SAN ANTONIO, TX—NewTek, the leader in IP-based video technology and part of the Vizrt Group, has announced the NewTek NC2 Studio Input/Output Module, delivering connectivity solutions for media production professionals and broadcasters alike.
Supporting 12G-SDI and 10 Gigabit Ethernet connections, the NC2 Studio I/O Module breaks down barriers to visual storytelling by uniting traditional SDI equipment and infrastructure with the flexibility of IP networks. The turnkey design of the NC2 Studio I/O Module offers up to 8 channels of dynamic I/O including media file playback and recording in a 1 RU chassis - all underpinned by its connectivity with the revolutionary NDI 5.
The all-new module is far more than the conversion of source types, as it connects multiple video and audio formats including NDI, SDI, and other IP formats. The NC2 Studio I/O Module also provides a unified interface including selectable multi-viewers, and professional video scopes. This offers users greater control of their signals through built-in precision color correction. The feature set makes the module a perfect drop-in solution for interconnecting video signal types with a complement of audio formats, creating adaptable workflows through Dante, AES-67, and ASIO/WDM software audio drivers. Management of each channel can be harnessed locally, through integrated NDI KVM technology, or a web-based API.
“Connectivity is a central function of any production and we’ve witnessed an increased demand from customers looking to use 12G-SDI based devices in combination with NDI based infrastructure,” said Will Waters, head of product management at NewTek. “To meet this need the NC2 Studio I/O Module gives producers and broadcasters tremendous power in managing their signals. The increased bandwidth capabilities of both SDI and network components combined with NDI makes the NC2 Studio I/O Module the perfect vehicle to integrate many source types to the flexibility of IP video production.”
This new edition offers a module optimized to work with all the latest features of NDI 5. NDI 5 makes it possible, for the first time, to connect to any device, in any location, anywhere in the world. Combined with the NC2 Studio I/O Module, it creates a game-changing future for producers seeking to expand their productions. The union removes the restrictions of productions bound to their physical location by offering efficient, secure, and reliable workflows on a global scale.
NewTek NC2 Studio I/O Module is available now and is priced at $11,995 USMSRP; international pricing may vary.
