NETGEAR Switching Engineered for NDI Videoguys Live

NETGEAR AV Pro switches are Videoguys' choice for NDI based productions.  Videoguys has selected three switches from the M4250 AV line of switches to function as the backbone of NDI productions of different sizes.  

On this week's Videoguys Live webinar, we're taking a look at these three switches, NDI, and how it all works together. 
Check out the webinar, below.

Videoguys and NDI

What is NDI?

NDI, or Network Device Interface, is a technology developed by NewTek to enable communication and delivery of high definition, low latency video over a network

NDI 5: The fifth generation of NDI represents a quantum leap for the world’s most used production video IP standard.

NDI 5 allows you to move audio and video between devices, anywhere in the world.
