TAG Video Systems adds support for NDI 5 and SRT

NDI (Network Device Interface) enables TAG customers to build IP-based video networks without the associated complications, expense and performance requirements.

With support for NDI 5, the latest version of NDI, TAG customers can automatically discover and connect to a wide range of NDI sources from cameras and switchers to PCs, phones, tablets and video conferencing applications such as Skype.

Using NDI, TAG customers can capture the output from PCs making it simple to add websites, PC UIs and video conference participants as tiles on a TAG mosaic.

TAG also enables NDI as an output format, providing an inexpensive, low-latency and high-quality connection to display devices.

SRT (Secure Reliable Transport) is an open-source transport protocol that allows for robust transmission of high-quality high-bandwidth video signals over public internet, unmanaged networks and WANs, and similar networks with unpredictable performance.

With support for SRT, TAG customers can acquire signals from distant sources and transmit multiviewer mosaics to distant viewers, even at-home remote workers with SRT plugins for desktop monitoring.

Kevin Joyce, TAG’s Zer0 Friction Officer, commented: “As always, in keeping with TAG’s Zer0-Friction™ paradigm, all current TAG customers upgrading to the latest version of TAG software can enable our latest features including NDI and SRT at no additional cost or changes to their licenses.”
