TriCaster Mini Advanced Key Features

With TriCaster Mini Advanced, you gain more than 100 additional video production capabilities compared to the original TriCaster Mini—at no additional cost!


Advanced IP Workflow


Video Over IP

Send and receive real-time, low-latency, frame-accurate video over IP on a standard network infrastructure via the NDI® protocol,Tek’s innovative Network Device Interface technology, with any NDI-enabled device on the same LAN available as a video source or destination.

Audio Over IP

Send and receive multi-channel audio over IP on a standard network infrastructure via the NDI protocol,Tek’s innovative Network Device Interface technology, with any NDI-enabled device on the same LAN available as an audio source or destination.

IP Source Selection

Access both the inputs and outputs of all NDI-enabled devices on the same network from any external input on the TriCaster switcher—dramatically increasing the amount of available video sources for any production.

IP Outputs

Distribute more video from your TriCaster system, sending output signals, sub-mixes or individual sources to NDI-enabled devices with 4 fully configurable, IP video outputs.


Audio


Audio Routers

Apply more sophisticated audio routing configurations, mapping any input channel (or combination of input channels) to any output channel (or combination of output channels) with four complete 4x4 routers for every audio input.

Input Level Control

Fine-tune sound with independent control for every audio channel—up to 4 per input.

Output Audio

Deliver pitch-perfect sound mixes for any setup, supplying audio signals via four IP-ready, quad-channel output busses—Master, Aux 1, Aux 2, and Aux 3.

Dante Audio Networking

Expand integration and IP workflow possibilities with audio input over the network from devices that use the Dante* networking protocol from Audinate. *Requires Dante Virtual Soundcard license from Audinate (sold separately)

Audio Recording Options

Configure the captured audio source for each ISO recording with per-channel audio signal selection.

Default Media File Level

Reduce time spent individually configuring audio levels for non-native clips and sound files by assigning a preset level to all files added to media players.

Noise Gate

Manage audio signals with greater precision using noise gate settings in the audio mixer to exclude low-level sounds.

VU Meters

Achieve higher-quality sound by determining audio clipping more easily and accurately with an updated VU meter interface.


Data


Use real-time data from internal and external sources in your live program without adding dedicated data input software. Built-in DataLink maps your selected data source to titles, comments, file names, and other fields in graphics templates, and updates their corresponding content instantly—automatically or on-demand—ensuring you have the most current and accurate information.

Save time converting detailed information like sports statistics and sales data into graphics. With DataLink and a CSV, XML or ASCII file, you can transform raw spreadsheet data into production-ready title pages that can be edited and updated in real time.


Macro Automation


Multi-Step Macros

When timing is everything but anything can happen, take control by creating automated sequences using macro commands with expert pacing and built-in pauses that wait for your (live) cue to resume.

Macro Triggering

Gain additional flexibility for activating automated macro sequences with triggers that include audio level changes, media playback, and specific switcher actions, and the ability to assign multiple triggers for the same macro.


Media Players


Playlist Effects

Produce more engaging playlist sequences from your on-board media by adding transitions between playlist media—and even combining real-time, slow-mo, and fast-mo with per-clip playback speed settings.

Real-Time Clip Editing

Speed up turnaround of raw recordings and video files for DDR playback with easy, built-in clip splitting and trimming tools.


Monitoring


Live Output Monitoring

Work with higher-quality output video previews with enhanced signal processing and full field-rate deinterlacing.

Display Outputs

Choose from more video signal selections to monitor, display, or project using the supplemental display ports—and customize every screen in your setup to your workflow.

Blue Only Option

Calibrate video signals with greater flexibility and accuracy with a Blue Only viewport overlay compatible with any monitor.

Monitor Proc Amps
