Pocket sized NDI®.

Big things come in small packages. Utilising BirdDog’s custom NDI® silicon chip and housed in aircraft grade aluminium case, Mini is the ultimate entry point into the world of NDI® Encoding and Decoding. Featuring HDMI inputs and outputs, Active Loop Outs, Audio Intercom System, NDI® Tally System, PoE, and compatibility with BirdDog’s Comms and Central Apps.



NDI Decoding. Get NDI® onto screens.

With world’s first NDI® Decoding in hardware, using BirdDog’s custom silicon chip, there has never been a faster or easier way to distribute content. Mini can see any Full NDI® content on the network and with BirdDog’s Web Console you can route that to Mini for HDMI output to a screen or projector. Perfect for Digital Signage, Sports Stadiums, House of Worship, IMAG, and any application that needs content on screens. Team up Mini with optional Central application and you have an incredibly easy to use yet unbelievably powerful content distribution system.

 

Full NDI®. No compromises.

In the world of NDI® there are two flavours, NDI® and NDI|HX. NDI® is a variable bit rate, I-Frame codec that is reaches around 140Mbits at 1080p60 and is visually lossless. NDI|HX is a compressed, long-GOP, H.264 variant that reaches around 12Mbits at 1080p60. Mini hardware only Encodes and Decodes Full YUV422 NDI®.

 

NDI® Encode or Decode. Total flexibility.

Built with total flexibility in mind, Mini can be configured as an NDI® Encoder or NDI® Decoder with a simple click of a button through the web console. In Encode Mode Mini is the perfect way to get your HDMI sources into the world of NDI® and supports up to1080p60.

Extreme Speed. It’s all about the silicon.

BirdDog’s revolutionary custom silicon chip is what drives the best NDI® products on the planet. Only BirdDog’s hardware can do line-based processing to give the fastest possible NDI® Encoding or Decoding technically possible.

 

Tally. It just works.

The world’s first NDI® Tally system is built right into Mini and it requires zero configuration. Includes a built-in large Tally display for your on-air talent to easily see which camera is live, plus user selectable Tally borders on loop out, and an external Tally output.

 

PoE, DC, D-Tap. Up to you.

Mini 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.

Beautiful to touch. Tough as old boots.

When the fingers first touch the sensuous anodised aluminium case housing the multi-layered PCB board, it’s easier to imagine Mini on display within the Louvre in Paris than on a live video production set, but that is where the deception of the senses first takes place. The perfectly finished casing is actually aircraft grade aluminium and designed to withstand the rigours of life on the road.

 

VESA or Camera Mount. We got you.

With the optional VESA and Camera mounts Mini is extremely easy to mount where you need it. Use the VESA mount to attach to screens or simply attach the camera mount to add a ¼-20” thread for easy mounting with ball heads, magic arms, and other traditional mounting gear.

Free Comms Lite. Upgrade to Comms Pro.

Mini includes free Audio Intercom software, Comms Lite. Comms Lite supports four BirdDog devices and one Director.

Distribute NDI® content everywhere. Just add Central.

BirdDog Central is a software platform set to redefine the way we think about driving content to TV screens. By teaming up Central with any NDI® source, including all BirdDog hardware capable of creating NDI® sources, you can now drive your NDI® streams to any BirdDog Studio NDI or Mini to decode NDI® back to SDI or HDMI.
