Nimble Streamer

Nimble Streamer supports NDI
for input and output

What is NDI?

NDI is a technology which was implemented with these ideas in mind:

  • Live video is produced and processed by professional production teams in local networks prior to outer-world delivery.
  • Various solutions from various vendors are fully interoperable using the same protocol.
  • Network topology doesn’t matter, making it easy to find and capture video streams.
  • Video source is abstracted from video destinations, data is just sent into the network.

Take a look at our latest case study:
LiveX and VVCR: Nimble Streamer Powers Cloud Production Innovator
featuring Nimble Streamer NDI used by the leading production company.

NDI in Larix Broadcaster

Larix Broadcaster supports NDI®|HX2 output for both Android and iOS.

You can turn your mobile device into NDI source:

  • Output streaming via NDI®|HX2
  • AVC/H.264 and HEVC/H.265 codecs are supported
  • Preview stream support
  • Discovery Server and connection metadata
  • Handle zoom from NDI Studio Monitor

NDI is available in our mobile apps for just $19.99 per month via in-app subscription.

NDI in Nimble Streamer

Nimble Streamer NDI provides the following feature set.

NDI input
Nimble Streamer takes NDI input and handles it for further processing.

  • Get NDI from local network.
  • Decode and transform the stream with Live Transcoder filters: re-sizing, re-sampling etc.
  • Encode content into H.264/AVC, H.265/HEVC, VP8, VP9 with supported encoding libraries.
  • Re-package into other protocols for further delivery, like SRT, ZixiRTMPHLSDASH, Icecast etc.

Example: Nimble Streamer gets NDI stream in local network, re-package it to SRT and deliver it to distant production site with high reliability and security.
Check NDI to SRT to AWS Elemental MediaConnect video as example.

NDI output
Nimble Streamer can take any live stream input and create output NDI stream.

Example: having SRT stream from external public network, Nimble Streamer can re-package it into NDI for further production purposes.
Or generate NDI stream from local files via Server Playlist.
