The Studio Converter is a camera mounted SDI & HDMI to NDI converter.
NDI made simple
Convert your 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.
Dual Color Tally
BirdDog Studio can display Tally on board and externally via Tally out. Due to our superior NDI integration we can provide both Program and Preview tally indicators. Uses the inexpensive metaSETZ TLC-2-A tally light.
Power from anywhere
We have your bases covered when it comes to power. BirdDog Studio can accept power input from the Ethernet cable via Power Over Ethernet. Don’t have a PoE network infrastructure? No worries, simply power via DC or V/Gold-mount battery plate optional accessories with power pass-through (coming soon).
Central fleet control
Control and configure multiple BirdDog Studio devices through our admin panel which is accessible via a web browser on both mobile devices and desktop.
Monitor loop-out/format converter
SDI and HDMI outputs are always live allowing you to convert from SDI to HDMI and vice versa. Connect a monitor to BirdDog Studio or simply use to loop out to other gear.
We’re working all the time and as additional features are made available we will release these at no cost. To make updates easy a simple site deployment wizard will ensure all BirdDog Studios in your facility are updated, and all running the same software version.
