NEWT - COMPACT UHD-OVER-IP SDI / HDMI SIGNAL CONVERSION

Newt easily adapts to our rapidly changing IP environments. This is the first product species that brings to life compact, quiet and robust UHD-over-IP SDI/HDMI signal conversion. Newt is fluent in many open control protocols such as NMOS, EmBER+, and DashBoard (to name but a few), thus giving you the freedom to throw this little guy down into the IP environment of your choice.

Compact & Robust 
Compact & robust signal conversion and processing of many formats from HD to UHD.

Open Control 
Open control gives you the freedom to run Newt from our DashBoard™ control system, and/or seamlessly from many 3rd-party control systems (e.g. VSM, Magellan, …).

Goes Anywhere!
Flexible mounting options enable Newt to scale any wall, zip-tie to a post, hide under a desk, behind a display, or for three of them to sit comfortably on an optional rack shelf.

Software Defined 
What you need, when you need it: software defined processing enables multiple uses and functions. Pay only for what you need thanks to our flexible licensing options.

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

Quiet 
Newt is the strong silent type, with studio applications in mind. Unlike other IP conversion products with fans that scream loudly, you’ll barely hear a purr from Newt.
