BirdDog have reimagined, reinvented, reworked, and redefined Audio Comms. By harnessing the true power of NDI, BirdDog have made the world’s first Audio Intercom system with live video windows.

Now you can see live the camera feeds and arrange all your Comms on a simple Windows 10 computer meaning you can even use a touchscreen enabled device for true interactivity. Supports Push to Talk and Grouping and the best part is it is totally FREE with any BirdDog Studio NDI or BirdDog Mini until September 30, 2018!

Announcing BirdDog Central

One app to rule them all.

BirdDog Central is the fastest and most convenient way to get content to TV’s and screens ever. Simply attach BirdDog Mini or Studio NDI to your screen, plug it into a PoE switch, HDMI into the screen and you can play content to that screen from any BirdDog encoder using BirdDog Link. You can also use the BirdDog media player to play out any video file on your computer.

NewTek NDI PTZ Camera & Connect Spark product image

NewTek NDI PTZ & Spark now available in Australia

Tags : 

The NewTek NDI enabled PTZ Cameras and Connect Spark are now available in Australia from OnAir Solutions. Both items caused quite a buzz at IBC in September and until now were only available from international websites.

Network Device Interface (NDI®) simplifies video setups by allowing you to connect, capture, and control with a single network cable. There’s no need for extra connections, cables, and complex wiring. Better still, NDI provides broadcast quality on standard gigabit networks found all over the world.

The number of NDI devices has exploded in the past couple of years, making it the standard format for video-over-IP in lots of events and productions. The developer community is very active, and OnAir Solutions has recently joined (more on that in coming months).

For more information see our NewTek page or call us for a demo. We expect to have our own unit to fire up in our Sydney demo studio very soon.


Stock has just arrived in Australia, so you can buy now from our online store

NewTek PTZ Camera at a glance

The NewTek NDI PTZ camera has native support for HD resolutions up to 1080p 60. Outputs are to HDMI, 3G-SDI and of course NDI over IP. PoE+ power means you can easily deploy the camera anywhere where network cabling is available, without having to worry about extra power bricks. 20x optical zoom is perfect for most types of rooms, and the full pan-tilt-zoom capability means you have many choices for locations and mounting. Control is available via the web interface, NDI and RS-422.

Full specs from NewTek.


NewTek Connect Spark at a glance

Connect Spark lets you connect your camera or other video output to, and have them instantly available as sources for other NDI® compatible systems and software on your network. Spark uses your wifi network, so the camera doesn’t need to be anywhere near a network outlet. Perfect for ad-hoc events and hard-to-reach places. If you have ethernet available, you can still use a cable of course. There’s 3G-SDI and HDMI versions available, to suit almost any type of video camera.  Spark has native support for HD resolutions up to 1080p 60 and can record directly to SD or USB cards.

Full specs from NewTek.

More about NDI

NDI is in use on millions of devices and allows multiple video systems to identify and communicate with one another over IP. NDI can 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, including video mixers, graphics systems, capture cards, and many other production devices. This makes it possible to exponentially increase the number of sources available for live production switching, without directly attaching to devices, changing locations, or investing in expensive, high-bandwidth networks that simply replace SDI-based workflows.
