Description

Pro Convert 12G SDI Plus encodes full NDI® streams from single-link, 12G-SDI input, while new decoders convert NDI or streaming inputs for 1080p SDI output. The plug-and-play Magewell Pro Convert 12G SDI Plus encoder ingests video up to 4K at 60 frames per second over a single-link, 12Gbps SDI interface and converts it to full NDI streams with extremely low latency. The encoder supports up to 16 channels of embedded audio, while automatic input format detection and DHCP-based network configuration eliminate the need for manual setup. An SDI loop-through connection allows the input signal to be sent simultaneously to additional displays or equipment without external splitters or routers, enabling sources to be easily used in new IP workflows without disrupting existing traditional video infrastructure.

Pro Convert 12G SDI Plus features for live production applications include program and preview tally lights; protocol conversion for NDI control of non-NDI PTZ cameras; and a standard 1/4″-20 thread for camera mounting. The new model is the seventh Pro Convert NDI encoder, joining earlier HD and 4K models with HDMI, 6G-SDI or 3G-SDI interfaces.

Interface

Magewell pro convert 12g SDI plus

The Magewell Pro Convert 12G SDI Plus encoder enables users to control advanced settings, select between NDI source streams and monitor the status of the decoder through a browser-based interface; wired or wireless keyboard or mouse; or using two on-device buttons that overlay an intuitive menu on the SDI output. The device supports eight channels of audio in the NDI stream, with user control of audio gain, sample rate, channel selection and on-screen VU metering. Additional convenience and integration settings include image flip for inverted projector installations; safe area controls for ensuring the display of important content; and remote control of PTZ source cameras.

About NDI® –  (Network Device Interface) software is in the hands of millions of customers worldwide and allows multiple video systems to identify and communicate with one another over IP. NDI can encode, transmit and receive many streams of high quality, low latency, frame-accurate video and audio in real time. This benefits any network-connected video device, including cameras, converters, video mixers, graphics systems, capture cards, and many other production devices.
