Some of the most compelling, sharable moments in a live program take place outside of the studio. Having them makes your production look better, your audience gets greater perspective, and you gain more credibility.
It used to take a lot of coordination, expense, and equipment to capture these conversations live with satellite feeds or microwave relays-or else it took piecing together a homegrown, desktop chat solution that left everyone wondering whether the call would hold up.
Now you can leave the satellite trucks, big budgets and duct tape behind, and be ready for a live shot with anyone-around the world, anytime-directly from your studio or live production.
NewTek TalkShow VS-100 is the studio-grade solution to immediately add live interviews, perspective, credibility, and distinct competitive advantage to your program by easily incorporating 300 million monthly connected Skype users as guest speakers without the expense and effort of a live shot. Any video-enabled Skype user is just a call away.

TalkShow eliminates extraneous field equipment and costs, removing the requirement for a remote ENG client or field unit in order to send a live feed back to the studio; commonly available consumer Skype software is all the guest or remote correspondent requires.
With NewTek TalkShow, Skype video calls are augmented with our renowned image processing system—based on the same powerful graphics engine utilized in our TriCaster and 3Play production solutions—to provide higher-quality video enhancements over common Skype calls.
No additional bolt-on networking appliances are required to route calls into a live program; TalkShow is compatible with any in-house Ethernet network with 1.2 Mbps bandwidth for High Definition calling and plugs directly into any HD-SDI production switcher, giving full control of call, video, and audio to the in-studio operator.
In NewTek TriCaster or 3Play environments, the hardware connection is not even required—calls can be routed from TalkShow into one of the network inputs of TriCaster or 3Play, reserving the SDI connection for other production sources.
Go live to the field or to anyone in the world you can reach online, immediately—with the easiest, highest-quality solution for delivering live video calls in broadcast-ready HD.
