Core Technology

There is no video

without connection.

From a state-of-the-art overseas production to the room of a gaming streamer; from a smart network of traffic analysis to the most challenging remote surgeries; from an auction on social media with thousands of bidders to a parent calming their baby through a monitor.


NDI is the technology connecting the videoverse.


Together with our growing ecosystem, we are developing the most efficient, easy-to-use, and interoperable technology for video connections everywhere. NDI-enabled products are instantly discoverable in a standard IP network without requiring complex setups. They can then send or receive high-quality, low-latency video, audio, controls, and metadata, all in the same stream.

High Efficiency

  • Consume less bandwidth to provide visually lossless video up to 4k60 through our most advanced formats like HX3;
  • Integrate NDI on a hardware or software layer, adapting processing performance to your needs;
  • Eliminate expensive cables and gear while preparing your setup to scale cost-effectively.

Plug & Play

  • Discover, organize, and connect multiple devices in a seamless, intuitive experience;
  • Connect any NDI-enabled device over standard ethernet without requiring custom networking.


  • Enable true compatibility with a growing ecosystem featuring thousands of products, from consumer devices to professional-grade hardware and industry-leading software;
  • Unlock bi-directional transmission to send and receive video, audio and metadata, controlling devices remotely over the same video stream.
The next step is coming soon

Low bandwidth.

High Quality.

The golden ratio is HX3.

Our most efficient format yet enables seamless connectivity even in extreme contexts.
