BirdDog Central is a software platform set to redefine the way we think about driving content to TV screens. By teaming up Central with any NDI® source, including all BirdDog hardware capable of creating NDI® sources, you can now drive your NDI® streams to any BirdDog Studio NDI or Mini to decode NDI® back to SDI or HDMI.

Three clicks. Send anywhere.

It’s really that easy to get NDI® content onto your screens. Simply select your source, select your destination, and click apply. Now you are sending your NDI® content to a single BirdDog hardware decoder or any of your groups anywhere on the network.

By grouping your BirdDog NDI® Decoders you can instantly drive content to multiple screens. Gang up 10, 20, or even hundreds of receivers and push the NDI® content to your group with just three clicks. With Central it’s so easy to create the groups, simply select any of the BirdDog receivers in your destination windows and assign to a group.

Any NDI® source. BirdDog plays nice.

Central will work with any full version NDI® source on your network, whether it is a feed from a live BirdDog PTZ Camera, a BirdDog Encoder, a file playing off a computer, or the output from an NDI® compatible switcher. Any of your NDI® sources will show up in Central and you can push that to your BirdDog Studio NDI or Mini and they’ll play nice and decode it back to baseband video for you.

Central is compatible with all BirdDog hardware generated NDI® sources including Studio NDI, Mini, and of course the ground-breaking PTZ Line. These will show up automatically in your source windows and you can then chose which destinations to send them to.

NDI Multiview has been designed to be incredibly powerful and super intuitive to use. Create an NDI Multiview stream in a matter of seconds.

BirdDog Comms Pro - World’s Best NDI® Audio Intercom System 

Harnessing the true power of NDI®, BirdDog Comms Pro is the world’s first audio intercom system integrating live camera feeds.

Be in total control and see every angle of your live production with live video windows from every BirdDog NDI® enabled camera source.

Comms Pro has reimagined what an Audio Intercom system should look like. With video windows available for all the BirdDog Encoded NDI® Sources your director now has vision of all the cameras at their fingertips.

5 party lines. Talk to who you need.

Intuitive group management ensures everyone is on the right channel. Comms Pro makes it super easy to set up the call groups for clear lines of communication.

With support for Push To Talk (PTT), camera operators simply push the call button on any 4 Pole TRRS headset and talk to the group they are set up in. On the directors side, simply push any of the groups to talk to that group. It’s really that easy.
