The Studio Edge 5CH by Science Image is a high-density, multi-channel NDI converter in a compact 1U rack enclosure. A powerful combination of connectivity and performance is great for studios that need to manage many NDI sources and destinations in a single device. The Studio Edge series can also function as a display management system for digital signage, utilizing its integrated fiber connections to send and receive video and audio over long distances with no signal loss.

Powered by the same High-Bandwidth (Full) NDI encoding and decoding engine as the NDI Studio 4K.SH and STUDIO 2 stand-alone converters, the Studio Edge series delivers all the same connectivity as those devices in a rack-mountable chassis with a single power supply. Each channel features an independent power switch, LED display, tally light, video inputs and outputs, network connections, and audio ports.
