Complete access, control, and creativity over IP.
Release your video productions from the technical and physical limitations of standard broadcast infrastructures. Easily transition to video over IP with NDI, NewTek’s innovative Network Device Interface technology, and ready-to-use software enabling interconnected production workflows.
Remove Routing Constraints
Produce your shows in a completely new way—using sources from all over your network, not just what’s physically patched into your SDI video router. NewTek NDI is a royalty free standard anyone can implement to connect video equipment across a network. Your production switcher, capture system, media server—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.
Reduce Costs (and Deployment Time)
Forget about investing in completely new facilities, networks, or signal infrastructures. NewTek NDI is built on a sophisticated foundation that can send and receive vast amounts of information using a familiar standard: the Ethernet-based LAN. With NDI’s unprecedented encoding efficiency and performance, your network can accommodate multiple simultaneous, high-quality, ultra-low latency video streams.
A whole new production environment
In a single, interconnected production environment, where any device can connect to every other device—and every source is also a destination—live production has limitless possibilities.
The future of live production is at NewTek today. Get started with NDI.
Envision New Workflows
If affordable, everyday IT systems can communicate with each other, sending and receiving data across a network, why should video production over IP be any different? NDI is more than an IP-based replacement for SDI, sending a one-way signal to a switcher. It’s a bi-directional standard, not only enabling you to share video and audio over IP, but to send and receive multiple input and output signals between devices on your network—making a completely connected facility entirely possible.
Leap into the Future Today
Future-proof your production environment, taking advantage of technology advancements, while protecting your current investments. Compatible with existing SDI and IP-based technologies, and independent of changing specifications and formats, NDI will also support integration with ASPEN, SMPTE 2022, and other emerging standards. And with a license-free SDK, developers and video producers can make any of their computer-based production devices IP-ready, joining hundreds of companies that have adopted NDI and incorporated it into solutions that are currently in the hands of millions of users.
Transition to video production over IP.
Using your existing equipment, network, and NewTek NDI video production software, you can start producing video over IP immediately.
Use more devices, applications and files in your workflow, switch more content into your shows, organize your NDI sources, and more with NDI Tools.

What The Industry Is Saying
Adobe Pro Video
“Adobe Creative Cloud users appreciate our advanced tools which help them be their most creative. NewTek NDI for the Adobe Creative Cloud plug in delivers the efficiency that content creators need to help them do great work in today’s fast-paced production environments. It also opens the door for editors and producers who want to bring the streamlined power of Adobe Premiere Pro CC into their live production workflows.“
— Sue Skidmore, Head of Partner Relations
JVC Professional Video
“NewTek’s initiative to unify video-over-IP protocols to create plug-and-play environment for various products and platforms cannot be underestimated. JVC pioneered streaming camcorders more than 10 years ago and now, we are very excited to bridge our complete product line of professional cameras with NDI protocol. Our customers who are already enjoying the ability to move broadcast-quality video over IP will greatly benefit from our collaboration with NewTek.”
— Edgar Shane, General Manager of Engineering
“With over 40 global installations of Evertz SDVN, the addition of NDI support will expand that install base. By supporting NDI, media companies deploying IP live production can leverage an open architecture that handles small webcast productions to large UHD productions seamlessly. The inclusion of NDI in our SDVN solution also maintains our commitment to support open formats that are proven to work including ASPEN (SMPTE RDD37) and SMPTE 2022-x series of standards.”
— Eric Fankhauser, VP of Product Development
“IP workflow is the next revolution for the broadcasting industry and organizations need to be able to transition affordably and with partners that are here to stay. By incorporating the NDI-enabled LU2000 into their workflow, organizations can produce, integrate, and manage their video content more efficiently and cost-effectively. We wholeheartedly support ND as the IP standard.”
— Avi Cohen, LiveU Co-Founder
“NewTek's breakthrough NDI standard changes everything. It discards the rigid constraints that yesterday's hardware defined. For us, it's like oxygen — the possibilities just open up. We can do so much more and yet give customers uncluttered, direct workflows that are all the more powerful in their simplicity. Before NDI, delivering 16 channels of animated multi-layer production graphics was not possible in any reasonable form.”
— Todor Fay, CEO of NewBlue
“It is exciting to have over 60 video cards with different I/O options visible as sources in the large NDI ecosystem, creating new ways of thinking and working. NewTek NDI users will also gain access to SMPTE-2022-6 and in the future to other IP standards such as VSF TR-03 and ASPEN.”
