Production of Any Scale.

Say "yes" even before you find out the camera count. With the extraordinary versatility of the 24-channel TriCaster 8000 you can scale up or down for every program imaginable. Expand to unprecedented coverage with massive, multi-camera production through external video routers, accessed and controlled from the user interface. Add a dedicated audio tech, graphics operator, and social media producer. Then send 8 independent output feeds to 14 destinations, for broadcast, stream, display—including transmitting over the network to another TriCaster. Smaller program? Shrink back down to size—and let one operator handle the show.


Mirroring and Redundancy

Double-team your peace of mind and your program with a second TriCaster 8000 that mirrors the commands on the first one, and gain redundant operation, synchronized multi-user workflows, and even separately branded channels for different viewers of the same program.


Social Media Integration.

In the age of second and third screens, your social media image is critical to developing a following – along with sponsors, advertisers and partnership opportunities. The real-time social media publishing panel in TriCaster 8000 instantly links you with all of your social networks – like Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube – so you can share, distribute, and engage instantly. Even while live.


Endless Customization.

TriCaster 8000’s visual capabilities flex from the most subdued productions to the most elaborate, thanks to a configurable architecture that makes every idea possible. Start with the broad, creative canvas of 8 M/E buses – and loop them into each other for real-time layered compositions. Explore sensational new visual sequences, with recordable macros and one-touch automation. Operators can personalize their workflow too, by creating custom workspace and monitoring solutions with up to four displays – and presets for any operator’s preferences.


Multi-Track ISO Recording.

IsoCorder™ multi-track video recording technology captures and stores incoming sources into the system, saving all your live footage and literally racks of video capture equipment. It’s a built-in, real-time ISO recording system of all 8 camera inputs simultaneously, right inside the user interface, for immediate post-production in any NLE. Record your entire show, select camera footage at full resolution, and create an inventory of fresh content to repurpose for future programming.


Electrifying Visual Effects.

TriCaster 8000 hosts the most powerful effects engine in live production. Customize full-color, animated transitions with alpha channel and embedded audio. Enhance with branded elements designed into real-time cloth dynamics, 3D video warping and transformations with TransWarp effects and motion overlays. And create your own custom effects using the included Animation Store Creator application.


Sophisticated Sequences Simplified.

With TriCaster 8000, elaborate live production sequences aren’t risky because you automate them ahead of time. Seamlessly string together complex effects and creative elements with macros, triggered by keyboard shortcuts and control surface actions. Or for a presentation that is even more visually remarkable, configure talent-driven, on-camera hotspots. With the wave of a hand or walk across the stage, the scene switches – and your show takes on a whole new dimension with interactive elements in total sync with your talent’s presentation.


Stunning Studio Sets and Backgrounds.

Even if your “set” is really a multi-purpose room or the corner of a studio, your viewers will only see your professional brand shine through. With the TriCaster 8000 system’s virtual sets, you can elevate your look with realistic foregrounds and moving backgrounds. Add realism to any virtual set with four live sources – each with four layers of overlay, all with transitions, sounds, 3D positioning and effects. Live camera moves and shot changes during production bring your new location to life.


New Dimensions in Live 3D Video.

Push the boundaries of visual technology with real-time, live 3D – and be ready when everyone else catches up. With the anaglyph filter affect, 3D video streams can be switched just like any other source – without requiring complex configuration. Audiences will never forget your productions – and they’ll keep them coming back to you for more.


Live Streaming Video. Simultaneously Recorded.

Gear up to perform for any audience, anytime, anywhere with both Web streaming and program recording built right into your production operation. Maximize online views with support for multi-bitrate streaming profiles, and access online CDN accounts and view streams in real time in the same interface. At the same time, record the entire program in the background for uploading, later viewing, archiving, or disk.


One-Size-Fits-All File Compatibility.

TriCaster 8000 adapts to your creative process, natively supporting a massive array of file format compatibility. With capture to QuickTime® encoded files embedded with timecode and 4 audio tracks, you have a high-quality, universal file format that floats effortlessly between TriCaster, Mac® and Windows® platforms, and all common editing and post-production software. With included codecs for Mac and PC, you can equip your entire facility to encode media assets for optimized, real-time playback.


Remote Audio Control.

A companion Apple® iPad® application delivers fingertip control over sound, and Avid® Artist Series hardware control surfaces provide TriCaster audio control if you prefer a more hands-on approach. So in multiple-operator environments, you can undock the mixer and share the workload, check levels and adjust the mix from any location in the production venue.
