Dave Shapton, editor-in-chief for UK-based RedShark News, dropped by the NewTek booth at NAB with some hardware of his own — two awards that were given to NewTek recognizing TriCaster® TC1 and NewTek NDI™. Dave presented the awards on NewTek’s “NDI Central Live” show at NAB to Rex Olson who accepted them with honor on behalf of all NewTek employees. The two awards are:
Best Live Production Product: TriCaster TC1
From NewTek’s product information: NewTek TriCaster TC1 is the most complete production system on the planet for the modern producer, publisher, and content creator. Equipped with industry-leading, software-driven live production technology and hundreds of advanced production capabilities for existing and emerging video workflows, including native IP processing; switching, streaming, recording, and delivery in HD, 3G, and 4K Ultra HD; integrated video playback, recording, and replay; Skype TX software integration; dual-channel live streaming; real-time social media publishing; and more.
RedShark News says: “The new TriCaster works with 4K video and is built on top of NewTek’s remarkable NDI video-over-IP network technology. While other companies dance around each other to arrive at interoperability, NewTek has gone ahead and made a comprehensive and open IP video ecosystem that just works.”
Best IP Product: NewTek NDI
From NewTek’s product information: NewTek’s innovative NDI technology is a royalty free standard enabling IP video workflows across Ethernet networks. NDI is a bi-directional standard that allows video systems to identify and communicate with one another over IP, and to encode, transmit, and receive multiple streams of broadcast-quality, low latency, frame-accurate video and audio in real time.
RedShark News says: “NDI deserves to win this. At the show, NewTek had over 40 NDI sources coming from other booths on the show floor, across a hastily assembled network. This sounds like a recipe for disaster. But in practice, it worked beautifully, and it made the point that NDI is here and now. Not only that, but broadcast-level manufacturers like Vizrt are including it in their products, dispelling any doubts about quality.”
