NewTek Unveils TalkShow: Video Calling Production System for Television Studios and Live Event Producers

NewTek™ today unveiled TalkShow™ VS100, the video calling production system designed specifically for television studios and live event producers. With TalkShow, any television or live event producer can easily connect to anyone who can make a Skype video call, anywhere in the world, and incorporate them into live programs with full-frame Skype video. With more than 300 million connected Skype users per month, that's an incredibly big pool of potential guests to draw from.

The turnkey TalkShow system builds upon Skype TX software from Microsoft for initiating, receiving, monitoring and managing video calls. NewTek integrates its hardware and software technologies to provide a unique set of live production tools not found in other video calling systems. With TalkShow, users have access to customizable settings for fully color correcting live video calls, including features for automatic color balancing. On the audio side, users will have SDI-embedded audio, and compressor/limiter, equalization, and adjustable head-room controls for further improving audio quality.

These tools allow producers to deliver enhanced video/audio experiences that are critical when producing credible, high-quality broadcast programming and are simply not possible with standard desktop video calling products. Additionally, producers using TalkShow with TriCaster multi-camera video production systems will be able to route Skype video calls directly to and from a TriCaster over a network connection without tying up an additional HD-SDI input.

Attendees at the 2014 IBC Convention in Amsterdam from September 12-16 will be the first to see the new TalkShow video calling production system at the NewTek stand #7.K11.
