Seamlessly bridging AV-over-IP and live streaming with baseband display and distribution equipment, Magewell’s Pro Convert for NDI® to SDI decoder transforms live IP streams for output to baseband monitors, projectors, production and distribution equipment via HDMI. The compact converter supports both Newtek’s NDI® AV-over-IP technology and the Secure Reliable Transport (SRT) protocol – developed and open-sourced by Haivision – for internet-delivered H.264 and H.265 streams. It also supports additional streaming protocols including RTSP, RTMP, UDP, RTP and HTTP.
Offering the high reliability, assured performance and compact size of dedicated hardware compared to software-based stream playout, the low-latency decoder is ideal for applications including multi-site video distribution; image magnification (IMAG); video walls; digital signage; remote production; or bridging legacy and next-generation media infrastructures.
The Pro Convert for NDI to SDI decodes streams up to 2048x1080 at 60fps for output over its 3Gbps SDI interface. The plug-and-play decoder features DHCP-based network configuration, and users can specify source streams and control the decoders’ advanced settings through a browser-based interface; wired or wireless keyboard or mouse; or using on-device controls that overlay an intuitive menu on the SDI output.
