Tally lights are important tools in a broadcast studio. Ever been in a professional studio that did not have tally lights for all of the cameras? If the professionals think it’s important, it should be high on the list of “must haves” for all studios. So it’s a must have, but how do you do it? Most studios use portable cameras as their studio cameras and they have no true built-in tally light.

Tally-Lights, LLC has created a cost-effective solution that will work with most commercially available switchers including the NewTek TriCaster line. It’s an innovative system that can be wireless or wired for ease of installation. All of our products are fully guaranteed for life.

Tally Lights 

So you have this fancy Tricaster or video switcher with all the bells and whistles, except one very important “bell".

How does your talent know which camera to look at when doing a live production in your studio?

A very common problem is that there is no tally light system for the cameras. A tally light system is usually an afterthought for the smaller, non-network broadcast studio because there is no cost-effective or workable solution.

Our Standard Tally Lights

Each individual standard Tally Light unit comes ready to plug in and use. There are 7 LED lights on each unit; 6 of the LED’s face the talent and the 7th faces the camera operator to notify the operator when the camera is live. To fine tune the Tally Light unit for different shooting environments, a control knob adjusts the brightness of the 6 forward facing LED's from full brightness down to off. The camera operator LED will always remain on, even when the other Tally Lights are turned off.

This standard Tally Light unit can be interfaced with the Tally Light Controller also available at Tally-Lights.com, or it can be directly interfaced into NewTek TriCasterTM units which have tally ports.


Wireless Tally Controllers

The Wireless Tally Controller enables you to have a tally light on a mobile or studio camera without a tally light cable to the Tally controller. This allows the camera operator and talent to know when that camera is live on a mobile or studio unit.

There are 2 Transmitter units available, a 4 camera input (T-4) and an 8 camera input (T-8).

This adapter works directly with our Tally Controllers and Tally Lights system.

Just plug the transmitter cable (50ft length) into our controller and the receiver cable (6ft length) into our tally light, turn it on and you have approximatly 1000ft of wireless range.

On a NewTek Tricaster (execpt the PRO) all you need is a wireless transmitter, receiver and tally light to make it work.

The transmitter is powered by a 110v plugin or a USB port (if available) on one cable.


Wired Tally Light Controllers

The Tally Controller enables the tally light port on most switchers to operate the Individual Tally Lights from Tally-Lights LLC ( Note: The Individual Tally Lights are sold separately.) or a CCU. Up to eight camera tally lights can be controlled from this newly designed unit.

The new USB controller is easy to install with no jumpers to change. Install the set-up file from the supplied flash drive, then plug the controller into most switchers USB port. This controller also provides PREVIEW to the camera operator as well as PROGRAM.
