NewTek's NDI: A Path to IP Production

October 24, 2016 by Chuck Baker

Loren Blake of Broadcast Bridge opens his analysis of the implications of NewTek NDI with this note:

If the move to IP-based production was the marching order at September’s IBC convention, NewTek’s NDI (Network Device Interface) seemed to be the drummer, with dozens of companies announcing they are using it to translate SDI (Serial Digital Interface) video into IP (Internet Protocol) video. The cost savings of switching from SDI to video over IP, along with the benefits of bi-directional communication and packetized data delivery have long been a tempting lure, and, after all, that’s the way all computer devices talk to each other already.

But NewTek made the temptation even more irresistible by giving away the SDK (Software Development Kit) for their NDI technology for free.

Blake goes on to cover the advantages of IP for video production, and includes a look into Dr. Andrew Cross’s view that multiple standards for IP video are a good thing for production.
