NDI (Network Digital Interface) technology has been developed by NewTek, it is made available to anyone with a royalty-free license, and has been widely adopted by many broadcast vendors. NDI is becoming a de facto standard in the live production industry. NDI revolutionizes video production workflow by removing the physical I/O constraints of traditional broadcast infrastructure. Any NDI-enabled device on the network can see and access content from all other devices, allowing more sources than ever before to be used for live production.
NDI 3.0 is the third iteration of the NDI SDK which is improves greatly on an already simple workflow with enhanced encoding performance, multicast support with FEC (Forward Error Correction), standardized PTZ control commands and tally, and the addition of a high efficiency mode, NDI|HX, which allows cameras to enter the NDI world.
NDI is designed to run over existing 1 Gigabit networks, allowing easy adoption of the protocol without new infrastructure. This is achieved through the use of video compression with the NDI|HX codec, which delivers 1080 Full HD video at data rates typically around 15Mbps. NDI|HX is a 4:2:0 8-bit codec, based on H.264 compression. It supports 1080p and 720p, at different frame rates. Factory default mode is 1080/25p at 10Mbps
The AW-HN40 series of integrated full HD cameras perform in a wide variety of onsite shooting applications that require high-quality video, such as conferences, lecture capture and other events, thanks to its high-performance zoom, wide angle of view and outstanding colour reproducibility
In addition to IP video transmission, support for PoE+ enables power to be supplied via a LAN cable.
The result is installation flexibility. It also supports HD-IP video output, output of video and audio via USB, and SD card recording.
What is NDI HX? Why is it taking the world by storm? Can it replace SDI and HDMI? What manufacturers are involved? When you search ‘What is NDI HX?’ on Google, you get this answer:
Panasonic Media Entertainment Company today announced the introduction of a full line-up of professional integrated cameras with built-in Network Device Interface (NDI) support: the AW-HN38, AW-HN40, AW-UN70 and AW-HN130. This fully integrated support of NDI version 3 enhanced with a new High Efficiency Mode allows users to connect these Panasonic professional PTZ cameras directly to an NDI network, with automatic detection by the NewTek TriCaster® and NewTek’s IP Series of professional video switchers, as well as to seamlessly integrate with the hundreds of other NDI-capable products in the marketplace, enabled on millions of NDI-capable computer systems.
