View Full Version : Recording size

We have been playin with our tricaster and recording some videos to the hard drive, is there a way to run an encoder as the video is recording?

With everything above a basic (TC-100) TriCaster, yes, you can click both the 'Record Output' and the 'Stream Output' buttons at the same time. With the original TC, alas, no. It's a CPU thing.

so if you stream and record at the same time it automatically encodes in high quality instead of the lower quality webstream?

From my understanding you can stream out, record the live output AND record the "lower size/quality" webstream.

I should have been clearer, but it still depends on which model of TriCaster you have.

With the TC-100, you can EITHER record an NT25-codec AVI OR stream a Windows Media stream (which you can also optionally record to the hard drive as it encodes).

With all models above the TC-100, you can do both simultaneously, although the codec used for the AVI save has evolved, and 2.0 will deliver some new options there, as well.

Does that make more sense, chris_h?
