Mobile Studios Releases New SparkMount™ Kits for NewTek Connect Spark™ NDI® Converters
September 14, 2018
Just in time for IBC 2018, Mobile Studios has announced two new SparkMount™ accessory kits for NewTek’s Connect Spark™ devices designed to convert SDI or HDMI video into NDI® and deliver to a computer and/or an IP network over WiFi.
The new SparkMount Pro “A/B” and “V” mount kits enable NewTek Connect Sparks to be attached directly to broadcast style cameras equipped with Anton Bauer or V mounts. Installation of the Connect Spark in the SparkMount Pro housing and placement between camera and battery takes about 3 minutes.
The new “Pro” model adds to Mobile Studios’ successful launch of its SparkMount Battery Kit that enables a Connect Spark to be installed on any camera or tripod with power provided by a rechargeable lithium ion battery that can power a Connect Spark up to 15 continuous hours. Battery can either be attached to the bracket via velcro or carried in a custom belt-pack. The SparkMount Battery kit includes an aluminum bracket for the Connect Spark, complete assortment of camera mounting hardware, 12V battery, battery holder, battery charger and SDI / HDMI / DC power cables.
“NewTek’s NDI-based Connect Spark is a real game-changer and we’re delighted to play a part in realizing its full potential for remote video production over WiFi with our new SparkMount Kits,” said Richard Rubin, President of Mobile Studios. “We’re pleased that SparkMount Kits and Connect Sparks are both currently available online at the NewTek store and provide customers with a turnkey solution for camera mounted Connect Spark operation,” added Rubin.
NewTek’s NDI is a royalty free IP technology enabling compatible products to share video, audio, and data across a local area network. Using refined encoding and communication, NDI allows systems, devices and applications to identify and communicate bi-directionally with one another over IP, and to encode, transmit, and receive multiple streams of high quality, low latency, frame-accurate video and audio in real time. Integrated into thousands of products in the hands of millions of users, NDI is the leading standard for IP video production.
