The BirdDog Studio SDI/HDMI to Network Device Interface Converter (Educational) 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.

    Studio SDI/HDMI to Network Device Interface Converter (Educational) is rated 2.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Like the concept but the actual execution failed I purchased the "Educational" version for our college's athletics department. Out of the box, power supply measured only 1.2 volts, not 12. Would not power unit. Replacement power supply I had in the shop also rated 12vdc 1.25A (measured) powered unit, but unit never initialized, nothing ever appeared on display. However, power was indicated by green glow through side vents. Could not find unit on the Bird Dog Finder app nor on a browser since it obviously had other issues besides powering. Great concept, hoping it would solve outdoor athletic events with connectivity back to the studio on campus. But, not yet. So, 2 stars because I love what it's supposed to do, but it's not yet ready to pull it off. At least, this particular unit wasn't ready. So, back to B&H I goes. Also, the current release, as of 1/29/18, can only support 1080p resolution, according to release notes. There are a few other anomalies mentioned in the release notes. Read those before buying because they differ from the specs presented in the company and reseller description.
