NewTek announced it has completed work with YouTube to ensure the compatibility of TriCaster and 3Play as powerful and affordable tools for sports enterprises of any size to live stream a wide range of competitive events over YouTube’s live sports streaming service. With more than a billion visitors every month, YouTube is playing a growing role as an online distributor of live sports coverage. TriCaster is the industry standard for high quality yet affordable HD multi-camera video production and live streaming. 3Play is a professional slow motion replay server, a must-have for sports broadcasting, available at a fraction of the cost of traditional replay systems. Together they level the playing field for sports producers on YouTube.
Traditionally, high quality live sports productions come with high price tags, requiring a multi-camera TV production truck costing tens of thousands of dollars to rent for a single game. TriCaster and 3Play allow sports entities to enhance the production quality of their shows, whether they are being live streamed or broadcast, without requiring the capital outlay needed to buy traditional video gear, or incurring the operating expense necessary to roll in a TV production truck.
The availability of affordable production tools like TriCaster and 3Play could not have come at a better time for YouTube Sports. A convergence of technologies, economics, and easy-to-use production gear is making it possible for every sport imaginable from local bowling leagues to high school and collegiate athletics programs to major professional sports leagues and TV sports networks to reach audiences, extend their brands and generate revenue online. YouTube is at the forefront of driving the technologies required to live stream content to an array of devices from smart TV’s to smartphones.
