Magewell Adds Cost-Saving Encode-Only HDMI- and SDI-to-NDI® Converters
May 09, 2019 by Chuck Baker
Magewell has expanded its Pro Convert line with two simplified encoder-only models that convert HDMI and SDI to NDI®, royalty free IP technology for bidirectional transport of video, audio and data over standard networks. These new models offer a significant cost savings to producers who do not need the additional features of the higher-end Pro Convert Models, which include signal loopthrough and switchable encoding/decoding modes.
NDI, a brand of Vizrt Group, is the leading standard for video-over-IP, now integrated in thousands of products in the hands of millions of users. NDI encodes far in excess of real-time for virtually any resolution and transports video at very high quality and very low latency. With support for customizable metadata for developers, control and communications support, resolution and format independence, the ability to work in standard networks and gain advantages in enhanced networks, NDI is a future proof IP solution for every level of the content production industry and any content production tool manufacturer.
