NewTek Connect Spark™: A Quick Introduction
March 16, 2018 by Rex Olson and Chuck Baker
Until now, video capture devices were limited to sending one video signal into one computer. NewTek’s Connect Spark™ uses NDI® technology to send live IP video to your computer network. Any NDI-aware device or application on your network can use the video, even all at the same time. Connect Spark also lets you send the NDI signal via wire or wirelessly.
- Record video to attached USB or SD storage, or capture to your computer with NDI Studio Monitor or NDI IsoCorder applications.
- Comes in SDI and HDMI models
- Supports 1080p60 video
- Provides loop through on audio and video ports
- Provides Tally
- Easy control via built-in configuration web page
For social video users, Connect Spark makes it simple and quick to plug in your video game system, camera or other video source and mix or stream to Facebook, TwitchTV or YouTube, especially since many of the popular and even free applications for such streaming tasks directly support NDI now.
For professional video producers, Connect Spark preserves your investment in traditional cameras and video sources while allowing you to move up to the advantages of IP video production.
