NewTek Introduces Advances With VT[4] LIVE! Integrated Production Suite For Live Production, Streaming, Editing and Integration (7/10/2004)

NewTek, Inc., manufacturer of award winning 3D animation and video products, today announced the release of VT[4] LIVE!(tm), an integrated production suite that provides a comprehensive toolset for all professional SD video production needs. VT[4] LIVE! offers the most powerful computer-based live production capabilities, able to handle anything from switching and titling for network broadcast to serverless web streaming at the touch of a button. VT[4] LIVE! provides real-time layering and effects for video and graphics in virtually any input standard or file format, operates internally in uncompressed D1 component video, and includes super-scaling technology to provide super-sharp images when video is scaled for picture-in-picture or real-time DVEs. NewTek's VT[4] LIVE! includes integrated timeline and storyboard editing with animated titling, paint, 3D modeling and animation, keying, and much, much more.

"NewTek pioneered the concept of the Integrated Production Suite and with the release of the VT[4] LIVE!, we have once again raised the bar for ease of use, speed and affordability." said Philip Nelson, NewTek's Senior Director - Video Marketing. "This is the most comprehensive upgrade that we have ever released for our Windows based system adding in groundbreaking features such as PowerPoint support allowing you to integrate PowerPoint presentations into your live production, one button streaming with VT-Stream(tm), compositor quality scaling and VT-Edit(tm), the fastest editor on the market."

"VT[4] LIVE! is the most practical, user-friendly video suite on the market," said Paul Congo, Executive Director of Access Monterey Peninsula. "The fact that a single operator can have such power at his fingertips continues to amaze me. From broadcasting multi-camera live-switched events to one man productions, VT[4] LIVE!'s flexibility is unbeatable. The price point also makes it wonderful for public access. With budget cycles sometimes years apart, VT[4] LIVE!'s affordability makes it possible to purchase multiple systems for use in training, remote locations, and in studio."

"The quality in VT[4](tm) when scaling and transforming images and video really blows my mind," said Peter Karlsson, Founder, CG Sweden. "Looks even better than what you get out from a Flame8 system, and that isn't bad!"
