• The ability to connect a Y/C input either by 4-pin S-Video or dual BNC
• LiveMatte™ allows for faster setup of simple chroma-keys, and may be used without LiveSet

- Full-featured character generator, including scrolls and crawls, and the ability to easily produce title templates for live production.

- New 3 camera dedicated on-screen preview monitor display mode.I think these two items in particular are HUGE - congrats, dev team!:bowdown:

Well I don't dare ask when, and I bet Newtek won't ever announce another date after what happened with VT5, but any insights on what to expect?

I love your products, and have operated a VT-3 for 4 years without much of a glitch. I am shopping the tricaster but what concerns me...Am I overlooking features or Is the 'Studio' ready for the upcoming HD TV requirements? If bought today, please explain how the equipment will prepare me for the extended future with this fast approaching HD deadline...
Thanks

There is no "HD requirement". The upcoming FCC transition is for broadcasters to go to digital signals, whether they be SD or HD.

The answer to your question, though, is that TriCaster STUDIO is a standard-definition switcher.

Greetings we are the southwest museum of engineering communications and computation in Glendale Arizona that also sponsors a community journalism effort.

We are located in Arizona but not opposed to buying outside the state due to the following condition ( read on)

any resellers have units at the old price? I am having problems getting any kind of response from my local vendor. before the hike I had asked for a written bid and got... NOTHING?

I am not opposed to going out of state after that go around....I was also sick and pursue things as vigorously as I should have I suppose..... email me at the email address at www.smecc.org off list from here.
