NewTek, founded in 1985 in Kansas, by Tim Jenison, who was known as the father of desktop video, one of NewTek's most significant contributions has been the creation of TriCaster, a revolutionary live video production system. The TriCaster has enabled producers, content creators and media professionals to deliver high-quality multi-camera productions, visual effects, audio mixing and live streaming, all in one compact, easy-to-use device.
A comprehensive solution that has democratized live video production by offering an affordable and accessible alternative to the most expensive and complex traditional systems.
In addition to the TriCaster, the brand has developed a wide range of products and solutions ranging from portable production systems to video network solutions and workflow automation. Its focus on IP-based technology has been a breakthrough in the industry, enabling the integration of different devices and the transmission of high-quality video over standard IP networks.
NewTek also implemented NDI (Network Device Interface) technology (created by Andrew Cross, CTO of NewTek), an open protocol for transporting video over IP. NDI has revolutionized video production by enabling the transmission of high-quality real-time video over IP networks, simplifying network configuration, and expanding the possibilities for connectivity and collaboration in video production.
The company has won numerous awards and accolades for its technological innovation, including an Emmy® Award for leadership in live video technology.
In short, NewTek has left a significant footprint in the live video production industry. Its focus on technological innovation, creating end-to-end solutions, and adopting open standards has transformed the way video is produced and transmitted in real time.
