Do you want to have Live Skype interviews that look great—and sound amazing?
As a broadcaster you know the live interview, It’s the most compelling aspect of a newscast, entertainment show, sporting event or webcast. Great remote guests will make your shows more engaging, but only when they look and sound as good as their perspective.
TalkShow VS-100 is a video calling production system designed for television studios and live event producers. Enhance every Skype video call with video and audio enhancements to deliver a great production to your audience.
Some of the most compelling, sharable moments in a live program take place outside of the studio. Having them makes your production look better, your audience gets greater perspective, and you gain more credibility.
It used to take a lot of coordination, expense, and equipment to capture these conversations live with satellite feeds or microwave relays-or else it took piecing together a homegrown, desktop chat solution that left everyone wondering whether the call would hold up.
Be ready for a live shot with anyone-around the world, anytime-directly from your studio or live production.
NewTek TalkShow VS-100 is the studio-grade solution to immediately add live interviews, perspective, credibility, and distinct competitive advantage to your program by easily incorporating 300 million monthly connected Skype users as guest speakers without the expense and effort of a live shot. Any video-enabled Skype user is just a call away.
- TalkShow eliminates extraneous field equipment and costs, removing the requirement for a remote ENG client or field unit in order to send a live feed back to the studio; commonly available consumer Skype software is all the guest or remote correspondent requires.
- With NewTek TalkShow, Skype video calls are augmented with Newteks renowned image processing system—based on the same powerful graphics engine utilized in TriCaster and 3Play production solutions—to provide video enhancements over common Skype calls.
- No additional bolt-on networking appliances are required to route calls into a live program; TalkShow is compatible with any in-house Ethernet network with 1.2 Mbps bandwidth for High Definition calling and plugs directly into any HD-SDI production switcher, giving full control of call, video, and audio to the in-studio operator.
- In NewTek TriCaster or 3Play environments, the hardware connection is not even required—calls can be routed from TalkShow into one of the network inputs of TriCaster or 3Play, reserving the SDI connection for other production sources.
Only TalkShow gives you complete control of the entire video calling workflow—before, during, and even after the show.
