NewTek releases new hardware control surface for TriCaster TCXD850
NewTek has released the TriCaster TCXD850 CS, a hardware control surface for the TriCaster TCXD850 HD, portable live production system.
The TriCaster TCXD850 CS provides a physical connection to the 24-channel system’s functions and effects, enabling operators to make snap decisions with confidence and ease.
The TriCaster TCXD850 CS hardware provides illuminated push buttons, twist knobs, a premium T-bar and three-axis joystick to control all of the functions and effects available in the TriCaster TCXD850.
Benefits of the new control surface include the following:
- An intuitive control layout enables the TriCaster TCXD850 operator to have touch control of all sources.
- Virtual input rows deliver the ability to create complex switcher effects and assign them as switcher channels.
- A new utility row offers a simple way to assign video streams to the TriCaster’s auxiliary video output and downstream key elements.
