The 12X-NDI Broadcast and Conference Camera, in gray, from PTZOptics, allows you to output up to a 1080p60 signal simultaneously via HDMI, SDI, and NDI or IP outputs (NDI and IP share the same RJ45 port). The NDI protocol, NewTek's innovative IP technology, gives you low-latency access to audio and video devices anywhere on your network for various A/V applications. You won't be restricted to sources connected directly to a single system. The 12X-NDI comes with a NewTek NDI license, so you're set to go right out of the box. The camera also has a composite output that can be used on its own (without any of the other outputs at the same time) to deliver 576i/480i resolution.


The 12X-NDI has a 3.5 - 42.3mm lens providing a 12x zoom range which is ideal for smaller meeting rooms and classrooms. The NDI versions of the PTZOptics 12x cameras are ideal for streaming applications, houses of worship, sports streaming, live productions and events, and when cable runs might be an issue (when you'd rather run Ethernet cables instead of coax). The camera does well in low-light conditions owing to a fast f/1.8 - 2.8 lens aperture and minimum illumination requirement of only 0.5 lux. On top of this, built-in wide dynamic range and 2D and 3D noise reduction further enhance the conferencing experience. The camera is completely open-source, so developers can customize everything as they prefer using simple HTML.


The 12X-NDI can be powered over PoE or using the included power supply. It offers RS-232 and RS-485 serial control, an audio line-in for HDMI and NDI/IP streams, and 10 presets via the included IR remote control or 255 via serial or IP control.
