Video professionals, broadcasters, bloggers, and organizations looking to stream video online, produce live events, and expand production capabilities have found that the world of video production is evolving. With more viewers watching online than ever before—and appetites for quality programming on the rise—you need to stand out, and look outstanding, too.

TriCaster 460 is the affordable, integrated solution to produce your 4-camera, 14-channel, HD live show with maximum creative firepower—but with minimal proportions. Designed for mobility and scaled for small spaces anywhere, TriCaster 460 provides rapid setup, complete live production capabilities, built-in multi-track ISO recording, and the world’s most powerful switcher effects system, for smaller shows to make the biggest impact from any location.

Explosive 3D visual effects, video playback, graphics, transitions, and virtual sets

Completely customizable visuals to elevate brand and company identity

Built-in live streaming at the push of a button

No massive cabling or complex components that require configuration

Deliver from a van, small studio, broadcast control room, backstage, blogger's workspace

14-Channel, Multi-Camera Production

Go from zero, to live with up to 4 cameras. Add digital media from four built-in players and 2 network sources for sharing computer displays or wireless iOS devices. Get 4 M/E-style virtual inputs to stage live virtual sets or create custom picture effects and presets. Use all of this for the quintessential live-show combination for starting out, breaking out, or adding on.

Mobile-Ready

Produce a network-quality show from places you've never been able to before. Make the most of just 2U of rack space in a production vehicle or other space. Expand the horizon of your live production comfort zone with a new freedom of movement that's just not possible with racks of individual components pieced together.

Scaled-down Fit

TriCaster 460 has vast turnkey capabilities without a monolithic footprint. Create a small workspace with room to spare. Integrate into an existing studio; slide into a tight space at school, the garage, or a storage room. Replicate your signature look across other programs, suites, and vans; or add to your current switcher, multiplying its channels, capabilities and visual appeal?upstream or downstream?at a price you can afford.

Multi-Track Iso-Recording

Innovative IsoCorder™ technology combines the capabilities of racks and racks of video capture equipment, enhancing TriCaster 455 with a built-in, real-time ISO recording system, accessible directly from the user interface. Multi-track, multi-format recording of up to four simultaneous channels lets you record your entire show, select footage from any camera, and more. Handle it all at full resolution to meet your most challenging post-production demands.

Electrifying Visual Effects

No canned, 'stock footage' look for you. Your signature look requires a style that makes an impression on your audience. TriCaster 460 hosts the most powerful integrated effects engine in live production. Choose from full-color, animated transitions with alpha channel and embedded audio; deliver a cohesive presentation with imaginative, branded elements, like real-time cloth dynamics, 3D video warping, and transformations with TransWarp effects and motion overlays. Create your own custom effects using the included Animation Store Creator application.

One-Size-Fits-All File Compatibility

TriCaster 460 removes the guesswork and gear-grinding that can spell disaster for a production on location, or in a time crunch. With default encoding in QuickTime®, encoded files embedded with timecode and four audio tracks, you have the comfort of a high-quality, universal file format that floats effortlessly between TriCaster, Mac® and Windows® platforms, and all common editing and post-production software. Plus, codecs for Mac and PC that let you encode media assets for optimized, real time.

All-Purpose Operation

This is what it's like to say yes to every request. Switching. Encoding. Streaming. Keying. Graphics. Playback. This is a 6-input, 2-output system design that hits the sweet spot for taking on productions of every proportion. Opportunity is banging down the door.

Creative Freedom

Let nothing stand in the way of getting the look you want or the professional presentation your organization demands. Multi-layered video compositing and motion effects. Fully-integrated virtual set system. Custom graphics creation. Develop a signature style or change it up. The choice is yours.

Stunning Studio Sets and Backgrounds

Raise eyebrows and the profile of your show. You can get a totally branded, network-style studio environment without the high cost or construction. Broadcast live from a multi-angle virtual set. Complement your presentation with double-box effects, custom graphics, and more.

Record Live Streaming Video, Simultaneously

It's easy when both Web streaming and program recording are built right into your production operation. Maximize online views with support for multi-bitrate streaming profiles, and even access online CDN accounts and view streams in real time with a built-in Web browser. Without missing a beat, record the entire program in the background for uploading, later viewing, archiving, or to save on disk.

Remote Audio Control

The integrated multi-channel audio mixer supports a companion Apple® iPad® application that delivers fingertip control over sound. You can literally hand over control of levels, connections, group assignments, and more with the popular touchscreen device, smartly sharing the workload, while keeping your small production footprint intact.
