Getting Started with TriCaster® TC1 Chapter 7: Remote Video Calling
April 23, 2019 by Richard Evans, video; Chuck Baker, text.
Bringing in a guest or an expert commentator from a distant location with both video and audio is now a regular production task for news and talk shows. TriCaster® TC1 includes two built-in Skype TX channels to handle such remote call-ins. In this tutorial, our video producer Richard Evans walks us through the processes in TriCaster to set up and use these channels in production.
In addition, he demonstrates how the channels are sourced - they are setup and controlled externally, using Skype TX Controller software installed on a laptop or desktop computer. This allows for complete call management of even a very active roster of phone-ins without impacting the technical director (TD) switching the show. An example would be a visual radio call-in talk program; callers coming in via Skype participate in the visual component of the show, rather than just being a disembodied voice.
