NewTek® NDI Setup

 

NewTekNDILogoNewTek®'s NDI interface is a powerful network video transport that allows simple, high quality video and audio signals to be transported across standard tcp/ip networks.  Drastic supports NDI in most of its products, including videoQC, 4KScope, sdiScope and the Network Video Analyzer.  This article contains information on setting up NDI sources in Drastic software.

 

SMPTE2NDI

SMPTE2NDI converts SMPTE 2110 or 2022-6 streams to NDI streams entirely in software on a physical server or virtual machine.  All it requires is a 10G or better network card to receive the SMPTE stream. Once the SMPTE stream is set up, the NDI stream name can be set in the Config dialog by pressing the Config button on the main interface.

The default name is 'smpte2ndi'.

videoQC supports NDI sources via the Open Stream menu, in the side bar or under the File menu

videoQC OpenStreamMenu

 Clicking on it will bring up the Open Stream dialog box, which will have previous stream sources, as well as any NDI source detected on the network.

To use NDI in any or our waveform/vectorscope products, first open the Config dialog, and select NDI as your source 'board'.
