Rename NDI Tools downloadables

Par : simond83
Please can you rename the downloads, so they're more clear as to what they are. I see there's a recent point update. I've now downloaded "NDI 4 Tools.exe". It would be better to have NDI_Tools_4.5.1_windows.exe.

Thanks :)

Also, can you add a 'download only' link so that we don't have to fill out the form all the time....thanks!

Bug in NDI for Adobe Creative Cloud prevents video playback in Premiere

Par : PaulSiegel
Hello -

I recently installed the NDI for Adobe Creative Cloud plugin on my OSX machine. The ability to import MOV files recorded by the NDI Monitor tool with timecode data felt extremely promising. However, I discovered the plugin also created a terrible bug in Adobe Premiere. Once installed, the ability to play back video in Premiere consistently breaks.

Pressing the play button in either the source monitor or the program monitor cause the audio to play back correctly, but the video shows nothing and the playhead on the timeline does not advance. I'm able to scrub the playhead on the timeline and see frames of video by moving it around, but it remains stuck at that position when pressing play. The problem occurs in all Premiere projects, regardless of whether they include an imported MOV file from NDI Monitor or not.

I attempted many fixes to this - clearing my cache, deleting Premiere preferences, rebooting -- none of this solved the problem. I then confirmed this was due to the plugin by simply removing this file from my system:

/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Common/Plug-ins/7.0/MediaCore/NDI_Transmit_AdobeCC.bundle

Removing this file immediately resolved the problem. Putting it back caused the problem to reoccur. I'd love to have the timecode data in my Premiere projects, but the bug that comes along with it makes Premiere unusable, which is a terrible shame.

Anyway, I just wanted to report the bug. I hope you're able to fix it. If you need any additional information I'd be happy to provide it. Here's some basic info about my system:

MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2016)
OSX: 10.15.6
Processor: 2.9 GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i7
Memory: 16 GB 2133 MHz LPDDR3
Graphics: Radeon Pro 460 4 GB, Intel HD Graphics 530 1536 MB
Adobe Premiere Pro: Version 14.3.1 (Build 45)

Frame rate issues in unreal engine SDK

Par : djevo2
I have noticed that with unreal 4.25 and the compatible NDI sdk I am getting significant frame drops on both inputs and outputs. No matter what framerates I lock NDI and the project to it seems like I am dropping every other frame on the NDI output and inputs. If i compare the main NDI output and the preview in the editor the motion in the editor is smooth wheras the NDI output exhibits this problem. Furthermore, if I create a standalone build of my project the preview as well as the NDI output suffers from this problem. I have attempted running at 1080o and 720p with the exact same result. If I run the same standalone version with no ndi input it runs perfectly fine in the preview window. I am running a 2070 super with an i7 and 16gb ram. This is seemingly isolated to the ndi sdk for 4.25.

eufy Security 2K, la caméra HomeKit pas cher

eufy Security, une filiale d’Anker (société chinoise. assez connue pour ses accessoires avec un bon rapport qualité/prix) propose depuis une caméra HomeKit Secure Video pas très onéreuse. Cette caméra d’intérieur vaut seulement 40 € sur Amazon, ce qui est significativement moins que les modèles concurrents.

La concurrence, en dehors des caméras uniquement HomeKit (j’ai des Omna – D-Link – et une Presence de chez Netatmo), vient de chez Eve (anciennement Elgato) avec un modèle à 150 €, de chez Logitech avec la Circle View (180 €) ou le modèle Netatmo pour l’intérieur (Welcome, vendue 200 €). En clair, chez les grandes marques, une caméra HomeKit Secure Video vaut entre 4 et 5 fois plus que le modèle eufy. A raison ? Pas vraiment, nous allons le voir.

La caméra est correcte sur la finition, et elle arrive avec un petit chargeur USB. Elle s’alimente avec un lon câble micro USB, c’est assez classique. Sur le côté, on trouve un emplacement pour une carte microSD (non fournie), un peu trop accessible à mon goût. Elle possède aussi un haut-parleur et un micro, mais il n’est pas accessible en HomeKit.

La caméra, simple mais efficace


microSD, enceinte, micro USB

Premier essai, uniquement en HomeKit. Et c’est un échec : impossible de connecter la caméra. Elle n’est pas visible dans HomeKit. L’application indique que si le code HomeKit est présent sous le pied – c’est le cas -, il n’y a pas besoin de l’application, en pratique… c’est différent.

