NewTek TalkShow 

NewTek TalkShow

  The innovative reputation we’ve earned for delivering the most-complete multi-camera production systems on the planet now extends to TalkShow, enabling television studios and live event producers everywhere to reach millions of monthly connected Skype users.

TalkShow eliminates extraneous field equipment and costs, removing the requirement for a remote ENG client or field unit in order to send a live feed back to the studio; commonly available consumer Skype software is all the guest or remote correspondent requires.

With NewTek TalkShow, Skype video calls are augmented with our renowned image processing system—based on the same powerful graphics engine utilized in our TriCaster and 3Play production solutions—to provide higher-quality video enhancements over common Skype calls.

No additional bolt-on networking appliances are required to route calls into a live program; TalkShow is compatible with any in-house Ethernet network with 1.2 Mbps bandwidth for High Definition calling and plugs directly into any HD-SDI production switcher, giving full control of call, video, and audio to the in-studio operator.

In NewTek TriCaster or 3Play environments, the hardware connection is not even required—calls can be routed from TalkShow into one of the network inputs of TriCaster or 3Play, reserving the SDI connection for other production sources.
