Atomos Connect.

Atomos has announced the integration of NDI technology across the entire Connect product range as an instantly recognizable source by other NDI-enabled applications and devices connected to a standard local area network.

NDI, a Vizrt Group company, is a software-defined standard enabling bi-directional sharing of video and audio sources across local area and wide area networks. Using NDI eliminates the need for cabling and infrastructure, while also enabling production teams to stay native in NDI, reducing complexity, cost, and footprint, as well as providing refined encoding/decoding and delivering frame-accurate video.

To spearhead the NDI partnership, Atomos integrated NDI®|HX in the new Zato Connect, Atomos Connect, and Shogun Connect. Initial NDI support for encoding will be available in Q3 with an update in Q4 2022 for decoding. This update enables Atomos customers to share images and content between multiple devices locally and select a specific device (or devices) to record the incoming signal.

The newest iteration of NDI|HX, NDI|HX3, offers both low bandwidth and low latency options for end-users. With NDI|HX3, encoding is visually lossless, even in bandwidth constrained environments, enabling Atomos customers to expand the use case and versatility of the Connect products by sharing video between team members and adding the ability to record content on different devices.

Atomos CEO Trevor Elbourne said the addition of NDI had been on the company’s internal roadmap for some time.

“Given NDI provides such a well-known, trusted, and powerful IP-video workflow, we can offer more versatility to our customers and increase the value of their investment in Atomos technology,” he said.

“When it comes to sharing video across devices, we see immense potential for collaboration, flexible system design, and redundancy, we’re excited really to see where our customers will take this innovation.”
