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
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/
