About NDI®

Making IP video a reality for you…

NDI® harnesses the power of Software, Computers, and Networks to make video creation and sharing accessible and fun for millions, helping fuel the software defined visual storytelling revolution. NDI makes video a standard part of every computer network, from common IT implementations to mobile environments and has changed the picture- giving everyone access to easy-to-use, high-quality video using the equipment they have today.

Make Video Simple

NDI® moves live digital media around with your existing software applications, computing devices, and networks using what you already have.

  • Enables systems, devices, and applications to connect and communicate over IP to share video, audio, and data.
  • Adds connected devices to networks at television stations, webcasting facilities, homes, offices, or out on the street with simple discovery.
  • Gets live video moving across your network with Windows, Mac, and Linux software applications by just downloading NDI® tools for capture, monitoring, test, and control at no charge.
  • Supports software and hardware used from school classrooms all the way up to network broadcasting from a wide variety of NDI partners.
  • Works on all networks and even in the cloud, on local and global networks providing the highest quality video at the lowest latency.

Scale up capacity

NDI® empowers even small teams of creatives to achieve big show results, as there are no limitations from specialized upgrades, networks, or hardware.

  • Provides multiple video sources to work simultaneously on Gigabit Ethernet networks, and grows to 10Gbit and beyond for massive scaling up to almost unlimited streams and resolutions.
  • Accommodates multiple NDI® video, audio, and metadata streams on a shared connection using standard network infrastructures.
  • Uses WiFi networks as another complementary path to make smartphones, tablets, and other compatible products NDI® sources and destinations.
  • Integrates into software applications and tools created by developers or by users at no cost.

Mix different media

To keep your productions looking good NDI® preserves visual quality, frame accuracy, and source synchronization.

  • Achieves high quality imagery with full 16bpp video color depth support.
  • Works with any resolution, aspect ratio, and frame rate and formats including 4K UHD and beyond.
  • Supports embedded alpha channel for keying along with proxy, control, tally, custom metadata, and precision time stamps.
  • Extends to mobile integration using mobile devices as sources and streaming out to websites and social media platforms.
  • Includes audio requirements with support for 48kHz, 96kHz and beyond using 16, 32, and 64 channels or more.
  • Utilizes computers, webcams, media players, and media applications as NDI sources.
  • Interoperates with other standards including SDI and SMPTE ST 2110 enabling mixing all types of video delivery methods together.

Connect all activities

NDI® is an elegant solution that merges all stages of production from start to finish, so all your production tasks and processes are united to accomplish your creative vision.

  • Captures multiple sources to view, hear, mix, record, store, and edit productions.
  • Operates bi-directionally so every source is also a destination, and any NDI® enabled system or device connected to the network is seen using standard IP transfer methods.
  • Records sources with time stamping to provide multi-channel synchronization across inputs, systems, and locations making multi-cam production and multi-cam editing easy.
  • Provides a wide choice of products including cameras and converters to find everything needed for interconnected productions.
  • Sets the groundwork today for a future of greater mobile device usage with aspect ratio, frame rate, and resolution independence to address mobile device inputs and outputs.
