BirdDog Studio is the world's first portable, camera mountable device that takes standard HDMI or HD-SDI signals and converts them live to NDI (Network Device Interface). NDI is a new, open standard for transporting live broadcast quality video signals over common Gigabit Ethernet networks ubiquitously found in buildings worldwide. It is a simple, plug and play device which can be powered by practically any source - AC, DC and Ethernet (PoE). BirdDog Studio also implements tally, a signalling system that lets camera operators and on screen talent know which camera is currently live to air or preparing for live.

BirdDog Studio enables your existing cameras to be included into a new IP workflow for your live productions. Once you convert your HDMI or SDI signal to IP the possibilities of live productions are magnified. Any network connection becomes a live video input into your switcher. Convert your baseband SDI or HDMI to NDI and take full advantage of flexible IP networks. No need to run long SDI cables or purchase expensive video routers, simply access your live video in real time anywhere on your network.
