SDK Programs

NewTek‘s Video SDK Program is designed to provide access for third-party developers to a series of NewTek Software Development Kits (SDKs) for our TriCaster and 3Play products. Developers using these tools can tap into the power of NewTek iVGA, LiveSet and DataLink technologies and extend their capabilities seamlessly. The program also includes the ability to access add-on plug-in architecture and support for remote control through a TCP/IP communication link. For information about requirements, access, eligibility for the program, and additional benefits for qualified developers, please send an email to [email protected] with your complete contact details today.

ivga sdk


This SDK allows third party developers to write applications using the standard Windows DirectShow interface to send video data to a TriCaster system over the network using the iVGA protocol. This currently supports all models of the TriCaster products although some limitations of resolution and frame-rates are present with the SD TriCaster units.

DataLink SDK

The DataLink SDK provides for the development of additional plug-ins which provide new data sources that can be used to provide dynamic data for use with LiveText.

remote control sdk

Remote Control SDK

This SDK provides the tools to remotely control NewTek video products from the “XD” product line. Remote control is over a TCP/IP communication link and so allows any device or system that allows these to be programmed to send messages to control the products. The initial version of this focus on TriCaster TCXD850, although we anticipate to extend support to other products.

TriCaster Streaming Plug-in SDK

The TriCaster Streaming Plug-In SDK allows third party software developers and integrators to build their own plug-ins that will be used to provide alternative streaming capabilities to the TriCaster. The API allows specific URLs to be registered and custom streaming implementations to replace the integrated TriCaster streaming functionality.

TriCaster XD Add-On API

Additionally, applications can be added to the TriCaster Startup Screen through the Add-On plug-in architecture. This provides a way for developers to seamlessly add their own applications to the menu and integrate them into the TriCaster.
