Encode your 12G-SDI or HDMI video source to an NDI stream and transmit it using a variety of format options with the CORE 5 Monitor/Encoder/Decoder from BirdDog. The Core 5 is a compact combination encoding, recording, and streaming device that can input up to 4K60 video and output streams to high-quality NDI, NDI|HX/2/3, and IP streams. Its built-in high-bright 5.5" monitor provides a crisp image preview, and its physical buttons keep your hands off the display to keep it clean.
There are two 12G-SDI inputs, an HDMI input, an HDMI loop output, and an RJ45 Ethernet port as well as an SFP+ port to extend your transmission via an optional 1Gb or 10Gb SFP fiber module. The Core 5 also allows you to record your streams using the USB Type-C output, and it encodes into H.264 or HEVC/H.265 video formats. Other features include an integrated tally light, multiple image tools such as waveform, RGB parade, and vectorscopes, and it can be mounted using the 1/4"-20 threads on the top and bottom.
