Carve your own path of creativity across 8 mix effects buses, each intuitively supporting sub-mixing, layering, compositing, and live virtual set configuration. Between source rows and key layers, each M/E bus enables layering of up to 8 video elements, all with independent DVE controls. All M/E buses include separate processing which delivers colour correction, chroma and luma keying. Combined with video re-entry of each M/E on every M/E, and the ability to store and recall 9 variations of each bus configuration, you have unlimited creative potential for visual storytelling.
Produce incredibly sophisticated compositions, DVE motion sequences, squeezebacks, and animated effects with a powerful full-motion composition engine integrated into every production bus. Supporting advanced configuration, positioning, keyframing, and transitions, the ‘COMP' engine captures and stores any and every operation and action you perform into a versatile snapshot preset system, enabling you to size, move, and manipulate video with ease—and at will.
Present your content in almost infinite ways and capitalise on branding and sponsorship opportunities, stacking layer after layer after layer of video and graphic elements to arrange your primary mix, sub-mixes, and other mix effects. And with full-time, full-motion confidence monitors for each background and overlay element integrated into the user interface, directors and operators are assured that the right visuals are displayed at the right time—every time.
Act on ideas that span the entire spectrum of creative expression, pouring your imagination into sophisticated compositions and effects, or making subtle adjustments that have substantial impact. Customise even the most fundamental elements of your production with fully configurable colour correction tools, 3D object positioning, smooth-edge cropping, and optional borders. Combine your choice of foreground and background elements together with extensive key and fill support. And introduce countless creative possibilities to your toolbox with real-time motion tracking.
Generate crisp, clean, layered effects with powerful LiveMatte™ real-time chromakeying technology built into every source channel and M/E bus. With independent key configuration, advanced settings, including luma key, and integrated waveform and vectorscope monitors, getting an exceptionally spectacular key for countless composite scenes and live virtual set applications takes nothing more than a green screen and standard lighting.
Set the stage for your production, transforming any location into an elaborate virtual environment. With integrated LiveSet technology, you can composite live video sources into beautifully rendered scenes that can include multiple angles, virtual camera movements, real-time reflections, specular highlights, and animated lens flares. And by applying augmented reality effects, you can introduce even more stunning depth and dimensionality, embedding video overlays into the 3D virtual space, producing striking real-time visuals that blur the line between virtual and reality.
Present your audience with an immersive viewing experience defined by amazing clarity and incredible detail, producing programs, performances, events, and live sports in true UHD (Ultra High Definition) resolution. Supporting direct input and output of native 2160p video at up to 60 frames per second, as well as scalable production workflows via network integration with NewTek NC1 conversion modules, TriCaster 2 Elite offers incredible flexibility for UHD implementation. And unlike other products that promise UHD, you can switch, stream, and record UHD video without compromising the frame rate or the number of available inputs—meaning you have the capacity for 32 simultaneous, full-resolution UHD external video inputs to produce your program.

Maintain a constant watch over the array of inputs, outputs, and assets that comprise your production with scalable multi-source monitoring. TriCaster 2 Elite provides multiviewer outputs to drive local displays, with configurable workspace layouts and viewports that permit directors and operators to customise the control environment to their preferences. Beyond centralising, organising, and observing your choice of video signals with tally, you can calibrate monitor colour characteristics and optionally display visuals such as audio VU meters, production clocks, and waveform and vectorscope for comprehensive management of your live operations.
Standardise to a preferred signal workflow or adapt effortlessly to your particular infrastructure and available equipment inventory, freely intermixing formats, resolutions, and frame rates with robust multi-format video processing. With optional external modules for SDI I/O supporting resolutions up to 3G 1080p and an IP-based NDI® workflow independent of specific technical criteria, you can work with established formats and emerging standards interchangeably.
Load, cue, and roll file after file of multimedia to complement live action with multiple channels of integrated media playback. Supporting short-form and long-form video clips, images, graphics, animations, and audio tracks, the sheer number of media players at your fingertips provides endless creative opportunities from start to finish, including the ability to live edit compelling video sequences, dynamic image slideshows, and spectacular highlight sequences, complete with transitions and custom animated effects between assets.
Configure and capture multiple channels of video and audio from your program to fuel post-production workflows, facilitate collaborative creative projects, and archive produced content and ISO camera feeds for future use. With support for 8x configurable M/E channels, 8x physical SDI inputs, and 32x total configurable inputs recording for distribution, plus flexible storage options, you can continue to get value from your content long after your live productions fade to black. Insert instant replays from multiple NDI or SDI input recordings with a single click instantly; or cue to play on demand instead. Replays include custom in/out transitions and speed control. Create basic highlight clips for instant playback and publishing with shortcut commands. (Some workflows may require addition of NewTek Remote Storage)
Stream live to your choice of new media platforms, including convenient presets for Facebook Live, Microsoft® Azure®, Twitch, YouTube™ Live, and more. With two independently configurable H.264 streaming encoders built into TriCaster 2 Elite, you can easily deliver platform-specific content to target audiences in resolutions up to UHD, while opening up new sponsorship and revenue opportunities. Support for SRT streaming has been enabled.
Conduct live video calls with Live Call Connect functionality from anywhere in the world, with the only large-scale production system to integrate a range of the most popular video conferencing software applications including Microsoft Skype™, Microsoft Teams™, Zoom Meetings™, GoToMeeting™, Discord™, and Tencent™. This capability enhances productions with high-quality video and audio, providing choices for you to present conversations, interviews, reports, and more—regardless of the caller’s device.
A masterfully produced video program is incomplete without a rich, layered audio experience. Drive your production sound with analog, digital, and network audio connectivity and a robust, multi-source audio mixer supporting 8 channels of audio for each input and output. With a full array of audio DSPs available to configure sound with impeccable precision, every mix will strike a pitch-perfect chord with your audience. For interfacing with external audio devices over IP, there is integrated support for Dante networking protocol from Audinate®, and AES67 networking protocol via compatible WDM audio drivers.
