NewTek Spark and PTZ1 updates

NewTek continues to innovate at a rapid pace with our NDI converters and NDI PTZ camera. Below is a list of the enhancements for each that may be downloaded from their individual downloads page on

  • Connect Spark version 1.5 adds:
    • Virtual PTZ Camera function Allows users to determine areas of interest within the entire video raster, zoom in, save those areas as presets, and then transition between them smoothly (at full 1080p60 frame rate), just like you would with a PTZ camera. You can also assign the same source to multiple switcher inputs with different views to switch between virtual cameras.*
    • LTC Timecode Support Stamps timecodes on the video frames via LTC timecode connected to Connect Spark’s audio input with automatic detection of all settings. Any NDI-enabled application can then access the timecode information to enable syncing of multiple NDI streams.
    • Multicast Support Multicast mode allows one Connect Spark NDI source to be viewed by many destinations without setting up multiple point-to-point connections, preserving network bandwidth. Users can easily turn on multicast mode via the Connect Spark’s configuration web page.
    • Ability to Connect Across Networks It’s now possible to find Connect Spark devices on other networks via IP address and add them to the list of visible sources using NDI Access Manager†.
    • Portable Wireless Video Recorder Many people don’t know that Connect Spark is also a wireless video recorder. It supports either a Micro SD card or will record to any USB drive connected to one of the USB ports. This gives users the ability to iso-record all of their cameras in a production for fixes in post or to provide backups for other recordings.
    • Much Improved Audio Quality Audio quality is improved in this latest update to Connect Spark.

*Requires updating NDI Studio Monitor, included with NDI®|HX driver
†Requires updating NDI Access Manager, a part of NDI Tools.

  • NDIHX-PTZ1 Enhancements:
    • Multicast Support Multicast mode is also available in PTZ1 via its own configuration web page.
    • Improved Image Quality The latest update to the NDIHX-PTZ1 also includes enhancements to noise reduction resulting in even better picture quality.
    • Ability to Connect Across Networks It’s now possible to find Connect Spark devices on other networks via IP address and add them to the list of visible sources using NDI Access Manager†. 

†Requires updating NDI Access Manager, a part of NDI Tools.
