NewTek, Inc., manufacturer of industry-leading video and 3D animation products, today announces that its new LiveText™ optional titling accessory for the line of TriCaster™ portable live production and virtual set systems is now shipping. LiveText allows a dedicated graphics operator access to hundreds of ready-to-use professional titles for their live web stream and video projects. Installed on a laptop, the system provides an operator direct control of full pages, lower thirds, scrolls and crawls "on the fly" as video content is being streamed live. The results can be previewed for director approval or sent immediately to air.
By allowing a dedicated person to control all titling aspects of a production, LiveText lets the director focus on the flow of a live web stream or video project and improves the reaction time and accuracy of new titles added in show.
"LiveText boosts the quality of any producer’s output with advanced, flexible and easy to implement titling options that can be performed live," said Andrew Cross, NewTek’s Executive VP, Software Engineering. "Anyone who has produced a live program, from sporting events to news, knows the creation and management of titles can be stressful. LiveText greatly improves this aspect of the live production experience."
