BirdDog Central Pro allows you to decode an NDI source back to SDI or HDMI. When working with any full NDI source, you can drive your NDI streams to any BirdDog Studio NDI or BirdDog Mini receiver to decode NDI back to baseband video. Central Pro is Windows-compatible and also supports Windows touchscreen capability.
Send Anywhere with Three Clicks
Get NDI content onto your screens by simply selecting your source, selecting your destination, and clicking "Apply".
Drive Content to Multiple Screens via Groups
You can instantly drive content to multiple screens via Central Pro by grouping your BirdDog NDI decoders. Gang up 10, 20, or even hundreds of receivers and push the NDI content to your group with just three clicks. To create the groups, simply select any of the BirdDog receivers in your destination windows to assign to a group.
Work with Any Full NDI Source
Central Pro allows you to work with any full NDI source on your network, whether it is a feed from a live BirdDog PTZ camera, a BirdDog encoder, a file playing off a computer, or the output from an NDI-compatible switcher. Any of your NDI sources will show up in Central Pro, and you can push them to your BirdDog Studio NDI or BirdDog Mini to decode the signal back to baseband video.
Central Pro features a large live video preview window that allows you to easily monitor any NDI source. Simply click the list button and select any NDI stream on the network to bring it up in the Program Monitor window.
Central Pro is compatible with all BirdDog hardware-generated NDI sources including BirdDog Studio NDI, BirdDog Mini, and BirdDog's PTZ line. These will show up automatically in your source windows and you can then chose which destinations to send them to.
Central Pro can be operated by touchscreen when used on a Windows 10 Pro-enabled touchscreen computer or tablet.
