About NDI

NDI is a royalty free standard enabling compatible products to share video, audio, and data across a local area network. Using refined encoding and communication, NDI allows systems, devices and applications to identify and communicate bi-directionally with one another over IP, and to encode, transmit, and receive multiple streams of high quality, low latency, frame-accurate video and audio in real time.

NDI Connects Everything

About the SDK

The NDI SDK provides the tools and resources for developers and manufacturers to easily add native NDI support to their video products. The SDK enables products to find, send, and/or receive video streams over IP, with an encoding algorithm independent of resolution and frame rate supporting up to 4K (and beyond), along with 16 channels (and more) of floating-point audio. It also includes tools to implement video access and grouping, bi-directional metadata, IP commands, tally and more.

About SDK

The Industry’s Leading IP Standard

With thousands of companies adopting and integrating NDI into their video products using the NDI SDK, NDI has quickly become the most prolific IP-based workflow in the industry. Between these newly compatible NDI-enabled systems, devices and applications put NDI in the hands of millions of customers worldwide.
