The Spark Plus IO converters bypass the need for a capture card solution

IP-based video technology manufacturer NewTek has released two new Spark Plus IO converters designed to simplify the encoding and decoding of video for use in an IP-based workflow through NDI. The Spark Plus IO 4K delivers high bandwidth NDI at full 60p for low latency and high quality in and out over IP. Users can route NDI signals to TV screens or deliver a 4K signal into an NDI workflow. The Spark Plus IO SDI encodes or decodes at rates up 1080p60 NDI for 3G-SDI environments without disrupting the existing traditional SDI video infrastructure. Both Sparks come with PoE, simple auto discovery and tally light with NDI support, all packaged in a compact design that is described as durable and easy to mount.

The Spark Plus IO converters reportedly bypass the need for a capture card solution. They are designed for a quick setup over one Ethernet cable. A web-based interface allows configuration and monitoring from a desktop or mobile browser. The Spark family of converters are reportedly compatible with hundreds of systems, devices and applications that support NDI technology, such as the TriCaster Mini 4K and TriCaster TC1.


NewTek has also unveiled its PTZUHD, said to be the first pan-tilt-zoom camera that transmits full 4Kp60 video directly to NDI-compatible receiving devices across a standard network. The camera allows content creators to capture and deliver high-quality UHD video with native support for resolutions up to 2160p60 using a 30x optical zoom lens and a high-quality Sony CMOS sensor. Requiring only a single Ethernet connection for setup, power, operation and signal flow, the camera is said to pair perfectly with the TriCaster Mini 4K and TriCaster TC1 for a ‘configuration-free NDI experience’.
