NewTek is honored to announce that Future plc’s AV Technology brand has selected NewTek Connect Spark™ Pro, 4K 60p HDMI-to-NDI® converter as a Best of Show winner at InfoComm 2018. Connect Spark Pro turns any compatible 4K (UHD) device into an IP video source instantly. The signal is translated to full-bandwidth NDI, NewTek’s royalty free bi-directional IP technology for transporting video, audio, metadata and communications over standard networks, and any NDI-aware device on the network can automatically detect and use the source. No complex configuration or excessive cabling is required.
“This year’s strong field of entries is emblematic of the current outpouring of innovation in our industry,” said Matt Pruznick, content director of AV Technology. “The bounty of these companies’ engineering, research and development, and user design efforts were on full display on the show floor, and narrowing the field down to a select group of winners was not an easy task. I offer my heartiest congratulations to the winning companies, and look forward to seeing how their products help technology managers transform their facilities over the coming years.”
AV Technology selects its Best of Show list from an exhibition of thousands of solutions showcased by more than 950 manufacturers. The products selected represent outstanding achievements in product development. Six AV professionals, including CTS-certified technology managers and AV/IT engineers, judged each product live on the show floor on days one and two of InfoComm.
