Virtual Set Editor 2.5 - Feature Support

TriCaster and Virtual Set Editor Bring your Studios to Life

From independent producers to broadcast networks, NewTek’s superb-quality, custom virtual sets are breathing life into virtual studio environments everywhere. With Virtual Set Editor you have twice the power with two licenses.
