Convert 4K video to and from NDI and 12G-SDI sources and destinations with the Spark Plus I/O 12G-SDI from NewTek. The Spark Plus I/O 12G-SDI is an IP video converter designed for the NewTek open-source NDI standard. It supports up to UHD 4K input and output from NDI to 12G-SDI and from 12G-SDI to NDI. It allows you to connect your camera, webcam, or computer to stream live over the internet or other broadcast platforms.

The Spark Plus 12G-SDI is controlled via a web-based user interface for configuration and monitoring. The Spark Plus also features a 3.5mm analog line-level stereo audio input for embedding as well as a 3.5mm analog line-level stereo output for de-embedding audio. The 12G-SDI signal supports 16-channel audio encoding and 8-channel audio decoding.

The NDI protocol allows all NDI-compatible video equipment to freely recognize and interact with one another, as long they're connected to the same network. The Spark Plus I/O 12G-SDI is designed to stream 12G-SDI video from a video source into a computer or IP-based video workflow for gaming, corporate meetings, broadcast programming, or other streaming media presentations.
