TriCaster 8000 OMG

Well, I was completely wrong about the 9.4 times better even though I got the model number right (850 X 9.4 = 8000). The new TriCaster 8000 is mind blowingly better than the the 850. I'm still am trying to wrap my head around its capabilities and I'm not even sure where to start So I'll just jump right in.

In no particular order:

8 re-entrant M/E Buses. You can set these up with up to four live sources each including using an M/E as a source in another M/E.

4 Down Stream Keys (use any source including M/Es) plus four channels of overlay on each M/E

24 New Live Sets with virtual camera moves including panning, pedestal and zooming. You can adjust the moves on the fly. Optional LiveSet Editor.

Macros - configure complex switcher actions to a single button push.
8 configurable hot spots per input, let the talent run the show by triggering macros using these interactive hot spots.

Social Media Publishing - Integrate your live production into Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, Flickr, and other social media sites in real time.

Record multiple (8) video streams with timecode to the hard drive. Native support for Quicktime.

Animated transitions using the new TransWarp 3D effects engine. Includes a transition editor so you can create custom transitions.

Fully configurable multi-viewer.

Integration with Black Magic Designs Matrix Routers.

Motion tracking effects - I'll try to post a video showing this, it's hard to explain.

iPad audio control app - Turn your iPad into a remote, wireless audio control surface.

Oh, did I mentions it can do all this stuff in 3D? That's right built in support for 3D cameras and anaglyphic stereo imaging.

They were demoing the M/E buses by doing effects with literally millions of layers on screen at once. I was impressed last year by the 850 Extreme showing 5 layers at once so to say this is a bit of an improvement is a major understatement.

The price? You better sit down.

$39,995 including the control surface!

That's right less than the price of a TriCaster 850 gets you a TriCaster 8000. There is nothing on the planet with these capabilities. To even come close would require hundreds of thousands of dollars and probably a whole truck full of equipment. You have got to get one of these things!

Digital Arts will have one of the first units to roll off the assembly line, probably in late May. Units are scheduled to ship in quantity sometime third quarter of this year. Give us a call to schedule a TriCaster 8000 demo, remember we can do these on line. 1-800-692-6442
