New NDI Tool Optimized For NVIDIA GPUs

The app uses NVIDIA GPU power on the PC for game streaming and other video applications, replacing the need for video capture cards.

The NDI Screen Capture HX app works in collaboration with NVIDIA GPU-based PCs to capture screens and make them available as an NDI source on the network. This is intended to eliminate the need for expensive video capture cards when sharing or streaming content from another computer.

"Our mission is to make IP video easy to use and fun for anyone to make a great show," said Dr. Andrew Cross, Head of R&D for the Vizrt Group. "Offering full NVIDIA GPU-accelerated support for NDI allows gamers to use applications like OBS Studio, XSplit, TriCaster, or any of the thousands of applications that support NDI.”

NDI Screen Capture HX is optimized for NVIDIA GPUs, thereby removing all reliance on a PC’s CPU when capturing a screen. This delivers pristine video over the network, at resolutions up to 4K and frame rates up to 120Hz without compromise.

“NDI is helping gamers, creatives and enterprises tell stories online using the ground-breaking capabilities of NDI Screen Capture HX,” said Gerardo Delgado, Senior Product Manager at NVIDIA. “Using NVIDIA GPUs, Screen Capture HX delivers a real-time, no-compromise solution for network-driven content creation.”

NDI Screen Capture HX also allows users to run a PowerPoint presentation on one machine with embedded transitions, animation, audio, or movies included and use it on another machine as part of a live presentation, production, or web stream. The tool will also allow users to remotely control one machine using another on the network with full frame-rate video, even on 4K displays, with full support for moving keyboard, mouse, touch surface, clipboard, audio and video between machines.
