NewTek Tricaster Mini HD-4i

Ideal for creating live and on-demand video

The HD-4i version has a case display built into the chassis. This case display can be configured just like any other output and is helpful for local monitoring purposes.

Also, the HD-4i model includes two internal hard disk drives (HDD), which provide more than double the recording capacity (depending on resolution and format) and allow for full-capacity ISO recording (4 channels) without the use of external storage. Compare this to the more streamlined HD-4 model, which lacks the built-in case display and, similar to TriCaster 410,requires the use of external storage to take full advantage of the integrated ISO recording capabilities.

From the office, an event, or from anywhere... with TriCaster Mini, anyone using everyday camcorders can create and publish great video content in minutes, stream it live, and make even the smallest presentation captivate audiences like network-style TV.

You don’t have to be a video expert, own a studio, lug any complicated equipment around, or use expensive professional cameras to make great content quickly and stream it live in minutes. With everyday camcorders and TriCaster Mini, anyone can make a show with professional results.

Nowhere else will you find another solution that includes a complete suite of tools for creativity, control, and content publishing, all in one turnkey package. Just plug in some cameras, a mouse and a keyboard, and you can turn the smallest productions into engaging video content and stream it live in minutes, in the office or on the go.

No matter how simple or sophisticated your vision - or your skill level - TriCaster Mini’s complete creative toolset allows you to work with the media content you want, mix it into a production you design, and deliver it to the audiences you serve.

Perfect for creating, streaming and publishing online video content with everyday HDMI camcorders and little to no experience.
