    Newtek NDI over Wifi

    Hello anyone who can help, I have an iphone 6 with the Newtek NDI app installed connected via Wifi to a Linksys AC1900 router. This is the same router connecting the production and display computer. I can see the live feed in watchout on my production computer just fine, but for some reason I have not been able to see signal through the display. I downloaded and installed the latest Newtek software on both computers. The display computer also had difficulty seeing the signal in the NDI monitor app although I did see signal once briefly. Am I missing a setting on the display computer? I tried setting one of the inputs on the display computer to Newtek, but I don't see a reason that is helpful on the settings I made on the NDI input of the production computer. Thanks in advance
  2. I'm trying to use NDI Scan Converter (of NDI tools) to send the screen of a Win 10 PC to a Watchpax 2 (1920x1080). I'm sending the desktop (as the app used won't show up in the app list of Scan Converter when it is full screen), but everytime the media cue is started, I have to move the mouse of the Scan Converter PC to the taskbar, otherwise the output is black. If I try to send the desktop without any app running I still have to move the mouse (but not to the taskbar) to activate output after a cue has been started. This happens on the Watchpax output as well as the production computer preview. Has anyone used Scan Converter without this "bug"? I've also tried Ultra VNC server, which seem to work, as there's not really any video, only still images that change without transitions. My other option would be to use a usb capture card (Magewell USB Capture HDMI Plus) which I guess would be the most stable solution?

    NDI on WatchPax

    I have been working with various video inputs using NDI. I have 2 NewTek "Connect Spark" boxes which input HDMI and output NDI to the network. These seem to work fine for any source going to my Watchout rack computers. However when I try to output the signal to any of the WatchPax units, no image comes through. I have also created content on an external computer and used the NDI Scan Converter app to send web browser windows and movies. The content created with the Scan Converter displays through the WatchPax units without any problem. Has anyone else out there tried using these boxes with WatchPax? https://www.newtek.com/connect/spark/ Thanks Marty

    NDI latency vs SDI

    Has anyone done a latency test between NDI capture and SDI capture using a Datapath Pro card? I've been doing a lot of research on NDI and it might be a better capture option than SDI. I'm always looking to reduce latency and improve stability, and I have a couple large live video shows coming up this year where maybe NDI would be the better solution. Thoughts?
  5. NDI = Network Device Interface We have been testing the Newtek developed NDI system recently and found it to be very functional. In short NDI is a practical implementation of video over IP that is now open for hardware and software developers to integrate into products. The system has gained considerable ground over the past 12 months with many manufacturers adopting it. Take a look at Newtek's website to learn more but here are a few highlights: - Bi directional video and audio over standard IP network infrastructure, no special switches/routers required - SD - 4K resolution support - Supports key and Fill video and up 16 channel audio - Multiple signals over standard gigabit network links - Very low latency (sub 80ms) One of the most useful features we've seen is the free NDI Tools from Newtek one of which is called NDI Scan convert. Runs on any PC or Mac and can be set to capture the entire screen or focused window and create an NDI stream on the connected network, the process is similar to a VNC server but without the delay and at full HD-4k res and frame rate. The resulting stream can be seen on the network by any NDI compliant receiver, hardware or software. If the receive element was implemented in Watchout you could input Powerpoint, Keynote, character generators, web pages even live sources without going anywhere near a scan converter or capture card. I've seen character generator software with NDI output that supports key and fill. There are iOS NDI apps that turn an iPhone into a network camera, an app that captures an iPad browser and many other innovative uses of the NDI standard. So, how about including NDI support in Watchout both in and out. It could be a usable alternative to VNC. We have no commercial ties with Newtek but having tested and used it we just think it has a great deal of potential, its accessible, why not implement it. Anyone else think this is a good idea? http://www.newtek.com/ndi.html http://www.sienna-tv.com/ndi/

    Network Video and Syphon

    I am working on a project where one of the elements will be live content created in Syphon. I am trying to figure out the best way to stream that content in to Watchout. Due to system constraints, we can't using live capture cards in the computers. It would appear that the "Network Video" object is the way to accomplish this. I have no experience incorporating this, so I'm looking for any advice I can get. With some preliminary research using The Google, it would seem that VLC is capable of acting as a server for an RTP stream. The question is how to send the Syphon output to VLC. A second question would be are there other streaming protocols that Watchout can access, or does it need to be RTP? Thanks, steve
