LAMA brings to creators the power of NDI audio networking

Netherlands-based audio software specialist LAMA is bringing the real-time efficiencies of NDI to the audio world with the LAMA NDI Virtual Soundcard, a free 16 x 16 audio-over-IP (AoIP) software interface that delivers low-latency multi-channel audio over standard IP networks.

A technical collaboration between the global video-over-IP connectivity standard NDI and LAMA is bringing the plug and play efficiency of the popular AV-over-IP standard to a wider range of audio users. 

The LAMA NDI Virtual Soundcard emulates the functionality of a physical soundcard without the need for any additional hardware, harnessing the NDI protocol to send and receive high-quality, low-latency audio over standard IP networks.

NDI Audio streaming supports multiple audio channels to allow for the routing of complex audio setups across a network. Providing software-defined connectivity, it enables an audio application to interact with any PC as if it were a standard hardware soundcard, enabling a computer to send and receive NDI Audio using a conventional Ethernet port.

The LAMA NDI Virtual Soundcard leverages the same NDI protocol that revolutionised video production by enabling high-quality video to be transmitted over standard computer networks. By extending this capability to audio, the LAMA NDI Virtual Soundcard brings the same efficiencies to audio users. 

Ewan Cameron, Co-Founder and Chief Commercial Officer, LAMA, explained, “One of the most compelling advantages of LAMA NDI Virtual Soundcard is its accessibility. Supporting up to 16 inputs and outputs, this free tool makes NDI Audio accessible to a wider range of users, from hobbyists and small content creators to educational institutions and professional broadcasting companies.

“This approach not only simplifies the setup and reduces the costs associated with live production and streaming, but also enhances the flexibility and scalability of audio workflows. We believe this level of accessibility will encourage more users to explore the possibilities of NDI-enabled audio production workflows.”
