NewTek Releases DataLink Real-Time Data Displays

SAN ANTONIO, Texas – October 9, 2008 – NewTek Inc., manufacturer of industry-leading video and 3D animation products, today announced the release of DataLink, a TriCaster and VT[5] plug-in that links data from external feeds, files or databases to display real-time, rapidly-changing information, such as statistics, scored, times and other dynamic information.

“NewTek engineers understand the pressures involved with producing a fast-paced event,” said Dr. Andrew Cross, executive vice president of engineering, NewTek Inc. “By automatically providing accurate real-time information, DataLink reduces stress and enables producers to focus on other key aspects of the event.”

DataLink provides dedicated support for several different brands of existing systems, including Daktronics, IDS, OES, and White Way, and is compatible with any application that supports connection strings, including database servers. (For a complete listing of compatible applications, see www.connectionstrings.com).

DataLink monitors changes made within files, updating the display throughout the live broadcast and preserving all custom text properties, alignment and fonts assigned in the CG template. NewTek provides a free software development kit to give users even more flexibility to customize DataLink to their individual requirements.  

Pricing and Availability

DataLink is available now for US$995. System requirements include: any product from the NewTek TriCaster line, running TriCaster Software Upgrade 2.0 or higher; or a NewTek VT[5] system, version 5.2 or higher; and an open COM port if connecting to external scoreboard hardware.
