Osprey Video Announces Integration with NewTek NDI® Technology
June 07, 2017 by Chuck Baker
Osprey Video, a renowned leader in premium video-capture and mission-critical video-delivery technologies, has announced a technology collaboration with NewTek whereby all of Osprey’s current capture cards support NDI®, NewTek’s innovative technology that enables interconnected, software-driven production workflows and is compatible with SDI and IP-based technologies and standards. The integration means all Osprey cards will be recognizable as a source by other NDI-enabled applications and devices connected to a standard Ethernet local area network. As a result, broadcasters and production companies using Osprey cards and NDI video-production software on their networks can start producing video over IP immediately.
In an interconnected production environment, NDI makes it possible to connect any device to any other device, and every source is also a destination. Rather than just sending a one-way IP-based signal to a switcher, NDI is a bidirectional standard that enables facilities to share video and audio over IP by sending and receiving multiple input and output signals between devices on a network. NDI works independently of changing specifications and formats and will also support integration with ASPEN, SMPTE 2022, and other emerging standards including SMPTE 2110. By ensuring its capture cards work with the NDI standard, Osprey Video has made it easier for its customers to forge software-driven workflows that accommodate both SDI and IP. “Buying a facility full of new equipment is not an option for most media companies, so as IP video-transport takes hold in the industry, people are looking for ways to make the transition to IP using the equipment they already have. That capability is one of NewTek NDI’s many strengths,” said Roger Bieri, CEO of Osprey Video. “This collaboration means our capture-card customers that rely on NDI technology will be able to use more devices and applications in their workflows, which translates to nearly unlimited possibilities for video production, especially as they mix SDI and IP on the same network.”
