Atomos will be integrating NDI across its entire Connect product range as an instantly recognisable source by other NDI-enabled applications and devices connected to a standard local area network.
To mark its entry into the NDI ecosystem, Atomos has integrated NDI|HX in the Zato Connect, Atomos Connect, and Shogun Connect solutions. Initial NDI support for encoding will be available in Q3 with an update in Q4 2022 for decoding.
This update, says Atomos, enables customers to share images and content between multiple devices locally and select a specific device (or devices) to record the incoming signal.
Trevor Elbourne, CEO of Atomos, said, “The addition of NDI has been on the internal roadmap for some time. Because NDI provides such a well-known, trusted, and powerful IP-video workflow, we can offer more versatility to our customers and increase the value of their investment in Atomos technology.
“When it comes to sharing video across devices, we see immense potential for collaboration, flexible system design, and redundancy; we’re excited really to see where our customers will take this innovation.”
NDI|HX3, the newest iteration of NDI|HX, offers both low bandwidth and low latency options for end-users. With NDI|HX3, encoding is visually lossless, even in bandwidth constrained environments, enabling ATOMOS customers to expand the use case and versatility of the Atomos Connect products by sharing video between team members and adding the ability to record content on different devices.
Tarif Sayed, President of NDI, added, “With software-driven IP workflows mission-critical for video production, teams need to have secure, low latency technology to streamline and transform productions.
“NDI provides that guarantee in a simple to adopt way. The NDI integration for Atomos products will enable limitless connection opportunities for Atomos users and we are excited to see how it will generate even more creativity in the stories they tell.”
