Big things come in small packages. Utilising BirdDog’s custom NDI silicon chip and housed in aircraft grade aluminium case, Mini is the ultimate entry point into the world of NDI Encoding and Decoding. Featuring HDMI inputs and outputs, Active Loop Outs, Audio Intercom System, NDI Tally System, PoE, and compatibility with BirdDog’s Comms and Central Apps.

NDI Decoding

With world’s first NDI Decoding in hardware, using BirdDog’s custom silicon chip, there has never been a faster or easier way to distribute content. Mini can see any Full NDI® content on the network and with BirdDog’s Web Console you can route that to Mini for HDMI output to a screen or projector. Perfect for Digital Signage, Sports Stadiums, House of Worship, IMAG, and any application that needs content on screens. Team up Mini with optional Central application and you have an incredibly easy to use yet unbelievably powerful content distribution system.

Full NDI. No compromises

In the world of NDI there are two flavours, NDI and NDI|HX. NDI is a variable bit rate, I-Frame codec that is reaches around 140Mbits at 1080p60 and is visually lossless. NDI|HX is a compressed, long-GOP, H.264 variant that reaches around 12Mbits at 1080p60. Mini hardware only Encodes and Decodes Full YUV422 NDI.

NDI Encode or Decode. Total flexibility

Built with total flexibility in mind, Mini can be configured as an NDI Encoder or NDI Decoder with a simple click of a button through the web console. In Encode Mode Mini is the perfect way to get your HDMI sources into the world of NDI and supports up to1080p60.

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. With BirdDog’s tools you can select the bit rate to suit your bandwidth and requirements. In both HD you can slide between 80-180Mbps and in 4K you can select the data rate to be anywhere between 60 and 360Mbps.
