3D Storm - LiveXpert Advances Software-Driven IP Workflows With NewTek NDI
At IBC 2016, NewTek and 3DStorm - LiveXpert will demonstrate IP interoperability between NDI-enabled applications and devices located at NewTek’s booth 7.K11 and 3D Storm booth 7.K21 using the RAI¹s standard Ethernet infrastructure. NewTek’s royalty free NDI technology allows video and audio sources to be shared bi-directionally across a network, eliminating the need for costly direct connections, expensive cable runs, and infrastructure upgrades while turning every source into a destination instantly available anywhere on the network.
“Every product in LiveXpert catalogue supports NDI. LiveXpert was the first member of the NewTek Developer Network to release NDI-compatible products with LiveCG Football™ and Live Mixer™ said Bruno Lesté LiveXpert Product Manager at 3D Storm. “Many of our products are NDI-only. For example, LiveCG Election™, the most simple and powerful solution to display election graphics and results, or Live Media Server™, the multi-format digital player/recorder are available in versions with NDI I/O-only. This allows LiveXpert to deliver the most flexible solutions at incredibly attractive prices with the flexibility offered by NDI to use these products anywhere on a local network of a production facility. Today 3D Storm with its LiveXpert products has the biggest offering of NDI products all dedicated to live production and sports.”
“Software-driven IP workflows are quickly becoming ubiquitous in video production,” said Michael Kornet, executive vice president of Business Development for NewTek. “NDI-enabled devices like LMS-NDI (Live Media Server) and Live CG Football exponentially increase the video sources available for live production creating efficiencies and opportunities for customers that did not previously exist. NDI is the most widely adopted IP technology on the market, epitomized by the millions of customers with access to it today.”
3D Storm - LiveXpert will also support additional features in NDI when the updated software development kit (SDK) becomes available in Q4 2016. The NDI SDK is royalty free for any company looking to establish IP workflows within their organization, or in commercial products and applications they deliver. Building on the widely adopted and ground-breaking Network Device Interface announced at IBC 2015, NewTek’s NDI version 2 adds higher performance, resolution independence, 16-bit per channel support for the highest precision color of any IP standard, 16 channels of floating point audio, improved cross subnet support, integrated fail-over support, network-based re-routing support, and more.
