(Anaheim, Calif.-June 11, 2007) NewTek, Inc., manufacturer of industry-leading video and 3D animation products, announced that its TriCasterPRO portable video production device has been chosen by Knockout Digital Media to stream Disneyland’s media coverage of its two-day press event to commemorate the return of the Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage attraction on June 10 and 11.
Seventy members of the media from around the world will participate in this event.
Four TriCaster PRO models will be used to stream live programming over the Internet for the first time ever from the Disneyland property. Exclusive Web coverage of the grand opening ribbon cutting ceremony will also be streamed. Knockout Digital Media, which has been selected as the exclusive multimedia production company for this press event, will oversee four live interactive sets at which video content will be produced for worldwide press.
" Knockout Digital Media and NewTek make such a great team to take our events to the next level,” said Jay A. Hatcher, Disneyland’s Promotional Support Broadcast Manager. “We are excited to bring the benefits of the TriCasters to the table to take what has traditionally been a static one camera webcast to a dynamic switched three-camera show. We will ‘wow’ our media partners while working within a modest budget.”
“ Knockout Digital Media¹s cutting edge approach to live event multimedia coverage has impressed all of our clients from ESPN to Walt Disney World thanks to TriCaster. Now we will present another impressive showcase for the device’s live multimedia content streaming capabilities at Disneyland,” said Gil Chavez, President, Knockout Digital Media. “NewTek has been incredible in maintaining its clear vision of the future of internet television and trailblazing past the competition with the reliable, portable, and powerful TriCaster.”
