Ultra-complete live production system, designed with your way of working in mind and equipped with hundreds of advanced production features, it has everything you need to make a professional video production. Designed to produce professional live and recorded content in SD, HD or UHD 4K. Its 16 potential video sources can be used simultaneously, regardless of resolution. And with NewTek's Network Device Interface (NDI), many types of video sources can be connected directly via standard network infrastructure. The unit itself contains four SDI inputs and outputs for direct connection of broadcast video and audio sources. HDMI, DisplayPort and DVI can be used for multi-view display. Embedded audio and balanced XLR or 1/4" local audio can be mixed and manipulated using the internal digital audio mixer.
All TC1 features are available in a compact 2 RU form factor that can be secured with other equipment in a standard equipment rack. Control surfaces, monitors and NDI video converters can be purchased separately to expand the functionality of the TC1. Whether you're broadcasting sports, talk shows, concerts, worship services or anything else, it's a solid central point with which to bring your broadcast infrastructure together.
It offers an immersive viewing experience defined by stunning clarity and incredible detail. It facilitates the production of live programs, performances, events and sports in true 4K UHD (Ultra High Definition) resolution with support for native 2160p video at 60 frames per second, allowing 4K UHD video to be switched, streamed and recorded without compromising frame rate or the number of available inputs.
