NewTek Product Ecosystem Now Includes 57 Customer Solutions In Graphics, Streaming, Automation & Controllers, Content, Asset Management & Storage
(Las Vegas, Nevada--April 7, 2014) NewTek™ today announced the addition of 22 new customer workflows into the NewTek Developer Network. The rapidly growing program now offers 57 innovative and seamlessly integrated workflows for TriCaster™ and 3Play™ users, extending significant time-and cost-savings efficiencies to anyone using NewTek live production tools.
“Our vision for building an ecosystem around our industry-standard live and sports production systems is simple: create a platform where users benefit through greater choice, capability, quality, ease and value,” said Michael Kornet, executive vice president of Business Development at NewTek. “Since we launched the program, an influx of stellar companies have utilized our SDK and joined the NewTek Developer Network to reach our worldwide customers with their integrated products. The expansion of the program reinforces our vision that building an open ecosystem of developer products is bigger than our product line, it’s ultimately about giving our customers absolutely the best tools in the industry for their needs with ability for them to grow and grow.”
Gerhard Lang, chief engineering officer at Vizrt commented, “We are very excited about integrating Vizrt graphics with TriCaster and expanding the number of broadcasters who have Vizrt’s world-class graphics capabilities at their fingertips. TriCaster is clearly the catalyst of making professional broadcasting accessible to organizations that otherwise could not afford traditional broadcast equipment. Now NewTek customers can add state-of-the-art Vizrt graphics to their workflow with ease.”
New Workflows, New Developers
The NewTek Developer Network, which already includes industry veterans such as AJA, Avid, ChyronHego and NewsMaker includes a wide range of products that work directly with TriCaster and 3Play in several different workflow categories—streaming, graphics, content, automation & controllers, and media asset management & storage.
Jess Hartmann, CEO of ProMAX said, “The combination of NewTek TriCaster and 3Play solutions with a shared storage system like ProMAX Platform allows for virtually unlimited content recording time and greatly improved collaboration for NewTek customers. The ability to directly record multiple streams simultaneously to a Platform Server while at the same time playing back content from that server, open up endless possibilities for dynamic content sharing and collaborativeworkflows that simply did not exist before.”
