ProMAX Introduces NDI Direct Capture to Platform Storage Beta Testing

Share Article

NDI Direct Capture for Platform Storage allows users to skip the process of filtering media through capture software, getting them faster access to edit and manage files from NDI streams.

“The ProMAX Platform direct NDI capture allows our customers to easily capture, backup, tag and search for footage later with almost no interaction from the operator,"

ProMAX Systems, a world leader in integrated workflow technology for creative media organizations, proudly announces the launch of their NDI Direct Capture Beta Program for current customers. This new feature will streamline the process of capturing NDI streams by allowing users to capture them directly onto their Platform storage server.

In traditional NDI Capture, production teams need to filter their NDI streams through a capture software before having access to the video files. The traditional process eats up a large amount of network traffic and requires a high-performance workstation that can handle the amount of resources dedicated to the NDI Capture process. With NDI Direct Capture there is no need to filter the NDI streams through a capture software and they are sent directly to the ProMAX Platform server. By directly capturing the NDI streams to their storage device the network is not impacted and users still have full access to perform editing and rendering tasks. This process can even be initatied from a lower end workstation connected via WIFI or a VPN.

“The ProMAX Platform direct NDI capture allows our customers to easily capture, backup, tag and search for footage later with almost no interaction from the operator," says Nathaniel Cooper, COO, ProMAX. "If you want to find that clip from 2 months ago tagged “Eagles vs Warriors” you can do that without anyone needing to taking precious seconds during a live broadcast. This really opens up usability for many workgroups using NewTek products.”

ProMAX’s Beta program is currently available for current users that have a NewTek device and are running on the latest Platform software. ProMAX will be demoing NDI Direct Capture at IBC 2018 September 13-18th in Amsterdam, at RAI Amsterdam, Booth: 7.D55
