Evertz Supports NewTek NDI for IP Production Workflow

Evertz has announced its support for NewTek’s open Network Device Interface (NDI) format for IP-based production workflows based on its Software Defined Video Networking (SDVN) solutions. The support of NDI enables Evertz media gateways and other SDVN products to be recognized by other NDI-enabled devices and systems connected to a standard Ethernet local area network. This exponentially increases the number of video sources available for live production.

By adding NDI support, Evertz SDVN extends the capabilities of IP within live production. This benefits any facility transitioning to IP by taking advantage of a 10GbE core SDVN system to bridge a large number of NDI-enabled devices, providing scalability and flexibility today and into the future.

This new standard for live production IP workflow is bi-directional and backwards compatible with a large number of devices from top manufacturers that already utilize NewTek’s open standard allowing IP connectivity between devices. Customers using Evertz SDVN will be able to utilize the many products in the NewTek Developer Network, the industry’s largest ecosystem of IP-enabled products using the same standard.

“With over 40 global installations of Evertz SDVN, the addition of NDI support will expand that install base. By supporting NDI, media companies deploying IP live production can leverage an open architecture that handles small webcast productions to large UHD productions seamlessly. The inclusion of NDI in our SDVN solution also maintains our commitment to support open formats that are proven to work including ASPEN (SMPTE RDD37) and SMPTE 2022-x series of standards,” said Eric Fankhauser, VP, Product Development for Evertz.
