NewTek NDI Connect (Free)

Expand your sources — connectivity options — with only a standard computer serving up video over IP with the NDI protocol, NewTek’s innovative Network Device Interface technology.

Install the free NewTek Connect application on a compatible computer on the network, and access any individual camera, deck, or device connected via capture card, or increase your camera count with a local webcam. Any compatible source connected to the computer with NewTek Connect installed can be configured and made available to your TriCaster® and other NDI systems over the network.

This NDI production application allows you to configure a host computer as a dual-channel video system, with stereo audio and support for capture cards from AJA, Blackmagic Design, DELTACAST and other manufacturers. Any signal feeding into or out through the capture card I/O can be made available over the network to TriCaster and other NDI systems as a video source for live productions. And, the NDI-enabled video channel can also be configured to switch a local webcam into your program, expanding your sources and connectivity.

Simply fill out the form for access to the NewTek Connect production application. You’ll receive a notice with a link to download the application, and will also receive valuable information via email as the NDI network continues to grow.
