GB Labs Adopts NewTek NDI for IP Production Workflow

GB Labs was quick to adopt NewTek’s open Network Device Interface (NDI™) standard for IP-based production workflows. With NDI enabled, our product range will be recognizable as a source by other NDI-enabled devices. Systems connected to a standard Ethernet local area network, exponentially increasing the number of video sources available for live production.

This new standard for live production IP workflow is bi-directional and backwards compatible with a large number of devices from top manufacturers already utilizing NewTek’s open protocol allowing IP connectivity between devices. GB Labs’s media storage range will be part of the NewTek Developer Network, the industry’s largest ecosystem of IP-enabled products using the same standard.

GB Labs’s media storage range with NDI integrates seamlessly with NewTek’s TriCaster multi-camera video production systems. This allows production directors to pull from multiple data sources at the same time. Imagine pulling data from multiple Space SSD systems, which can deliver up to 9000MB/second each.

The broadcast industry has been shouting out for an IP workflow solution’” said Ben Pearce, Vice President of GB Labs. “GB Labs are delighted to be involved with NewTek’s NDI Developer Network as they lead the way in IP workflow solutions.”

IP workflows look to revolutionize video production,” said Michael Kornet, executive vice president of Business Development for NewTek. “GB Labs is highly respected both at NewTek and within the industry. By GB Labs enthusiastically embracing NDI, best-of-breed products like Space will help make NDI the most widely adopted IP standard on the market that’s working and in the hands of customers today.”

NDI is now available as a royalty free software developer kit (SDK) for any company looking to establish IP workflows within their organization, or in production tools and systems they manufacture.
