NewTek TriCaster is the world’s best-selling line of production switchers. We should know – we’ve installed over 550 of them!  The new range of TC1 models, launched in April, boast a brand new 2RU or 3RU hardware platform packed with new features. The TC1 also now supports 1080p 60 and 4K UHD video!

Building on the NDI technology and IP workflows, the new TC1 models start with 16 inputs and come in two form factors and two different control surfaces. Capabilities are built in that would previously require separate external systems such as dual Skype TX channels and dual multi-resolution, multi-framerate streaming encoders. Recording has also been beefed up with each model supporting 6 channels. For those in mission-critical environments, the 3RU model includes redundant power supplies.

New 1.5 or 2 stripe control surfaces with 14 or 24 source buttons per row. The larger control surface is suited to the TC1 when paired with the NC1 IO unit that adds another 8x 3G-SDI inputs.

The features of the TC1 main unit are the same except for power. The 3RU version boasts redundant power for those mission critical environments.

The new NC1 IO unit adds 8x 3G-SDI inputs to any TC1 system in a slim 1RU form factor. The 8 inputs are fed in to the TC1 via NDI. The NC1 can also be used as a 2x channel UHD input module via quad-link SDI. An NC1 unit can be added to any TC1 at a later date to expand input count.
