The Flex 4K BACKPACK HDMI Encoder from BirdDog is an ultracompact NDI interface for HDMI video sources. Connect your onboard monitor, camera, or other video source, and have it available instantly on your NDI-enabled network. The BirdDog BACKPACK supports up to UHD 4K30 and 1080p60 resolution video.
The versatile BACKPACK can be powered using a Sony L-Series-type battery, PoE, or a separately available 12V power supply. A 15W DC output port enables you to power select monitors and cameras from your BACKPACK power source. Tally information is displayed for both the talent and the operator and passed through to compatible equipment. Connect a separately available cable to the 2.5mm RS232 port for pass-through control of non-NDI PTZ cameras. Additional features include an adaptive bitrate, a cooling thermal design, a 3.5mm audio input, and a 3.5mm headphone output.
