Digital Arts is pleased to announce our new Tally Light controller and Tally Lights for the NewTek TriCaster and VT families of video switchers.
The Tally Light Controller TLC-6 adds a sophisticated tally system to your TriCaster or VT. Compatible with all TriCaster models with 2.0 or higher software and VT and above. The TLC - 6 in conjunction with the TL-1 tally lights adds status and 'talent' tally lights to any camera.
Each of the six output channels gives you four LED outputs - Program (Live), Preview and Effects bus indicators. Plus an output for a separately controlled tally for the on camera 'talent'. The Talent tally can be software selected to illuminate when the camera is on the program bus, the preview bus, the effects bus or any combination.
In addition to the LED outputs each channel also includes two contact closure outputs that can be connected to most camera CCUs for program and preview tally.
If you're not using CCUs (which usually provide intercom connections) you can configure the TLC-6 to pass through intercom signals over the tally cable. The TLC-6 has an XLR connector to connect directly into your intercom system.
The controller also has two GPI outputs. The first provides a contact closure every time the source on the program (Live) bus is changed the second does the same for the Effects bus. You can use these outputs to trigger any GPI compatible outboard equipment.
VT users who have more than six cameras can connect up to four TLC-6 controllers for a total of 24 outputs.
The TLC-6 uses inexpensive RJ-45 (Ethernet type) cables to make it easy to build custom length cables using off the shelf parts and requiring no soldering skills.
The Tally Light One in conjunction with the TLC–6 provides three status LEDs for the camera operator that indicate whether the camera is active on the Program. Preview or Effects bus as well as a bright tally indicator for the on-camera talent.
The Tally Light One includes Velcro mounts or use the optional accessory shoe mount.
The Tally Light One is also compatible* with the tally outputs on the front of the TriCasterTM Studio and Broadcast and our original Tally Light Controllers TLC-1, TLC-2 and TLC-3.
*Only the Tally Light One's Program and Talent LEDs illuminate.
