The Smallest 4K NDI on the Planet.
4K NDI® in an incredibly small package. Flex delivers everything you have come to expect from BirdDog’s one cable solution including Tally, Audio Intercom, Video, Audio, PTZ Control, and Power all down a single Ethernet cable. With 3 models to choose from in the Flex Family is a Flex to perfect for your workflow needs.
Small is the new Big.
With a footprint only slightly larger than a credit card, the Flex 4K NDI Encoders and Decoders are the smallest on the planet. Because sometimes the biggest things are also the smallest.
Cool touch thermals.
Sometimes the biggest features are also the least obvious. Flex 4K NDI has unmatched thermal design and whisper quiet fans to keep Flex cool and fresh even on the hottest days and in direct sunlight.
One cable to rule them all.
Now with added power. BirdDog’s revolutionary Studio NDI gave the world NDI, Power, Video, Audio, Tally, and Audio Intercom all done a single Ethernet cable. Flex 4K IN and Flex 4K BACKPACK take it one step even further and provides an additional 15w extra power allowing you to use the DC output to power your monitor, recorder, or even your camera.
Halo Tally. It just works.
Flex’s revolutionary Halo Tally system is built right into the Flex Family and it requires zero configuration when connected with any NDI-enabled software based production system. The Halo Tally is designed to be seen by the camera operators as well as the on-air talent.
Adaptive bit rate.
Slide your way to glory. Full NDI® is a variable bit rate codec. In normal circumstances, BirdDog recommends allowing around 140Mbps in HD, or 6 streams per 1GbE cable with some headroom. In 4K it is recommended to allow around 300Mbps or 3 streams with some headroom to allow for any unforeseen spikes.
The ultimate PTZ sidekick.
If you aren’t lucky enough to own a BirdDog PTZ camera with full NDI natively then Flex can become the ultimate sidekick. Plugin HDMI to encode beautiful and Full NDI, and attach a PTZ control cable to have PTZ passthrough control. Perfect upgrade for your PTZ camera while waiting for Santa to bring you a BirdDog.
Flex 4K NDI family can support Dante input and output via the 3.5mm audio jack. Flip Dante out of the NDI stream or embed Dante into the NDI stream. The choice is yours.
100% Recyclable packaging.
We love Pachamama. Every element of Flex packaging is 100% recyclable and soy based ink is used to further reduce our foot print. There are no printed manuals inside the box, instead you can download the most up to date version anytime from our website.
The optional camera mount adds a 1-4”/20 female thread for mounting onto ball heads and magic arms to pimp your rig the way you want it.
