Overview

The NewTek TriCaster Mini Advanced HD-4 SDI With Control Surface And Travel Case is a compact, all-in-one multimedia solution that allows you to simultaneously broadcast, stream, and record live productions from virtually anywhere. The eight-input switcher lets you easily switch between four SDI or eight NDI video sources, mix audio, add graphics and titles, and add advanced effects such as virtual sets and animated transitions. Featuring an intuitive and full-featured control software, the TriCaster Mini Advanced HD-4 SDI is suited for both new users and seasoned professionals.

In addition to the four SDI inputs, you can choose from four NDI devices on the network, including computers, PTZ cameras, or even wireless capture devices. Two SDI outputs are provided for sending the Programme output with audio to external devices.

The TriCaster Mini Advanced HD-4 SDI features an internal 1TB SSD drive and also supports recording to external storage via USB 3.0. The comprehensive switcher also supports live streaming to multiple platforms and services simultaneously. A keyboard and mouse are included, and the optional TriCaster Mini Control Panel can also be incorporated for traditional tactile control with a T-bar and illuminated buttons.

Key Features:

Video and Audio over IP

Send and receive real-time, low-latency, frame-accurate video and multichannel audio over IP on a standard network infrastructure via the NDI protocol, with any NDI-enabled device on the same LAN available as a video source or destination.

IP Source Selection

Access both the inputs and outputs of all NDI-enabled devices on the same network from any external input on the TriCaster Mini Advanced, dramatically increasing the number of available video sources for any production.

IP Outputs

Send output signals, sub-mixes, or individual sources to NDI-enabled devices with 4 fully configurable, IP video outputs.

Audio Routers

Apply more sophisticated audio routing configurations, mapping any input channel (or combination of input channels) to any output channel (or combination of output channels) with four complete 4x4 routers for every audio input.

Input Level Control

Fine-tune sound with independent control for every audio channel—up to 4 per input.

Output Audio

Deliver pitch-perfect sound mixes for any setup, supplying audio signals via 4 IP-ready, quad-channel output busses—Master, Aux 1, Aux 2, and Aux 3.

Dante Audio Networking

Expand integration and IP workflow possibilities with audio input over the network from devices that use the Dante networking protocol. (Requires Dante Virtual Soundcard licence from Audinate, sold separately.)

Audio Recording Options

Configure the captured audio source for each ISO recording with per-channel audio signal selection.

Default Media File Level

Reduce time spent individually configuring audio levels for non-native clips and sound files by assigning a preset level to all files added to media players.

Noise Gate

Manage audio signals with greater precision using noise gate settings in the audio mixer to exclude low-level sounds.

VU Metres

Achieve higher-quality sound by determining audio clipping more easily and accurately with an updated VU metre interface.

DataLink Integration

Use real-time data from internal and external sources in your live programme without adding dedicated data input software. Built-in DataLink maps your selected data source to titles, comments, file names, and other fields in graphics templates, and updates their corresponding content instantly (automatically or on-demand), ensuring you have the most current and accurate information.

DataLink File Watcher

Save time converting detailed information like sports statistics and sales data into graphics. With DataLink and a CSV, XML, or ASCII file, you can transform raw spreadsheet data into production-ready title pages that can be edited and updated in real time.

Multi-Step Macros

When timing is everything but anything can happen, take control by creating automated sequences using macro commands with expert pacing and built-in pauses that wait for your (live) cue to resume.

Macro Triggering

Gain additional flexibility for activating automated macro sequences with triggers that include audio level changes, media playback, and specific switcher actions, and the ability to assign multiple triggers for the same macro.

Playlist Effects

Produce more engaging playlist sequences from your on-board media by adding transitions between playlist media, and even combining real-time, slow-mo, and fast-mo with per-clip playback speed settings.

Real-Time Clip Editing

Speed up the turnaround of raw recordings and video files for DDR playback with easy, built-in clip splitting and trimming tools.

Live Output Monitoring

Work with higher-quality output video previews with enhanced signal processing and full field-rate deinterlacing.

Display Outputs

Choose from more video signal selections to monitor, display, or project using the supplemental display ports, and customise every screen in your setup to your workflow.

Blue Only Option

Calibrate video signals with greater flexibility and accuracy with a Blue Only viewport overlay compatible with virtually any monitor.

Monitor Proc Amps

Compensate for environmental lighting conditions and external display settings with configurable colour settings for the user interface, multiview, and display ports.

Multiview Scopes

Calibrate video signals with greater precision using large waveform and vectorscope displays on multiview.

Clean M/E Output

Optionally elect to output an M/E sub-mix without real-time overlays for flexible downstream use or archive.

Control Surface Mapping

Access additional video sources directly from companion control surfaces, with revised CS button mapping for the updated switcher layout.

