Streaming Media's Anthony Burokas had an exclusive preview of the new BirdDog Flex NDI Converter, a tiny device that delivers tally, audio, video, PTZ control, audio intercom, and power via a single Ethernet cable.
The Smallest NDI on the Planet.
4K NDI in an incredibly small package. Flex delivers everything you have come to expect from BirdDog’s one cable solution including Tally, Audio, Video, PTZ Control, Audio Intercom and Power along a single Ethernet cable.
With 3 models to choose from in the Flex Family, Flex is perfect for all your workflow needs.
If you aren't lucky enough to own a BirdDog PTZ camera with Full NDI natively then Flex can become the ultimate sidekick. Plug your PTZ camera into Flex via HDMI, attach the optional BirdDog PTZ control cable for full PTZ pass through control. This makes Flex the perfect upgrade for your PTZ camera.
Flex 4K NDI family can support Dante input and output via the 3.5mm audio jack or the HDMI input on Flex IN and Flex BACKPACK. Flip Dante out of the NDI stream or embed Dante into the NDI stream. The choice is yours.
Dante support for Flex 4K NDI is shipping Q3 2020. Click here to register your interest - https://www.bird-dog.tv/dante/
