PTZOptics is proud to announce four new NDI compatible camera models with built-in NDI, NewTek's 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 & MJPEG) this camera is ideal for broadcasting high definition video signals for broadcast or video conferencing applications.
Video Connections: HDMI, 3G-SDI & IP Streaming
Field of View: 72.5 degree wide-angle lens
Low Lux: High performance in low illumination situations
Resolution: Full 1920x1080p HD Resolutions up to 60 frames per second
Noise Cancellation: 2D and 3D noise reduction with our latest "low noise CMOS sensor"
IP Streaming GUI: Easy to use Software GUI for PTZ Control and remote viewing
NEW: Open Source IP Control Software
New: Android Camera Control App
Interconnected Video Production Workflows
NDI 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 Fruit
Let's 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 ease
In 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 road
This 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.
