Before you scratch your head with disbelief asking “Why would you compare two products that differ in price by 900%?”, this post hopes to shed some sanity on this question with the top 10 and more features comparisons.
In a world where technology can offer amazing functionality for very little cost, it’s difficult to know if you’ve found a shockingly good value or maybe over spending. The comparison between NewTek’s latest TriCaster Elite TC2 and BlackMagic ATEM Television Studio Pro 4K is one example of this “true value” phenomenon.
The chart below does not try to draw a clear winner between these two video switchers. As you read through the features (a very paired down list), keep in mind that today’s live video production in the midst of a pandemic may look very different (hopefully) months or years down the road.
True value is a subjective measure based on your personal workflow and project needs. EAR has over 40 years of broadcast and live production expertise and we’d be happy to help you sort through details and find the best choice for your company, personal or organization’s needs.
