FAQ about Kiloview N6 and NDI 5

Q: What are the major differences between NDI 5 and NDI 4?

A: There are five quantum leaps from NDI 4 to NDI 5:
Reliable UDP. You will get rid of laggy video playing or slow transmission from reliable and high-efficient UDP protocol.
ARM Support. You will have a flood of devices to take part in NDI creation.
NDI Bridge. You can discover NDI source across the Internet, rather than local intranet.
NDI Remote. Any remote user can quickly access your NDI system with your shared link.
NDI Audio Direct. You can have floating point audio in major DAW (digital audio workstation) application with unlimited channels running in the new NDI 5 system.

Q: What is the significance of NDI5 for video producers?

A: With NDI 5, you can connect any video content, source, and devices all over the world. That means you can finish video production across networks all around the world. Meanwhile, every user or producer can opt-in to your creation by a link simply and securely.

Q: Can NDI Bridge replace SRT?

A: Similar to NDI Bridge, SRT is another existing protocol for public video transferring, and it’s been used for point-to-point transmission. Before we have NDI5, many of the remote video transferring solutions are based on SRT, but as NDI Bridge is here, we have a more powerful option for low latency and high-quality IP video transmission.

Q: What is the mechanism of NDI Bridge?

A: According to the new NDI 5 SDK and some industry views, before sending to the NDI Bridge, the video will be transcoded into H.264/H.265 stream data over RUDP. On the other side, the stream data will be recovered to NDI. That is to say, NDI Bridge works as a built-in tool for video encoding and transmission.

Q: How does NDI Remote work?

A: An NDI Remote link has two-fold function (sending video & receiving video). Any user or contributor can join your NDI production remotely by simply clicking your link. NDI Remote securely empowers multiple remote contributors to send their videos. Meanwhile, it allows your audience to receive video from any mobile device anywhere in the world into virtually any video software application to add sources conveniently.

Q: What the ARM-based NDI 5 SDK means for the industry?

A: Billions of devices NDI enabled through support for ARM. And it provides stream level access to NDI, FPGA implementation and full source code to permit an off the shelf FPGA dev-kit to be used as a starting point for NDI encoding projects.

NDI 5 can run on devices with ARM processors. “That means mobile assembly now has become a part of the assembly chain,” Vizrt’s president Michael Namatinia said. “Suddenly devices that did not have accessibility to NDI now can become an NDI device. It brings the price from thousands or hundreds of dollars down to dollars on the development side.” Going forward, Namatinia expects to see a wave of new NDI-capable products coming out that enable more comprehensive production at a lower price.

Q: Will Kiloview products be upgraded to support NDI 5?

A: After NDI 5 is officially released, we will arrange an upgrade, and all products will be upgraded to use SDK 5.0.

Q: What does NDI 5 mean to Kiloview? What are the new product plans?

A: Kiloview is the strategic partner of NewTek and NDI 5 frees Kiloview from the question whether to go with NDI|HX or NDI, also offer more chances for Kiloview to come up with much more advanced NDI products with strong function, reliable performance and cost-effective price since NDI 5 allow devices to be built on ARM CPU.

Fully understanding the opportunities NDI 5 will bring to the industry, Kiloview will launch its N6, an HD HDMI and NDI+NDI|HX bi-directional converter. With two built-in tally lights, based on NDI 5, N6 will be your video transmission master. More can be found on our website.

Q: Is Apple M1 or Raspberry Pi compatible with the new NDI 5?

A: Sure. Since NDI 5 can be run on ARM architecture, a flood of new devices like Android phone will be able to play a role in the NDI world.

Q: What are some cost-effective solution for beginners to try NDI?

A: Kiloview N6 is a great one for new NDI protocol, which E1/E2-NDI is another inexpensive option for newbies to NDI world.

Q: Will the NDI 5 Remote handles mix-minus on its own?

A: Theoretically speaking, both mix-minus and AEC can be handled by the new protocol. And the final hardware properties vary on realizing related features.

Q: Will NDI5 be added into the Android and iOS apps?

A: While the official developers are working on their own to developing NDI Apps of all platform, Kiloview is contributing to the ecosystem with its Multiview NDI player (free to download).
