NewTek launches the NDI® PTZ3 UHD Camera – coupling professional audio and pristine 4Kp60 for the first time
SAN ANTONIO, October 13th, 2022 — NewTek, the leader in IP-based video technology and part of the Vizrt Group, enhances its PTZ family of cameras by introducing the expertly engineered PTZ3 UHD. The PTZ3 UHD is the only NewTek 4Kp60 camera on the market that offers both professional audio and ultra-high-definition video – all built on the unshakeable foundation of NDI®.
The PTZ3 UHD allows video professionals, technology managers, and system designers to elevate video production by easily bringing 4Kp60 UHD video and professional audio, combined with control and tally, by using the network and simultaneously streamlining integration and installation by incorporating power over Ethernet (PoE).
“We understand the importance of and need for quality audio in any production workflow. By adding professional audio to the PTZ3 UHD – we combine the might of ultra-high-definition video and enhanced audio connectivity making it easier than ever to put this exceptional camera into any production workflow,” comments Will Waters, VP Product Management, NewTek.
For the first time in a UHD camera from NewTek, Professional XLR audio input seamlessly runs with equipment such as microphones, mixers, amplifiers, and soundboards. The Professional XLR integration offers clean, balanced audio directly from the camera into the NDI network, so the audio maintains the highest fidelity for customers and integrators.
To ensure users deliver high-quality images and video, the PTZ3 UHD takes pan/tilt/zoom quality to a new level with improved movement between camera presets. Ease-in and ease-out movements deliver seamless, smooth transitions for a natural, superior quality production without jittery or stuttering movements.
No other camera on the market offers this level of simplicity and control. Whether it’s using a single cable for audio and video, PTZ control, tally and PoE for power or connecting via NDI, NewTek PTZ Cameras simply appear on the network and can immediately be built into any workflow with ease.
Constructed with NDI® at its core, the PTZ3 UHD guarantees the tightest integration with any NewTek live production system and any NDI® workflow – offering professional audio, pristine 4Kp60 and infinite production possibilities.
