NDI is a game changer for me in that it eliminates the limitations of cable length when trying to bring video sources into my production workflow. Now if it’s on my network it can be brought in just like the rest of my hardwired video sources.

The NDI scan converter can bring in low latency PC video and attached cameras directly or you can use hardware based solutions like PTZ cameras, the Newtek Connect Spark, and others.

NDI is a great solution for schools and houses of worship looking to add more video sources to their productions without the limitations and cost of running more video cable.
