#NABShow 2017: NewTek & Vizrt Announces the Release of the NVG1!

NEWTimagesNewTek and Vizrt have announced the release of the NVG1 (the NewTek and Vizrt IP Graphics Server)! This joint venture will provide consumers a real time 4K capable 3D graphics system that is solely designed with the NewTek IP series and new TriCaster TC1 in mind. The design is framed around the NewTek 1RU server platform and the NDI™ IP video connectivity with the industry-leading Viz Trio/Viz Engine software.

A demonstration of the NewTekVizrt integration will be showcased at the NewTek Booth #SL5016 during NAB 2017 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, April 24-27, 2017.

“Graphics are a huge part of the look and feel of any video production,” said Brian Olson, vice president of product management for NewTek. “In addition to delivering uncompromised 4K IP video production, it makes sense to provide our customers with access to the most in-demand, prolific real-time 3D graphics system in the industry. By keeping the graphics totally in the IP domain, we maximize quality, and provide users with an unprecedented level of control directly from the NewTek system UI.”

The NVG1’s graphics utilizes NewTek‘s NDI (Network Device Interface) IP video standards that transfer video, Vizrt_Article_Placeholderaudio, key, control and metadata over a bi-directional GigE supported infrastructure via network cable. The systems are available single or dual channel and supports resolutions up to [email protected]! An added bonus to the system is that all NVG1’s will ship with user customized graphic packages from Polygon Labs

“Partnering with NewTek on the NVG1 was a natural extension of our business,” said David Jorba, president of Vizrt Americas. Vizrt was an early adopter of NewTek’s IP video interface, and we’ve always had a great relationship. It became obvious as our core markets started to converge with the introduction of the NewTek IP Series and TriCaster TC1, both IP-native and 4K-capable, that a strategic alliance made perfect sense. NewTek customers wanting to have our market-leading real-time 3D graphics as part of their production will now be able to have a complete system from a single vendor.”

Availability & Pricing

The NVG1 – NewTekVizrt IP Graphics Server in both single and dual channel configurations is expected to be available in Q2, 2017 in the Americas region only at this time. Please contact your NewTek representative for pricing details.
