2010 NAB Show Review

NewTek Tricaster

NewTek Tricaster

Given the skyrocketing use of webcasting and streaming and the relentless industry-wide effort to connect with radio listeners, a new-found focus has been given to offering video in addition to the traditional audio component of radio.

Several varieties of small video production systems were shown. The Newtek Tricaster offers a condensed video production system in one unit. Some syndicated radio shows are already using this system to produce video. Need more portability? Speedtream has developed a backpack system that stream live video via Wi-fi or 3G/4G.
