NDI Bridge in NDI 5 - Point to Point Video Anywhere in the World
mark last edited by
As I complete a short but much-needed holiday, I've been reading up on NDI 5 which the upcoming release of Isadora will support.
As it says on the NDI Tools page:
Securely share NDI sources between remote sites, anywhere in the world, using a simple and secure network setup.
- Maintain native end-to-end NDI workflows, reducing complexity, cost and latency across any distance.
- NDI Bridge delivers local convenience on a global scale as it handles all the complexity of remote sources and still works with alpha channel, KVM, PTZs, tally, metadata and much more!
*NDI 5 Bridge BETA offers NDI Bridge Local Mode at present. We are working hard to bring Bridge and Host Mode to you, to expand your productions even further.
So while they don't seem to have the "host mode" working yet, the promise of an easy method to ship video and audio from anywhere to anywhere is tantalizing for anyone creating about remote performance work.
Our beta testers have received a beta build of the upcoming release which is still NDI 4. But the next release they receive will have NDI 5. We'll dig in to do some testing with NDI Bridge to see what it means and report to all of you here once we know more.

@mark It's cool, though it is just another WebRTC back haul, which might struggle in multi-NAT situations. Looking forward to seeing it when it works over WAN though.
Time to switch to IP V6 I guess. ;-) Would not change the difficulty to open the firewall on one end though...
