South Florida PBS - WPBT - August 21 - 6:30 PM

Network Device Interface Technology


South Florida PBS, WPBT along with Enlighten Digital will be hosting this month’s meeting.

We will explore connectivity, creativity, and control with IP—all while using the network infrastructure commonly in place today using Network Device Interface technology or NDI, developed by NewTek. NDI enables compatible systems, devices, and applications to connect and communicate over IP to share video, audio, and data.

NDI allows WPBT to have broadcast quality PTZ cameras, on-set monitors, computers and teleprompter in the production studio located at a hospital in Coral Gables while the production control room located some 20 miles away at WPBT in North Miami switches the live show, provides graphics and other signals for the show. IP also allows both studios to talk via RTS intercom and multiple channels of audio are networked using DANTE to and from each location. At the studio, the NDI signal carries video, audio, control, tally and power through a single Ethernet cable.

We will see the production control room setup, look at the NDI signals and discuss the application and NDI in general.

Alex Udell will be the presenter for this presentation. He is the Southeastern Territory Manager for NewTek. He has been a resident of Palm Beach County for more than 20 years, graduated from Florida State University and has worked at local TV stations and media outlets in the area.
