    3D NVS-20

    Launching at IBC 2013, Datavideo NVS-20 is a broadcast quality HD H.264 network streaming server. Unlike many encoding devices, NVS-20 is equipped with a variety of video and audio inputs that enable users to integrate the unit quickly into virtually any workflow.

    Designed for live event streaming, the device is lightweight and portable. It encodes at up-to 6Mb/s, delivering a high quality, low latency media stream. Equipped with HD/SD-SDI, HDMI and composite video inputs, XLR connectors and a stereo audio port, the system has the versatility that live event producers, location video crews and AV companies require.

    “NVS-20 is all about versatility. It can fit in with a variety of production and distribution workflows. It can sit on the desktop or be easily rack-mounted and it can be controlled locally or remotely. At the same time, it delivers the basic HD and SD encoding function with aplomb.”

    NVS-20 is designed to supports multiple streaming protocols (including HLS, TS over IP, RTP, RSTP and Flash), making it suitable for a range of distribution networks, whether users are streaming to local iPads, globally via a CDN or over a local network.

    Users also have flexibility when it comes to device control and management. Supporting DHCP client the unit can be remotely controlled using any computer or mobile device with a web browser. Real-time video with audio data can be monitored through the web UI. Alternatively, it can be operated using the simple mode selector on the unit itself.

  • Grant Petty Blackmagic Production Camera 4K Update 04/09/2013

    3D 4K CAMERA 2

     

    Hi, I just want to give you an update on the 4K camera. As we mentioned a few weeks ago, we received the production sensors much later than we expected. When we built cameras from them we saw some big differences in the images between these production sensors vs the pre production samples we originally received. What this means is that we have been working over the last few weeks to replace a bunch of the software in the camera that handles the sensor calibration and image processing.

    It’s taking a bit longer than we expected to do this and we think its going to take about 3 to 4 weeks more to get those changes done and to get the QA process completed before we can start shipping. We apologize for the delays from the original promised date. Ultimately, image calibration is a very important step so we want to make sure this is done properly before shipping.Regards,Grant Petty Blackmagic Design
