newtek ndi ptz camera

We are thrilled to be introducing the world’s first PTZ camera that is truly plug and play—the NewTek NDI PTZ. With built-in NDI functionality, this revolutionary IP video camera transmits full 3G 1080p 60 video directly to NDI-compatible products across a standard network. The NewTek NDI camera connects to the network and delivers pristine video and audio, as well as tally, PTZ control, and power all over a single Ethernet cable.

Once connected to the network, the camera is visible to all compatible systems running the latest version of NDI, including NewTek TriCaster®, LiveStream Studio, SplitmediaLabs, XSplit, Streamstar®, OBS Studio, StudioCoast vMix, Telestream Wirecast, and hundreds more. More sources become available immediately with the simple addition of NDI cameras to the network. Once available on the network, the NewTek NDI PTZ camera is also automatically recognized by applications such as GoToMeeting™, Skype™, Skype for Business, Zoom Media and many others.

“There have been a few inflection points in the broadcast industry that have delivered profound benefits, such as the transition to nonlinear editing from cutting tape. The move to IP-based production is one of those unique moments in our industry,” said Dr. Andrew Cross, president and CTO for NewTek. “The transition is happening fast because it is being driven by customer demand. Producers recognize this technology simplifies their work, while expanding their opportunity to create more and better shows. With the availability of NDI cameras, from NewTek and others that are sure to follow, IP-based production is truly here.”
