Expand the capabilities of your production studio to cover any corner of the earth with an Internet connection with the NewTek TalkShow VS4000 multi-channel videocall system.
With the TalkShow VS4000 you can simultaneously engage up to four guests, in real time, via Skype TX, and include them in your show with minimal latency and maximum Full-HD quality. SDI connectivity can be used to integrate the VS4000 into a professional broadcast system, while NDI and Dante support allows you to take advantage of the NewTek video and audio over IP.
Each incoming video feed can be adjusted separately, both picture and sound, before being output via SD/HD-SDI or IP, according to the playout specifications. The return video is also processed, to ensure that a clean stream appears on the participants' Skype-enabled devices. All video and audio adjustments are made "in the box" and in real time, using the powerful internal computing hardware. Despite its power, everything is enclosed in a single 1RU space, including the power supply, for easy mounting in a standard equipment rack.
Independent control interfaces
Easily set up a multi-operator production workflow, with separate interfaces for call management and production. Skype TX Control software can be operated from the TalkShow VS4000 system, or installed on other equipment as a stand-alone call control centre, allowing the producer to manage calls and talent, while a production operator handles video and audio.
Group or call queue
Connect with any combination of guests from around the world, simultaneously or in sequence, for compelling live conversation, expert analysis, real-time commentary and in-depth discussion.
Receive IP video calls anywhere on your network. NewTek's built-in NDI technology allows Skype video calls to be routed to any compatible NDI receiving device (including TriCaster and 3Play), while allowing any NDI video source to be selected and sent back to the caller over the network.
Advanced Audio Control
Independently adjust incoming and outgoing audio signals for the highest quality sound, with the only video call system to offer built-in gain control, graphic equaliser, compressor/limiter and noise gate settings.
High quality live video
Make sure your guests look as good as they sound with enhanced real-time image processing and fully configurable correction tools, including gain controls, automatic colour adjustments and white balance. The video returned to the caller is de-interlaced, for a clean return signal.
Real-time call monitoring
Make every call with confidence, using high-quality, moving video previews, accurate on-screen audio VU meters and selectable multi-screen display layouts with configurable overlays.
