NDI® I/O in VDMX Visual Performance Software

September 24, 2018 by Chuck Baker

VIDVOX has added NDI® support to VDMX, popular professional VJ and visual performance software for the Mac OS, and published tutorials on how to use NDI sources and output NDI streams.

Professional VJ and live multimedia visual performance applications for live events and entertainment are among the adopters of NewTek’s NDI, bidirectional IP technology for transport of video, audio, metadata and communications. By far the leading IP standard for video production, NDI is now in hundreds of products in the hands of millions of users. The ability to integrate any networked device as a source or a destination (or both!) without complicated and expensive video conversion devices and video cabling cuts costs, simplifies the connections and multiplies the creative possibilities for visual performance professionals.
