More Information

3G-SDI to NDI & NDI to 3G-SDI Conversion

  • Bidirectional encoding/decoding from SDI to NDI or NDI to SDI
  • Combination of HD or DCI 4K/UHD 4K video

Applications

Use for broadcasting, eSports, entertainment venues and other facilities and security and surveillance

3G-SDI Input & Output

  • Supports up to 16 channels of 3G-SDI up to 1080p60 HD
  • Supports up to 4 channels of DCI or UHD 4K60
  • Selectable square division or 2SI 4K

Selectable NDI Profiles

Choose between 8-bit and 16-bit, 4:2:2 NDI encoding profiles

16-Channel Audio

  • SDI and ND embedded audio input and output
  • Supports 2, 8, or 16 channels of embedded audio

Flexible Operation

  • HD Input/Output
    • Use all HD channels for SDI to NDI encoding or NDI to SDI decoding
  • HD Video and Key I/O
    • V+K (video and key) grouping enables dual V+K HD SDI signals to be combined and encoded into a single NDI output with an alpha channel
    • Single NDI inputs with an alpha channel can be decoded and output as dual V+K SDI signals
  • Simultaneous Encoding and Decoding
    • Encodes SDI to NDI and decodes NDI to SDI simultaneously
    • Offers a gateway conversion for easily connecting SDI and NDI work areas  

All Encoding Modes

Accepts up to 16 incoming HD video signals via 3G-SDI and applies NDI encoding to each channel, enabling up to 16 individual HD NDI channels to be output via 10 GigE.

 

The same 16 channels of 3G-SDI can also be used to enable:

  • Eight dual-channel video and key groups to NDI outputs
  • Four quad or dual-channel DCI 4K/UHD 4K groups to NDI outputs

When configured for encoding all incoming SDI inputs to NDI outputs, supports:

Simultaneous 3G-SDI inputs:

  • 16 x simultaneous channels up to 60p YCbCr 4:2:2 10-bit

Simultaneous encoding for individual 1080p channels:

  • 16 x simultaneous channels up to 60p

Simultaneous encoding for 1080p video and key pairs:

  • 8 x simultaneous channels up to 60p

Simultaneous encoding for DCI 4K/UHD 4K groups:

  • 4 x simultaneous channels up to 60p

Supported encoded output via 10 GigE:

  • NDI UYVY, 4:2:2, 8-bit, or P216, 4:2:2, 16-bit

All Decoding Modes

Decodes all incoming NDI signals input via the 10 GigE ports directly to the SDI outputs.

 

Decodes up to 16 x NDI or NDI HX inputs to uncompressed HD video for output via 16x 3G-SDI outputs.

Decodes up to 8 x NDI streams and an alpha channel for conversion and output as 8 x dual 3G-SDI HD video and key channels.

When decoding up to 4x 4K/UltraHD NDI streams, the 16 x connections can support either square division or 2SI for SDI output.

Simultaneous NDI/NDI HX Inputs:

  • 4, 8, or 16 x simultaneous channels up to 60p, UYVY, 4:2:2, 8-bit

Simultaneous 1080p decoding:

  • 16 x simultaneous channels up to 60p

Simultaneous 1080p video and key pairs decoding:

  • 8 x simultaneous channels up to 60p

Simultaneous DCI 4K/UHD DK decoding:

  • 4 x simultaneous channels up to 60p

Supported decoding output via dual 10 GigE ports:

  • YCbCr 4:2:2 10-bit

Encoding/Decoding Combos

Provides up to 8-channel combinations of SDI to NDI encoding and NDI to SDI decoding and SDI to NDI encoding in each direction.

Remote or Local Control

  • Control locally using a mouse and keyboard with a VGA-compatible monitor
  • Remote access for easy control via the same intuitive UI

Monitoring

Confidence monitoring via BNC or VGA video output
