AJA - Bridge NDI 3G

Bridge NDI 3G, a 1RU device that enables conversion between SDI and NewTek’s (Vizrt Group) NDI protocol, is the latest development from APPENA.

Il NDI 3G Bridge features two integrated 10GigE NICs for NDI I/O, as well as high-density SDI connections for up to 16 channels of 3G-SDI I/O, offering up to four channels of 4K or 16 channels of HD, or a mix of HD and 4K NDI encoding/decoding. The device features an “intuitive” interface and system management screen for easy set-up, operation and configuration. Controllable via a web browser, the system enables remote process management, allowing technicians, engineers, operators and producers to view and manage content.

The AJA latest solution, among other applications, has been designed to convert SDI camera and playout sources into NDI streams, enabling easy integration into NDI-compatible workflows, including virtualized productions that leverage NDI-based switches. Using a common network, these sources can be located anywhere within a facility. Conversely, NDI streams can be converted back into SDI ecosystems via configurable Bridge NDI 3G I/O, allowing NDI signals to be fed back into SDI routing systems and traditional baseband workflows.

Nick Rashby, president of AJA Video Systems, tells about Bridge NDI 3G: “As IP’s advantages become more readily apparent, NDI is picking up steam across the broadcast, production and proAV markets. Going all-in on IP, however, isn’t a reality for facilities with significant SDI infrastructure, which is why we’ve created Bridge NDI 3G. Facilities can use Bridge NDI 3G to easily integrate a range of 3G-SDI sources into NDI workflows. It’s designed to help customers make the most out of their current gear while taking advantage of popular IP video advancements in the market.”
