Designed for use specifically with the NewTek TriCaster XD series the TLC-8d controller is an adapter box that connects to the TriCaster’s ( 860, 850, 855, 460, 450, 455, 410 models only) 15 pin tally port and interfaces to our tally lights.
The TriCaster’s tally port supports a ‘program’ tally for the source selected on the program bus of the switcher. The TLC-8d translates this signal to illuminate the red camera operator tally and the ‘talent’ tally on the TL-2 light. The talent tallys can be globally disabled via a jumper in the TLC-8d.
For CCU users the Metasetz TLC-8d can be interfaced with CCUs that require ‘Dry’ contact closure using an RU-2 relay unit for each CCU.
What sets the Metasetz TLC-8d apart from a simple adapter cable is the intercom pass through so you can run both tally and intercom on a single Cat5 cable run. Connect your intercom base station into the XLR on the TLC-8d then connect your beltpacks to the multi-purpose port on the tally lights with the proper adapter cable.
The Metasetz TLC-8d is also upgradeable to full microprocessor functionality like the TLC-8S and provide additional features like preview tally and GPI I/O.
The Metasetz TLC-8d ships with a 6 foot 15 pin tally cable and a 6 foot USB cable (for power).
The TL-2 is a standard tally light and it is directly compatible with any metaSETZ tally
