Live switching—without limits.

Rethink connectivity, creativity and performance with the ultimate platform for modern video production: the NewTek IP Series Video Mix Engine. A true IP switcher powered by NewTek’s industry-leading, software-driven live production technology, the Video Mix Engine is where the systems, devices, applications, and sources in your workflow converge for mixing, compositing, and delivery with incomparable configuration and control.

Transformative Production. For Inspired Storytelling.

Embrace the new era of live production, integrating the Video Mix Engine into your current infrastructure to accommodate even the most ambitious modern workflows, including hybrid SDI/IP, exclusively IP, 4K Ultra HD, and fully virtualized production. With the Video Mix Engine driving your video operations, your productions will be no longer be defined by the limits of conventional equipment, technology, and processes – but by your vision, imagination and ingenuity.

Virtualization Made Real.

Don’t just aspire to virtualized production—achieve it. Unbound by proprietary hardware or transport workflow restrictions, the NewTek IP Series Video Mix Engine is the only live production engine that can operate within a virtualized environment—interconnecting with other compatible technologies through software and moving video across your network infrastructure as part of a fully realized production workflow that dramatically expands your opportunities to increase efficiency, flexibility, and productivity.
