    Can I push the Preview to a comfort monitor on my set?

    Hi there.
    First of all I am really new to all this having replaced a colleague a couple months ago.
    I want to take the Preview feed and push that to a comfort monitor live on my set so that the presenters can see what is happening.

    is there an easy way to do this?

    Thanks
    Keith

    Hi Keith,

    What model TriCaster are you using, and do you have Advanced Edition software? Do you perhaps mean the PROGRAM feed? That is what is happening live. Regardless of model, you should have at least two program outputs, for instance on the TC Mini, and am pretty certain one of those could be changed to PREVIEW in Output Config panel (hit GEAR below Program window).

    Not sure what options TriCasters with "Standard Edition" software offer these days since I haven't used one in a while, but TC1 or any model with "Advanced Edition" software offers extremely flexible options for routing any source to any output. Including NDI, meaning a laptop on network could be used for confidence monitor, no video cabling needed in that case.


    Thanks

    If it's the 8000 you can assign the PVW to one of the mix outputs then just cable it up. There's a couple of SDI outputs and a HDMI output.

    Output 1 and 2 on older TriCasters, you can use the drop down to change it from Program to preview.
