What is NDI?

 

NDI (Network Digital Interface) technology has been developed by NewTek, it is made available to anyone with a royalty-free license, and has been widely adopted by many broadcast vendors. NDI  is becoming a de facto standard in the live production industry. NDI revolutionizes video production workflow by removing the physical I/O constraints of traditional broadcast infrastructure. Any NDI-enabled device on the network can see and access content from all other devices, allowing more sources than ever before to be used for live production.

 

 

 

What is the specification of NDI|HX?

NDI is designed to run over existing 1 Gigabit networks, allowing easy adoption of the protocol without new infrastructure. This is achieved through the use of video compression with the NDI|HX codec, which delivers 1080 Full HD video at data rates typically around 15Mbps. NDI|HX is a 4:2:0 8-bit codec, based on H.264 compression. It supports 1080p and 720p, at different frame rates. Factory default mode is 1080/25p at 10Mbps. 

Format

Bit rate

1920x1080/50p 8192kbps~24,576kbps
1920x1080/50p/12,5p/25p 1024kbps~14,336kbps
1280x720/50p 3072kbps~14,336kbps
1280x720/50p/12,5p/25p 512kbps~ 8,192kbps

 

Excellent HC images via HDMI, USB and IP, plus HD via HD-SDI

The AW-HN40 series of integrated full HD cameras perform in a wide variety of onsite shooting applications that require high-quality video, such as conferences, lecture capture and other events, thanks to its high-performance zoom, wide angle of view and outstanding colour reproducibility.
 

In addition to a 30x optical zoom, the HN40 also features intelligent zoom up to 40x and a 1.4x digital extender to capture crisp close-ups even in large auditoriums and lecture halls. The HN40 delivers an impressive signal-to-noise ratio of 54dB (F4/2000lx, minimum illumination, .35 lx), 1000 TV lines of resolution and 16-axis colour matrix control for precise camera “painting” and matching.

The HN40 already includes many innovative standard features developed to expand the capabilities of professional video system users. In addition to Panasonic's Dynamic Range Stretch (DRS) and advanced Digital Noise Reduction (DNR), an ingenious High Dynamic Range (HDR) mode helps to produce very good video even in extreme contrast and lighting conditions.

 

 

Video Outputs: Standard professional interfaces include HDMI, as well as IP/Network for single cable delivery of high-quality content up to 1080/60p. 

Audio Input: Audio input and embedding (on IP, HDMI) are also available via a switchable, stereo MIC/LINE input. 

Serial Control: RS-422 serial compatibility is available for serial-based control workflows (i.e. connection to AW-RP50/120 or previous controllers). RS-232 and RS-422 VISCA protocol are available when introducing a Panasonic camera into an existing control structure. 

USB or microSD Card Recording: The mini-USB connector allows the AW-HN40 to be utilized as a USB camera utilizing standard USB Video/Audio class drivers. Many applications that connect to USB cameras, such as teleconferencing or software switching solutions, will be able to connect to the HN40 without external converters. Alternatively, microSD recording enables ISO MP4/H.264 recording internally in the HN40, transfer of content over the network via web browser or FTP. 

Network Connected: The LAN port on the HN40 unleashes the possibilities:

  • Power of Ethernet+ (PoE+) for easier system installation and setup
  • Control the camera via the network with an AW-RP50/120 hardware controller or Panasonic software solutions
  • Access the built-in web interface to monitor and control all aspects of the camera
  • Utilize a supported third-party control system from broadcast control systems, switchers, lecture capture systems, AV Control system and more
  • By default, the camera has a built-in H.264/MJPEG encoder for 7 channels of encoding up to 25Mbps. Pair with a supported hardware or software decoder
  • Built-in NDI|HX (a technology of NewTek Inc.) for the ultimate single cable production workflow with Ultra-low latency video, audio, control, tally, and power over a single cable

    In the last few years, PTZ (Pan, Tilt and Zoom) cameras have become more powerful - and versatile. The latest cameras are full broadcast quality (up to 4K) and have such comprehensive connectivity that there's usually no need for a conventional broadcast infrastructure.This is ideal for modern video productions in an environment where broadcast infrastructure is rapidly being replaced by IP/IT technology.At the same time, demand for video content is mushrooming beyond the capacity of traditional budgets. This calls for more TV production facilities but without the cost. Here's how PTZ cameras can help.
