Bird-Dog Studio NDI

By connecting your video source to a BirdDog Studio NDI, your video becomes available anywhere on your network making connection to your favourite NDI production system a breeze.

Studio NDI is the world’s most versatile, camera mountable, NDI encoder. With so many features packed into an aircraft grade aluminium case, Studio NDI gives you an unrivalled feature set.


Studio NDI is the world’s only hardware based encoder supporting NDI at the full Bitrate. Broadcast quality. Ultra-low latency. iFrame codec. No compromises.


Studio NDI makes Tally easy. Zero configuration, built-in large Tally display, selectable Tally borders on loop out, and an external Tally output.


Studio NDI is the world’s only NDI Encoder offering hardware based SDI to HDMI and HDMI to SDI cross conversion.


Studio NDI can be powered by Power over Ethernet (PoE) or D-Tap from your camera battery. No need for a power adapter, although there is one in the box if you need it.


Link allows you to send NDI encoded from any BirdDog encoder and receive that NDI stream and decode on any BirdDog decoder. More compatible NDI sources will be added in the future.


Talk directly with camera operators using BirdDog Comms. Simply plug a headset in to Studio NDI and you are good to go.
