BirdDog Announces SDM Family Powered by BirdDog OS

BirdDog, a leading manufacturer of NDI tools has today announced the launch of the SDM Family, powered by BirdDog OS. BirdDog SDM Family, built upon the industry standard Intel® SDM platform is the most integrated and scalable NDI® to screen solution available. Without the need for wall boxes or patch panels, AV distribution is directly integrated within the display.

SDM Family features include:

• BirdDog OS, a complete Operating System for Intel® SDM platforms for distributing NDI®

• Planned support for Dante

• Crestron control library

• RESTful API for automation

• Resolution support up to 4Kp60

• Two models:

o M1 for NDI® sending and receiving based on Intel SDM-L module; and

o M2 for NDI® receiving based on Intel SDM-S module

Featuring a Crestron control library and a RESTful API, programming automation into the SDM Family is easy. Dante support will allow for smooth integration into a plethora of audio systems.

“BirdDog OS really feels like the culmination of all our technology coming together. It incorporates all our research and development over the last 4 years throughout the entire operating system," said Dan Miall, BirdDog Co-Founder and CEO.

"It’s incredibly intuitive and we are confident it’s going to create some beautiful and elegant installations. We are eager to see how our integrators deploy this solution.”

BirdDog SDM Family is being showcased for the first time at ISE and is scheduled to start shipping December 2020.

• Soft glow status that is customisable in the Web GUI

Wallplates are built upon BirdDog’s custom NDI chip and can be totally automated via the newly released RESTful API, feature PoE for single Ethernet cable functionality, Mic Input, Speaker output, interchangeable faceplates, soft glow status indicators, and an easy to use web management console to change settings.

Designed to be flush-mounted inside walls, lecterns, and boardroom tables, NDI Wallplates are the perfect solution for new builds and retrofitting in large education campuses, office buildings, hospitals, stadiums, conference centres, hotels, casinos, houses of worship, government and military buildings, broadcasters, and any facility where distributed content is required.

“Since its inception, NDI has been blazing the path for content distribution as an alternative to easy to deploy Gigabit Ethernet networks,” said Dan Miall, BirdDog Co-Founder and CEO. “Here at BirdDog we are always pushing the boundaries of this technology and are excited about its possibilities. With the release of NDI Wallplates, we believe the vision of NDI as a true distribution format has come to fruition.”

NDI Wallplates are a modular design allowing shell installation in advance meaning AV installers simply clicking in the electronics. NDI Wallplates are PoE so it’s truly a single cable installation using Ethernet for power, video, and audio.
