NewTek TriCaster 8000 is the first live television production platform that allows producers to create multi-camera video programs for live events, broadcasting, web streaming, and projection, while simultaneously publishing clips and stills to Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, and Flickr. With the share of audiences for live and on-demand viewing on mobile devices now approaching that of connected televisions—even for long-form video—TriCaster 8000 transforms live television to suit the ways audiences view it. 

As the hands-on toolset for video publishers and producers executing a live production, TriCaster 8000 is a multimedia hub for all media sources coming into a program, all content and branding that happens on screen, and all destinations to where the program is output, with an operator piloting the entire show from a hardware control surface that comes standard with every system.
