Compact UHD-OVER-IP SDI / HDMI Converter

A window into your IP media network.

Newt adapts to our rapidly changing IP environments, bridging Quad-SDI and HDMI 2.0 interfaces to JT-NM tested ST2110 media streams. Newt is fluent in NMOS, EmBER+, and DashBoard open standards protocols giving you the freedom to use it in the IP environment of your choice.

Powerful Conversion

Newt provides performance and reliability in a compact form factor. Convert and process SDI and IP signals from HD to UHD. Embed ST 2110-40 ANC streams into your SDI outputs. QUAD-SPLIT enables simultaneous viewing of four independent videos on a single HDMI 2.0 output and gearboxing lets you monitor SQD and 2SI UHD streams.

Open Control

Standards compliance gives you the freedom to run Newt from our popular DashBoard™ control system, Ultricore BCS or any preferred 3rd-party control system using industry standard protocols such as Ember+ and NMOS. Newt was designed with open control connectivity in mind.

Fit Anywhere

Space comes at a premium. A small form factor combined with flexible mounting options enables Newt to scale a wall, zip-tie to a post, hide under a desk or sit behind a display. Optionally, some may prefer the combination of three Newts lined up on a rack shelf.

Flexible Audio & Video Mapping

Live productions require dynamic audio and video distribution. NEWT’s one-to-many mapping allows assigning any IP flow to multiple outputs. It supports multiple audio streams per output adapting easily to any audio stream and channel structure. An integrated audio router allows easy shuffling and assigning of audio channels where needed.

Benchmark Interoperability

We are committed to ensuring that your investment in Ross products interoperates with third parties. Ross Video’s SMPTE ST 2110 technology is JT-NM Tested and amongst the most mature and widely deployed in the industry, both directly in Ross products and through its OEM & Developer Solutions program.
