SAN ANTONIO – November 14, 2012 – Tech & Learning announced the winners in its prestigious 30-year-old recognition program and NewTekTriCaster™ 455 was honored and acknowledged as an outstanding education technology product.
TriCaster 455 is a multi-camera video production solution for emerging web and video pros, and schools or facilities with small or mobile production suites.
It combines complete professional live production capabilities with built-in Web streaming, in a compact solution scaled for booths, studios and vans, and allows video production teams to quickly reach their audiences from anywhere.
“More and more schools want to stream events live for the benefit of parents, deployed military friends and family members, alums who have moved away, and any other fans who are unable to attend games,” said Philip Nelson, NewTek SVP of Artist and Media Relations. “Receiving the award just reaffirms to us that it doesn’t matter if it is a student, booster club member, parent, coach or teacher—anyone can produce a high-quality, live streaming broadcast for their school using TriCaster 455.”
