(Las Vegas, Nevada--April 20, 2016) GB Labs, the world’s leading manufacturer of Network Attached Storage (NAS), today announced its adoption of NewTek’s open Network Device Interface
(NDI™) standard for IP-based production workflows for its range of high speed, media specific storage. With NDI enabled, their Space product range will be recognizable as a source by other NDI-enabled devices and systems connected to a standard Ethernet local area network, exponentially increasing the number of video sources available for live production.
GB Labs’s Space storage range with NDI integrates seamlessly with NewTek’s TriCaster multi-camera video production systems. This allows production directors to pull from multiple data sources at speeds of up to 9,000MB/sec making this the World’s fastest NAS on the market. GB Labs’ storage has feature rich workflow tools built in to its Core operating system making for a compelling workflow.
This new standard for live production IP workflow is bi-directional and backwards compatible with a large number of devices from top manufacturers already utilizing NewTek’s open protocol allowing IP connectivity between devices. GB Labs’s Space storage range will be part of the NewTek Developer Network, the industry’s largest ecosystem of IP-enabled products using the same standard.
“The broadcast industry has been shouting out for an IP workflow solution’” said Ben Pearce, Vice President of GB Labs. “GB Labs are delighted to be involved with NewTek’s NDI Developer Network as they lead the way in IP workflow solutions.”
“IP workflows look to revolutionize video production,” said Michael Kornet, executive vice president of Business Development for NewTek. “GB Labs is highly respected both at NewTek and within the industry. By GB Labs enthusiastically embracing NDI, best-of-breed products like Space will help make NDI the most widely adopted IP standard on the market that’s working and in the hands of customers today.”
NDI is now available as a royalty free software developer kit (SDK) for any company looking to establish IP workflows within their organization, or in production tools and systems they manufacture.
