According to Newtek, “it does far more than just connect video sources on a LAN to the production switcher. It creates an exponential IP video matrix wherein each switcher recognises all video sources connected to other production switchers, replay systems, graphics systems and more on the LAN as IP sources and vice versa. Any device can use another’s connected inputs (and outputs) across the network, enabling multiple systems to scale the number of inputs and output resources.” Advanced IP Workfl ow, which makes use of the Network Device Interface (NDI), an open IP protocol also announced Watch the at IBC, made its debut in IBC interview a new version of TriCaster Advanced Edition. It is also available as a software upgrade. www.newtek.com 08 | KITPLUS - THE TV-BAY MAGAZINE: ISSUE 106 OCTOBER 2015
