The next-generation product family, which includes TriCaster 8000, TriCaster 855 and TriCaster 455—enables professionals to meet rapidly evolving consumer demand for high-quality, live programming, by delivering live video content to multiple viewing platforms with greater speed and flexibility than any other live production systems on the market."With 28% of the global online population watching video on mobile phones, and video accounting for 40% of all Internet traffic, the industry has reached a point where professionals need tools with capabilities that far exceed most traditional video production systems," said Andrew Cross, NewTek CTO.