Control Surface Support

Pair your choice of TriCaster control surfaces with your TriCaster Advanced Edition system, with universal support for all current CS models.

Hardware Configuration

Streamline hardware setup with local input and output connections, including Genlock and PTZ settings, centralised to a single configuration panel.

LTC

Automate external timecode configuration for your TriCaster production, including 24-hour wraparound, simply by plugging in an LTC timecode source.

Video Layer Management

Easily identify, monitor, and manage switcher BKGD, DSK, and KEY layer video sources in real time, with enhanced controls that include full-time, full-motion confidence monitors and an integrated layer priority system.

SDI Auto-Detect

Save time during SDI system setup with automatic detection of resolution and frame rate for most session-format SDI cameras.

IP Network Tally

Reduce on-air mistakes with a visual indication of on-air status supplied over the network to compatible systems sending output to TriCaster network inputs.

Metadata

Attach comments to sources, clips, and images to simplify and sophisticate your workflow at the same time. DataLink uses comments as internal data sources to feed titles, label published content, enter metadata, and more.

UI Enhancements

Work more efficiently and keep a closer eye on the show with visual indicators, updated shortcuts and control tools, hover tooltips, and other on-screen improvements.

Button Lock

Protect your live programme from accidents or mistakes by locking control surface buttons to their current state.

Session Recordings

Locate and verify active and completed recordings more quickly with a dedicated Session Recordings browser folder.

Grab Configuration

Snap screenshots from your show with grab controls, optionally capturing stills right from any external switcher video source or simultaneously capturing a collection of stills from any combination of four outputs.

Publish Targets

Share media from your production with even more online communities, with publishing destinations that include Imgur, LinkedIn, Vid.me, and Vimeo.

Multi-Account Publishing

Maximise productivity and reach more friends, fans, and followers with the ability to publish media to multiple user accounts on the same social network simultaneously.

Flex Media Publishing

Publish more files to more places in more formats using an upgraded publishing workflow that also supports file import while live, export, and transcoding right from the Publish queue.

Alpha Grabs

Grab stills from local bins, complete with alpha channel transparency, for publishing or post-production use.

In-Show Replay Controls

Turn everyday productions into drama relived, without adding extra hardware or crew. Capture and replay highlights of the live show, with on-screen controls and other replay elements, including intro and outro transitions, clip speed and duration, angle selection, and auto-playback action.

Automation and Integration Guide

Expand your knowledge and your programme's potential with a detailed guide to macros, shortcuts, advanced automation, and integrated production with the TriCaster Mini Advanced HD-4 SDI.

Developer Library

Get even more out of the deepest functionality of the Mini Advanced HD-4 SDI, and expand your entire production ecosystem using tools and examples to develop your own workflow extensions.

Enhanced Live Streams

Simplify your webcast workflow with easier setup and one-click presets (now including settings for Microsoft Azure, Twitch.tv, and YouTube Live), and upgrade your online presence with higher-quality live streaming video.

Multi-Platform Live Streaming

Multiply your potential audience without adding an encoder, reach more viewers, and attract different audiences by live streaming to multiple platforms and services simultaneously.

Auto Labelling

Maintain visual confirmation of active live inputs with the option to allow switcher buttons to be automatically labelled for their corresponding NDI sources.

External Input Configuration

Freely configure the external inputs on the TriCaster switcher for any combination of connected cameras, hardware video sources, or IP video sources.

Input Filtering

Easily locate and select the desired input from the list of all available hardware and NDI sources with precision filtering mechanic and thumbnail source previews.

Switcher Inputs

Access more live sources with the number of external inputs on the switcher increasing from 6 to 8.

Switcher Banks

Access and mix with all sources from the switcher, including every input and buffer, with two tabbed button banks and 16 MEM slot presets.

Router Support

Expand camera coverage with any TriCaster Pro Line model (and even TriCaster Mini) by connecting to a compatible upstream video router, and then selecting and switching between router sources directly from the user interface.

Undo/Redo

Avoid the stress of troubleshooting and backtracking by handling unwanted changes or unintended results instantly with undo and redo commands.

LiveSet Lens Flares

Add an extra touch of realism to live virtual set presentations, with enhanced LiveSet technology providing the option to display animated lens flares that respond to changes in virtual camera positions.

Second KEY Layer

Create more sophisticated visuals—each M/E now includes a second key layer to apply titles, graphics, and video overlays.

Auto Colour

Reduce manual effort in correcting for variable lighting conditions and camera settings (especially at outdoor events that would often require a dedicated shading station) with automatic colour matching between video inputs.

Border Effects

Create and customise on-screen elements and boost your production value with more detailed compositions, sophisticated visuals, and custom multi-box effects by adding borders and shadows to video layers.

Buffers

Gain 5 animation buffers to access and playback stored animations, motion graphics, and looping clips without sacrificing the DDRs.

Augmented Reality Key Layers
