Relative to use of an XD300 in tandem with 3Play, it seems reasonable that the XD300 ought to have 4 video inputs at the minimum, IMHO, the fourth input might be called "Aux" if that helps.

'Makes for a more impressive duo, since, when connecting, say, the 3Play's output into one of the XD300 inputs -- you'd still have 3 available XD300 video inputs for SD/HD cameras; plus, NewTek would certainly have a leg up, in surprising the industry pundits who thought the "3" in the model number necessarily indicated a 3-camera maximum.

Well, because of how Tricaster is put together, 6 inputs would be optimal - 4 inputs would require an integrated router, and with a router they could, just as easly, build it with 6 inputs.

Personaly, I think that the HD tricaster will have it's own name, s'mthing like "Tricaster HD Extravaganza";)

It would so make my day, nay - my year, if NewTek delivered a 6-input, international XD300 in Q4 2009:)

Will it be able to stream HD (a 5mb h.264 file?)

That's not yet determined, Dean.

"Extravaganza" for me at least, conjures up imagery of a supposed huge sale, on the premises of a nearly-empty automobile dealership.
:D

Besides, I'm liking the fact that the "XD" moniker suggest something much bigger and better than mere "HD" resolutions.

:i_agree:
6-input, international version? You're not alone, jstar - you're not alone!