Ben non

Pour configurer la caméra, j’ai donc dû créer un compte. Alors, c’est un peu une plaie : la localisation est obligatoire et le clavier passe en QWERTY pour le mot de passe (aucune idée de la raison) avec en plus des demandes reloues : 8 à 20 caractères, minuscules, chiffres, majuscules et caractères spéciaux (oui, tout). L’installation dans l’application est simple : elle utilise le Bluetooth pour détecter la caméra, on tape le mot de passe Wi-Fi (l’application ne le récupère pas) et on attend. J’ai eu un autre souci bizarre : la caméra a indiqué un problème (en parlant) avant de dire que c’était bon. Pour finir, j’ai eu une mise à jour de firmware « HomeKit » et j’ai pu ajouter la caméra dans Maison.

La création du compte


Mise à jour de firmware

Avant HomeKit, parlons de l’application. La caméra peut enregistrer sur une carte microSD (pas fournie) ou dans le cloud d’eufy (payant). L’activation d’HomeKit désactive pas mal de fonctions de détection, ainsi que le micro, mais aussi l’enregistrement en 2K : HomeKit limite au 1080p. Franchement, l’application est assez moyenne, avec de l’anglais fréquemment au milieu des textes en français, ce n’est pas génial. A noter qu’ils sont assez honnêtes sur les cartes SD : ils indiquent que les cartes peuvent être remplies 500x (c’est assez optimiste) et le temps d’enregistrement sur une carte (de 1,5 jour sur une 16 Go à 12 jours sur une 128 Go). Enfin, si on peut utiliser l’application pour streamer l’image (au lieu d’HomeKit), c’est assez horrible avec une latence de l’ordre de la seconde.

Pas de 2K


Pas de détection


Pas d’animaux (et encore des messages en anglais)

Dans HomeKit, la caméra propose deux appareils : un détecteur de mouvement et la caméra elle-même. Elle a évidemment un gros avantage : elle est compatible HomeKit Secure Video. Cette fonction sortie avec iOS 13 permet de stocker les vidéos chez Apple, gratuitement pendant 10 jours. Je mets en italique pour une bonne raison : HomeKit Secure Video nécessite un abonnement iCloud 200 Go (3 €/mois) pour une caméra, ou un abonnement 2 To (10 €) pour cinq caméras. Avec HomeKit Secure Video, on peut revenir facilement en arrière jusqu’à 10 jours en faisant défiler. Visiblement, c’est stocké en 1080p chez Apple et en 720p en streaming. Enfin, il faut aussi un concentrateur HomeKit (Apple TV, HomePod, iPad).

La solution d’Apple peut définir comment fonctionne la diffusion et l’enregistrement en fonction de la position de l’utilisateur, pour forcer l’enregistrement uniquement quand il n’y a personne par exemple. Il est aussi possible de définir l’accès aux autres utilisateurs quand vous partagez l’accès HomeKit, pour ne garder les enregistrements que pour l’utilisateur principal.

HomeKit



Alors que dire. La caméra est d’une qualité correcte physiquement. Ce n’est pas extraordinaire, mes Omna sont mieux finies, mais ça passe. La qualité d’image, par contre, est faible en HomeKit en pleine lumière : la Omna offre une image mieux définie, plus douce et globalement meilleure. La caméra d’eufy suffit pour de la détection, mais ça reste cracra quand même par rapport à la Omna. Il y a des artefacts, un zoom (bon, c’est plus lié à l’optique) et une accentuation de la netteté pas très efficace. Les captures viennent de l’application Maison sous macOS, c’est moins moche sur un iPhone ou un iPad, mais ça reste significativement en dessous.

Omna


Eufy


Omna


eufy


Omna


eufy

Dans le noir, rien à dire : le projecteur marche bien, c’est suffisant. Elle n’a pas de microphone en HomeKit, contrairement à d’autres (il est accessible dans l’application eufy). Mais elle a quand même deux (gros) avantages : HomeKit Secure Video (rare actuellement) et surtout le prix. Elle vaut 40 € quand la caméra Eve vaut ~150 € et la Circle View vaut officiellement 180 €. J’ai beaucoup plus confiance en Eve pour la sécurité, et elle ne nécessite pas de passer par une application dédiée pour l’installation, mais la différence de prix reste importante.

Je suis mitigé sur la mise en place – l’application n’inspire pas confiance – mais la caméra elle-même offre tout ce qui est nécessaire pour faire du HomeKit pas trop cher et de façon sécurisée. Apple indique que les vidéos sont chiffrées totalement, et les enregistrements ne prennent pas de place sur le cloud. A vous de voir si la qualité de l’image vous suffit.

