    Connecting Two Tricasters from two different Locations

    Does anyone have a workflow like this? We want to connect two Tricasters from two different states. How is this achieved on two different networks? I feel like I have seen other users do this before but wasn't sure. Any Ideas?

    I would probably do this with a Ubiquity Cloud Key for simplicity, though any method of setting up a VPN should work. Bandwidth will certainly be a concern for NDI.

    I agree. I've set up NDI connections over a VPN (with equipment in different states). It works...but not well. The connection is there, but the bandwidth is a real struggle.

    Or NDI cloud? (I have no experience with them, just got this link from another thread).

    If the TriCaster's are TC1 units, you can use the built in Skype TX to connect them together.

    I don't suppose you have access to "dark fiber" between the two locations - that would make things super easy and guaranteed to work well.

    Routing it all over the Internet might be acceptable, but super unpredictable.

    I need to find another heavy TriCaster user with gigabit FiOS in another state to try that out...
