SAN ANTONIO, USA – February 25, 2013 – NewTek announces today that it will be the exclusive streaming partner with GrupoZ for The Viña del Mar International Song Festival, one of the largest music festivals in Latin America.
The festival runs February 24th through March 1st in Viña del Mar, Chile. This year’s lineup includes performances by Elton John, The Jonas Brothers, Latin rock group Mana, and Bachata singer Romeo.
"TriCaster is the #1 multi-camera video production system in the market and we have been working with it for quite some time," said Christian Avalos with GrupoZ. "We are even more excited to be expanding our event coverage at the festival this year by bringing in a TriCaster 8000 and a 3Play 425 for live streaming."
Ciro Hinojosa, a well-known 3D artist from Monterey Mexico, used NewTek's breakthrough Virtual Set Editor (VSE) software, to build and customize the festival’s network-style virtual sets and double-box effects.
"Ciro has already designed a number of virtual sets on TriCaster for numerous TV stations all across Latin America, including a set for the past London Olympics for a station in Venezuela," said Ralph Messana, Director of Latin American Sales at NewTek. "These custom sets combined with the seamless stream of TriCaster will
make an amazing show. It is definitely a must see."
