Connect Spark SDI
Say GOODBYE to cost, cables and confusion. Welcome to the fastest, easiest, and best way to get video into your shows. Introducing NewTek™ Connect Spark™
Simply connect your camera or other video output to NewTek Connect Spark, and have them instantly available as sources for other NDI® compatible systems and software on your network. IT’S THAT EASY. Connect Spark IP video converters with NDI deliver video faster, easier, BETTER. And eliminates the usual set up hassles and expenses.
The NewTek Connect Spark SDI is a Wi-Fi-capable IP video converter designed for the NewTek open-source NDI standard. It supports up to 1080p59.94 video, and allows for remote recording to optional USB or microSD storage media. It can also be controlled via a web-based user interface for configuration and monitoring. The NDI standard (Network Device Interface) allows all NDI-compatible video equipment to freely recognize and interact with one another, as long they're connected to the same network over Ethernet or Wi-Fi.
Connect Spark SDI is designed to provide an ideal way to get SDI video into a computer or IP-based video workflow. It allows you to convert any SDI source for compatibility with hundreds of NDI-compatible systems, devices, and applications that can be connected on the same network, enabling you to efficiently incorporate that SDI source into IP-based video capture and production workflows.
You won't need all the cables you normally would, but can rather send and receive video to/from your computer through the network (Your computer would need to be NDI-enabled, and this is easily done with NDI software such as Connect Pro, sold separately). As soon as you plug the Connect Spark to a network, the SDI source connected to it will instantly become available as an input for any NDI-compatible hardware and software on the network.

About NewTek NDI®NDI is in use on millions of systems and allows multiple video systems to identify and communicate with one another over IP, and to encode, transmit and receive many streams of high quality, low latency, frame-accurate video and audio in real time. This benefits any network-connected video device, including video mixers, graphics systems, capture cards, and many other production devices. This makes it possible to exponentially increase the number of sources available for live production switching, without directly attaching to devices, changing locations, or investing in expensive, high-bandwidth networks that simply replace SDI-based workflows.
