Combining numerous technologies, NewTek is debuting an end-to-end IP system.
That includes the NDI PTZ camera with video, audio, PTZ control, tally and power over one standard Ethernet cable. NewTek is also showing Connect Spark portable NDI converters, devices designed to bring SDI or HDMI video signals into a computer or onto an IP network, either wired or wirelessly, and include tally and direct recording.
The NewTek NDI PTZ camera and Connect Spark devices work with NDI-compatible products including LiveStream Studio, SplitmediaLabs XSplit, Streamstar, OBS Studio, Renewed Vision ProPresenter 6, StudioCoast vMix, Telestream Wirecast and NewTek TriCaster.
NewTek is also showing its TriCaster TC1 and IP Series, which provide switching, streaming, recording in HD, 3G, and 4K UHD 60p on all inputs.
These products use NDI version 3, the third generation of NewTek’s IP video technology standard, which provides new features and performance improvements while maintaining forward and backward compatibility.
Among the enhancements, version 3 supports multicast with forward error correction, a high efficiency mode for wireless or long-distance transmission and PTZ camera control and tally.
To complete the IP workflow, NewTek is demoing MediaDS, a real-time media encoding and live streaming video delivery platform; TalkShow, a multi-channel video calling production system; and its 4K-capable IP Series, a software-driven, modular video production system.
