NDI (opens in new tab)®, part of the Vizrt Group (opens in new tab), today announces an all-new version of NDI, NDI|HX 3. Now available to anyone using an NDI|HX 3 enabled device, users can select NDI|HX 3 as an option for better video with reduced latency—using a fraction of the bandwidth of NDI high bandwidth. NDI|HX 3 is an option for manufacturers and developers to magnify flexibility, without the need to change or upgrade hardware.  

Since its inception in 2015, applications and devices that are NDI-enabled (opens in new tab) have been adopted by more media organizations than any other IP standard—and adoption is still growing at record speed. NDI technology continues to break down the boundaries of creating content and moving video without limitations. NDI|HX 3 gives the option to deliver low-latency transmission with reduced bandwidth, while maintaining the visually lossless standards NDI users demand, allowing users to deliver broadcast-quality video in any setting without the need to upgrade their equipment.

There is a low engineering effort to integrate NDI|HX 3 for existing manufacturers to immediately begin leveraging the benefits. Software applications, such as NewTek TriCaster, Vizrt Vectar Plus, vMix, etc., will not need any upgrade to support NDI|HX 3.
