    Why I was thinking about 6 channels was because the interface is 6 input interface. 4 hadrware inputs and 2 network. SO if you can with the AE have more inputs in the interface, thats is awesome. But I guess that the prestanda on the comuter will be a limiting part. And I was also meaning without using an 2nd tricaster. Only one Tricaster and several cameras that send the signal to the tricaster.

    It IS awesome, which is perhaps why it's been a bit hard to accept what I'm saying. Maybe this will make it clear. Below, see screenshots of the *upcoming, AE (ND1-enabled) Mini Switcher, showing two 'banks' of sources. Note the 8 external inputs, each of which you can opt to assign as either NDI or local hardware inputs.

    * Currently scheduled for release in Q4.

    Honestly, this is the best time ever to be a TriCaster owner. There is good news of all sorts, much of which has yet to be discussed.

    I agree with this too (Axia audio via Livewire). Their products rock and a lot of radio stations use them. Could open up lots of possibilities with making TV shows out of radio.

    A lot of people are already doing just that with TriCaster. IP is definitely the way to go, agreed.

    Then this is brutally, totally awesome. I was just focusing on that the Mini have 4 inputs. So this mean that I can have 2 HDMI and 6 network sources.

    This is also a huge money saving step. Put the money on the more powerful Tricaster 410 instead of lot of Ip to HDMI/HD-SDI decoders. That's a $1600 saving on each channel. So instead of buying the Mini and 4 Teradek decoder. Buy the Tricaster 410. And also cost saving if I can send the PGM out via IP to our Playout for Live transmission on the Cable network and skip the HDMI/HD-SDI encoder.

    Here's an added bonus, worth mentioning again in case it was not clear. Not only do you also gain the ability to connect multiple devices to your TriCaster's network output (not previously possible) with an NDI-enabled AE system - you will also have 4 (yes four!) fully independent network outputs (in addition to the direct network outputs from your hardware inputs).

    Well, I was talking about something else ... but you're probably more interested in audio routing (i.e., four 4x4 matrices on each source, one for each output).

    ...head spinning, must sit down.

    One question though, is NDI routable?

    Do you mean 'Is audio over NDI routable?', or something else Jeff?

    No, can I route across routers like on say a college campus. Or do both NDI devices have to reside on the same network leg.
