The following chart shows, on a by-device basis, which features are automatically included and which are only available via an active Premium Access subscription.
- ‘PA’ indicates that a Premium Access license is required on the system to provide this feature.
- ‘Included’ indicates that this feature is available with no additional license required.
- If Premium Access expires on a system, the feature will disappear, but the session will continue to be usable (minus any PA feature it was addressing).
Though some features have been included as standard functions in all TriCaster systems, they are listed in this document nonetheless since, on older software versions, they may not be available unless the Premium Access license is active.
Each feature is briefly listed below in function and with an image of where you will find this feature in the user interface.
