TalkShow Skype Video Calling System

VS-4000 Superior multi-caller conversations

The idea behind designing TalkShow VS-4000 was to avoid any issues associated to running normal Skype software on consumer computers. You would prevent any IT related problems such as software crashing/freezing or interruptions from other calls.

Calls can be sent across the network from TalkShow to any IP-ready input in TriCaster®, 3Play™, or other NDI®-enabled receiving device.

IP networking

Receive video calls over IP anywhere on your network. Built-in NewTek NDI technology allows routing of Skype video calls to any compatible NDI receiving device (including TriCaster® and 3Play™) while enabling selection of any NDI video source for return to caller over the network.

Advanced Audio

VS-100 Delivers conversations that sound more professional. You can independently adjust incoming and outgoing audio signals for the highest-quality sound, with the only single-channel video calling system that offers built-in gain control, graphic equalizer, and compressor/limiter.

Features of VS-4000

  • 4-in, 4-out video calling system
  • Compact 1U rack-mount frame
  • Premium production, video, and audio controls
