An introduction to the video over IP standard that’s taking the industry by storm. Discover:
- How NDI compression works.
- The benefits of NDI over other IP standards.
- Key NDI software and hardware.
- The day one experience of NDI.
Video Transport by Medialooks is a proprietary protocol that works on top of SRT and features automatic site discovery and network traversal (based on ICE), advanced forward error connection (FEC) and ARQ recovery implementations. Effective H.264 and H.265 compression is used for bandwidth reduction – from as low as 2 Mbps to as high as 80 Mbps for perceptually lossless transmission. When interfacing with a browser for remote video contribution or monitoring, the transport method switches to WebRTC.

Marc Risby, CTO of DigiBox in conjunction with Dan Mail, CEO of Bird Dog explain how the transition to IP has not only been enabled, but some would say “unleashed”.
We’ve heard about interoperability, microservices and vendors collaborating, so what does this mean for standards?
Are industry standards like SMPTE 2110 more important than ever – or an anachronism in an age driven by IT? What about other emerging standards such as NDI?
Leading industry systems integrators, Marc Risby (CTO, Boxer Systems)
and Daf Rees (Deputy Director of Operations, Arena TV)
, debate the importance of standards in the transition to IP – and ask whether they are always answering the right question.
