NDI promises to usher in a new era in video production by taking the video signal to IP making it easier than ever to connect video sources over Ethernet, eliminating the need for special SDI or HDMI wires and capture devices. It is perfect for mimoLive, allowing you to add more cameras and other interesting video sources at low cost. See below for all the various ways to use mimoLive and NDI.
Boinx Apps With NDI
mimoLive is the live video production power house for your Mac. Spice up your production with multiple cameras and video sources, add some great graphics, play out to SDI, NDI, disk, external video or stream live to YouTube, Facebook, Twitch and many more.
Turn your iPhone or iPad into an intelligent wireless camera that can overlay text, lower thirds, play b-roll, stream it to YouTube and other RTMP destinations, and send it to mimoLive via mimoCall and, soon, NDI.
Let the presenter choose photos and videos from their iPad and show them on the live stream or on a big screen via NDI and mimoLive, including a laser pointer or the Mouseposé effect to highlight parts of the photo.
Using NDI With mimoLive
Remote Screen Capture
Capture a remote PC or Mac screen into mimoLive with the vMix Desktop Capture app via NDI. Very handy for screen casts, software demos, training videos, and for getting PowerPoint or Keynote presentations into your broadcast or live stream. This significantly simplifies cabling requirements.
Renderless Playout From Premiere
Giving you a taste of what’s possible with NDI, the NewTek “NDI for Adobe Creative Cloud” plugin allows you to play out video directly from Premiere into the live video stream. Go very fast from edit to playout without waiting for the rendering!
Add Wireless Cameras
One of the key benefits of NDI is that it allows you to add new cameras at relatively low cost. For example, you can simply use your iPad or iPhone (or Android device) as a wireless camera with the NewTek NDI Camera app. This gives you a mobile hand camera for example to showcase your product close up in a product launch demo.
Web Content in Your Show
Use the WebNDI app by Sienna to browse the web on your iPad and seamlessly integrate the content in your mimoLive show via wireless network and NDI. Very useful if you want to discuss web pages in your live stream or to bring in user generated content. Video like YouTube or Vimeo is not supported for technical reasons.
