Newt IP Converters From Ross Video Smooth IP Transition

At the NAB Show NY Ross Video will introduce a new AIMS-compliant UHD-over-IP to SDI/HDMI-2.0 signal converter called Newt that will help customers migrate to an IP infrastructure by building islands in their facility that could include the company’s Raptor EDGE high-density IP/SDI media gateways as well as its XPression graphics system.

With software-defined processing, the company said that Newt easily adapts to rapidly changing IP environments and is its first product that facilitates UHD-over-IP to HDMI-2.0 drop-down conversion. Ross said Newt supports open control protocols like NMOS, Ember+/RAVENNA, and DashBoard.

Housed in a compact 5”x 6” enclosure, Newt can be mounted in a number of configurations, both inside and outside studio environments.

Nestor Amaya, Director of IP Solutions and Infrastructure Product Marketing, Ross Video, said that as the broadcast industry migrates to IP, the need to convert signals into and out of the edges of the IP production network becomes paramount.

“Even as broadcast and production workflows transition to support native IP interfaces, monitors are still using some form of baseband input, and there is a need to convert baseband cameras to IP,” he said. “Newt addresses this challenge by providing a point-of-use throwdown box that lets users monitor their signal chain using current displays, and to convert SDI outputs from cameras to IP.”
