Bryan Nelson is Guest Speaker on SMPTE webinar

Bryan Nelson, Alpha Video’s resident NDI expert, was asked to present on remote production workflows as part of a recent “Work-from-Home: Media Consumption in the Age of Covid-19” national webcast hosted by the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE). The SMPTE organization includes more than 7,000 members worldwide and includes motion-imaging executives, broadcast engineers, creatives, technologists, researchers, and students who volunteer their time.

Remote Studio Productions Using NDI

NDI remote workflows allow live productions to be virtualized by hosting all of the routing and signal processing in the cloud. HD-SDI sources are converted to NDI and streamed through the public internet. Cloud services like AWS, Google Cloud, or Microsoft Azure host the NDI processing and routing software. Producers and directors can use local laptop software or IP-based hardware to monitor, switch, and insert graphics.
