NewsMaker Systems


NewsMaker Systems will demonstrate its NewsCaster family of news production automation systems.

NewsCaster CONNECT provides a seamless bridge between an existing newsroom system and the NewTek TriCaster family or IP Series. By facilitating quick communication between these two previously incompatible systems, broadcasters can in seconds design rundowns within their newsroom system, populate them with all of the various media assets needed for their show and export the rundown to their TriCaster or IP Series. 

As the show progresses, NewsCaster CONNECT continuously monitors the TriCaster or IP Series and dynamically makes updates to reflect changes made in the newsroom computer system. 

NewsCaster CONTROL is a full automation suite for the NewTek TriCaster family and IP Series. With NewsCaster CONTROL, a full broadcast can be designed, imported into the TriCaster or IP Series and put on the air by a single person.

At the Sportzcast stand in the NDI Central Pavilion, the company will show its ScoreHub, its next generation Scorebot from Sportzcast. 

Built to succeed the Scorebot 4000 for real-time data distribution from any scoreboard. ScoreHub adds new components, including a touchscreen LED control panel, wireless connectivity options as well as HDMI and native NDI implementation.

Users can design a completely custom scoreboard graphic on any PC and overlay real-time scoreboard data fields. The graphic is uploaded to the cloud via Sportzcast’s CloudFX plugin where it is synced with the real-time scoreboard data from the ScoreHub. The completed graphic is then instantly available at any destination via NDI or HTML. 

More information is available on the Sportzcast website.
