Try looking at the for.a and Panasonic stuff. Both probably will cost more than a basic tricaster but are going to be more reliable and depending on the model have features like built in streaming and recording.
Unless you plan on starting from scratch it might help to identify any existing source and destination devices and the signal types involved. I believe the TriCaster STUDIO is an SD device with component/S-Video/composite inputs and outputs along with one "iVGA" network input and four audio inputs. So something like the ATEM, which supports only HDMI and HD/SD-SDI, may not be compatible with any of the other existing system components. However, that does seem to bring up whether you want to invest in a new SD switcher or want to consider something that can handle you current SD equipment but also support HD. By "live broadcasting" do you mean the ability to record and have a simultaneous live video output or are you referring to the live network streaming capability?
Really feeling for my church's video guy. He's been using Tricaster for a while now to do all of the church's video and he hates it. The program just isn't very reliable, and the quality isn't anything to write home about.We're not really sure what's out there that isn't a lot more expensive than Tricaster, though.We don't need an all-in-one solution like Tricaster. We're not at all against having separate components for each, but we need a system that can fulfill all of our needs (video/camera switching, recording, and playback) for around the same price as Tricaster, or a little more if necessary.For those curious, the model we're using is the Tricaster Studio. Must be a slightly older model, because ours didn't come with built-in live broadcasting like the current Tricaster Studio comes with. Live broadcasting is something else we'd really like to do if we could.
I have a TriCaster unit at work that we use all the time and we've never had any problems with it. We use it strictly as a switcher and recorder. Any video editing that we do we us Premiere on a separate computer and then import the finished video into the Live program on the TriCaster. All I'm saying is that you will have trouble beating the price. I think their units have gotten much more reliable since the one that you are using was released. Like someone else said don't install anything else on the machine though.
