Coming soon! PTZOptics NDI Camera Models… 

…the future of IP video production

Same great cameras, built-in NDI™ support

PTZOptics is proud to announce four new NDI compatible camera models with built-in NDI, NewTek’s industry leading IP technology. The new 12x and 20x NDI camera models will support Power, Control audio and video all over a single Ethernet cable simplifying installation and setup for live streaming systems. With support for HDMI, 3G-SDI and RTSP/RTMP Streaming (H.264H.265 & MJPEG) this camera is ideal for broadcasting high definition video signals for broadcast or video conferencing applications.

New and For a limited time! Existing Gen 2 cameras can be upgraded for NDI functionality for 50% OFF (PTG2-NDI-UPGRADE). Essentially, once released, the upgrade cost is going to equal the difference in price between the SDI and NDI models. Call For More Information.

We believe that this technology has the power to save organisations thousands of dollars with live video projects small and large and that is why we have joined 100s of other manufacturers in the industry standardising around the NewTek NDI protocol. A basic understanding of what is possible with IP Video and NewTek’s NDI will go a long way to paving a future proof solution for your live video production. Whether you are a one-man production studio searching for ways to do more with less, or an advanced team of Broadcast experts, we believe the future of IP video will enhance your capabilities greatly.
