TAG Video Systems supports NDI 5, SRT as part of continuous platform improvement
TAG Video Systems, the leader in real-time software-based depth monitoring of linear video workflows, has announced support for NDI 5 and SRT, two protocols that dramatically increase connectivity and signal transport options and open up the door to greater collaboration and creativity. This development is in line with TAG’s platform continuous improvement initiative which aims to provide customers with the fastest possible access to emerging technologies for future-proof workflows.
NDI 5 (Network Device Interface)
NDI (Network Device Interface) is a low latency real-time IP video network technology that enables TAG customers to create IP video networks and enjoy many of the benefits of uncompressed video IP networks without the hassle, expense and the associated 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 switches to PCs, phones, tablets and video conferencing applications such as Skype. Using NDI, TAG clients can capture output from PCs, making it easy to add websites, PC UIs, and video conferencing participants as tiles on a TAG mosaic dataset. TAG also enables NDI as an output format, providing an inexpensive, low latency, high quality connection to display devices.
SRT (Reliable and Secure Transport)
SRT (Secure Reliable Transport) is an open source transport protocol originally developed by Haivision that enables robust transmission of high-quality, high-bandwidth video signals over the public Internet, unmanaged networks and WANs, and similar networks with unpredictable performance without loss or degradation. . With minimal latency, SRT can ensure the transport of signals over these networks without loss of quality while also providing encryption to protect content during transit. With SRT support, TAG customers can acquire signals from remote sources and transmit multiviewer mosaics to remote viewers, even to teleworkers at home with SRT plug-ins for office monitoring. SRT is widely used in cloud workflows and ground-to-cloud / cloud-to-ground links to create live linear cloud workflows. Adding SRT support to TAG’s existing support for Zixi, AWS MediaConnect, and CDI and codecs such as JPEG-XS enables customers to build highly interoperable, low-latency multi-vendor systems that lead the way in end-to-end, transformative cloud-based media workflows.
As always, in accordance with TAG’s Zer0-Friction paradigm, all current TAG customers upgrading to the latest version of TAG software can activate our latest features, including NDI and SRT, at no additional cost or license changes. », Declares Kevin Joyce, TAG Zer0 Friction Manager.
