NewTek Developer Network participant Teradek provides a free Stream Reader plugin for TriCaster which allows integration with their encoder units, including Teradek Cube. With this free plugin, TriCasters operating with Standard Edition or Advanced Edition 3-2 and earlier can receive video streams from Teradek encoders for live production. In this video tutorial, Teradek Support shows the necessary steps to get set up and running with this configuration.

Note that for TriCaster Advanced Edition 4-0 (with IP workflow) and later systems, the TriCaster inputs support only NewTek NDI protocol for IP workflow, so there is no need to use the protocols described in the video. Teradek is, however, adopting NDI, and any Teradek product that supports NDI is visible to the TriCaster Advanced Edition 4-0 system as soon as NDI is activated on the Teradek product.
