A message from BirdDog themselves..
Hello, Firstly thank you for your interest in BirdDog and our products. It’s truly humbling.
BirdDog started out in 2016 with a simple mission – to solve workflow problems and save our customers money by reducing the amount of equipment they need to buy. Our foundations are set in enabling the best images and 2019 saw us expand our range to include 4K Encoders and Decoders that we know you are going to love.
At IBC 2019 we are super proud to launch BirdDog Cloud, an encrypted and secure way to send NDI® across the public internet. The workflow possibilities that Cloud unlocks are almost limitless. The dream of sitting on a beach and doing a remote production can now be a reality!
Cloud is immediately available.
We invest a lot of time listening to our customers to understand their requirements in order to implement features and functions to simplify workflows. BirdDog was the first to release HD NDI® Encoders and Decoders and as our exciting product line drops we still feel like we are just getting started.
At BirdDog we pride ourselves on being approachable and easily contactable. We’d love to hear from you.
