“We have the most downloaded podcast on the web. So, when we wanted expand to include multi-camera video, there was only ONE choice, NewTek's TriCaster,” said Danny Misraje, executive in charge of operations for ACE Broadcasting. “Now, with DIY Network upgrading the studio to HD using TriCaster 850 EXTREME, there is nothing that the big television networks offer that we can’t deliver right here at ACE Broadcasting.”
