NewTek TriCaster Now Features Tally Lights Integration

Tally-Lights' new TriCaster Controller can manage up to 8 tally lights connected to a TriCaster, enabling on-camera talent to know which camera to look at during a live production

Tally-Lights, LLC announced today that it has integrated with the industry-standard TriCaster family of products with USB connectivity. This new controller allows TriCaster owners to use either tally light or USB output depending on the model being used.

“I am incredibly excited to introduce this new feature,” said Tally-Light, LLC., founder and senior design engineer Ted Kazmierczak “TriCaster is very popular among our users, and for those users who have them, this is not only going to make their lives a lot easier, but it's also going to allow them to do more with the resources they already have.”

“With Tally-Lights TriCaster integration, we have created a solution that will work with the complete NewTek TriCaster line. It’s an innovative system that can be wireless or wired and it triggers our standard tally light that mounts on the camera hot-shoe with seven LED lights, six facing the talent and one facing the camera operator,” says Kazmierczak.

Tally-Lights' new TriCaster Controller can manage up to 8 tally lights connected to a TriCaster. This makes it possible for on-camera talent to know which camera to look at when doing a live production. It also gives the camera operator a more visible cue when cameras are live. The new USB TriCaster controller also provides PREVIEW as well as PROGRAM display to alert the camera operator that he is potentially next up.

“This is a great addition to the NewTek Developer Network. NewTek customers can now benefit from the Tally-Lights controller with the entire TriCaster family,” said Michael Kornet, EVP of Business Development at NewTek. “Tally-Lights provide a well thought out product that helps our customers simplify the complexity of producing a show.”
