InfoComm 2018: NewTek, Panasonic Showcase IP Video Signage
NewTek unveiled an NDI signage demonstration designed to direct any video and audio source to any monitor on a standard gigabit network at InfoComm 2018. Combining the power of NewTek’s NDI Studio Monitor software with industry standard signage allows the addition of another stream as a separate overlay. Monitors and sources can be managed with a web application from any networked laptop, tablet, or phone. This demonstration shows the capability to direct any AV source and any overlay to any monitor with ease and efficiency over IP while spotlighting creative possibilities and cost-saving opportunities for AV customers.
“Panasonic professional displays are utilized throughout AV signage installations and we are pleased to showcase a Panasonic signage display in conjunction with NewTek Studio Monitor software at InfoComm in the NewTek booth accepting IP Video sources including content and overlays all on a standard Ethernet network with NewTek’s NDI,” says Delix Joseph T. Alex, product manager of Camera Systems for Panasonic. “This is a great compliment to our other NDI products including our PTZ camera lines and our AV-HLC100 production system.”
“We are excited to demonstrate with Panasonic how multiple content sources can be delivered and managed to signage displays through standard Ethernet,” says Michael Kornet, executive vice president and general manager for NDI at NewTek. “IP video is the right distribution method for AV customers and NewTek NDI is the leading video over IP technology.”
Leading into InfoComm 2018, NewTek continues to extend NDI as the technology for sharing video between software applications and hardware devices on standard Ethernet networks. NDI is royalty free and implemented in thousands of products and used by more than 10 million people worldwide making it the most widely adopted and used IP video standard. Recent announcements of major new NDI integrations by leading companies like Microsoft Skype further solidify this position.
