NewTek & Vizrt Bring Real-Time 3D Graphics to 4K UHD IP Workflows
April 24, 2017 by Chuck Baker
NewTek has announced the release of the NVG1 – NewTek-Vizrt IP Graphics Server, a real-time 4K-capable 3D graphics system designed for deep integration with the NewTek IP Series and the new TriCaster® TC1 video production systems. The NVG1 combines a powerful NewTek 1RU server platform and NDI® IP video connectivity with industry-leading Viz Trio/Viz Engine software to provide users with best-of-breed live graphics inside of NewTek’s end-to-end IP-native video workflows.
The NVG1 streamlines graphics operations by using NewTek’s NDI (Network Device Interface) IP video standard to bi-directionally transfer video, audio, key, control and metadata on a single network cable over existing GigE infrastructures. The slim 1RU chassis and front panel design is the perfect companion to NewTek IP Series, TriCaster TC1, and NewTek Connect conversion products.
Available in either single or dual-channel configurations, the NVG1 can output in resolutions and frame rates up to 2160p60. The system will also ship with user customizable graphics packages for news and sports from New York-based broadcast design house, Polygon Labs www.polygonlabs.us. Customized graphics packages are also available from NewTek professional services working in conjunction with the design team at Polygon Labs.
A demonstration of the NewTek-Vizrt integration will be on display at NewTek Booth #SL5016 during NAB 2017 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, April 24-27, 2017.
