NDI (Network Device Interface) is a new open standard for live production IP workflows over Ethernet networks. NDI allows systems and devices to identify and communicate with each other, and to encode, transmit, and receive high quality, low latency, frame-accurate video and audio over IP in real time.
Broadcast studios, houses of worship, even corporate AV all benefit from the new NDI 5 codec. The list of manufacturers who have adopted NDI is growing daily providing a plethora of cameras, switchers, controllers, converters and more to choose from.
Traditionally, IP-based audio and video workflows required costly equipment and complex configuration settings at the production end. As such, creation of high-quality audio/video content was restricted to professional studios. The NETGEAR AV Line of M4250 switches with its new, easy-to-use web interface combined with NDI software greatly reduce the cost and complexity associated with audio and video workflows. With NETGEAR and NDI, content creators can focus on telling a better story and not worry about getting to a professional studio or deal with the traditional AV workflow technology.
