TriCaster can include screens from networked computers running NewTek’s iVGA™ client software, network output from applications such as LiveText™, or Apple® Airplay® media in your live productions.

4. Right-click on the My Computer icon, and select Properties.

5. Scroll down in the right hand pane of the System panel that opens to find the Computer name, domain and workgroups settings.

6. Click Change Setting.

7. Click the Computer Name tab of the System Properties panel that opens.

8. Click the Change button, and enter the name of your local workgroup (as provided by your system administrator).

9. Close the OK button.

10. Close the System control panel.
