Jan Ozer of Streamingmedia.com has a detailed tutorial on how to create a broadcast-quality live production with the Newtek Tricaster.
This is a must-read tutorial. In his own words, this is what is covered:
In two tutorials I’m going to show you how to create broadcast-quality live production with the NewTek TriCaster TC40. In this first installment, I’ll show you how to select and configure the inputs. In the second, you’ll learn how to mix and stream the show itself.
The definition of broadcast quality is admittedly pretty vague. In the example I’ll use in this tutorial I’m producing a webinar that will include full-screen video, picture-in-picture video, PowerPoint slides from a separate computer, full screen and lower-third graphics, disk-based videos, pre- and post-show advertising and credits, transitions for all elements and, of course, audio.
