(San Antonio, Texas – April 07, 2005) NewTek, Inc., manufacturer of industry-leading 3D animation and video products, announced today that they will be giving away a TriCaster™ each day at NAB 2005. Visitors to NAB Booth SL1949 who watch a TriCaster demo will be given a special TriCaster bag. The NewTek prize patrol will be roaming the show floor and randomly giving sealed prize envelopes to the individuals spotted carrying the TriCaster bag. Prizes range from NewTek hats to a TriCaster valued at $4,995.00.
With the release of TriCaster, NewTek makes it easy for corporate presenters, educators and churches to craft media-rich presentations by combining live cameras, PowerPoint ® support, pre-edited video, and titles, using a suite of tools all labeled in plain English rather than video jargon. In addition to allowing the user to produce presentations that have the immediacy of Live Television, TriCaster allows simultaneous distribution of the production to Video, Internet and Projectors, with integrated scan converters and scalers.
"TriCaster allows presenters to bring the powerful dynamics of live television to their presentations by making it easier and faster to seamlessly mix live camera input, video clips, audio, computer graphics and PowerPoint to create and deliver a compelling message via video, projector or web streaming," said Philip Nelson, Senior Director of Video Marketing. "TriCaster takes traditionally expensive and bulky hardware and combines them into the first portable live presentation appliance. "