UMBRA LIGHT FESTIVAL: Open Call

Par : Marco Savo



DEADLINE: 13 September 2020

The Iberian Peninsula has been a hotspot for audiovisual culture and new media arts for many years.

Groundbreaking events such as LEV Festival and Sonar (just to name a couple) have left an indisputable mark in the international AV panorama.

UMBRA Light Festival is a new audiovisual event in Vitoria-Gasteiz celebrating its second edition in February next year.

UMBRA is launching an open call for all audiovisual artists working the field of Light Art.

Umbra Festival - Open call
If you feel like exhibiting your work in the beautiful Basque Country, surrounded by lovely people and delicious food… Well, this might just do the trick!

The festival showcases projection mapping, audiovisual installations and light sculptures in order to develop a dialogue between new media and the urban context of the Basque Country capital city.

The participants have total freedom regarding the proposal theme. However proposals addressing environmental issues and/or United Nations  Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) will be highly valued by the jury.

These will be the main focus of the 2021 edition of UMBRA Light Festival.  The installations will be selected accordingly to the sculptural value and interactive implementation of art and light.

Umbra Light Festival - Open call
Javi Erriera - Berdeko Konstelazioa

The selection process will be finalized within one month after the submission deadline. All finalists will be notified individually by e-mail

Discovery Server (Ubuntu) PULL from source?

Hey folks!

Is it possible to PULL from a source in Discovery Server?

Scenario:
vMix running on Windows (192.168.1.101), with Access Manager configured to use Discovery Server (192.168.1.100)
vMix running on Windows (192.168.1.102), with Access Manager configured to use Discovery Server (192.168.1.100)

With the current scenario, both Windows machines can see all NDI outputs from vMix from both machines - this is working as expected.

New Scenario:
FFMPEG encoder running on Linux (192.168.1.103), with no Access Manager (coming soon, it seems) and no option to use a Discovery Server

With the new scenario, is it possible to have the Discover Server (192.168.1.100) PULL from an NDI source (192.168.1.103) so that the two Windows machines can see the NDI sources from the one Linux machine via the Discovery Server?

I stumbled upon the config file:
Code:

{
    "ndi": {
        "groups": {
            "recv": "\"public\"",
            "send": "\"public\""
        },
        "multicast": {
            "recv": {
                "enable": false,
                "subnets": ""
            },
            "send": {
                "enable": false,
                "netmask": "255.255.255.0",
                "netprefix": "239.192.136.100"
            }
        },
        "networks": {
            "discovery": "127.0.0.1",
            "ips": ""
        },
        "tcp": {
            "recv": {
                "enable": false
            },
            "send": {
                "enable": false
            }
        },
        "unicast": {
            "recv": {
                "enable": false
            },
            "send": {
                "enable": false
            }
        }
    }
}

I'm curious if that config can be modified to allow what I'm looking for?

NDI video color band

Par : slcf2003
I'm using Scan Converter on one computer as NDI source, and Studio Monitor to check the video quality. I happened to run a monitor gray scale test on the source computer, which basically is a grayscale gradient image. (http://www.lagom.nl/lcd-test/gradient.php). It looks smooth on the source computer, but in the Studio Monitor, I can see some color bands in the image. Is it normal? Is this something to do with the color depth?

I attached a screenshot. Hopefully it is visible here.

Recording NDI with Alpha Channel

Par : DanBrennan
Hi,

I was wondering if anyone has had any success recording an NDI feed with an alpha channel to be either taken into an NLE or for playback at a later time? I've tried the NDI Studio Monitor recording feature but doesn't seem to record with the alpha channel. Ideally, I would like to record some graphics with an Alpha Channel from an NDI source to be brought into premiere pro.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Dan.

KVM Scan Converter Mac

Par : streamteam
Is the KVM feature recently added to Scan Converter (basically Remote Desktop) available on Mac? I can see it on my Windows machine but not my Mac. Need to control PC from Mac.

Have a windows machine running vMix in back of church near where camera feeds come to it. Looking to use NDI and KVM as a low latency way to move the vMix operator to another room in the building so that they can mix the stream audio (X32 console Ethernet control) from an isolated location. But KVM doesn’t seem to be in the Mac toolset which is my second machine.

Scan Converter Mouse Capture

Par : drjliver
Hello everybody,

I have recently installed NDI Scan converter on my home network to do a dual-pc streaming setup for gaming on Twitch. I have everything working properly, but the only thing stopping me from using this setup is that the mouse is not captured properly which makes it very distracting. I have looked into this issue and see that the most recent version of NDI Scan Converter includes a "Capture Mouse Pointer" option, but it artificially turns on the "display pointer trails" setting in Windows. NDI's mouse-capture setting makes it feel slightly sluggish and have a very short trail, and if you tick the Windows pointer-trail setting on and back off again, the mouse cursor is no longer seen through the stream, even though NDI's mouse-capture setting is still enabled. For FPS type games where you dont see the cursor it isn't a problem, but I primarily play Dota 2 and StarCraft where the mouse cursor is essential for the viewers of the stream to see.

