BirdDog BDSTUM01 Overview

The BirdDog Studio SDI/HDMI to Network Device Interface Converter (Standard) takes HDMI or HD-SDI signals and converts them live to NDI (Network Device Interface). It supports plug-and-play operation and can be powered via AC, DC, or Ethernet (PoE). The converter can be implemented on a device and external tally displays. Configuration and software updates are easily achieved via a web interface and software updates can be applied to all BirdDog devices simultaneously.

The Studio NDI is universally compatible with any NDI compliant device including NewTek TriCaster and VMix live production systems. Remote cameras can easily be removed outside of the studio as the connection from BirdDog Studio NDI to your live show is via the standard Ethernet network. The Studio NDI can display tally onboard and externally via Tally out. Thanks to the improved NDI integration, it can provide both Program and Preview tally indicators.
