    Comparison Tricaster 8000AE2 + VMC1 & IN

    Short question:
    Is there anything you could do with a Tricaster 8000 AE2, but not do with a Video Mix Engine & Input Module?
    Already any comparison sheets available?

    Off the top of my head, I want to say no (with the obvious exception of having just 4 SDI inputs). Otherwise I can't think of any absent functionality, but maybe Kane or Zane can.

    From a software standpoint, I'm not aware of anything on the 8000+AE2 that isn't in VMC1. VMC1 does have a few things not found in 8000+AE2, like 4 DDRs, NDI 8 way matrix output and that all media players and buffers are available as NDI sources (and I"m sure I'm missing things).

    From a hardware standpoint, there are a few differences between the units.

    TC8000 has analog I/O, AES I/O and removable drive bays.
    VMC1 has 3G-SDI I/O, dual 1Gbit NICs, dual 10Gbit NICs and support for 4 monitors (1 Interface and 3 multiview).

    Can you specify which kind and size of harddisks are inside the VMC1?
    I saw in manual that you still can record up to four video sources, right?

    Best regards,

    The VMC1 has two 3TB internal hard drives and an SSD boot drive.

    The VMC1 has four channels of Quicktime recording.
