    Video Signal Delay

    I am looking at buying a tricaster but am concerned about delay in signal.

    We are doing live productions on a large LCD screen at live events.

    The audio is coming from a Live PA system. should I be concerned about this?

    We are using sony remote camera using composite or s video signals

    There are quite a few threads here about latency (the short version is that a) some is unavoidable, but b) you can do things to help, c) lot of it comes from other devices in the chains, and d) some latency is probably actually a good thing - it's all about planning, design and the venue).

    As well, there's a decent discussion of the subject in the manual, which I think is available for download somewhere on this site.

    Yes, Steve, the TriCaster manual is on NewTek's public FTP site.
    Don't stream it - TriCast it!

    Wow, I think this is the fourth TriCaster Latency thread I've seen today.

    The general rule for IMAG is that it's for the people in the back. Sound travels 38 feet in one frame. So a viewer sitting back about 27 rows will have perfect lip sync with the TriCaster's three frame latency!

    Hang your screens high and to the side or over the heads of the front of the house and the latency won't be an issue.
