The BirdDog Core 5 Monitor SDI/HDMI Encoder & Decoder converts any SDI or HDMI signal in real-time to NDI, NDI|HX2, NDI|HX3, SRT, H.264, HEVC/H.265, RTMP, or RTSP in up to 4Kp60. The Core 5 USB-C port allows you to record native NDI files for post-editing, or send live ultra-low latency high-quality video over Ethernet. With the addition of a Cloud Connect license, you have a globally connected camera with extremely low latency. The High Bright screens are visible in direct sunlight, and the video analysis tools include vectorscopes, waveforms, RGB parades, and more, while the SFP+ port allows for a direct 10GbE connection over copper or fiber for ultra-high performance.
The BirdDog Core 5 SDI/HDMI Encoder & Decoder is a multi-purpose tool for every camera. Use as a video monitor, use as a cross converter, a video analysis tool, an NDI encoder, an encoder to streaming formats like H.264 or HEVC. It’s kind of like having Robin, Chewbacca, Goose, and Milhouse all in one.
