NewTek Releases TriCaster Virtual Set Editor (1/3/2011)

New application lets users personalize their HD production with customizable sets

NewTek, worldwide leader in video and 3D animation products, releases NewTek TriCaster™ Virtual Set Editor (VSE), which allows TriCaster TCXD850 and TriCaster TCXD300 users to customize TriCaster high definition (HD) virtual sets to fit their production needs.

With TriCaster Virtual Set Editor, producers get exclusive TriCaster VSE Sets that produce real-time reflections and specular highlights, and have a wide variety of elements that can be edited.

TriCaster VSE users also have the option to create their own virtual sets by populating Layer Sets with their artwork, or composing layers in Adobe® Photoshop®, and then importing the layers into TriCaster VSE, which instantly transforms the PSD file into a Layer Set for use in VSE.

Once a TriCaster virtual set has been customized with Virtual Set Editor, users can easily export it for immediate use in their TriCaster live production.

Virtual Set Editor includes three TriCaster VSE-compatible virtual set content files, three Layer Sets and three PSD examples. For a limited time, VSE will ship with three bonus sets, valued at over £ 700, providing early buyers with a total of six VSE-compatible virtual set content files. Additional content may be sold separately.

“With the quantity of live shows being produced every day, both for broadcast and the Web, it’s crucial that producers are able to personalize their programming with a look that viewers will recognize,” said NewTek Executive Vice President of Engineering, Andrew Cross. “TriCaster VSE lets users of TriCaster TCXD850 and TriCaster TCXD300, customize live virtual sets or create them from scratch. The intuitive interface allows for quick and easy navigation, and producers will find it a very affordable approach to designing a studio environment that is every bit as unique as their content.”
