NDI Camera

Producing and distributing video over IP networks

What is NDI?

NDI® is a network protocol that enables the distribution of high-quality video, audio and control signals over standard Ethernet networks in real-time and with minimal latency.

*NDI® is a registered trademark of the Vizrt Group.

What is an NDI Camera?

NDI® PTZ cameras support video, audio, power, and control over a single Ethernet cable, making installation and remote operation much easier. NDI-enabled PTZ cameras can instantly join NDI® AV workgroups and production networks. NDI® cameras are also equipped with an HDMI and SDI output interface, adding flexibility to your video workflow. 

How do I control an NDI Camera?

As standard, Lumens NDI® cameras support multiple control protocols including VISCA, VISCA over IP, NDI, and Pelco. Cameras can be controlled natively using Lumens hardware controllers and NDI® Tools developed by NewTek.
Lumens NDI® cameras integrate with 3rd party control systems, production software, and AV controllers, such as:
• Production Software: vMix, OBS Studio, Wirecast, Livestream Studio, mimoLive, Tricaster
• AV control systems: Crestron, Extron, AMX
• Control surfaces: Skaarhoj, Elgato

Software Control

As IP-connected devices, PTZ cameras can be controlled by computers and third-party devices running supported applications including:
NDI® Tools: NDI® Tools is a free suite of applications provided by NewTek, giving you the ability to control and configure multiple NDI cameras in software.
Bridging software: OBS plugin, Companion Module, seamlessly integrate NDI cameras with third-party technologies Elgato Stream Deck, and OBS Studio.

Mounting and Installing NDI Cameras

Like camcorders, NDI PTZ cameras can be placed on tripods and camera poles. They can also be easily installed on desktops, plinths, trussing, walls and ceilings. Upright or inverted, PTZ cameras are ultra-flexible when it comes to mounting options.
