Todd Rundgren 4K Concerts with Newtek IP Series

Here's a great story on IP production from NewTek. Read how these guys pulled off an historic concert shoot in 4K resolution using the NDI technology built into their production gear.

“While 4K resolution on its own is a monumental industry breakthrough that poses distinct advantages at every stage of production, it’s even more extremely powerful when you combine it with the fast emerging video over IP infrastructure,” Andersen added. The IP Series supports NDI®, a NewTek innovation that uses gigabit Ethernet for cost-effective video over IP, compared to more costly fiber or conventional SDI....[continue reading]
