NewTek Connect Spark

NewTek just announce the new Connect Spark. The Sparks are Ethernet/WiFI NDI 3.0 converter boxes.

Simply connect your standrd HD camera and make it's video available via NDI on your network.

Available in both an HDMI and an SDI version they support up to 1080P (3G) video. Equipped with the latest version of Netwok Device Protocol (NDI) they have the new ultra efficient NDI|HX encoding so you can actually send full resolution/frame rate HD video across a standard WiFi connection.

If you prefer a wired signal the Spark also has a gigabit Ethernet port for direct connection to your network.

The Spark also sports analog audio (3.5mm phone) jacks, built in program and preview tally lights, video pass through, and a web based user interface for configuration and monitoring.

The most unexpected feature is the Micro SD slot so you can do a local recording of the camera. Alternately you can connect a USB drive for local recording. Recording is controlled via the web interface.

In addition to being compatible with hundreds of other NDI enabled devices including TriCaster, Livestream Studio, Streamstar, vMix, Wirecast and more using the included drive software you can use the Spark directly with popular desktop video apps like Google Hangouts, Skype, GoToMeeting WebEx and Zoom.

And as always they are available from Digital Arts. Call us at 1-800-692-6442 to place an order or to get more information.
