TriCaster® 2 Elite Showcases Live Production Power with IBC’s 5G Accelerator Innovation Programme

Multi-location, intercontinental live production with ten world-leading broadcasters bring remote production components into a seamless, live workflow

SAN ANTONIO, TX––Sept. 8, 2020—NewTek, the leader in IP-based video technology and part of the Vizrt Group, is proud to announce that IBC is using the recently launched TriCaster® 2 Elite as its live production system of choice for an upcoming panel discussion on the cutting edge of broadcast technology.

Announced today as a special event during the live 5G Remote Production Accelerator panel – the ten project broadcaster ‘Champions,’ including the BBC, BT Sport, TV2, Yle, ViacomCBS, and Olympic Broadcasting Services, will rely on TriCaster 2 Elite’s unique remote production offerings and powerful, integrated live production capabilities to explore use cases for 5G-enabled remote broadcast. 

NewTek will also participate on a panel with key vendors including AVI West, LiveU, Mobile Viewpoint, and Sony, followed by a live proof-of-concept showcase incorporating a series of key use case demonstrations from Amsterdam – back hauled and produced on the TriCaster 2 Elite from Viacom London. The event is being live streamed at 5 p.m. CET, on Sept. 10 with registration at www.ibc.org/ibcshowcase.

Creative Freedom Through Technical Responsiveness

The 5G Remote Production Accelerator team chose TriCaster 2 Elite for its ability to bring in a number of unique and dynamic live feeds from around the world. The TriCaster family has proven to be a resilient live production system thanks to its remote production offerings. When the global pandemic required social distancing, many pivoted to remote live video – including individual entertainers, schools, houses of worship, and corporations – and TriCaster live production systems lived up to the demand to provide high quality content wherever the sources may be.

The world-first 5G proof-of-concept IBC event will bring in a number of unique elements, including AI enabled cameras, drone shots, a live performance from a boat, and the RAI in Amsterdam. These will be transfered via IP to Viacom London for final mixing and delivery via TriCaster 2 Elite.

“TriCaster is designed to enable creativity through technical responsiveness,” said Liam Hayter, senior solutions architect at NewTek. “When people have a brilliant idea for live video, TriCaster is the enabling production hub device. TriCaster 2 Elite is the true definition of creative freedom, so when the IBC 5G Accelerator came to us with bold ideas for a production, we knew we had the solution that would enable those ideas to become reality!”

TriCaster 2 Elite

TriCaster 2 Elite sets a new standard for production in today’s multisource world, with a unique mix of core functionality unavailable in any other system. Nearly every web conferencing tool including Skype™, MS Teams™, Zoom Meetings™ and Discord™ is supported, as well as all IP video sources including NDI®, SRT, RTMP, RTP, HTTP, SRC, and smartphones. These, along with almost unlimited traditional SDI sources, can be accessed and used simultaneously, meaning show producers will be able to connect with in-studio guests and remote video callers without compromise or worrying about connectivity.
