BirdDog Launches NDI 5

Carving out the NDI path from the very beginning, BirdDog is now excited to launch NDI 5!

With this next generation of hardware and software comes many new features:

  • NDI® Bridge: transport complete NDI streams over LAN, WAN or public internet
  • NDI® Audio Direct: audio-over-IP available for software-based audio applications
  • NDI® Remote: add remote guests to productions
  • Adobe Creative Cloud: plug-in improvements
  • Final Cut Pro: brand new plug-in
  • … and various new tools with easy-to-follow setup guides.

Additionally with NDI 5, discover a new reliable UDP transmission protocol alongside new network interface management.

In order to reduce network resource conflicts with other protocols/applications, NDI 5 lets users specify which network interface will be used by NDI.

Moreover with NDI 5, it’s easy to set up private NDI networks. This ensures NDI streams or inputs cannot be viewed by just anyone on your network.

SDM Family by BirdDog: Integrate & Scale NDI to Screen

BirdDog SDM Family, the ultimate NDI experience integrated, is built on Intel® SDM platform and revolutionizes how content is distributed!

Install the BirdDog SDM module inside an SDM compatible flat panel display for an integrated & scalable NDI to screen solution. AV distribution is built directly into the display, no wall box or patch panel needed.

BirdDog_SDM_IntegratedNDI_TEVIOS

Choose from two SDM modules, controlled by the all-in-one BirdDog OS:

  • M1: Full NDI Sender & Receiver – based on Intel SDM-L form factor
  • M2: NDI Receiver – built on Intel SDM-S module

The modules support resolutions up to 4Kp60. RESTful API is also available for programming automated spaces.

Furthermore, add an optional Dante activation license for full Dante support. With this activation, M1 embeds Dante into the NDI stream and de-embeds Dante audio out of the NDI stream.
