    I've seen an official date, and it's not very far off, but you'll have to forgive me for deferring to Marketing on when to announce details.

    Let's hope it's reasonably priced.

    For some reason I was thinking about the Globalstreams' CS-100 and CS-1000 the other day. Their pricing was... unrealistic. And we all know how that went....

    Wow! At $8,000 MSRP, that's an expensive control surface.

    Yeah, it's essentially a well built USB keyboard. I can't imagine anyone attempting to charge more than, say $3000 for such an add-on.

    LC-11 is $2k ... TriCaster TCXD850 CS is so much more than LC-11 it's hard to begin to explain it. Frankly, I expect the price will reflect that.

    No official public announcements regarding the new control surface (TriCaster TCXD850 CS) have been released or authorized to date. Please stay tuned for official information in our press release section (http://www.newtek.com/press_releases.php), here in the forums, on Facebook, and so on. Thanks for your interest!

    Our company just purchased an 850 Tri Caster last week and was wondering if anyone had any dimensions for the controller so we can tell our case manufactuer

    Indeed, I don't think you can be faulted, Myyk, the violation (or error, if we want to put a kindly light on it) was elsewhere.

    This is not official, but my tape measure is telling me roughly 28.5" wide, 2.75" high at the rear, and about 1.25" at the front. I cannot promise that shipping units will be exactly the same, but I'd expect them to be reasonably close.

    Hi Steve, I believe you're missing a dimension. I think the guy's point is that he wants to put it in a flight case. At 28.5" it would't fit a rack, which might discourage him from purchasing. I'm guessing the missing dimension would allow it to be contained in a long lid or trans-laterally.

    Ah, the ever-popular depth - looks like about 11 and 9/16 inches. I should mention, too, that the height (from the base) would need to allow for the joystick, which is a smidge over 5 inches.
