NewTek has announced the availability of the NewTek Connect Spark Pro video converter, the easiest, fastest and most flexible way to acquire beautiful looking 4K UHD video for IP-based productions.
Connect Spark Pro instantly translates 4K UHD video at up to 50 frames per second directly from a source into an NDI signal for use with any compatible device or software with near zero latency and without any complex configuration or excessive cabling required. Its portable, and camera-mountable design, HDMI connection, built-in tally lights, support for Power over Ethernet (PoE), and many other features allow Connect Spark Pro to integrate seamlessly into any production.
"The quality of the picture we're getting with Connect Spark Pro is simply mind blowing," said Dr. Andrew Cross, president and CTO for NewTek. "What's even better is that almost every 4K device has an HDMI connector, making Connect Spark Pro ideal for getting 4K signals onto the network quickly. This helps tremendously with cabling, distance, and cost limitations allowing content producers small and large to benefit from the advantages of 4K. Even if you are producing and distributing in HD, being able to leverage 4K cameras gives you better quality and lets you do virtual PTZ pan and scan moves simply and easily."
Combined with NewTek VMC1 or TriCaster TC1 multi-camera production systems with up to 44 and 16 channels respectively of true 4K/50fps video, Connect Spark Pro enables the most affordable, end-to-end 4K-production IP workflow on the planet.
