The TriCaster 40 is a live production switcher, streaming system and recorder, all in a box.
Being more cost-effective than all of its relatives, the TriCaster 40 streams to just about anywhere, includes 4 camera inputs with 14 channels to switch between, and conveniently records out as MPEG2. Switcher software comes installed free of charge.
A simple mouse and keyboard replace the control surface on higher-end models. Setup is easy and you always have the option to add a control surface or CG software.
