Last fall, NewTek, the Texas-based hardware/software developer renowned for its media and broadcast products, announced the launch of its new NDI protocol for transmitting video over digital networks. Since then, NewTek has been working with third parties to help expand the adoption of NDI. Last month, NewTek announced it would bring NDI to Adobe’s Creative Cloud family of applications and services:
The NDI integration enables users of Adobe Premiere Pro CC, Adobe After Effects CC and other Adobe Creative Cloud applications to send real-time video and audio to any NDI-enabled receiving product, such as production switchers or capture cards, across a standard Ethernet network. With NDI for Adobe Creative Cloud, creators and producers can significantly accelerate their pre- and post- production pipelines, bypassing rendering and uploading of creative elements for a faster, more efficient delivery for content review and approval. It also allows teams in different locations to work together in one interface in real-time, making creative decisions collaboratively—and saving valuable time in the process.
NewTek’s NDI plugin for Adobe Creative Cloud is available thru a $9.99 monthly subscription from the NewTek Store. The NDI protocol itself is now available as a royalty-free software developer kit for any company looking to establish IP workflows within their organization, or in production tools and systems they manufacture.
