Live Control LC-11 Ships

NewTek announced the immediate availability of LiveControl™ LC-11 optional switching surface for TriCaster™ portable live production studio and VT[5]™ Integrated Production Suite. LiveControl lets directors mix live cameras, tape decks, digital disk recorders (DDRs), titles and graphics with digital video effects in real-time. It also provides the advantage of touch control of each TriCaster input for more compelling productions with tighter pacing. Used in tandem with NewTek’s new LiveText™ and TimeWarp™ accessories, LiveControl more efficiently integrates titling, replay and slow motion into TriCaster and VT[5] live productions.

LiveControl is available in two versions: LC-8 with 8 video inputs for TriCaster™ and LC-11™ with 11 video inputs for TriCaster PRO™, TriCaster STUDIO,™ TriCaster BROADCAST™ and VT[5].

“LiveControl allows technical directors to keep their eyes forward and react quickly, which is critical in fast-paced production environments,” said Andrew Cross, NewTek’s Executive VP, Software Engineering. “The simple layout and large back-lit buttons provide the physical touch and feel of control mechanisms already familiar to professional technical directors, so they can operate a TriCaster or VT[5] right out of the box.”

LiveControl benefits include:
•Tactile experience for compelling live productions with more control, improved workflow, tighter pacing and accuracy
•Rotary dials enable users to quickly choose their titles, pictures or transitions
•Large, back lit buttons provide easy transitions from one source to the next without looking down or using the keyboard or mouse
•T-bar provides “hands-on” experience to manually control your transition sources
