CAMBRIDGE, ON, Canada, August 24, 2016 – Bannister Lake, a number one provider of broadcast data aggregation and graphics solutions, today announced its adoption of NewTek’s Network Device Interface (NDI™) technology for live IP production workflows over Ethernet systems. Using the integration of NDI, Bannister Lake’s broadly-deployed software choices is going to be recognizable as video sources by other NDI-enabled devices and applications on a single network.
Bannister Lake’s initial utilization of NDI technology come in the Super Ticker Chameleon data presentation, management and playout system for broadcast and knowledge displays. Announced earlier this year, Super Ticker Chameleon extends Bannister Lake’s proven data aggregation platform with new graphics creation tools and hybrid playout abilities, developing a tightly-integrated graphics and knowledge engine for distribution targets varying from television news channels to digital signs and websites. Chameleon’s NDI support enables real-time graphic and alpha funnel playout with other NDI-enabled production solutions over an IP network.
“The broadcast and media production industries’ embrace of live, IP-based workflows is constantly on the accelerate, in IP-only deployment models and hybrid operations with baseband SDI,” stated Georg Hentsch, president, Bannister Lake. “Our integration of NewTek’s NDI in Super Ticker Chameleon exemplifies our dedication to this transition. We’ve been impressed with the NDI SDK itself and NewTek’s method of which makes it a wide open technology, and we’re very happy to work together to provide the advantages of IP production workflows to the customers.”
NewTek’s NDI technology enables multiple video systems and applications to recognize and communicate bi-directionally with each other over IP, and also to encode, transmit and receive many streams of top quality, low latency, frame-accurate audio and video instantly. This benefits any network-connected video device, including video mixers, graphics systems, capture cards, cameras and lots of other production devices and applications. Bannister Lake solutions will participate the NewTek Developer Network, the industry’s largest ecosystem of IP-enabled products.
“IP workflows are revolutionizing video production, using the momentum driven by a mix of enabling technologies, customer demand and vendor support,” stated Michael Kornet, executive v . p . of economic Development for NewTek. “The adoption of NDI by innovators for example Bannister Lake for his or her best-of-breed solutions is rendering it probably the most broadly deployed IP production workflow currently available, and we’re excited to welcome Bannister Lake to NewTek’s NDI ecosystem.”
NDI has become offered by NewTek’s royalty free software application developer package (SDK) for just about any company searching to determine IP workflows inside their organization, or perhaps in production tools and systems they manufacture.
Super Ticker Chameleon with NDI integration is going to be highlighted in the approaching IBC2016 Conference and Exhibition, happening September 9-13 in Amsterdam. Bannister Lake will exhibit at IBC2016 with partners including BroadStream Solutions (stand #8.B35) and picture Communications (stand #4.A01).
