DVBControl, a leading developer of IP Video monitoring software for the professional TV broadcast markets, today announced its adoption of NewTek’s open Network Device Interface(NDI™) standard for IP-based production workflows with its NDI™ Mosaic™ multiviewer system. With NDI enabled, NDI™ Mosaic will be able to view all of the sources from other NDI-enabled devices and systems connected to a standard Ethernet local area network, exponentially increasing the number of video sources available to view for live production.
DVBControl will be at NAB booth SU10521.
NDI™ Mosaic is a Real-Time Multiviewer for monitoring all of your NDI video feeds. NDI™ Mosaic includes monitoring of any local or remote NDI device, with NDI source name (UMD), tally, Freeze/Black/Silence alarms, two audio channels per source, plus logos and clocks. Monitor your cameras, production switchers, graphics devices, media servers—any NDI-enabled device on the network—in one location with NDI™ Mosaic, allowing more sources than ever before to be used for your live productions.
This new standard for live production IP workflow is bi-directional and backwards compatible with a large number of devices from top manufacturers already utilizing NewTek’s open protocol allowing IP connectivity between devices. NDI™ Mosaic will be part of the NewTek Developer Network of connected IP devices, the industry’s largest ecosystem of IP-enabled products using the same standard.
“When we saw the NewTek NDI standard - we could not believe it was possible to make such a simple and powerful IP video network, only with existing equipment! We have been designing IP video monitoring software for over 10 years, and our NDI™ Mosaic is the first of many NDI based products we have in mind for this astounding IP video breakthrough.” - Tjerk Tigchelaar, Sales Manager, DVBControl
“We are confident that IP workflows will revolutionize video production,” said Michael Kornet, executive vice president of Business Development for NewTek. “DVBControl is a recognized leader in professional IP video monitoring within the industry. By DVBControl enthusiastically embracing NDI with their NDI™ Mosaic, it is now possible to monitor the virtually limitless number of NDI sources with a single multiviewer system. Best-of-breed products like NDI™ Mosaic will help make NDI the most widely adopted IP standard on the market .”
NDI is now available as a royalty free software developer kit (SDK) for any company looking to establish IP workflows within their organization, or in production tools and systems they manufacture.
