Additional dedicated video outputs make it possible to connect monitors or projection devices to TriCaster for a variety of purposes including program output for IMAG (Image Magnification) installations or flexible monitoring for the convenience of the operator.  

1. TriCaster’s external Multiview output is supplied by a connector located near the main Interface monitor connector (RU models) or a neighboring HDMI port (2RU models). Again, connect a suitable monitor or display device. The new device should be recognized and enabled by the system automatically.

The Multiview output offers a variety of optional monitoring layouts that can be selected at any time in TriCaster’s Live Desktop.

2. Some TriCaster models also provide an additional, assignable video output on a labeled HDMI connector.  Simply connect a suitable external monitor or device to the connector on the backplane.

3. Stream and Network both require only a network connection.

4. Two special outputs are labeled Display (numbered [5] and [6] on 4RU TriCaster’s backplate). These ports can serve projectors or similar large display systems, though of course they can be used for other purposes too.
Note: A mismatch of output format and connection type is possible at times.  For example, a Graphics player can display imagery that does not correspond to the current output resolution or is not supported by the selected connection type. TriCaster will attempt to display the output despite mismatches, but may not always succeed.
