AVerMedia today announced support for NewTek’s NDI, a software-driven live production IP workflow over Ethernet.
NewTek’s royalty free NDI technology allows video and audio sources to be shared bi-directionally across a network, claiming to eliminate the need for costly direct connections, expensive cable runs, and infrastructure upgrades while utilizing every IP video source on the network instantly.
Coupling NDI with AVerMedia’s 4K PCIe capture card, live 4K video can be accessed over the network while the IP-based workflow simplifies the creation and distribution of high quality media production. The advantages of AVerMedia SDK incorporating NDI means network users accessing the 4K stream also gain AVerMedia 4K capture card’s video processing functionalities such as resolution scaling, de-interlacing and color-space conversion.
NDI can help build an efficient live video production IP workflow infrastructure over an Ethernet network. With AVerMedia NDI-ready products, users can produce, integrate and manage multiple 4K streams on-the-fly. Without negating current SDI solutions, producers may utilize their GbE Ethernet network and transform their facility into an IP video production studio.
