Anyone here using Tricaster?

Anyone here used/using Tricaster? A client has asked me about it. I'm familiar with the concept, but have no working knowledge. I see there are several systems, Tricaster 40, etc. Curious to hear from anyone who uses it, what benefits there are, if any. Feels kinda silly asking... the bulk of my experience is Adobe Premiere Pro and Media Composer. Appreciate any insights.

A tricaster is a control room/studio on your desktop. What used to take racks of equipment now runs on a PC. You have a video switcher, audio mixer, graphics generator, and internet streamer all in one box. http://tc40.newtek.com/index.php/tricaster40training Try this link and it will guide you to through the topics you need Good Luck

Tricaster permits rapid production of episodic television. We shot, finished, and shipped 22 half hour episodes in 5 days. One of its major advantages is being able to use virtual sets. This is where filming is done on a green screen and the set is created within the Tricaster.

Thanks John. (That's some impressive turnaround!)

Here is a link to episode 1 of second season https://www.stage32.com/media/950054489711191272 Tricaster is used to shoot segments then the show is just assemble edited in Premiere Pro (typically about 15 mins to assemble the episode).
