This brand-new feature means users can easily pull any web page elements into a production without the need to use third party applications. Ranging from graphics or images to videos from your organization’s internal training platforms, this turns the entire internet into a source for your productions.

The TriCaster Mini X continues the all-in-one desktop form factor and turns every space it’s in into a full, multi-source production studio. TriCaster Mini X offers increased power and capabilities, including access to 8 external sources with 4 integrated HDMI inputs and supporting modern resolutions up to 4Kp30; and HTML rendering directly in the switcher, with access to HTML 5 motion graphics, webpages, web-based video playback and more without having to use a separate computer.
