NDI On the Go!

What is NDI? 

NDI (Network Device Interface) makes sending and receiving high-quality video a standard part of any suitable network. It has low latency* and works across wired networks as well as mobile connections. NDI is easy to use – sources and destinations appear automatically in menus, and any NDI source can connect to any NDI device on the network. 

*Actual latency depends on the performance of the overall network. 

Atomos & NDI 

Atomos now provides wireless or wired NDI transmission from a Ninja V or Ninja V+ fitted with an Atomos CONNECT or from a Shogun CONNECT. Just purchase the NDI HX2 TX firmware option, available for just $/€ 99 from my.atomos.com, and you’ll be able to send NDI video over any suitable IP network.  

It’s a powerful option: high-quality network video from a mobile device. And as part of the global NDI ecosystem, you’ll be able to send video to thousands of NDI-compatible destinations. 

Atomos CONNECT NDI HX2 TX Key Features

    • Transmit video over Wi-Fi or Ethernet network using the NDI protocol 
    • Record input and NDI stream output 
    • Supports NDI HX2 transmission up to 1080p60 with Shogun CONNECT and Ninja V+ with ATOMOS CONNECT (1080p30 for Ninja V and ATOMOS CONNECT) 
    • Recording available in Apple ProRes or Avid DNx codec 
    • Monitor the input on the Atomos screen 
    • Operate untethered using the Atomos device’s optional battery power   

Use Cases

NDI was ideal for cameras in a fixed location, typically with Pan, Tilt and Zoom (PTZ) capabilities. But now, Atomos CONNECT NDI HX2 equips any HDMI or SDI camera to act as a mobile NDI transmitter.  

Atomos CONNECT NDI HX2 connects to a local area network using either Wi-Fi or an Ethernet cable. Once NDI is enabled, high-quality video is available to any suitable NDI-enabled device on the local area network subnet. 

View, record or use the NDI source for OBS or a NewTek TriCaster, and then retransmit as part of a larger production.  

NDI is free to use, and because it only needs a standard ethernet network, it is now ubiquitous in video applications like live production, videoconferencing, education and esports.
