NewTek has announced their newest control panel, the Flex. Measuring 25 x 9.10 x 3.80 (63.5 x 23.1 x 9.6cm), the Flex control panel allows control of audio connections, audio and video mixing, PTZ devices, and talkback, all while taking advantage of NDI connectivity.
NewTek emphasizes that the Flex stands out by being the only one of their control panels that connects to a network via NDI to give complete control, giving operators more freedom and flexibility.

Chris McLendon, NewTek senior product manager, says: “Over the course of the last several years, the demand for high quality distributed production has grown beyond measure. We recognize the need for operators to be able to adapt to any workflow and the Flex does just that – all with the power of NDI. Offering greater control and connectivity than ever before, it’s our most flexible and powerful control panel yet.”
In addition to its native NDI connectivity, Flex is also TriCaster compatible, working with any existing TriCaster model. Of their new control panel, NewTek says: “The innovative features built into Flex offers operators greater precision and control than any other control panel available. With the addition of audio I/O, Flex instantly expands the on-board I/O of any TriCaster with the option to add external sources directly to the NDI ecosystem.”
