    That's a nice Photoshop? See the logo on the casing? :-)

    Isn't that almost the same as the 3P820 controller?

    Similar, but not identical. (The metalwork is, of course).

    Just a bit of clarification, the TriCaster 850 TW has not yet been released. Only announced. It is projected for release in September.

    Thanks, but looking good already!

    If I understand the info from this pressrelease and the previous info on how the 'old' TimeWarp works with the 850 Extreme, this can save you some sweet money?

    If you only need only 1 channel of slomo/replay, you could skip on the the 3P820, get this 850TW (for $2495) instead and still have 8 recordingchannels (one of which is taken up by the TW), and 2 DDR's (one of which would be used for the TW). And still have animation stores, still stores and framebuffers to fill any kind of background or transition you would want in effects.

    Sweet!

    Yes, an EXTREME with TW is a powerful and flexible tool, but does not really correspond 100% with what a 3P820 does. In a given situation, one or the other might be the correct solution.

    Will the old Timewarp still work with future TC850 updates or will Newtek only support the new controller for the TC HD line in future?

    Will there be a crossgrade for existing Timewarp owners?

    Regards

    Yes, it will; and so will LC-11, RS-8, and so on.

    I don't know, sorry.

    Question Steve,
    So if you are using the TC850 Extreme, as an example, can you record the program out and say AUX with it set to clean and then use the AUX out for the replay while never disturbing the Program out recording?

    Thanks in advance,

    Hi I have the XD850 with the 850 CS I am not familiar with the 850TW. In the press release it states that it's also suitable for use with XD850.
    What extra functions will it offer that can not be done with 850 CS.
    Where can I find documentation on how to use it with the XD850.

    TW stands for 'Time Warp', and 850 TW fulfills a role similar to the earlier TW-42, that being primarily in connection with instant replay applications. To serve in that way, it uses TriCaster's DDR(s), and for that reason, provides DDR control features as well.

    Since 850 CS likewise offers DDR controls, there is a measure of overlap of functionality between the two control surfaces. (This is necessary to allow 850 TW to work alone.) The most important things it adds to the mix are the In/Out marking buttons, which do rather more than simply toggling Record on and off (which the CS can do), the Jog wheel, and speed T-bar.

    850 TW will work very nicely with an 850, but really shines with an EXTREME, thanks to IsoCorder.
