Panasonic and NewTek Integrate AW-HE130, AW-HE40 PTZ Cameras with NewTek’s NDI

Panasonic and NewTek have successfully integrated Panasonic AW-HE130 and AW-HE40 series PTZ cameras with NewTek’s open Network Device Interface (NDI) technology to stream H.264 video over IP to NDI-compatible systems and devices. A growing number of products already utilizing NewTek’s bi-directional NDI technology enabling IP interoperability. The implementation of NDI and compatibility with NewTek Connect Pro allows AW-HE130 and AW-HE40 series PTZ cameras to be integrated seamlessly with new and existing SDI and IP-based technologies, including production switchers, graphics systems, capture cards and other production devices, as part of an interconnected production workflow.

Panasonic originally showed direct streaming connectivity and camera control with NewTek’s TriCaster multi-camera video production systems at NAB Show 2015. One year later at the 2016 NAB Show saw work beginning to enhance these capabilities with the advantages of NDI and NewTek Connect Pro software. With this integration, Panasonic PTZ cameras will not only stream video to and receive control commands from TriCaster, they will be recognized by other compatible systems and devices as NDI nodes, enabling access to their video feeds across the network and throughout facilities for production use.

The use of IP video promises to fundamentally change the way that we interact and work with video throughout the entire process from acquisition to delivery.
Michael Kornet, executive vice president of business development for NewTek

NewTek’s NDI is now available as a royalty free software developer kit (SDK) for any company looking to establish IP workflows within its organization, or in production tools and systems they manufacture.
