More compelling conversations.

Facilitate captivating real-time group conversations, panel discussions, and live interview after live interview with remote guests that enhance the quality and credibility of your program.


Independent Control Interfaces

Easily set up a multi-operator production workflow, with separate interfaces for call and production management. Skype TX Control software can be operated from the TalkShow VS 4000 system or installed on another machine as a standalone call control center, allowing the producer to manage calls and talent, while a production operator handles video and audio.


Group or Queue Callers

Connect with any combination of guests from around the world simultaneously or in sequence, for compelling live conversation, expert analysis, real-time commentary, and in-depth discussion.


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

Deliver conversations that sound more professional. Independently adjust incoming and outgoing audio signals for the highest-quality sound, with the only video calling system that offers built-in gain control, graphic equalizer, compressor/limiter, and noise gate settings.

Pristine Live Video

Ensure your guests look as good as they sound, with enhanced real-time image processing and fully configurable correction tools, including proc amp controls, auto color setting, and white balance—and clean, deinterlaced return video to caller.

Real-Time Call Monitoring

Conduct every call with complete confidence, by utilizing high-quality, full-motion video previews, accurate on-screen audio VU metering, and selectable multi-view display layouts with configurable monitor overlays.
