KILOVIEW is expanding its family of Network Device Interface (NDI)-compliant solutions with the introduction of its new NDI Recorder, which joins the company’s growing ecosystem of IP-based hardware and software video encoding, decoding, conversion, switching and streaming technologies.
The launch of the NDI Recorder is the latest milestone in KILOVIEW’s ongoing product roadmap to continually develop AV over IP workflow technologies. The new product is an independent recording system for video archiving and backup, ensuring all NDI sources are recorded separately and maintained in synchronisation with other data. The recorder can support up to 20 channels of NDI sources in any resolution or format.
Each of the company’s technologies, including the new recorder, are designed to give content owners and A/V media professionals an end-to-end resource for cost-effectively hosting, conducting and managing remote production and live streaming applications.
“Online content and remote production have proven to be effective and efficient methods for distributing content, reaching new audiences and creating high-quality immersive web-based experiences,” said Judy Zuo, VP and Head of Sales and Marketing at KILOVIEW. “As more organisations adapt their production workflows to online environments, it’s more important than ever to develop families of products that ‘talk’ to each other to make the end-to-end production chain as plug-and-play as possible. That’s the concept behind our entire line of NDI solutions.”
The Network Device Interface is a standard protocol for ultra-low latency, lossless transmission. It enables interactive control over an IP network, delivering and receiving high-definition uncompressed video at the lowest latency among other NDI-compliant devices on any network or in the cloud.
KILOVIEW first entered the NDI market in 2020 with its MultiView Player, multi-screen playback software capable of handling an unlimited number of NDI streams with up 16 streams displayed in a single multi-view window layout. User viewing options include multi-screen split display, picture-in-picture (PIP) or multi-window playback. The software allows easy connection with smartphones, computers, NDI-enabled encoders, cameras, and production systems.
KILOVIEW has since rolled out its line of NDI technologies: H.264/HEVC encoders/decoders, control panels, Media Gateway, NDI converters, KILOLINK Server and the new NDI Recorder.
All KILOVIEW technologies are based on an ‘Any In, Any Out, Anywhere’ concept, with the ability to support any type of video input from baseband SDI or HDMI signals, HD, 4K or IP content. The company’s ecosystem provides users with the appropriate hardware or software solution to output IP streams in different protocols, including SRT, RTSP, RTMP, HLS, RTP, TS-UDP, NDI|HX via H.264/H.265 or NDI, or baseband SDI or HDMI.
The foundation of the KILOVIEW ecosystem is the NDI CORE system, which stands for Control, Organize, Route, and Everything. With any or all of the KILOVIEW devices, users can manage up to thousands of signal sources with smooth and seamless switching.
The KILOLINK Server, the NDI CORE, the KILOVIEW Intercom Server and the Multiview Server, combined with the NDI Recorder, can provide a total solution for IP-based video transmission, and serve customers in broadcast, education, enterprise, house of worship or sports, looking for cost-effective solutions for their live streaming and remote production needs.
