Soliton announces NewTek NDI® integration for IBC
September 13, 2017 by Chuck Baker
Mobile cameras for outside broadcast are not typically networked attached and still rely on traditional baseband technology such as HDMI or HD-SDI. By adopting NDI® from NewTek on our receiving platform, we are allowing outside broadcasters to take advantage of IP workflows without the need to change their mobile camera infrastructure. - Mark Andrews, Head of Broadcast for Soliton Systems Europe.
Soliton Systems, the lead manufacturer of H.265 bonded solutions for outside broadcast to live stream video using the 3G or 4G mobile phone cellular network, announces a new integration and support for software-driven IP workflows using NewTek NDI®. Joining the industry’s largest IP ecosystem of products and the rapidly expanding number of companies enabling IP-based customer workflows, Soliton Systems will integrate NDI as part of their mobile live streaming for outside broadcast to be recognizable as a source by other NDI-enabled applications and devices that are connected to a standard Ethernet local area network.
NewTek’s royalty free NDI technology allows video and audio sources plus metadata and communications to be shared bi-directionally across an IP network. This eliminates the need for costly direct connections with expensive cable runs and infrastructure upgrades while turning every source into a destination, making them instantly available anywhere on the network.
Soliton recently announced the new tiny Zao-S H.265 HEVC encoder, part of the Soliton Smart-telecaster range of broadcast products, which enables live video streaming without the need for satellite trucks or expensive RF links. Soliton are further enhancing this with new software features that allow integrated IP-based workflows, including NewTek NDI.
At IBC, Soliton will be displaying the benefits of NDI with NewTek’s TriCaster® multi-camera video production system alongside their Smart-telecaster and cloud solutions. Attendees can see the products at the Soliton stand in Hall 2 on Stand B.11.
