Expand the capabilities of your TriCaster Mini HDMI switcher with NewTek's TriCaster Advanced Edition Software. Because the Advanced Edition is only a software update, the physical setup of your switcher does not change, however the capabilities of the very same hardware are expanded. With the updated software, NewTek also refreshed the user interface with a clean, understated appearance.

From the office, an event, or from anywhere. With TriCaster Mini, anyone using everyday camcorders can create and publish great video content in minutes, stream it live, and make even the smallest presentation captivate audiences like network-style TV.
The Advanced Edition software enhances the graphics integration capabilities of TriCaster switchers. It enables data driven graphics with real-time updates, and advanced 3D implementation of layers of video, graphics, or text that behave like elements in the scene. Virtual inputs are also added for taking video sources over a network using the Dante protocol. Dante also provides network tally information for connected systems. You can also grab source material from the web, stream to multiple providers, and publish content to social media sites directly from your TriCaster Mini HDMI.
Audio Output Configuration: Dedicated output of Master and Aux audio mixes from TriCaster's built-in audio mixer directly to external audio gear. With this revised configuration, Master and Aux are supplied to the first two analog output groups, respectively.
Audio Recording Options: Capture your configurable sound source for ISO recordings with per-channel audio signal selection.
Default Media File Level: Reduce time spent on individually configuring audio levels for non-native clips and sound files, and instead assign a preset level to all files added to media players.
Noise Gate: Manage audio signals with greater precision using new noise gate settings in the audio mixer to exclude low-level sounds.
VU Meters: Determine audio clipping more easily and accurately with an updated VU meter interface.
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.
Macro Triggering: Gain additional flexibility for activating automated macro sequences with new triggers that include audio level changes, media playback, and specific switcher actions, and the ability to assign multiple triggers for the same macro.
