NAB 2018: Marshall To Advances Software-Driven Work With NewTek NDI
Joining the IP ecosystem of products and the rapidly expanding number of companies enabling IP-based customer workflows, Marshall Electronics’ new CV620-NDI high-definition PTZ camera is now equipped with NewTek NDI and is recognizable as a source by other NDI-enabled applications and devices connected to a standard Ethernet local area network.
“Adding the NDI component to our CV620 IP camera is a wonderful opportunity to make IP easier to use,” says Tod Musgrave, director of cameras at Marshall. “The team at NewTek is fantastic and we’re really excited to see the CV620-NDI supporting software-driven IP workflows using NewTek NDI globally.”
Marshall’s new CV620-NDI utilizes the same tri-synchronous pan-tilt-zoom control as Marshall PTZ cameras, while adding improved video performance and multi-level fine tune adjustments. Adding NewTek’s NDI capability enables this camera to be easily integrated, controlled and managed using a range of NDI-enabled equipment. Installers and users will be able to discover the CV620-NDI camera effortlessly and use the tools that NDI enables for seamless IP workflows.
“Software-driven IP workflows are quickly becoming ubiquitous in video production,” says Michael Kornet, executive vice president and general manager of NDI for NewTek. “NDI-enabled devices like the CV620-NDI exponentially increase the video sources available for live production, creating efficiencies and opportunities for customers that previously did not exist. NDI is the dominant IP technology on the market, as shown by the millions of customers with access to it today.”
NewTek’s royalty-free NDI technology allows video and audio sources to be shared bi-directionally across a network, eliminating the need for costly direct connections, expensive cable runs and infrastructure upgrades while turning every source into a destination instantly available anywhere on the network.
