TwitchCon Content Captured and Combined Using NewTek IP Series

Publish date:

Twitch, a leading social video platform and community for gamers, partnered with NewTek for content management and delivery at TwitchCon 2016, an annual convention that celebrates the Twitch community. Using the NewTek IP Series software-driven, modular video production system, Twitch combined video sources from HD-SDI cameras, gaming consoles and graphics across an in-house network, creating a single interconnected production environment.

“This is our first major event working with NewTek IP Series, and it’s incredible to not have to worry about how many inputs we have on our switcher,” says Adam Contini, video production manager at Twitch.

“We have such a variety of content and video sources to manage. The biggest benefit has been using the NDI scan converter to send PC feeds out to the switcher without using SDI cables. With IP Series, we’re even pulling feed from arcade machines with an input module and Ethernet feed instead of an SDI cable,” adds Josh Shaw, video producer at Twitch. “It’s been indistinguishable whether our feeds are coming through NDI or SDI.”

“Twitch is constantly growing, and this is only the beginning,” Contini concludes. “Now we’re only limited by our imagination.”
