Apantac Introduces New PTZ Camera

News Image
Apantac has launched a new PTZ camera with NDI® built-in.

NDI has been integrated into its new 1080P PTZ camera to be recognisable as a source by other NDI-enabled applications and devices connected to a standard Ethernet local area network.

NDI is a brand of the Vizrt Group and a royalty-free technology that allows video and audio sources to be shared bi-directionally across a network, eliminating the need for costly direct connections, expensive cable runs, and infrastructure upgrades while turning every source into a destination instantly available anywhere on the network.

Apantac's AP-1080P-PTZ-20x (NDI) is designed for capturing video up to 1080P and offers 3G SDI, HDMI, USB 3.0, and HD video over IP. The variety of the formats this camera supports makes it ideal for house of worship, educational and corporate applications. By incorporating NDI, it communicates using the NDI protocol and allows bi-directional distribution and access of live video over existing IP LAN infrastructure. It also seamlessly integrates with most video conferencing and other software applications.

In a conventional implementation, an SDI or HDMI camera video feed can be converted into an NDI stream and sent over the network and an NDI video feed can be converted into an SDI to HDMI video output and plugged into a monitor. The NDI technology makes the camera signal directly available over IP.

"NDI has changed the way content is accessed, created and distributed, making video accessible over IP," said Thomas Tang, President of Apantac. "We are really excited about our first NDI product launch as our PTZ camera allows users to deliver live video over IP to any compatible system or software on the network, using a single cable for all the video, audio and control."

"NDI-enabled devices like Apantac's new PTZ NDI Camera exponentially increase the video sources available for storytellers creating efficiencies and opportunities that did not previously exist," added Michael Kornet, Vice President at NDI. "We've known and admired the team at Apantac for a number of years and recognise that this is a significant moment for AV and broadcast customers that want to work with this respected brand as they come on board with their new NDI camera."
