Vizrt Group unveiled one of the most exciting product releases of the year today, NDI® 5

Available for download later this month, NDI 5 will allow anyone to easily move video, audio and metadata over LAN, WAN and public internet – with high speed and quality using billions of devices worldwide. With NDI 5, physical studios will be able to connect to ones in the cloud and remote video production effectively becomes local.

The benefits of NDI’s optimized codec and transport protocols provide unparalleled ease of use across existing networks. These benefits are further enhanced in NDI 5 by:  


  • NDI Remote: Connect with any remote user to receive their video and audio over the public internet by simply sharing a link. This is ideal both to quickly add sources to live productions, or to receive video from any mobile device anywhere in the world into virtually any video software application.
  • NDI Audio Direct: This set of audio plugins allows virtually any audio software application to take advantage of NDI. NDI Audio Direct lets users select, receive, and generate multichannel audio with extremely high quality and near zero latency.
  • NDI Bridge: Users can securely share NDI sources between remote sites, anywhere in the world, using a simple and secure network setup. This allows live production teams to stay native in NDI, end-to-end, reducing complexity, cost and latency across any distance.
  • Reliable UDP: This new transmission protocol NDI makes network infrastructure easier to set up, solving network congestion even with low performance network equipment and without the need of complex configuration.
  • OSX Support: Deeper support for Apple silicon systems, brings full NDI capability to all iOS, tvOS and iPadOS devices for the first time 
  • Improved Adobe Premiere and FCP support: NLE editors rejoice, this updated plug-in allows output for Final Cut Pro with real-time audio and video frame buffer output, while the Adobe Premiere and After Effects plugin now features improved audio workflow 


To make NDI even more accessible to new and experienced users alike, the free NDI Tools download has been reimagined for NDI 5 with a fresh interface and intuitive guidance built in. And for a limited time, we’re giving away 10,000 downloads of our camera app, which will allow NDI users the opportunity to add a 4K capable camera to their show when they connect their NDI-enabled mobile device
