At Mjoll, we are committed to developing innovative solutions that empower broadcasters and production teams to create seamless cloud-first workflows.
Our video collaboration product has already made strides by supporting live SDI and ST2110 ingestion through the AWS Elemental Live box, providing a robust infrastructure for content creators. We are excited to announce our latest breakthrough – Mimir now supports live Network Device Interface (NDI) ingestion. In this blog post, we will explore the numerous opportunities this new feature presents to our users.
What is NDI?
NDI, or Network Device Interface, is a royalty-free software standard developed by NewTek that enables video-compatible products to share video, audio, and data across interconnected networks. With NDI, users can encode, transmit, and receive multiple streams of high-quality, low-latency video and audio in real time.
How Live NDI Ingestion Enhances Mimir's Capabilities
Simplified Connectivity and Scalability
By integrating live NDI ingestion into Mimir, we are making it easier than ever for broadcasters to connect a wide range of devices and software applications without the need for expensive and complex hardware. This simplifies the overall setup and makes it more accessible to a broader range of users. Additionally, NDI's flexibility enables seamless scalability, allowing for the smooth expansion of your production environment as your needs grow.
Reduced Costs and Infrastructure Complexity
NDI's ability to transmit video over IP networks helps reduce the need for dedicated hardware and cabling, ultimately lowering costs for broadcasters and production teams. By utilizing existing network infrastructure, Mimir users can further minimize expenses and simplify their setups, allowing for more efficient and cost-effective workflows.
Enhanced Remote Production Capabilities
With live NDI ingestion, Mimir can now facilitate even more advanced remote production workflows. This means that teams can collaborate from various locations, leveraging the power of the cloud to produce and distribute high-quality content with ease. This not only increases efficiency but also allows for a more diverse and global team of collaborators.
Improved Interoperability and Flexibility
NDI's open nature and compatibility with a wide range of devices and software applications make it an ideal choice for broadcasters looking for increased flexibility in their workflows. With Mimir's new live NDI ingestion capabilities, users can now integrate a vast array of NDI-compatible equipment into their cloud-first workflows, opening up new creative possibilities.
Faster Time to Market
With the simplification of setup, reduced infrastructure complexity, and improved remote production capabilities, Mimir users can now bring content to market more quickly than ever before. This means broadcasters can be more agile and responsive to the ever-changing demands of their audiences.
Mimir's latest advancement in live NDI ingestion unlocks a world of opportunities for broadcasters and production teams, revolutionizing cloud-based video collaboration. With simplified connectivity, reduced costs, enhanced remote production capabilities, improved interoperability, and faster time to market, Mimir is empowering content creators to push the boundaries of what's possible in the realm of cloud-first workflows.
