Power from anywhere
We have your bases covered when it comes to power. Bird Dog Studio can accept power input form the Ethernet cable via PoE technology.
Don’t have a PoE network infrastructure? No worries, simply power via D-Tap or V/Gold-mount battery plate options with power pass-through.
Central fleet control
Control and configure multiple Bird Dog Studios devices through our admin panel which is accessible via a web browser on both mobile devices and desktop.
SDI and HDMI outputs are always live allowing you to convert from SDMI to HDMI and vice versa. Connect a monitor to Bird Dog Studio or simply use to loop out.
Selectable Tally borders (both program and preview) along with information displays highlighting which NDI receivers are currently receiving signals are available as overlays to a preview monitor.
We’re working all the time and as additional features are made available we will release these at no cost.
