ISE 2019: NewTek To Highlight NDI Integration With Mediasite, PTZ Camera

At the Integrated Systems Europe 2019 tradeshow next week, NewTek (stand 10-K160) will demonstrate the most efficient video streaming solution available for centralized video capture through a collaboration with Sonic Foundry (stand 11-F140.)

The demonstration integrates NewTek’s NDI technology and NewTek’s NDI PTZ Camera with a Mediasite appliance allowing for a more flexible video transmission to any centrally-connected location. NDI-enabled video products, like the NewTek NDI PTZ camera, are automatically detected and able to bi-directionally communicate with Mediasite over a 1GB network in real time. By removing distance limitations and the hassle of setting up equipment, this convergence of technologies provides unprecedented flexibility to acquire and record video on campuses, within enterprises, and at events.

“The Mediasite and NDI integration will help us to capture educational content and campus events more efficiently from anywhere without the need for a complicated setup, extensive equipment, and bandwidth concerns,” says Trond Sørli, multimedia manager at the Oslo, Norway Kristiania University College. “We’re installing two NDI PTZ cameras from NewTek along with two Connect Sparks providing a presenter the slides and integrating with our mobile Mediasite Recorder. The best part: I can control the camera over NDI with a joystick from my desk, and our students and viewers can watch the stream in real-time.”

“The future of video lecture capture is computers, software, and networks. It is here and available now,” says Michael Kornet, executive vice president and general manager of NDI for NewTek. “Our collaboration with Sonic Foundry creates a powerful option that was not previously possible. The NDI and Mediasite integration lets customers plug in our NDI-enabled camera into a standard network port and capture by Mediasite without having to tether, move, or connect any other equipment.

“Increasingly boardrooms, training rooms and classrooms are equipped with video technology to help employees, faculty and students learn and communicate. As these spaces continue to become more collaborative, the technologies, like Mediasite, must be able to scale up as usage grows. We’re excited about Mediasite’s new integration with NewTek’s NDI, because it gives our customers a new way to flexibly capture and deliver videos like never before,” says Rob Lipps, EVP, Sonic Foundry.

NewTek will demo the integration at ISE 2016 from February 5-8.
