Magewell Pro Convert NDI Encoders

Magewell Ultra Convert Range.

In the world of live production and AV-over-IP, one technology has been making waves for its ability to transmit high-quality video over standard networks with minimal latency: NewTek’s NDI® technology. With the help of Magewell’s Pro Convert NDI encoders, it’s now easier than ever to join the IP revolution without having to replace your current gear. In this article, we’ll explore the features and benefits of these encoders, how they seamlessly integrate with existing equipment, and the ease of installation and configuration they offer.

What is NDI® Technology?

NDI® (Network Device Interface) is a revolutionary IP video technology developed by NewTek. It allows for the transmission of high-quality video over standard 1Gb networks, making it a cost-effective and scalable solution for live production and AV-over-IP workflows. With NDI®, a 1Gb network can transmit HD or even 4K production-grade video with very low latency, opening up new possibilities for broadcasters, content creators, and AV professionals.

Magewell Pro Convert NDI Encoders: The Gateway to NDI®

Magewell’s Pro Convert NDI encoders serve as the gateway to NDI® technology, allowing you to connect your existing equipment to NDI-enabled video-over-IP workflows. These encoders are available in two models: the Pro Convert HDMI 4K Plus and the Pro Convert 12G SDI 4K Plus. Both models support input signals up to 4K at 60fps 4:4:4, with 4Kp60 4:2:2 NDI encoding.

Seamless Integration with Existing Equipment

One of the key advantages of the Pro Convert encoders is their ability to seamlessly integrate with your current equipment investments. While some new products may support NDI directly, many customers prefer to leverage their existing gear with NDI-compatible software and systems. With the Pro Convert encoders, you can easily connect your cameras and production solutions to NDI-enabled workflows, eliminating the need for costly equipment upgrades.

Easy Access and Plug-and-Play Installation

Setting up IP-based devices can often be a daunting task, but Magewell’s Pro Convert encoders make it easy. These encoders automatically detect your DHCP-based network and the input signal video format, minimizing or even eliminating the need for manual configuration. Additionally, the encoders offer a browser-based GUI interface for easy access and configuration, and flexible control options allow you to manage the devices even before connecting them to your network.

Power and Control Options

Magewell’s Pro Convert encoders offer flexible power options. They can be powered via Power over Ethernet (PoE) or USB power supply, providing you with convenient options based on your setup and requirements. Additionally, the encoders feature program and preview tally lights, allowing you to easily monitor the status of your video feeds.

The FPGA-based video processing in the Pro Convert encoders ensures high-quality video encoding and low latency, while the PTZ control interface enables remote NDI control of connected cameras. This means you can control camera movements and settings directly from your NDI-enabled software or system, adding flexibility and convenience to your live production workflows.

Stream Across Network Segments

With the Pro Convert encoders, you can easily send NDI streams across network segments. This enables you to distribute your video feeds to multiple destinations and production systems, regardless of their physical location within your network infrastructure. Whether you’re streaming to remote locations, different studios, or even different buildings, the Pro Convert encoders provide the flexibility and scalability you need.

Automated Failover Redundancy

In live production, redundancy is vital to ensure uninterrupted broadcasts. The Pro Convert encoders offer automated failover redundancy, allowing for seamless switching between primary and backup encoders in case of network or device failures. This ensures that your video feeds keep flowing and your live events continue without any disruptions.
