Caton Technology is expanding its NDI capabilities with the launch of a new solution that helps users move and share high resolution files far beyond their local network.
Caton NDI Gateway is a software-based connectivity platform that uses algorithms and AI-enhanced forward error correction to provide high bandwidth-efficiency and secure delivery.
It is powered by Caton Transport Protocols (CTP) and CatonNet Video Platform (CVP), and according to the company eliminates reliance on Transmission Control Protocol (TCP), providing a practical means to transmit NDI output over typical internet connections.
The solution also provides bi-directional operation, so a single user can both send and receive high quality NDI signals.
Caton said its simple user interface makes it easy to transmit from NDI sources or auto-discover NDI output sources, and set the transmit and receive parameters for the CTP transport stream at up to 50 Mb/s.
“NDI is a very popular solution for video networking, even up to 4K Ultra HD resolution,” said Gerald Wong, senior vice president, global operations, Caton Technology. “Caton NDI Gateway fully realises the goal of free-flowing video beyond the LAN, effectively reducing latency across NDI transmissions. It is exactly the solution that NDI users need to create efficient and cost-effective NDI workflows for remote operations.”
