Event Multi-camera Production Challenges & Solutions with NDI

Providing multi-camera video production services supporting weekly church services from a recurring location with an integrated AVL system can be challenging. If the AVL system is not permanently installed – as in portable-church applications – the challenges to maintain high production value content and execution increase exponentially. If then the event is a “one-off,” occurring in a venue nearly 125 years old with little to no permanently integrated AVL infrastructures, the challenge to produce a contemporary concert/teaching event with a…

Production IP Workflows using NDI

This article will provide insight on advantages and examples of using IP video workflows, based on the NDI protocol. NDI (Network Device Interface) is a protocol which supports very low latency IP video over Ethernet and Wi-Fi network connections. It is also intended to work over gigabit network implementations using ordinary Ethernet switches and routers. The creator of this solution is NewTek, a company that supports a wide variety of video production devices including the TriCaster family of video switchers.…
