NDI made simple
With the BirdDog Studio (pictured below) you can easily convert your baseband SDI or HDMI to NDI and take full advantage of flexible IP networks. You no longer need to run long SDI cables (or much shorter HDMI cables!) to bring in live video sources to your video switcher, instant-replay system, graphics generators or streaming devices. NDI lets you bring inlive video in real time anywhere on your network. NDI was developed by NewTek for the TriCaster and other NewTek products. Many, many other vendors have joined the NDI world including vMix, vizrt, StreamStar, LiveStream, WireCast, OBS (Open Broadcaster Software). Until September, the Studio NDI includes BirdDog's Comms software (see below) for free, a $495.00 value.
The recently introduced BirdDog Mini (pictured below) is a smaller version of the BirdDog Studio, works with HDMI video sources only and costs less (MSRP $595.00). Like its bigger brother, the Mini lets you connect to the NDI world and includes support for Tally, Power over Ethernet, Intercomm support, and the ability to play out to a TV or monitor via BirdDog Link.

BirdDog Studios' Comms software (MSRP $495.00) pictured below allows you to create an intercomm system using your NDI network. Running on a Windows 10 touchscreen device, you can communicate with your camera operators while switching a live show.
