The Proliferation of NDI in Live Production and Broadcast Workflows
Date & Time
Thursday, October 27, 2022, 3:00 PM - 3:30 PM
NDI was initially promoted as an entree to media production over IP as a low-cost alternative for smaller producers such as municipal governments, houses of worship, and the like. The COVID-19 pandemic has seen a sharp rise in the implementation of NDI, and the NDI Consortium continues to develop new versions of the industry standard such as NDI|HX, and NDI5. A suite of tools and applications has been continuously developed and revised as well. More major manufacturers are adding NDI support into their products as its use has expanded into broadcast and live production workflows. This paper examines these developments, and advocates for SMPTE standardization in concert and close partnership with the NDI consortium.
