With network-quality production value in native HD, creative freedom to meet every brand standard, and a fully-loaded 24-channel switcher with up to 18 sources plus additional video, text, graphics, animations, and virtual sets, the TriCaster 860 lets you meet viewers on their own home turf with built-in Web streaming, broadcasting, recording and projecting. All at the same time. And all in a single-box solution.

Unlike higher-channel solutions or dedicated broadcast switchers that cost more, require further investment in third-party equipment, and still have fewer capabilities.

A complete, integrated solution for delivering live productions.

Built for performance, rigged for power, and with the capacity to add more new shows, take on more clients, and create more programming that can be distributed quickly.

And with industry-standard SDI video, plus robust format compatibility and a litany of file types, the TriCaster 860 eases into your workflow and handle your unique needs.

Product essentials:

  • 8 M/E, 24-channel video switching with audio mixer, titles, warping transitions, buffers, DSK and DVE effects
  • Higher-capacity media storage accommodates a high volume of project work
  • I/O and source resolution, format and frame rate flexibility to go from show to show, adding new camera angles and submixes along the way for the most sophisticated programs
  • Holographic LiveSets that incorporate 3D environments, panoramic vistas, and real camera motion
  • Extensive automation and breakout control of commands and complex sequences
  • Custom, interactive elements and effects sequences triggered by talent
  • Instant social media publishing
  • Built-in live streaming at the push of a button
  • Stream, broadcast, project and record—live or in post—so you can meet viewers wherever they watch, now or later
