NewBlue’s Titler Live Broadcast Uses NewTek’s NDI

Beause NewBlue’s Titler Live Broadcast software is based on NDI for IP-based connectivity, it can talk to up to 16 devices from one computer

Now that NewBlue’s Titler Live Broadcast 3D animated on-air graphics software supports NewTek’s NDI (Network Device Interface) giving it IP connectivity, it can stream text and graphics over up to 16 independent channels from a single computer.

“We think of our Titler Live Broadcast software package as a disruptive offering since for just $1,499 it provides much the same feature set as other hardware-based animated graphics systems could give you for up to $20K,” Adam Dolan director of marketing at NewBlue, Inc. told The Broadcast Bridge.

That’s one reason Titler Live Broadcast became the first NDI-enabled developer software product in the NewTek NDI online store. It should prove reliable because the graphics engine powering Titler Live Broadcast is built on the same platform that also drives successful applications such as its flagship titling tool, Titler Pro.

Dolan points out that now with the NewTek TriCaster Mini and Titler Live Broadcast software on a laptop, you could carry around a whole production bundle in a duffle bag.

NewBlue has had other SDI-based titler products bundled with other popular NLE’s for several years, but this is their first IP-based foray with NewTek working with their IP Production Suite.

“We at NewTek are excited to have NewBlue Titler Live Broadcast as the first third party product available on our E-store since it provides best-of-breed options for people looking for sophisticated animated graphics capabilities,” Scott Carroll, director of public relations at NewTek told The Broadcast Bridge. “And, of course, since it is NDI-enabled, it provides greater flexibility to the customer than an SDI-only solution.”

NewTek’s NDI software development kit (SDK) is available royalty free for any company looking to develop IP workflows within their organization or in the commercial products and applications they deliver.

NewBlue will support the additional features in NDI version 2 when the updated SDK becomes available in Q4 2016.
