The potential of this technology is boundless, and I cannot wait to work with the team as we take the NDI mission to the next level.”
Michael Hallén, CEO of Vizrt Group added, “NDI is already the most widely used and the most recommended video-over-IP technology in the Media and Entertainment space. Adding experienced talent like Tarif to the team will help us expand NDI’s appeal to new markets.”
Hallén also paid tribute to Namatinia: “Michael has added a great deal of value to Vizrt Group over the years and has been hugely passionate about moulding NDI to be ready for its next stage of growth,.
“Tarif shares this passion and will build upon the solid partner relationships and innovative technology roadmap to ensure that even more people benefit from using NDI.”
