TAG Video Systems has added support for the Network Device Interface (NDI) 5 and Secure Reliable Transport (SRT) protocols.
NDI is a real-time, low latency IP video network technology that TAG says will enable its customers to build IP-based video networks.
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 switchers to PCs, phones, tablets and video conferencing applications, such as Skype, said the company.
Users will be able to employ NDI to capture the output from PCs, making it simple to add websites, PC UIs and video conference participants as tiles on a TAG mosaic. TAG also enables NDI as an output format.
SRT is an open-source transport protocol originally developed by Haivision that allows for robust transmission of high-quality, high-bandwidth video signals over public internet, unmanaged networks and WANs and similar networks with unpredictable performance without loss or impairments.
With minimal latency, SRT can assure transport of signals across these networks with no loss of quality while also providing encryption to protect content during transit. With support for SRT, TAG said its customers can acquire signals from distant sources and transmit multiviewer mosaics to distant viewers, even at-home remote workers with SRT plugins for desktop monitoring.
