NewTek Inc. said its TriCaster portable live production and virtual set system will be used by the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum to record and archive programs for on-demand viewing at its Web site.
TriCaster lets organizations produce, live stream, broadcast, project and record a network-style production that can be archived for on-demand viewing. NewTek has been pushing to expand its universe of users, including radio stations and other organizations not traditionally in the video business. The manufacturer says an operator or small team can produce and stream a live show while switching between up to six cameras with two DDRs, multi-channel effects and NewTek’s LiveSet virtual sets.
Museum Director Kyle Young told the company that the TriCaster will help it further its efforts to identify and preserve the evolving history and traditions of country music and to educate its audiences. “We strive to be a ‘museum without walls’”, he said.
