TVB published a great article on NDI and Three Media CTO Craig Bury says "The traffic and processing capabilities of Network Device Interface (NDI) video-over IP technology and its surrounding ecosystem of products make it a suitable choice for many complex broadcast IP projects."
Bury has been in the industry since 1971 and witnessed major technology changes and now witnessing a massive shift – from SDI to IP, which is changing the remote production indsutry in a huge way!
Since the pandemic remote work and remote production has become the new normal. Here is what Bury has to say about the several major advantages that NDI brings.
"Removing the need for costly networking and infrastructure investments, NDI is able to utilise standard Ethernet-based LAN networks, making it possible to connect every system in the MCR and related environments – including cameras, screens, production rooms, control and operational facilities. It also allows every enabled device and source to be visible on the network as a source or destination – giving MCR personnel a complete overview of the network at all times."
"There are, however, two aspects in particular that we think will mean NDI truly goes the distance in broadcast. Providing a universal workflow, NDI is not beholden to resolution or format – meaning that it can continue to be used successfully as the industry moves from HD to 4K and even 8K. Of course, this also means that it can continue to be refined and augmented without affecting interoperability.
