NewTek-Vizrt IP Graphics Server Now Available

News Image
The NewTek-Vizrt IP Graphics Server, also known as the NVG1, is now available.

Announced by NewTek and Vizrt, the NVG1 is a real-time 4K-capable 3D graphics system designed for integration with NewTek IP Series and the new TriCaster TC1 video production systems. It combines the NewTek 1RU server platform with NDI IP video connectivity and Viz Trio/Viz Engine software that provides users with live graphics inside of NewTek's end-to-end IP-native video workflows.

The NVG1 streamlines graphics operations by using NewTek's NDI IP video standard to bi-directionally transfer video, audio, key, control and metadata on a single network cable over existing GigE infrastructures. The slim 1RU chassis and front panel design is ideal to NewTek IP Series, TriCaster TC1, and NewTek Connect conversion products.

Available in either single or dual-channel configurations, the NVG1 can output in resolutions and frame rates up to 2160p60. The system ships with user customisable graphics packages for news and sports from New York-based broadcast design house, Polygon Labs. Customised graphics packages are also available from NewTek professional services working in conjunction with the design team at Polygon Labs.

Brian Olson, VP of Product Management for NewTek, explained: "Graphics are an integral part of how a video production looks and feels, making this another step in enabling our users to create the highest quality productions possible. Adding the most in-demand, prolific real-time 3D graphics system in the industry to the workflows powered by NewTek is an exciting development because of the creativity and innovation it provides for our customers. This is another arrow in the quiver for the creators and producers out there looking to make the very best 4K UHD productions and broadcasts."

"Partnering with NewTek on the NVG1 was a natural extension of our business," added David Jorba, president of Vizrt Americas. "Vizrt was an early adopter of NewTek's IP video interface, and we've always had a great relationship. It became obvious as our core markets started to converge with the introduction of the NewTek IP Series and TriCaster TC1, both IP-native and 4K-capable, that a strategic alliance made perfect sense. NewTek customers wanting to have our market-leading real-time 3D graphics as part of their production will now be able to have a complete system from a single vendor."
