, “Crew Assignments and Operation,” reinforces the importance of teamwork in producing a live broadcast. Students gain an understanding of a production crew and the responsibilities of each crew member.

For the kick-off of their 12-city, 5,500 mile TriCasts America: Varsity Tour, NewTek, a worldwide leader in video and 3D animation products, today announced the availability of its TriCaster Curriculum. Designed to introduce the basic concepts of creating a live production, the Curriculum divides the learning process into two parts: Journalism Basics and Production Basics. Each section contains in-depth lesson plans that enable the students to achieve network-style results, while working with TriCaster.

NewTek took a well-rounded, methodical and creative approach in laying out the lesson plans – including ethical considerations in broadcasting, types of news stories and how to cover them; production basics; working with talent; effective audio; and components of a typical news cast; among others.

“The goal of the NewTek TriCasts America: Varsity Tour is to showcase how easy it is to produce live events through TriCaster,” said Michael Kornet, chief marketing officer, NewTek. “With the aid of our Curriculum in a TriCaster-powered, hands-on, learning environment, students receive the skill sets required to create network-quality, live productions.”

With TriCaster, anyone can simultaneously produce, live stream, broadcast, project and record HD and 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. TriCaster is used by schools, broadcasters, sports organizations, houses of worship, government agencies and others to provide a new level of extended programming and content to their audiences.
