Same great cameras, built-in NDI supportPTZOptics is proud to announce four new NDI compatible camera models with built-in NDI, NewTeks industry leading IP technology. The new 12x and 20x NDI camera models will support Power, Control audio and video all over a single Ethernet cable simplifying installation and setup for live streaming systems. With support for HDMI, 3G-SDI and RTSP/RTMP Streaming (H.264, H.265 and MJPEG) this camera is ideal for broadcasting high definition video signals for broadcast or video conferencing applications.
Interconnected Video Production WorkflowsNDI is a paradigm shift that will increase what is possible in all things live video. In this video, we will think outside the box about how to plan out live streaming and video production systems in the world of IP. Using standard networking infrastructure NDI will enable us to do more with less. We will uncover new possibilities for low budget streaming and high-end video productions system alike as we move toward the future of broadcast video over IP.
Low Hanging FruitLets capture some low hanging fruit with the benefits of broadcast IP video and eliminate the need for capture cards in our next live streaming system design. Imagine an entire generation of video engineers who will never use expensive SDI cabling and capture devices. Using NDI we will have access to sources from anywhere on our network. We will no longer be restricted to sources directly connected to a single system. Capture cards are used for low latency video conversion from traditional HDMI or SDI video to USB or PCIe where we can use them with production software such as vMix, Wirecast, Livestream and more. What if we could eliminate the need for capture cards altogether by providing the same quality, low latency video directly to Wirecast, vMix, LiveStream, OBS, or xSplit over the Ethernet connection we are already using.
Add cameras with easeIn one fell swoop, we have eliminated a point of failure from our video production workflow and reduced the cost of implementing a new system dramatically. At the end of the day, we have opened up a whole new universe of possibilities where the network you already have has become the preferred method of video routing. Need another camera shot? Just run a single Cat-5 cable to the PTZOptics NDI camera and you will have high-quality video, camera control and power solved in an instant.
Where the rubber meets the roadThis is where the rubber meets the road, unlike SDI cabling, Ethernet can provide power for cameras using a PoE source, such as a switch, simplifying installation and eliminating the need for additional outlets. And unlike traditional RS-232 control cables, Ethernet can also be used to control our cameras within your favorite video production software or via one of our IP joysticks without requiring direct analog control cabling to each camera.
From the Boardroom to the Production StudioNDI will make your transition to IP video simple. Want to add your PTZOptics camera from the Studio into a GoToMeeting call with your Producer across the world? No problem. Access it from any computer on your network using NDI transmit or the output of your software based video switcher like Wirecast or vMix. Your favorite video production software will become much more powerful with access to all NDI sources on your network. Want to live stream with your Main PC and setup a secondary machine for isolated recordings of each camera? No problem. Download the free NDI IsoCorder app from NewTek and get started.
NewTek NDI ToolsAs you can see, we can start to envision new IP workflows leveraging free and professional IP video tools available from NewTek and 100s of other NDI developers.
