The world’s premier software-driven IP video technology.
Explore unprecedented possibilities for connectivity, creativity, and control with IP—all while using the network infrastructure you have in place today. NDI®, NewTek’s innovative Network Device Interface technology, enables compatible systems, devices, and applications to connect and communicate over IP to share video, audio, and data.
Adopted and integrated into products by hundreds of companies, in development with thousands more, and readily accessible by millions of people worldwide, NDI® is the most widely adopted and used IP standard in the world, and presents compelling new opportunities for video within practically any workflow or environment.
Getting started with NDI® is equivalent to adding connected devices to your network at home or the office. But, with applications ranging from effortlessly simple to incredibly sophisticated, the potential for producers and content creators in broadcast, sports, esports, education, business, worship, live events, professional A/V, digital signage, and other markets to advance their video productions with NDI® is immeasurable.
Concerned about the cost of transitioning to IP? Don’t be. NDI® doesn’t require you to invest in expensive facility upgrades, new network infrastructure, or proprietary hardware. High-bandwidth networking is optional, as Gigabit Ethernet network infrastructure can easily accommodate multiple NDI® video, audio, and metadata streams on a shared connection. WiFi is even a possibility with select compatible products.

“With over 40 global installations of Evertz SDVN, the addition of NDI support will expand that install base. By supporting NDI, media companies deploying IP live production can leverage an open architecture that handles small webcast productions to large UHD productions seamlessly. The inclusion of NDI in our SDVN solution also maintains our commitment to support open formats that are proven to work including ASPEN (SMPTE RDD37) and SMPTE 2022-x series of standards.”
— Eric Fankhauser, VP of Product Development
“The original vision of simple yet truly remote production from almost anywhere is now achieved with built-in NDI support in PTZ cameras and switchers. A single cable enables simplified video production without sacrificing quality or feature-set, in addition to the inherent features of Panasonic’s PTZ line-up including a family of controllers, image quality and smoothness in movement.”
— Delix Joseph T. Alex, Product Manager for PTZ Camera and IP Networking Systems, Panasonic Media Entertainment Company
“The Vizrt world is all about now and the future – and everything in between. What we are showing with our partners, Cisco and NewTek, is so close to “now” that one can touch it. This proof of concept (virtualized control rooms based on NDI) shows how software-based tools make live productions ever more flexible so that industry can be prepared for now and the future at the same time.”
— Petter Ole Jakobsen, Vizrt CTO
“Virtualization and control room automation over IP are the future of live production. Featuring this first-of-its-kind virtualized control room along with NewTek and Vizrt is sure to be a draw for many of our customers this year at the (NAB 2018) show.”
— Roger Sherwood, Director of Business Development, Media Segment, Service Provider Business, Cisco
“It is exciting to have over 60 video cards with different I/O options visible as sources in the large NDI ecosystem, creating new ways of thinking and working. NewTek NDI users will also gain access to SMPTE-2022-6 and in the future to other IP standards such as VSF TR-03 and ASPEN.”
