NewTek TriCaster 460 Vision Mixer with Latest Advanced Edition Software Upgrade
This unit started life originally as a NewTek TriCaster 455, but a paid software upgrade from NewTek turned it into a 460. Last year I spent another £1,850 on an additional upgrade to the latest NewTek AdvancedEdition software.
It’s spent time in a permanent studio set up as well as on the road and has always been flight cased and well looked after while on it’s travels. It’s recently had a new power supply unit fitted by CVP in the UK and had a full test and MOT of all its drives and hardware while it was there.
This NewTek website details the full spec of the TriCaster 460 system and and I've also listed below some of the key features of the system below:
•4 x HD-SDI, SD-SDI or Component or Composite inputs
•3 x 2 Balanced ¼ and 1 x 2 Balanced XLR audio inputs
•2 x DDR video players
•30+ HD live virtual sets with presents and multiple camera angles
•Record up to 4 channels of video across two hard drives using IsoCorder technology
•HD live streaming to a wide variety of sites including Facebook, YouTube and Vimeo.
The NewTek website also details more than 100 benefits of the Advanced Edition software, and I’ve listed some of the ones that really stand out since I upgraded the system last year:
•The addition of 4 additional video inputs via NewTek NDI IP video protocol
•Multi step macros to help you automate even the most complex tasks on the system with a single button press
•Ability to set up instant replay video playback during live filming and recording
•Multi-platform live streaming means you can now stream to two different locations at the same time
Essentially, it’s a fantastic all in one box for filming, recording and streaming a huge variety of video content.
The 460 units are available to buy new in the UK from companies such as CVP for £13,395 ex VAT and I think that a price of £5,500 is fair especially given the added software upgrades that are included. It’s available for free collection from me in York, but I do regularly travel across the UK for work and would be happy to drop it off it I was passing close by. Alternatively, we can look into shipping costs depending on where you are and agree the cost for this before I dispatch it to you.
If you have any questions at all, just let me know.
