LAS VEGAS – NAB Show – March 5, 2010 – NewTek, manufacturer of industry-leading video and 3D animation products, today announced the NAB TriCaster™ Upgrade Guarantee Program. Customers can trade up any TriCaster™ portable live production system purchased between January 15 and April 12, 2010 for full purchase price credit towards any new TriCaster product introduced at the 2010 National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) Show taking place in Las Vegas from April 12 to 15.
"Due to the popularity and success of last year’s NAB TriCaster Upgrade Guarantee, NewTek customers will once again be able to take advantage of this unique opportunity. This offer alleviates concerns about purchasing now rather than waiting for potential upcoming products that may be of interest," said Michael Kornet, chief marketing officer, NewTek. "With NewTek’s Upgrade Guarantee, customers can invest in any TriCaster model with confidence and deliver their network-style productions today without worrying about what innovations may come in the future."
With TriCaster, anyone can simultaneously produce, live stream, broadcast and project HD and SD network-style productions. A single operator or small team can create sophisticated productions while switching between multiple cameras, virtual inputs and live virtual sets, while automatically inserting clips, titles and motion graphics with multi-channel effects. TriCaster is used by broadcasters, schools, sports organizations, houses of worship, government agencies, and others to provide a new level of extended programming and content to their audiences.
TriCaster will be presented at NewTek Booth: SL10814.
