Kiloview - N50

News & Events at DigiBox



NDI & NDI|HX Converter

The Kiloview N50 is a fully functional NDI converter that uses the leading FPGA technologies, advanced-level AVC/HEVC and NDI algorithms.

The N50 supports 12G-SDI format encoding/decoding of both NDI high-bandwidth and NDI|HX2 by H.264/H.265. Support for NDI|HX3 is under development.

In the encoding mode, the N50 easily converts a 4K 12G-SDI video signal into an NDI and NDI|HX stream.

While in decoding mode, it will automatically adapt the NDI and NDI|HX format as your end needs. The N50 operates as either an encoder or a decoder depending on your requirements, it does not simultaneously encode and decode.

N50 handles NDI transmission easily with low latency of less than 80ms.

Pro-level Colour Performance

N50 supports a professional YCbCr 4:2:2 colour space and 10-bit colour depth (8-bit colour depth is also available).

N50 provides higher colour and image quality to match the high standard in the broadcast and medical industries.

Built-in LCD Screen and Scroll Wheel

As a 12G-SDI version of Kiloview N60, the N50 also delivers a great user experience. 

The N50 is equipped with a colour LCD screen for users to check the unit parameters. It can also be used as a big tally and works in conjunction with a small tally on the back panel, making it easy for all personnel in the field to check the PVW or PGM status in real-time.

The scroll wheel enables users to customise settings, switch on/off, set quick shortcuts, and control all video sources with ease.

Audio and Intercom

N50 supports 12G-SDI embedded audio and 3.5mm analog audio encoding/decoding.

It supports an extended USB audio interface (e.g., USB headset), to realize an end-to-end real-time intercom among the Kiloview devices operators and the associated Kiloview Intercom System (KIS) group.

PTZ Control

The N50 supports PTZ control through USB to serial RS-232/RS-485/RS-422.

It also adopts network control protocols (such as Sony Visca/PELCO-D/PELCO-P) for external PTZ control.

Power Supply: PoE and DC

The N50 has 2 ethernet ports, one of which supports the PoE (IEEE 802.3AT) power supply.  

Just plug in a network cable, and you can easily access both the power supply and network transmission.

It also supports DC 12V power supply and the device can also be powered with a portable charger or camera battery.

TF Storage

The N50 provides a TF storage extension that to make it easy to record encoded NDI video directly into a TF card (local recording supports MOV. format).  

TF storage guards your recording and prevents you from losing video frames caused by network delay, network interruption, or fluctuation.  

Central Management with Kilolink Server

N50 can connect to KiloLink Server seamlessly which optimises media transmission by any Kiloview products using any available network links.

It helps to manage, monitor and control all the devices throughout the process.
