The Metasetz TLC-8S is a controller tally box for the NewTek TriCaster. It is compatible with all current High Def TriCasters including the TriCaster 40. It connects to your TriCaster via USB and to the tally light via Ethernet style cable.
The Metasetz TLC-8S has eight tally output channels and supports Program, Preview and Talent tally. These channels can be assigned to any TriCaster input; you aren’t limited to just the camera inputs. Now you are free to assign a tally to the DDR, media player or network inputs.
The Talent tally is tied to the program tally but can be globally disabled via software.
There are also two GPI outputs that each can also be assigned to fire with any input. Now control external hardware with your TriCaster.
For CCU users the Metasetz TLC-8S tally can be interfaced with CCUs that require ‘Dry’ contact closure using an RU-2 relay unit for each CCU.
Another thing that sets the TLC-8S 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-8S then connect your beltpacks to the multi-purpose port on the tally lights with the proper adapter cable.
An upgrade is available for the Metasetz TLC-8d to add all the new functionality. Contact us for details on the upgrade process.
TLC-8S ships with a 6 foot USB cable .
The TL-2 is a standard tally light and it is directly compatible with any metaSETZ tally
