NewTek TriCaster owners are able to choose from an increasing number of third party products to support their live productions. The latest offering, announced today, is a software Character Generator (CG) from Compix Media. With base functions of a fully-featured CG with 260+ transition effects and built-in templates and two optional add ons for 1/ channel branding (with automatically updating headline feeds) and 2/ ability to broadcast social media conversations from Twitter and Facebook.
Loaded on a laptop or desktop PC with a network connection, Compix Linx allows users to add broadcast graphics and overlay them in real time by streaming directly into the TriCaster system.
With no proprietary CG hardware to buy, rack up, and take up valuable inputs of the TriCaster, users can save thousands of dollars with Compix Linx while producing sophisticated on-screen graphics. Compix Linx also includes two options: channel branding capabilities with automatically updating headline feeds, and the ability to broadcast social media conversations from Twitter and Facebook.
Compix Linx starts at US$4,995 and is available in CG, Branding, and Social packages. Compix is accepting orders at NAB and is expecting to ship beginning April 22, 2013.
Look out for a video later this week as part of or NAB coverage.
