NewTek Inc., manufacturer of industry-leading video and 3D animation products, today announced the TriCaster Upgrade Guarantee Program.
Customers can trade up any TriCaster portable live production system purchased between January 15 and December 23, 2009 for full purchase price credit toward a TriCaster, model XD300 previewed at the International Broadcasting Convention (IBC) 2009. TriCaster, model XD300, is scheduled to ship late Q4 2009.
"The NewTek TriCaster Upgrade Guarantee is put in place to eliminate customer concern that an upcoming model might be better suited for their portable live production needs," said Michael Kornet, chief marketing officer, NewTek Inc. "Now, customers can make a smart investment in TriCaster and begin producing immediately, knowing that they have locked in full trade-in value on their current TriCaster, should they choose to trade up to a new model."
With TriCaster, anyone can simultaneously produce, live stream, broadcast and project a network-style production. A single operator or small team can produce a live show while switching between as many as six cameras with two DDRs, multi-channel effects and NewTek's proprietary LiveSet(tm) virtual sets. TriCaster is used by broadcasters, sports organizations, schools, government agencies and others to provide a new level of extended programming and content to their audiences.
