    Spark - HX vs NDI,...

    Place yer votes - if you could swap a Spark from NDI-HX to the full all-i-frame NDI, would you ?

    I for one would love to see it as an option in the settings, maybe with a warning for needing a decent network connection to garuntee operation.

    Spark HDMI and SDI units only have a 100Mbps ethernet connection so that could not happen

    The chipset in the Spark HDMI and SDI cannot support the 'full bandwidth' type of NDI, it isn't capable of being reprogrammed to that level. If you need a NDI (non HX) solution, Spark Pro is the product.

    There isn't any converter product that supports both NDI and NDI-HX, some people might need both solutions based on the kind of needed workflows.

    All i-frame h264 as used on many Canon DSLR's tops out at 50mbits, Panasonic cameras can push higher.
    A 100mbits connection is more then enough overhead for a single HD connection.
    The monitoring software in the Ubiquiti networking gear we use reports the WiFi connection to the Sparks as 150mbits.

    I'd bet on one of the Chinese convertor mobs already working on a version of their RTSP products that will support both forms of NDI.
