    The use cases for me are pretty straight forward for me..

    1. Even though I have a 855 this box could be used for 24/7 replay keeping hours off the 855.

    2. At shows we could us this as our floor crews recorded video inject system we have always had challenges loading media into the 855 while live. This unit could be standalone and we could feed and que videos.. Kind of a cheap replay system.

    I can see another whack of 5k on my credit card

    Yes Just what we need a 5k tricaster to compete with our 30k ones.
    I understand the differences but
    In a pinch the 40 can do most smaller events just fine.

    Maybe look at the silver lining. Most of the entry level doesn't have the rest of the required gear to do serious events, much less the experience and expertise ... but a guy like you could multiply the number of concurrent events you can undertake quite easily with TC40. I doubt you'll see much added competition, but your own offerings could expand.

    The educational TriCaster 40 sells for $4,995.00 and includes a free standalone copy of NewTek's LiveText remote-titling software plus a free curriculum guide. The TriCaster 40 CS control panel sells for $995.00 educational.

    FYI, our dealer demo TriCaster 40 arrives tomorrow, along with several for-sale units.

    No, but I imagine resellers have this info. Just to mention it, sales and policy questions are not really in my own realm, and there have been a couple of good ones raised. I'll draw them to the attention of my betters.

    This is really phenomenal news. Congrats to all at NewTek.

    As a member of the NewTek tribe since my purchase of the TriCaster 100 in August of 2005 (so the DISTINCT similarity between (what I'm reading of) the sales price of the 40 to that of the TC100 in '05 is not lost on me AT ALL), what's been disappointing to me -- as merely a part-timer in this business, really a hobbyist more than anything -- is that, as the amazing products have kept coming along, the bar for entry has kept getting higher and higher. Folks (or institutions) who want to start out doing amazing video production, editing and streaming were put off by the cost, especially in the past year or so when lower-cost (and not nearly as feature-rich, of course!) alternatives began to appear.

    This is going to solve a lot of problems for a lot of people. I'm working with a school right now that was dragging their feet on an XD300, when what they really needed was a TriCaster 40. Looking forward to seeing and using one, and thanks again.

    We've been looking to upgrade to HD cameras for our church and add streaming capability. At work I have a TC Studio. When I saw the announcement email and the price, I nearly cheered out loud. Awesome!

    I have a few questions:

    Does the TC40 have a built in video editor like the Studio does?

    It looks like it has two E-SATA ports on the back. Am I seeing that correctly?

    When using the (I can't remember what it's called) thing where you can stream a computer display over the network via ethernet as an input... If the computer you are streaming from is a dual monitor, is there a way to select which monitor is sent to the TC40? For example, the computer we use to run EasyWorship for the words up on the projector screen is a dual monitor setup, so the the person running it can preview what's going up on the screen. Will I be able to just send the Monitor 2 signal?

    The TriCaster 40 doesn't have a built-in software editor like the TriCaster STUDIO. You will need to export your files to another system and edit them there. If you like the editor that comes with the TriCaster STUDIO you can purchase a standalone copy of that program (SpeedEDIT) and install it on a Windows-only PC.
