Transition to an IP Workflow today and reap the rewards of a more flexible and powerful production environment!
BirdDog is dedicated to simplifying your transition from baseband video to IP workflows such as NDI.
The transition to an IP-based workflow doesn’t have to involve complex and expensive equipment. It also doesn’t demand the replacement of your existing tools, which are likely doing their current job well. Ask Bruce if you are interested in understanding a little more about how IP technologies like BirdDog, can simplify, and enhance, any production environment. Get more from what you’ve got!
BirdDog News & Updates…
Introducing BirdDog SDM Family!
Built upon Intel® SDM platform the BirdDog SDM Family will revolutionise the way content is distributed to even the largest installations. Simply install the SDM module inside an SDM compatible flat panel display (Such as PANASONIC SQ1 SERIES) for the most integrated and scalable NDI® to screen solution available. No more wall boxes or patch panels, now the AV distribution is built directly into the display.
Controlled by the all in one BirdDog OS and with two BirdDog SDM modules to choose from, M1 an M2, there is a solution for every project. M1 is a full NDI Sender and Receiver based on the Intel SDM-L form factor and M2 is an NDI Receiver built on the Intel® SDM-S module. With support for resolutions all the way up to 4Kp60, there is also a RESTful API for programming completely automated spaces.
PTZ Keyboard Has Arrived!
First stock of the BirdDog PTZ Keyboard has now arrived and gone out! A demo unit is available if you are keen to check it out.
The BirdDog PTZ Keyboard has BirdDog’s custom NDI hardware and will communicate with your PTZ cameras via NDI, NDI|HX, Visca over IP, RS422, and RS232 all at the same time, with dedicated ports for each on the back. With NDI, it has never been easier to connect with and control your cameras!
The keyboard has a really solid feel – from the joystick to the buttons and knobs. It is weighty enough to stay put on the desk when your moving the joystick, and compact enough to fit in the restricted desktop spaces found in a lot of live production environments. Operational feedback and videos will follow soon!

P4K – The world’s best full NDI PTZ camera
It was a given that they would do it. They had the NDI cameras. They had the 4K NDI encoder/decoders. They were obviously going to release a 4K camera at some point. Who would have guessed they’d do it so well though? On paper the P4K looks like it is going to be stunning.
