NewTek NDI Tools

The NewTek NDI Tools includes 6 powerful NDI production applications to help you move your shows into the IP-based video space. These tools allow you to use more devices, applications and files in your workflow, switch more content into your shows, organize your NDI sources and more.

NDI for Adobe® Creative Cloud®
Design then deliver Adobe Creative Cloud content directly into your live production workflow from any Microsoft® Windows® workstation on your network. NDI for Adobe Creative Cloud is the only software plugin for Adobe’s industry-standard creative tools enabling real-time, renderless playback and preview over IP via NDI—right from the timeline—simplifying review and approval processes, facilitating collaboration between teams in different locations, and accelerating live-to-air editing workflows.

NDI Access Manager
Organize NDI sources into groups and determine whether those sources are public or private on your network. NDI Access Manager allows you to make your NDI sources visible to every system and device on your network, or to select groups. You can also determine the NDI sources and groups that are visible and accessible to your system during productions, including sources from different subnets.

NDI Scan Converter
Expand your entire workflow, virtually, with NDI Scan Converter. Install on laptops and workstations—anywhere on your network—and their full-screen displays or any combination of windows, applications, webcams, or the entire screen become available as switchable video sources, without affecting other actions on those computers during production.

NDI Test Patterns  
Equip your system or device to send a reference signal to other NDI-enabled devices on your network for audio and video calibration. Install this application and choose from a variety of test patterns, color bars, and audio tones to ensure accurate color properties and appropriate sound levels.

NDI Video Monitor
Turn any laptop or workstation into an NDI Video Monitor. Install this application, then select any NDI source visible on your network to view its video feed in real time from a dedicated window on your desktop.

NDI VLC Plugin
Enable more content, in more formats, delivering video clips to the network directly from your desktop with NDI VLC Plugin. Reduce the time and effort spent transcoding and transferring files for live production, bypass the hassle and cost of signal conversion from consumer devices, and access otherwise unusable content for your live programs. And all of it is transcoded, transferred, and accessed over a standard GigE network connection.
