Vaddio premieres high bandwidth NDI PTZ camera to the industry
Vaddio has added NewTek NDI to its RoboSHOT 30E PTZ Camera, a technology that allows video systems to automatically detect and communicate with one another over IP, enabling video workflows across Ethernet networks.
The RoboSHOT 30E NDI Camera offers a low latency, high performance solution in the NDI ecosystem. The RoboSHOT 30E NDI Camera is a recognizable video source by other NDI-enabled applications and devices connected to a standard local area network. In addition, the camera’s pan/tilt/zoom and other controls can be accessed through NDI, creating a complete IP workflow for operator control.
“By creating an NDI-capable camera based on our RoboSHOT Elite cameras, our customers will have the ability to create complete IP workflows for classrooms, houses of worship, medical simulation labs, and other applications requiring capture and presentation of high quality video content,” said Darrin Thurston, Vice President of Product Development at Vaddio. “NewTek’s NDI technology complements Vaddio’s product philosophy of being simple to install and operate for our customers.”
“The video world has moved to computers, software, and networks. NDI-enabled RoboSHOT 30E cameras are far more powerful and easy to use than ever before because they can now be deployed as an IP camera on a customer’s existing network, without the need for any new infrastructure,” said Michael Kornet, Executive Vice President and General Manager of NDI for NewTek. “This increases the video sources available for live production, creating efficiencies and opportunities for customers that did not previously exist. NDI is the dominant IP video technology in the industry and is in the hands of millions of customers today.”
NewTek’s NDI technology allows video and audio sources to be shared across a network, eliminating the need for costly direct connections, expensive cable runs, and infrastructure upgrades while turning every source into a destination instantly available anywhere on the network.
RoboSHOT Elite Series Cameras, Vaddio’s next generation of professional cameras, are designed with an 1/2.5-type Exmor R CMOS sensor and deliver high-definition video image quality. Cutting-edge image signal processing (ISP) results in better light-gathering capabilities, incredible contrast and sharp 1080p/60 video, even in dim lighting conditions. RoboSHOT Elite cameras are equipped with enhanced wide dynamic range, which can help correct for environments with uneven lighting by making darker or over-bright areas in video more visible and detailed.
