NDI - Network
Device Interface is the foundation of NewTek’s Advanced IP
Workflow. Anyone can implement NDI to make devices available
as video sources or destinations over a LAN, using our
sophisticated encoding and communication methods that
provide unsurpassed efficiency over standard networking
Advanced IP Workflow, producers can receive and switch any
video source enabled on the LAN—with an exponential twist:
our “network effect” also recognizes the video sources
connected to other production switchers too. Multiply
creativity to include more sources. Wherever they are.
Location and distance are
no longer obstacles. You don’t have to directly
attach devices, wrangle cables when changing
locations, or sacrifice sources for limited hardware
inputs. You can even borrow inputs from other
switchers in the facility and switch them from a
different location, all over the network.
Our native encoding
process, perfected over years of developing IT-based
production systems, delivers any resolution and
format as low-latency, frame-accurate video
virtually indiscernible from the signal viewed
directly from the camera.
dual-10Gbps Ethernet networks typical of many
emerging IP architectures, a standard GigE LAN
infrastructure is all that’s needed to accommodate
NewTek’s efficient, live IP video workflow. Do more
productions, save more money.
TRY IT FIRST IN TRICASTER.
The first step in enabling your existing production for the
IP future is already here. TriCaster customers who upgrade
to TriCaster Advanced Edition software enabled with NDI
unlock IP connectivity for each existing camera input (and
gain four new IP inputs) to grow any production immediately.
What’s more, now you can see and switch inputs and outputs
from any other updated TriCaster—and other compatible
developer solutions—on your network.