I have searched recent forum posts and read the manual and I can't seem to find any way to have NDI scan converter stream my mouse cursor and not having it be a distracting trail behind it which makes it very hard to play RTS type games. If anyone has any advice or workarounds please let me know.

My current setup is basically NDI scan converter from my gaming pc -> network -> streaming pc which broadcasts it to Twitch.

NDI Scan Converter for Mac and Zoom

Par : BHenry
New member and long time video engineer here. As you can imagine, I am trying to integrate Zoom calls into an NDI workflow to allow for more polished production for virtual meetings. I am unable to get Scan Converter for Mac to see any Zoom app window other than the main login screen when selecting among the various apps.

In addition, Is there any way to add the ROI feature found on the windows version? I am running multiple monitors on my machines, and don't need to see the entire desktop.

TIA

Xite Labs

Par : Marco Savo

Xite Labs is an audiovisual creative studio working at the intersection of art and technology, digital media and interaction design.

The team is formed by top-notch audiovisual artists who have left an unparalleled mark in the world of electronic music.

They have delivered off-socks-knocking 3D mapping installations since 2000, working with internationally renowned musicians such as Tame Impala, Infected Mushroom, Steve Aoki, Skrillex and Amon Tobin to name a few.

Audiovisual artist - projection mapping

We have been lucky enough to attend their mind-blowing audiovisual experience developed with Amon Tobin, for his international tour following the release of the album ISAM. That was back in 2012 at Sonar Festival in Barcelona.

Tobin’s avant-garde IDM soundscapes lead the way for the audiovisual storytelling who took the audience on a unforgettable journey. The show started with an otherworldly cube-shaped structure coming to life.

The stage then turned into a ship launched into space with Tobin residing in a hyper-sleep pod. After dream-like hallucinations Tobin comes out actually wearing the suits shown in the animation.

A complex audiovisual narrative that blurs the boundaries between real and digital world, firing all sorts of trickery to cleanse out the audience of all their spatial references. Only when we lose all the anchor points we are truly primed to experience the digital voyage.

ISAM takes us on a journey through the unexplored universe generated by the EDM soundscape of Amon Tobin to the bring us back to the core of the action: the musician and his performance.

In my opinion, Xite Labs major breakthrough is their ability to truly animate their installation, snapping out of the static AV sculpture by delivering an immersive experience where all senses are captured within the space.

Their audiovisual world is disorienting and astonishing as it builds up in front of our eyes, departing far away from the bidimensionality of the screen experience.

Audiovisual artists

Formed in the year 2000 as V Squared Labs by Vello E Virkhaus they have then merged with Tandem Digital Entertainment in 2018 to form XiteLabs.

Through the leadership of Greg Russell and Vello Virkhaus the audiovisual studio continuously executes next level experiential visual artistry.

The duo is always taking “never been done” concepts and turning them into reality. This process always starts with the blank page, and working with clients to define the words, scenery, illumination, content, interactivity, and the means to deliver it all.

NDI Monitor Mac window issues

Par : shadlx
Hello

It seems that on latest Mac OS (10.15.6 for me) there is no way to re-open the NDI Monitor window if it's closed without quitting and re-starting the app, when left open the app still runs happily however does nothing as the window is gone and will not come back. This feels like a bug!

Thanks

NDI studio - saving layouts

Hello

I may be being blind but I can't see a method of saving the layout of an NDI Studio session, each time I open it I am back to an empty screen. Is there any way to do this as it's really annoying having to set it all up each time..

Japan Media Arts Contest 2020

Par : Marco Savo

DEADLINE: 04 September 2020 18:00 (Japan standard time)

We are constantly scanning our map for new opportunities for audiovisual artists, especially outside the European network.

It is quite hard to map out the Asian audiovisual scene, mostly due to language barriers and different social media landscape.

Therefore we are very pleased to present you with this art contest for the Tokyo based media arts festival.

The Japan Media Arts Contest is a long-lasting institution reaching its 24th edition this year. The call is open to all audiovisual artists worldwide and encompasses the following categories:

Art Division | Entertainment Division | Animation Division | Manga Division
Open call for audiovisual artists
For each division the elected jury will award the following prizes, based on the artistic value and creativity of the artwork:

Grand Prize (1.000.000 JPY), Excellence Awards (500.000 JPY), Social Impact Award (500.000 JPY), New Face Awards (300.000 JPY), U-18 Award (certificate, trophy), Special Achievement Award (certificate).

