NDI-compatible Bluefish444 SDI Cards Send and Receive Video and Audio over IP to Support Interconnected Production Workflows
Bluefish444, manufacturer, developer and marketer of the highest quality uncompressed 4K/2K/HD/SD SDI video cards in the professional video industry, today announced Network Device Interface (NDI™) integration with SDI video cards.
NDI, an enabling technology for IP live production workflows, allows multiple video systems to identify and communicate with one another over IP, and to encode, transmit and receive many streams of high quality, low latency, frame-accurate video and audio in real time. This benefits any network-connected video device or application, including video mixers, graphics systems, capture cards, and many other products. NDI is already the most prolific IP video transfer method in the production market, with over a million customers that have NDI enabled solutions from hundreds of companies that are working with NewTek on IP product integrations and delivering NDI commercial products.
Bluefish444’s collaboration with NewTek enables their SDI I/O video cards to send and receive video and audio over IP via NewTek’s NDI, allowing existing Bluefish444 installations globally to implement interconnected production workflows comprised of SDI and IP-based technologies.
“NewTek is quickly driving the adoption of IP production workflows via their bi-directional, multi-channel, low-latency NDI protocol”
“Bluefish444 is pleased to be working with NewTek to give our installed customers access to NDI via NewTek Connect Pro and NDI Connect software.”
Tom Lithgow, Product Manager, Bluefish444
“We are confident that IP workflows will revolutionize video production,”
“Bluefish444 is highly respected both at NewTek and within the industry. Bluefish444’s capture card integration with NewTek’s NDI will help make this the most widely adopted IP standard in the market.”
Michael Kornet, Executive Vice President of Business Development, NewTek
