NDI releases version 5.5 with new features such as routing and audio-over-IP deployment capabilities
NDI has announced the release of NDI 5.5. This update delivers user experience improvements and adds tools —including new routing capabilities, enhanced audio capabilities, improved features, and performance on remote connections—. NDI 5.5 supports the needs of cloud, on-premises, and hybrid workflows.
“NDI 5.5 follows on from the recent release of the NDI SDK for Unreal Engine 5 plugin, further demonstrating our commitment to provide the operating ‘glue’ that creators instinctively use as they deliver their craft, and also give our partners an ever-evolving platform to create exciting products,” remarks Tarif Sayed, President, NDI.
This release boasts changes to the NDI tools launcher allowing more control by users, faster connections with talkback when bringing in remote video sources via NDI Remote, multiple source support in NDI Webcam, and two new functionalities.
An all-new, free to use app in the NDI Tools suite, NDI Router, allows users to route NDI sources as custom inputs to selected outputs with a click. Buttons can have bespoke names and styles, and users can preview the source assigned to any destination.
NDI AudI/O now allows SDK users to connect any audio device as an NDI source without the need to use third party software applications and use instead as an independent source. Building on NDI Audio Direct, NDI AudI/O brings audio-over-IP into the NDI world.
