Description

The Magewell Pro Convert TX NDI encoders lower the cost of transitioning into IP-based video production and AV workflows. Magewell’s award-winning Pro Convert family of hardware converters enables users and systems integrators bring HDMI or SDI video signals into and out of AV-over-IP workflows using NewTek’s popular NDI technology. While the flagship Pro Convert Plus models include signal loop-through connections and can be flexibly switched between encoding and decoding modes, Pro Convert TX configurations offer a lower-cost entry point for customers needing only a low-latency NDI encoder to transform baseband sources into high-quality NDI streams.

Pro Convert family of NDI encoders, built on NewTek’s extremely popular NDI media-over-IP technology, help users reliably bring traditional video signals into IP-based live production and AV infrastructures. Available in 4K and 1080p60 configurations with a choice of input interfaces, the converters enable users to easily and cost-effectively connect their existing equipment into NDIenabled networks. The ultra-compact Pro Convert devices are ideal for both in-studio and portable field use. Value-added features for live production applications include a 1/4″-20 thread for standard camera-mounting accessories, preview and
program tally lights, and NDI-based PTZ camera control. The units can be powered by the included AC adapter or via Power over Ethernet (PoE) for further deployment simplicity.

Pro Convert TX devices still include the Pro Convert family’s popular value-added features including Power over Ethernet (PoE) support; program and preview tally lights; NDI-based PTZ camera control; and a standard 1/4″-20 thread for camera mounting. Automatic input format detection and network configuration enable plug-and-play ease of use, while an intuitive browser-based interface provides access to status monitoring and advanced conversion settings such as FPGA-based video processing. The Pro Convert HDMI TX supports inputs up to 2048×1200 via its HDMI 1.4 interface, while the Pro Convert SDI TX handles sources up to 1080p60 over 3G-SDI

INTERFACE

Pro Convert HDMI TX

The Magewell Pro Convert HDMI TX enables users can 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 HDMI 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.
