(Edmonton, Alberta - November 6, 2007) UniSon Production Products and Global TV Edmonton, for the second Thursday in a row has used the ultra portable TriCaster Studio for live switching of the 6:00 evening news hour.
Instead of being produced in Global TV studios, Global took the news show "On The Road" and produced it in the large atrium of the bytes cafeteria at Northern Alberta Institute of Technology.
"There are times when using the large mobile production truck just isn't what you want. You want to be able to move out of the studio, out of the mobile truck and right into another building. Sometimes that room is a long ways from the mobile and you need to be set up right in the same room. We were looking for a portable system that would be easy to setup, rock solid and easy to use."
"Thanx a bunch for introducing the Newtek Tricaster to us and to making it available for both of our “On The Road” productions. It performed quite well, without any hiccup. We are very appreciative for your assistance during the shows, and are looking forward to checking out the new VT5." - Vic Gobeil - Global TV Edmonton
