Overview

TriCaster Virtual Sets

TriCaster live virtual sets are realistic, software-modeled studio environments that you can create in any 3D program and store right in the system. They allow you to place your talent into a high-end studio—without the expense, construction, and inflexibility of a physical set—no matter how small your production space is or what it looks like. All you need is basic lighting and a simple green screen or solid-color backdrop, and TriCaster will help turn your location into a sophisticated, network-style studio environment.

You can use Virtual Set Editor to create your own, but to get you started, each TriCaster model comes with several complete virtual sets in multiple styles and settings to give your location a professional makeover right out of the box. Take a tour and start planning the next big look for your small production space.


 

NewTek has added even more super-powered capabilities to the most complete multi-camera video production system on the planet, supporting more sophisticated integration, enabling more advanced workflows, and providing more creative flexibility with professional TriCaster models.
