NewTek announced that its TriCaster 40 multi-camera, desktop video production studio has been chosen by the readers of Streaming Media Magazine as the Streaming Media Reader’s Choice Award Winner for Best Portable Live Streaming Appliance. TriCaster 40 creates a new entry point for broadcasters and producers with limited resources who need full-resolution, HD, multi-camera live production and streaming capabilities, and is the first solution on the market to offer such a comprehensive set of real-time video production capabilities for under $5,000 (US).

The easy-to-operate TriCaster 40 is a cart-or-carry, all-in-one production and streaming solution that makes it easy for people to create a video program and reach viewers everywhere—live or on demand—whether through broadcast, projectors, or over the Web. TriCaster 40 eliminates complicated setup and cabling between production components while integrating video switching, graphics, titles, effects, media playback, virtual sets, keying, recording and streaming in one compact, professional solution.

“NewTek TriCaster 40 offers anyone the opportunity to create a professional looking, high-quality, multi-camera television show and share it with the world,” said Jim Plant, NewTek president and CEO. “We are honored that the readers of Streaming Media Magazine have recognized TriCaster 40 as a leader in the live streaming category.”
