BirdDog - 'Flex 4K IN'
Full NDI Encoder
The Smallest 4K NDI EverThe BirdDog 4K NDI IN is the smallest of its kind. Flex offers everything you would imagine from BirdDog’s one cable solution including Tally, Audio Intercom, Video, Audio, PTZ Control, and Power all down a single Ethernet cable.
• Compact Build with HDMI 2.0 Input
• Thermal design to withstand the hottest conditions
• Built in Halo Tally system with no configuration required
• 4K System allows 300Mbps or 3 streams with extra headroom
Small Is The New Big
Small Design, Big ResultAt a size just a bit bigger than a credit card, the Flex 4K NDI encoders and decoders are the smallest of its kind.
Don’t let its size fool you as it delivers amazing results whilst being incredibly efficient.
Clever Thermal Design
Heat ResistantWith a unique thermal design the Flex 4K NDI is built to withstand some of the hottest conditions and under direct sunlight with two almost silent fans working away to keep the unit cool, cleverly built in on the side panel of the NDI.
Now With Added Power
15w Extra PowerBirdDog’s revolutionary Studio NDI introduced NDI, Power, Video, Audio, Tally, and Audio Intercom all done by just one Ethernet cable.
Flex 4K IN and Flex 4K BACKPACK take it even further by providing an extra 15w of additional power giving you the ability to use the DC output to power your monitor, recorder, or even your camera.
Zero ConfigurationFlex’s unique Halo Tally system comes built right into the Flex Family and it doesn’t require any configuration when connected with any NDI enabled software-based production system.
The Halo Tally is designed to be seen by the camera operators as well as the talent on air.
The Ideal PTZ Assistant
A Perfect Upgrade For Your PTZ CameraIf you dont own a BirdDog PTZ camera with full NDI natively then Flex can become the perfect add-on.
Plug in HDMI to encode stunning and Full NDI, and attach a PTZ control cable to have PTZ passthrough control. An ideal upgrade for your PTZ camera.
Adaptive Bit Rate
Slide your way to successFull NDI® is a variable bit rate codec. In normal circumstances BirdDog suggests allowing around 140Mbps in HD, or 6 streams per 1GbE cable with some headroom.
In 4K it is ideal to allow around 300Mbps or 3 streams with some headroom to allow for any unpredicted spikes.
