NewTek Showcases All IP Production Tour de Force at NAB 2018 With New Products, Key Announcements and Updates!
NewTek continues to offer customers a clear pathway to end-to-end, all-IP video production with an unprecedented array of exciting new products, technology updates, virtualised control room software, affordable yet uncompromising 4K workflows, and more at NAB 2018. NewTek’s leadership position in IP video makes it the only provider that can offer the depth and breadth of solutions for producers of every size along the entire workflow path from ingest to production, enhancement, and delivery.
“NewTek have long believed that the future of video production is based on software, computers, and networks, and we’ve based the last 15 years of our R&D on building products to this vision,” said Dr. Andrew Cross, president and CTO of NewTek. “These announcements, new products, and the leap towards virtualised control rooms were nearly unthinkable a short time ago. Because we are completely software-based, NewTek is the only major live production solution capable of being virtualised today. Combine that with our leadership position in IP video, including NDI® and SMPTE ST 2110 support and these announcements we are making at NAB 2018, you have the most cutting-edge solutions for broadcasters looking to streamline their operations and for new users looking to becoming broadcasters.”

The Studio Module will remain fully compliant with the SMPTE ST 2110 standard, allowing for complete inter-operability with any other broadcast appliance working within the same IP standard. The Studio Module can also be used as either input or output — placing 1080p/4K signals onto the network, or decoding them back into standardised SDI signals. The NC1 Studio I/O IP Module also supports NewTek NDI on every channel. LEARN MORE

For 30 years Newtek has been developing innovative, powerful tools and technologies for live production and putting them into the hands of anyone with a message to deliver or a story to tell. From web bloggers to broadcasters, houses of worship, colleges, football teams and live event producers, products such as Newtek Tricaster have allowed individuals and businesses of all sizes to have access to the tools they need to create and deliver content from anywhere, to anywhere. In making their technology accessible, Newtek makes no compromises on performance, reliability, capability or flexibility, delivering in the most demanding and mission critical environments.
Tim Jenison founded Newtek in 1986 with Video Toaster®, the world’s first “television studio-in-a-box”. Tim and NewTek would continue to develop on this ideal, introducing TriCaster® in 2005, a complete multi-camera video production system. This would come to be supported by 3Play, for live slow motion replay and recording, as well as software tools for CG / titling and virtual sets.
Now, Newtek drives the industry forward to its inevitable IP future, with their game-changing technology NDI (Network Device Interface) and advanced hardware and software tools that leverage and augment it, including: Newtek IP Series modular live production systems, MediaDS media distribution servers, TalkShow Skype for broadcast solutions and array of software applications for integrating PC’s and traditional broadcast equipment into a new, IP world.
