From the planet’s largest broadcasters to billions of smartphone users with a story to tell, NDI 5 makes it possible, for the first time in history, to connect to any device, in any location, anywhere in the world - allowing it to work with almost any video application in the world. Physical studios can connect to ones in the cloud and remote video production effectively becomes local.
“NDI is designed to harness the massive creative potential of software and networks, allowing anyone to work with video - and have fun doing it. All devices in the world are already connected. Now with NDI 5, you can easily build shows and share video between them, for free,” said Dr. Andrew Cross, president of Research and Development for the Vizrt Group.
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.
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.
Additional Features of NDI 5:
● NDI Audio Direct: Provides seamless integration of NDI audio into software-based audio workflows, be they across a local network, in the cloud or hybrid, setting your production free from the limitations of hardware audio mixers
● Reliable UDP: As part of NDI’s mission to make video easier everywhere, RUDP transfer makes WAN and WiFi connections more resilient with less configuration required

● Improved Adobe Premiere and Final Cut Pro support: Adobe Premiere and After Effects plugin now features improved audio workflow. Updated plug-in allows output for Final Cut Pro with real-time audio and video frame buffer output
● And Much More: Many other benefits are available, including support for genlock - even remotely, selection of network adapters, and more
