NDI 5 Ushers In New Chapter For the Software-Defined IP Video Standard

NDI Bridge, NDI Remote highlight list of new products tied to the NDI 5 debut

NDI, a brand of Vizrt Group, announced version 5 of its popular free software protocol for video over IP today. NDI 5 promises to deliver efficient, IP-based video delivery over existing networks.

NDI’s optimized codec and transport protocols also provide seamless integration of NDI audio into software-based audio workflows, be they across a local network, in the cloud or hybrid, RUDP transfer – making WAN and WiFi connections more resilient, and full support for Apple-based devices as well as improved Adobe Premiere and Final Cut Pro support.

NDI is designed to harness the massive creative potential of software and networks, allowing anyone to work with video – and have fun doing it,” Dr. Andrew Cross, president of Research and Development for the Vizrt Group said in an official release. All devices in the world are already connected. Now with NDI 5, you can easily build shows and share video between them, for free.”

NDI Bridge
New to the NDI Tools free download with NDI 5 is NDI Bridge. Forming a secure bridge between any NDI network regardless of location, NDI Bridge redefines the concept of ‘remote workflows,’ opening up a wealth of new opportunities for live video production.

NDI Remote
Also new to NDI Tools, NDI Remote allows anyone using just a URL to contribute live audio and video using an Internet-connected device, like a camera phone or a web browser, to another point anywhere in the world. NDI Remote allows anyone, anywhere to contribute to a show – big or small.

The NDI 5 SDK and NDI Tools will be available for download later this month.
