To offer more connectivity solutions for media production professionals and broadcasters, NewTek has announced the NC2 Studio Input/Output Module. Supporting 12G-SDI and 10 Gigabit Ethernet connections, the NC2 Studio I/O Module “breaks down barriers to visual storytelling” by uniting traditional SDI equipment and infrastructure with the flexibility of IP networks, says NewTek.
The turnkey design of the NC2 Studio I/O Module offers up to 8 channels of dynamic I/O, including media file playback and recording in a 1 RU chassis, and is underpinned by its connectivity with the NDI 5 software-defined IP video standard.
Will Waters, Head of Product Management at NewTek, said, “Connectivity is a central function of any production and we’ve witnessed an increased demand from customers looking to use 12G-SDI based devices in combination with NDI based infrastructure.
“To meet this need, the NC2 Studio I/O Module gives producers and broadcasters tremendous power in managing their signals. The increased bandwidth capabilities of both SDI and network components combined with NDI makes the NC2 Studio I/O Module the perfect vehicle to integrate many source types to the flexibility of IP video production.”
The NC2 Studio I/O Module connects multiple video and audio formats, including NDI, SDI and other IP formats. It also provides a unified interface including selectable multi-viewers and professional video scopes, offering users greater control of their signals through built-in precision colour correction.
