IBC Spotlight: Scale Logic CEO Herzan commits to NDI for IP, forecasts future of object storage

Scale Logic firmly planted its flag on the IP landscape at IBC this week, announcing that it will now support software-driven IP workflows using NewTek’s Network Device Interface. SLI will integrate NDI into both SYNERGY and the Genesis product line, making them recognizable as a source by any other NDI-enabled applications and devices connected to a standard Ethernet LAN. At IBC 2016, NewTek and SLI are demonstrating IP interoperability between NDI-enabled applications and devices located at NewTek’s booth and the SLI stand using RAI’s standard Ethernet infrastructure.

Beyond the traditional NAS that is already qualified for use with TriCaster, SLI’s goal is to embed NewTek’s IsoCorder Pro into its Genesis product line to record up to 16 NDI sources. The recorded files would then be available to editors on the SAN for craft editing on any platform. SLI’s roadmap also includes embedding Bridge Connect and adding an HD-SDI card to the Genesis Unlimited and Synergy storage products, enabling direct recording from SDI sources. This runs in conjunction with the NewTek IsoCorder Pro, recording NDI sources. SLI will use an NDI-capable video card that will create NDI content as it is written to storage.

SVG took a moment on the IBC floor with SLI President/CEO Bob Herzan to discuss the company’s commitment to NDI, its growing Media Storage Services post-warranty–support business, and its vision for object storage in the future.
