NewTek and Panasonic simplify IP setup

Panasonic and NewTek have announced NewTek AutoLink™, a new software application which detects and automatically connects to network based PTZ cameras

The presence of IP cameras is automatically detected from NewTek TriCaster® and the IP Series Video Mix Engine. Cameras become immediately available for use in networked video production workflows without any additional configuration, saving valuable bandwidth and system resources.

NewTek AutoLink is PC based conversion software that allows camera control, NDI and streaming and is compatible with Panasonic PTZ cameras (AW-HE130, AW-HE40 and AW-UE70), as well as the company’s studio camera systems and 4K box camera (AK-UB300).

There is no restriction on the number of IP cameras that can be connected, ready to take live into production. Video translation and transmission is only initiated when the camera source is selected.

“Panasonic and Newtek’s mutual customers have asked us for quicker set up and easier integration as live studio customers have become increasingly diverse. Simple IP connectivity is the answer,” said Guilhem Krier, Head of Product Marketing & Business Development at Panasonic. “We are very excited to offer a real plug-and-play system between our cameras and the Newtek TriCaster, We hope that the easy operation will not only satisfy existing production customers’ requests but extend the market for our technologies in to streaming media.”

“NewTek and Panasonic share a vision of an IP workflow-driven production environment,” said Dr. Andrew Cross, president and CTO for NewTek. “The beauty is that you can connect as many IP cameras as needed – without using up all your available bandwidth.”

NewTek AutoLink enables the user to manage orientation, zoom, focus and iris of supported cameras, and store and recall camera presets, directly from the user interface or a compatible controller.
