The NewTek Connect Spark HDMI is a Wi-Fi-capable IP video converter designed for the NewTek open-source NDI standard. It supports up to 1080p59.94 video and allows for remote recording to optional USB or microSD storage media. It can also be controlled via a web-based user interface for configuration and monitoring.

The NDI standard (Network Device Interface) allows all NDI-compatible video equipment to freely recognize and interact with one another, as long they're connected to the same network over Ethernet or Wi-Fi.

Connect Spark HDMI is designed to provide an ideal way to get HDMI video into a computer or IP-based video workflow. It allows you to convert any HDMI source for compatibility with hundreds of NDI-compatible systems, devices, and applications that can be connected on the same network, enabling you to efficiently incorporate that HDMI source into IP-based video capture and production workflows.

You won't need all the cables you normally would but can rather send and receive video to/from your computer through the network. (Your computer would need to be NDI-enabled, and this is easily done with NDI software such as Connect Pro, sold separately.)

As soon as you plug the Connect Spark to a network, the HDMI source connected to it will instantly become available as an input for any NDI-compatible hardware and software on the network.
