Bringing Low-Latency, High-Performance Video Enhancing Visualization Experiences to
Control Rooms and Corporate Workspaces
MONTREAL – April 7, 2021 – VuWall, a technology leader in video wall control systems and unified visualization solutions, today announced support for software-driven IP workflows by integrating the NDI® protocol in the VuStream 150 encoder/decoder appliance. VuStream 150 now supports NDI-enabled applications and devices using standard Ethernet local area networks. VuWall’s NDI implementation puts them amongst the industry’s largest IP ecosystem of products, as they join the rapidly expanding number of companies enabling interoperability within IP-based customer workflows.
NDI is a royalty-free technology that allows video, audio and data sources to be shared bi-directionally across a network. NDI eliminates the need for costly direct connections, expensive cable runs, and infrastructure upgrades while making any source available for any destination on the network.
“Integrating NDI technology into our ecosystem of products is a natural move for VuWall as it aligns perfectly with our philosophy in bringing interoperability and simplicity to AV over IP workflows,” said Mark Schmidt, CTO at VuWall. “The built-in NewTek NDI|HX support on our VuStream 150 brings tremendous value to our customers in high-demanding mission-critical environments, where high-performance and low-latency video is critical.”
“Software-driven IP workflows have become ubiquitous for content distribution,” said Michael Namatinia, president, NDI. “We are really excited to have VuWall on board, bringing NDI technology to AV over IP workflows, enabling content distribution to displays and video walls throughout facilities.”
The VuStream 150 appliance is the first in VuWall’s ecosystem of products to offer compatibility with the high-performance NDI|HX protocol. This appliance can be used as an encoder or a decoder, and can transmit HDMI 2.0 signals up to 3840×[email protected] resolution over standard networks. In addition to its NDI compatibility, the VuStream 150 also supports H.264 and H.265 streams. Thanks to its NDI|HX implementation, this appliance offers low bandwidth consumption, bringing customers a high quality, cost-effective video-over-IP solution. The VuStream 150’s interoperability with other NDI-enabled devices and applications brings seamless integrations, thus simplifying workflows for video wall applications.
