NewTek Connect Spark™ Pro is a portable IP video encoder that accepts an HDMI 2.0 video signal up to 4K UHD p60 from any supported camera or digital device, converts it to full-bandwidth NDI®, and makes it available for use with any compatible system, device, or application—anywhere on your network.
4K UHD to NDI:
Turn any compatible 4K UHD device into an IP video source instantly. Simply plug it into Connect Spark™ Pro, and the signal is translated to full-bandwidth NDI®. No complex configuration or excessive cabling required.
Get more sources from every signal with integrated Virtual PTZ functionality. Start with the full-resolution video image, define different areas of interest, then store as full-frame shot presets that you can switch or move between seamlessly.
Have your 4K UHD source available wherever you need it on your network. With the optional multicast mode enabled, the same NDI® output from your Connect Spark™ Pro can be served to multiple destinations simultaneously, saving valuable bandwidth.
Camera-mountable, with built-in tally lights and support for Power over Ethernet (POE), Connect Spark™ Pro integrates effortlessly into any professional production setup or studio environment.
