Complete video production, control, and creativity all over IP
What is NDI?
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. NDI (Network Device Interface) by NewTek is a 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.
How does Panasonic support NDI?
Now, you can harness the power of NDI with Panasonic products. The Panasonic NDI capable models include a complete line-up of HN/UN series integrated robotic PTZ (Pan/Tilt/Zoom) Cameras and the AV-HLC100 Live Production Center. The integrated PTZs have built-in support of NDI via a highly efficient NDI|HX mode requiring no external conversion hardware allowing you to benefit from NDI with a Panasonic camera. The AV-HLC100 Live Production Center includes native NDI support as the premiere all-in-one live production tool. Combine the two together to enjoy end-to-end live video production from your live event to the web.
How is it useful?
NDI is video production over IP that you can use now on standard gigabit IP networks. Traditional control rooms and video productions utilized multiple paths, proprietary hardware, and distribution cores. With NDI, the network is your distribution and all video sources are available to all video destinations. No longer are you tied to physical limits of inputs and outputs, but rather the bandwidth of your network available to you.
