CAMBRIDGE, ON 04-17 – Bannister Lake’s recently released Chameleon software has been chosen by NewTek’s production team for use during NewTek’s NDI™ Central Live stream from NAB 2017.
The NDI- supported software will provide floor support as their ticker solution during the live webcast displaying news, events and social media related to NAB and NDI products. Including highlights from the NDI Central Live interviews and stage demonstrations, Chameleon will assist with the playout, operating like its own “channel” for the duration of NAB. The Chameleon screen is dynamic, providing targeted tweets, facebook postings, event listings, and NDI- related news items generated by the NDI Central Live staffers.
“It’s a very simple set up – an example of Bannister Lake’s continued push to create easy-to-use software with very little hardware, while using the popular NDI technology protocol. To set up an NDI stream, we need a computer with the project along with our Chameleon player. The player pulls data from our cloud or local instance. Then it’s an hour or so with a member of the NewTek team to go over the UI and how to enter things properly and get them going,” said Georg Hentsch, president, Bannister Lake Software.
“The “NDI Central Live” webcast will be streamed on ndicentral.com to highlight new products and workflows. Chameleon gives us an additional NDI source of dynamic content that will be fed remotely by staff at NewTek headquarters in San Antonio. It’s a nice enhancement to the production that will help us keep our viewers informed and engaged,” said. Rex Olson, vice president of VP eCommerce Business Development for NewTek.
Using the Chameleon Cloud instance, NewTek’s San Antonio production staff will have the ability to maintain and create content for their NDI Central Live ticker remotely from NewTek headquarters in San Antonio, allowing local personnel in Las Vegas full focus on the NAB production.
