Manage buffer configuration quickly and easily with an icon-based control scheme comprised of individual, interactive buttons for configuration, asset management, title editing, and unloading.
Configuration Menu Grouping and Nesting
Access and manage the configurable elements of any input source more efficiently, with tab-based grouping of related functions and the ability to expand or collapse menus as needed.
Intelligent Configuration Panels
Save time during setup with context-sensitive configuration panels that include all applicable controls, automatically store designated settings, and dynamically update as you cycle through different input and source types.
COMP Panel Control
Access, assign, and apply COMP presets directly from the configuration panel of any M/E bus.
Playlist Panel Control
Access the active playlist and control panel for any media player directly from the configuration panel.
Optionally connect a compatible touchscreen display to interact with the user interface and perform live production functions using simple, familiar touch gestures.
Store frequently used text and images as easily accessible presets to accelerate graphics production and live titling workflows.
Camera Settings and Control
Manage settings for connected cameras as supported, to include focus, iris, and white balance, plus access and operate PTZ controls for applicable sources, directly from the configuration panel.
Access the discrete device webpage served by any applicable input source (such as the NewTek NDI® PTZ Camera) directly from its input configuration panel.
Enjoy the capacity and flexibility to assign a different PTZ camera to any and every external source available on your system, including up to 16 simultaneous on TriCaster TC1 and 44 simultaneous on the NewTek IP Series Video Mix Engine.
Quickly and seamlessly switch over the NewTek IP Series 4-Stripe Control Panel or 2-Stripe Control to operate another Video Mix Engine on the network as part of a multi-engine workflow.
* Exclusive to NewTek IP Series
Maximize your screen usage with smart workspaces that automatically adjust the size and layout of multiviewer windows according to your user interface configuration and the available space on your display.
Customize titles and graphics within the primary configuration panel, or optionally open a larger dedicated canvas to review and edit templates.
Sports Title Templates
Choose from a variety of live title templates designed to enhance sports productions, including scoreboard graphics with integrated DataLink™ fields for input of real-time scoring and game clock data.
Open any title template, edit to preference, then export the completed asset as a new file available for immediate production use, sharing, or adding to your content library.
Notifications Activity Center
Keep close tabs on system activity, including file imports, routine notifications, and error messages, and perform select related functions with a convenient in-session panel.
Easily determine the presence and number of new system notifications with a convenient counter badge for the dashboard icon.
Readily identify the urgency of system notifications and level of action required with a color-coded priority system for the dashboard icon.
External Recorders (replaces External Recorder Control)
Optionally capture up to 8 external NDI® sources over the network to local storage media as H.264 media files.
External Replay Clips
Optionally add real-time video clips captured from external NDI® sources to DDRs for playback and replay.
Collapse the default panes of the user interface in favor of single-stripe switcher, expanded multiviewer, and streamlined workflow supporting automatic transitions, intuitive DSK delegation and application, and enhanced touchscreen operation.
Optionally select and switch between live sources by clicking or tapping on the viewport of the desired source in the multiviewer, rather than pressing switcher buttons.
LiveMatte™ Pro (updates LiveMatte)
Composite multiple video signals, enable green-screen and matte effects, or configure live virtual sets with pristine quality, using the most advanced version of NewTek’s powerful real-time chromakeying technology to date.
