OutputPDX, an online program highlighting business, creativity and the entrepreneurial spirit in Portland, OR, has simplified its workflow and reduced total production time per episode by as much as 50% by adding NewBlue’s Titler Live Broadcast on-air live graphics software to its NewTek TriCaster Mini-based video production workflow.
“It’s more than the old adage “time is money,” according to Chris Hertzog, OutputPDX’s producer and director. “We’ve been using Titler Live for more than a few months, and we’re certainly seeing substantial time savings. But more than that, it’s also opening up new creative avenues for us that we are really just beginning to tap into.”
Built around NewTek’s TriCaster Mini 16-channel, 4-camera video switcher, OutputPDX broadcasts its programming from its downtown studio with a 3-camera setup. Said Hertzog, “We prefer to edit our programs in real time and the Mini affords us that luxury.”
The addition of NewBlue’s Titler Live Broadcast provides an ideal solution for opening graphics, credits and titles, allows the adding and editing of titles in real time, which gives the OutputPDX team a nearly finished product immediately after filming.
“The OutputPDX production team’s learning curve for NewBlue has been relatively straightforward, with the initial migration taking only minutes, which was followed by a 30-minute tutorial that broke down all the basics. “It’s very easy to learn; the interface is intuitive with controls that seem very familiar. There are templates that are great for beginners, yet easy to modify for next-level productions. They’ve been a tremendous time-saver.”
