back

no complex setup processFlex's ground-breaking ‘Halo Tally’ system is built right into the Flex Family and needs no complex configuration once connected to any NDI enabled, software based, production system. The ‘Halo Tally’ was designed to be seen by the camera operators as well as the on-air talent.

variable bit rate codecFull NDI is a variable bit rate codec. Under regular circumstances, BirdDog recommends allowing for around 140Mbps in HD, or 6 streams per 1GbE cable with some headroom. Once in 4K, it’s recommended to allow around 300Mbps or 3 streams with some headroom to allow for any unforeseen spikes.
