NewTek is releasing the NC2 Studio Input/Output Module, which supports 12G-SDI and 10 Gigabit Ethernet connections, and unites traditional SDI equipment and infrastructure with the flexibility of IP networks.
The module offers up to eight channels of input/output, including media file playback and recording in a one RU chassis – all underpinned by its connectivity with NDI 5.
It connects multiple video and audio formats, including NDI, SDI, and other IP formats. The NC2 Studio I/O Module also provides a unified interface including selectable multi-viewers and professional video scopes. According to NewTek this offers users greater control of their signals through built-in precision colour correction.
The module can also interconnect video signals with a complement of audio formats, creating adaptable workflows through Dante, AES-67, and ASIO/WDM software audio drivers. Management of each channel can be harnessed locally through integrated NDI KVM technology, or a web-based API.
“Connectivity is a central function of any production and we’ve witnessed an increased demand from customers looking to use 12G-SDI based devices in combination with NDI based infrastructure,” said Will Waters, head of product management at NewTek. “To meet this need the NC2 Studio I/O Module gives producers and broadcasters tremendous power in managing their signals. The increased bandwidth capabilities of both SDI and network components combined with NDI makes the NC2 Studio I/O Module the perfect vehicle to integrate many source types to the flexibility of IP video production.”
