TalkShow exclusive advantages

Setup

TriCaster Integration
Save those SDI I/Os. Direct network integration via NewTek’s AirSend™ technology allows a TalkShow unit to supply a video call to TriCaster, and receive a return signal from TriCaster, without using SDI hardware connections, but using Ethernet instead. TriCaster will also send a tally notification downstream to TalkShow to indicate when a Skype call is on air. Small and Simple Why take up precious space? Each TalkShow unit is only 1RU of rack space—giving you more room to add more calls. Integrate easily in single or multi-unit installation, with easy access to front and rear USB ports for unmatched accessibility to control devices and storage connections in any production environment.
SDI Embedded Audio
Reduce complex cabling and keep installation simple. TalkShow is the only Skype TX solution to fully support embedded SDI audio on input and output, reducing cabling requirements and providing added flexibility for integration into established workflows.
Better Return Sound
With TalkShow’s exclusive support for four channels of audio on input for signals coming into the system over the network or SDI, and either front or back pair selectable, operators can have more than one audio feed—such as mix-minus—available for use as the return audio back to the caller.
Audio over IP
You heard right. With fully integrated Dante™ audio support, TalkShow interfaces with other audio devices utilizing the Dante networking protocol from Audinate®. In addition to sending and receiving audio over the network, and versatile audio source selection, TalkShow supports extensive management of network audio signals, including gain, equalization, compression, metering, and more.
On-Air

Talk Back
Communicate off-air with the Skype caller directly, with a headset and the click of a button. With TalkShow’s talk back function, operators, producers, or directors can speak with the caller as easily as they do with in-studio talent and crew, and prepare the caller, provide instructions, and relay additional information before they go to air.
Color Correction
Outside the controlled studio environment, when lighting conditions or color characteristics are less than ideal, easily compensate with TalkShow. It’s the only solution to include NewTek’s fully configurable proc amp settings and auto color correction, so picture characteristics can be optimized dynamically in real-time—without requiring monitoring. Remote callers’ video can be all over the place, but you can make sure your viewers see a professional presentation.
Preview Monitoring
The promise of full-motion Skype calls should pay off with full-motion previews, so operators know exactly how the call is proceeding. Where other solutions may make you rely on video previews with a frame rate of approximately 5 frames per second, TalkShow supports full-motion, high-quality video previews for real-time monitoring of input and output signals.
Tally Support
Always know who’s talking. TalkShow is the only Skype TX solution to support a tally overlay visual for return to callers, indicating when they are on air. The tally overlay is customizable, allowing for a show logo or graphic of choice—not only to let callers know when their conversation is live, but to provide for additional branding opportunities for your program as well.
Built-In Video Screen with Tally
TalkShow operators can view a full-color preview via the video screen built into the faceplate for instant recognition of the caller currently connected to that system, with tally support to indicate whether the caller is live or on standby—quick and easy verification of which TalkShow system is on air in a multi-system installation.
Professional Audio Tools
Incoming and outgoing audio signals are fully configurable, with gain control, compressor/limiter, and 7-band equalizer on inputs and outputs to enhance sound quality, adjust levels for consistency, and prevent clipping or overdriving. TalkShow also includes VU meter displays that are configurable in all common professional audio scales, including dBFS, dBU, and dBVU, for accurate, real-time audio monitoring.
Minimal Latency
TalkShow is optimized to provide the lowest latency when integrated into and genlocked within broadcast environments.
Post Show

Record and re-use
TalkShow enables full-bandwidth recording of any call onto external USB 3.0 or SAN storage with the click of a button—so you can capture the call while it’s happening, and use it in a later broadcast or a whole new program. Calls are saved as distinct QuickTime files that work with every major non-linear editor and all other NewTek systems for archive, postproduction, and playback.
Better audio for post
TalkShow allows for the input audio to pass through to the back channels on output, so that calls captured using the built-in call recording (or recorded externally) will include the audio from both the remote caller and the return signal in separated channels within a single file for subsequent use. All TalkShow audio is processed in floating point at 96kHz.
System Restore
TalkShow has a comprehensive restore function that allows the operator to undo system changes by returning to the factory default settings at any time.
