DIMENSIONS AND MOUNTING

 

It’s important when planning your installation to provide adequate support for the unit’s weight, and pay particular attention to providing room for both cable access and adequate ventilation. This section provides physical dimensions and recommendations intended to inform and guide you when mounting TriCaster systems and related control surfaces.

Section 21.10 TriCaster Mini and Mini SDI

TriCaster Mini models are highly compact and portable.  Of course, like any complex electronic device, it is wise to protect it against accidental damage, including dropping or falling, as well as static discharges.

The unit weighs 9 lbs. (4.1 kg).  Passing HDMI cables through the removable ‘handle’ provides extra strain relief and security, but it’s wise to ensure cabling is routed in the room to avoid creating a trip-hazard even so – especially in desktop installations. 

Free airflow at TriCaster Mini’s vented side panels is also important for system cooling.

 

Section 21.11 TriCaster 460 and 410

TriCaster 460 and 410 both ship in 2 Rack Unit (RU) enclosures supplied with ‘ears’ designed to permit mounting in standard 19” rack architecture (Figure 305).    

The units weigh nearly 25 pounds (>11 KG).  A shelf or rear support will distribute the load more evenly if rack-mounted.  Good front and rear access is important for convenience in cabling, access to removable drive bays (TriCaster 460).  In view of the top panel vents on 2RU models, at least one RU should be allowed above these systems for ventilation and cooling.

 

Section 21.12 TriCaster 8000 and 860

TriCaster 8000 and TriCaster 860 are encased in similar 4 Rack Unit (RU) chassis supplied with ‘ears’ designed to permit mounting in standard 19” rack architecture (Figure 306).   

As these units weigh in at about 40 pounds (>18 KG), we strongly encourage you to provide a shelf or rear support to distribute the load more evenly if rack-mounting is planned.

Good front and rear access is important for convenience in cabling, access to removable drive bays, and should be considered mandatory for ventilation and cooling.

 

 

Section 21.13 TriCaster 8000 CS

Normally, the 8000 CS is used in a table-top configuration.  Otherwise, the ½” (1.2 cm) rabbet provided at the front and back of the panel (only) permits you to embed the base in a cutout prepared for the purpose.

If you plan to mount the surface in the latter manner, take care that the thickness of the supporting material does not block access to the AC power connection and USB port at rear left on the control surface body.

Section 21.14 TriCaster 860 CS

Normally, the 860 CS is used in a table-top configuration.  Otherwise, a rabbet on all four sides permits you to embed the base in a cutout prepared for the purpose.

 

At the sides, a ½” (1.2 cm) ledge is formed for this purpose.  The overlap provided front and back is narrower, about 5/16” (.31 cm).

 

 

Section 21.15 TriCaster 460 CS

Normally, the 460 CS is used in a table-top configuration.  Otherwise, a rabbet on all four sides permits you to embed the base in a cutout prepared for the purpose. 

 

At the sides, a ½” (1.2 cm) ledge is formed for this purpose.  The overlap provided front and back is narrower, about 5/16” (.31 cm).
