This topic can be very confusing to a lot of people. If you’re just starting out in the industry and looking to purchase new equipment, you might think that when it comes to picking up a camera, you can just check out what is on sale at Best Buy, and you’ll be all set to go. Unfortunately, it’s not that simple.

The once well-defined lines separating video production from post-production have blurred, creating a situation in which tools central to successful live production are being integrated with technology more often associated with the post realm.

As a result, technical directors, editors, graphics specialists, replay operators and others are seeking solutions that more tightly integrate technologies to meet their real-world workflow demands than fall into some neat, well-defined category within a theoretical video universe that doesn’t exist today.

One prime example is the interplay between network-attached storage and the NewTek multi-camera HD/SD video production platforms. With TriCaster integrated into a video production or post ecosystem by way of an Ethernet connection and shared storage, anyone running the TriCaster has immediate access to a potentially unlimited number of media assets, including video clips, animations, audio and graphics, directly from the TriCaster control surface.
