Newtek has unveiled an updated version of its TriCaster 40 multicamera video production studio.

Version 2 of the HD system includes overhauled visuals, an animation store for full-motion colour overlays, and a dedicated title station with preloaded templates that display real-time data. Newtek chief technology officer Andrew Cross said the updated model “gives the most budget-conscious storytellers a whole new class of professional tools which, if purchased individually, would each cost far more than the TriCaster 40 itself “.

The software for existing users is priced at £899. A full system with the updated software will cost £4,499.
