    Just purchaed a TC Studio 2.5 and have no idea how to use it... :)

    I'm a computer guy so maybe I have 1/4 of the battle won, but I don't know anything about TV production.

    I'm not a high end guy so I'm using 3 Sony VX-2000's for a studio shoot. I'm going to be recording videos for my Wi-Fi education website. I have a Sennheiser wireless lapel mic and studio lighting. So, besides my remote camera switcher that Jef is making for me, I think I'm pretty much set.

    A few questions: Are there any video or written tutorials on TC operation? I tried a Pro a while back and I could do some simple work, but I'm guessing I'll need more education.

    Any educational references, tips and tricks would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    How about Class On Demand TriCaster training DVD's? Great company.

    There's also a well written manual that walks through through set-up and operation.

    It should have come with a very good big spiral bound manual, if it was new. If not call or email Newtek about getting one.
    Ask your dealer about the mentioned DVD tutorials.
    Also there are some specific tutorials and some good overview videos on the Tricaster webpage.

    The manual is available for download as a .pdf in the pub\tricaster folder at ftp.netwek.com. Look for "TC_Family_Manual.pdf".

    You'll want to get the registration for your system switched over to your name. Customer Service can help with that. You'll need proof of purchase (to demonstrate that the sale was legit), and afterward you will have access to software updates by download.
