An Expert Evaluates What the NewTek IP Series Means for Broadcast Production

September 06, 2016 by Chuck Baker

David Shapton of RedShark News reckons that ”NewTek’s software-driven, infinitely expandable approach to switching, input, and output of video sources over IP (and SDI) represents an Uber-level game changer for the industry.”

Shapton gives an overview of the physical elements of the new production ecosystem, and of some of the key capabilities in these modules.

“With this system, you could build an entire, multi-studio live production facility with fibre at its core, and almost never have to pay for re-wiring again: not project to project, nor year to year. And the massive advantage is that every source, every destination, and every processing unit, is available anywhere, at any time.

It’s all a question of what you’re used to. NewTek’s entire history has been centred on live digital video. Video on computers and video on networks. It has been working in the IP video domain for over a decade. The TriCaster has existed in various forms for twelve years.  It all comes naturally to the company, so while the new IP Series is a big leap for the rest of us, it’s a comfortable progression for NewTek.”

“…What NewTek has done here is jump into a new paradigm, and it’s done it in an almost painless way. The IP series includes complete backwards compatibility with the world of SDI, even bringing network flexibility to “traditional” video devices through the IP system input and output modules. What it has also done is transformed IP video from being little more than a curiosity to a practical technology that is absolutely compelling for new studios.”