It is interesting to notice the wide range of categories not necessarily related to the new media arts world. The inclusion of animation and manga highlights their wide recognition in the Japanese scene as special forms of art.

The Japan Media Arts Contest offers opportunities for young and emerging artists as well as recognized professionals making the audiovisual event a turning point every year for artistic innovation and excellency.

Japanese Media Arts Contest 2020

The Japan Media Arts Festival has been awarding prizes to outstanding artistic works since its establishment in 1997.

It is supported by The Agency of Cultural Affairs, Government of Japan to develop and promote the creation of Japanese and international media arts.

Through the annual Exhibition of Award-winning Works, the festival has offered the opportunity to the audience of directly appreciating these celebrated works.

The attendants are also invited to participate to the side events such as symposia, screenings and artists’ showcases.

NDI with no internet connection

Par : koubekad
Hello,
the title pretty much says it all. I am wondering if it is somehow possible to use NDI without an internet connection, only using localhost, because I am trying to make a sort of mobile recording system. When it is connected, the system works fine. Is it possible to somehow work around this? The OS I am using is Ubuntu 16.04.
I am grateful for any suggestions.

Have We Reached The Video Quality Threshold for Sub-$3000 Cameras?

We already have access to inexpensive, cinema-quality footage from a range of mirrorless cameras. So, what's next for this market?

local black screens when going fullscreen with NDI monitor on Mac

Good afternoon NewTek Peeps! (First post guys)

We have a foyer TV who's content is being sent by way of an iMac using NDI. We are using NDI Monitor to accomplish this temporarily. However, we find ourselves in a situation where the iMac is completely unusable while we use NDI Monitor to display to the TV. When we place the NDI Monitor app on the display which sends to the TV and click the Full Screen (green button) the video scales to fit the TV as it should, but all displays become overidden by NDI Monitor and displays a black image that must stay in the forefront (rendering the imac into a very expensive distribution box only).

Is there a way to make it so that NDI Monitor on the Mac only absorbs the desired display when going full screen on a Mac?

Currently this Mac is running 10.14.6 due to another application being incompatible with 10.15.

Thanks,
Me

NDI 4.5 scan convertor issues

Par : fgolman
Hello,

I've been having an issue, which seems that some others have had as well, whereby on a certain laptop NDI 4.5 Scan Convertor will run for a few seconds and then die.

This is on a little older laptop with only Intel graphics chipset (EG, no NVidia secondary).

Please note that the older NDI Portable Scan Convertor runs just fine.

However, I want to take advantage of the internal webcam redirect and this situation is keeping that from happening. BTW, it isn't even if I attempt to set that webcam redirect up, I'll just launch Scan Convertor, which begins working, then in 10-15 seconds it disappears from the system tray and it's dead without doing anything.

I was looking for an earlier version of Scan Convertor, 4.0, to see if this happens. Can anyone direct me to an archive or such? Alternatively, if anyone has had any experience with resolving this, I'd appreciate it. I've looked through the Forum and hadn't seen anything.

FWIW, I think it was running OK up to recently. There may be some potential DLL conflicts? Anyone with experience with that would be helpful.

UPDATE 1: Though not solved, I've been able to replicate the issue and find an acceptable work-around. If other devices are configured to pull the scan convertor stream and they are running, the app will fail on startup. IF, however, there are NO other devices attempting to pull the stream when starting the app, then it will start normally and continue to run ... so it's a matter to configure the pull of the stream AFTER starting the app. If anyone has had similar problem it would likely be good to put this into support as a possible bug?

UPDATE 2: Well, thought I'd gotten a good work-around but the procedure above only holds the connection for a couple of minutes. Strange. Anyone?

UPDATE 3: I installed VMix Desktop Capture and that's working OK. I'll end up using that for the moment until these issues are resolved.

Thanks!

NDI Virtual Input for Mac works with Zoom but not with Skype

Par : mikaelb
Thanks so much for the free tools for the Mac and iPhone!

I am using NDIHXCamera on my iPhone and NDI Virtual Input 1.0 on my Mac (OS v10.15.5). Zoom can see and use my iPhone as a camera and microphone, but Skype (v8.62.0.85) cannot see the camera. It can only see the microphone. FaceTime can also only see the microphone and not the camera.

I've also installed NewTekNDIHXDriverForMac.pkg.

Any help would be appreciated!
