I would love to see a Spark like the ATEM Camera Converter.

https://www.blackmagicdesign.com/products/atemconverters/techspecs/W-ATC-01

Both SDI and HDMI loop through and on the loop-out to an external monitor, it would show green or red borders around the frame like tally. Also an option to see PGM via the loop-out to external monitor all on NDI. Built in Battery power and DTAP or PTAP adpater or a sled option to add on Sony or Canon batteries for extended durations. Last would be intercom capability for a headset.

Something like Unity Intercom built into a TriCaster or as a stand alone app to setup partylines that would save setups per project.

This would be huge!

Jef,

One thing that would be great to add would be a simply 1 port switch as well. Have an input AND an output for the lan. This is where the Spark requires us to have a small switch when we run our laptop through it. I doubt people will be using the awesome NDI Viewfinder for just a laptop, but I don;t think it would add much to the cost or take up much space internally. - Just a thought... Keep up the awesome work!

Already been thinking about it for Version2.
