Two New Products for NewTek's TriCaster

Tally-Lights, LLC announced today that it has integrated with the industry-standard TriCaster family of products with USB connectivity

 This new controller allows TriCaster owners to use either tally light or USB output depending on the model being used.


"Tally-lights is excited to announce this new connectivity to the TriCaster family", says Ted Kazmierczak, founder and senior design engineer. "Having launched our products to meet the LightFlashingneeds of TriCaster users, it is imperative that we keep pace with NewTek's development efforts. In fact, all of our product development is market/customer driven and their need to use our tally lights with virtually any switcher on the market."

“With Tally-Lights TriCaster integration, we have created a solution that will work with the complete NewTek TriCaster line. It’s an innovative system that can be wireless or wired and it triggers our standard tally light that mounts on the camera hot-shoe with seven LED lights, six facing the talent and one facing the camera operator,” says Kazmierczak.

Tally-Lights new TriCaster Controller can manage up to 8 tally lights connected to a TriCaster. This makes it possible for on-camera talent to know which camera to look at when doing a live production. It also gives the camera operator a more visible cue when cameras are live. The new USB TriCaster controller also provides PREVIEW as well as PROGRAM display to alert the camera operator that he is potentially next up.

“This is a great addition to the NewTek Developer Network. NewTek customers can now benefit from the Tally-Lights controller with the entire TriCaster family,” said Michael Kornet, EVP of Business Development at NewTek. “Tally-Lights provide a well thought out product that helps our customers simplify the complexity of producing a show.”

Rundown Creator announced today that it has integrated with the industry-standard TriCaster family of products as one of the newest members of the NewTek Developer Network.

 The integration allows users to insert titles, graphics, audio clips, and video clips into their scripts in Rundown Creator, and play them out on a TriCaster using Rundown Creator's new TriCaster Playout Controller.

“I am incredibly excited to introduce this new feature,” said Rundown Creator founder Jeff Zimmerlin. “TriCaster is very popular among our users, and for those users who have them, this is not only going to make their lives a lot easier, but it's also going to allow them to do more with the resources they already have.”

With Rundown Creator's TriCaster integration, title templates, graphics, audio clips, and video clips on your TriCaster all show up automatically in Rundown Creator, and inserting them into your scripts is as simple as selecting the one you'd like in the Script Editor.

Rundown Creator's TriCaster Playout Controller can manage up to 20 channels on your TriCaster, including 2 graphics inputs, 15 framebuffers, 2 DDRs, and an audio player. It generates a single playlist with all of the elements in your show, so even with that many channels, playback is as simple as just pressing the space bar on your keyboard.

The playlist is real-time too, so it automatically updates when changes are made to your rundowns or scripts. It's also fault tolerant, so it can continue to function even if the user's Internet connection goes down.

“We are very excited about Rundown Creator's TriCaster integration, not only because it's a valuable addition to our many TriCaster customers worldwide, but also because it's a great example of the power and flexibility of the SDK platform that NewTek offers to developers who want to integrate with our products,” said Andrew Cross, Chief Technology Officer at NewTek.


“It's been an absolute dream come true to work with NewTek on this project,” said Zimmerlin. “If we needed something―anything―they made it happen. They've been great.”
