At NAB 2016, NewTek announced NDI for Adobe Creative Cloud, a software plug-in with NewTek’s Network Device Interface (NDI) technology.
The NDI integration enables users of Adobe Premiere Pro CC, Adobe After EffectsCC and other Adobe Creative Cloud applications to send real-time video and audio to any NDI-enabled receiving product, such as production switchers or capture cards, across a standard Ethernet network. With NDI for AdobeCreative Cloud, creators and producers can significantly accelerate their pre- and post-production pipelines ,bypassing rendering and uploading of creative elements for a faster, more efficient delivery for content review and approval. It also allows teams in different locations to work together in one interface in real-time, making creative decisions collaboratively and saving valuable time in the process.
The NDI integration for products in AdobeCreative Cloud also enables just-in-time editing workflows over IP for live production environments, such as news programmes and live sporting events. Producers will be able to deliver edited content, including key and fill, directly from the Adobe Premiere Pro CC timeline into their production switcher for use on-air, without needing to render and push to playout servers.
“NDI for Adobe Creative Cloud transforms the workflows for Adobe Premiere Pro CC and After Effects CC users by making creative elements visible on virtually any screen or any output on their local area network in full resolution,” said Michael Kornet, executive vice president of Business Development for NewTek. “The creative efficiencies plus time and cost savings to be gained represents a breakthrough across the board in all traditional pre-, live-, and post-production workflows.”
NDI, the new standard for live production IP workflow, is bi-directional and backwards compatible with a large number of devices from top manufacturers already utilising NewTek’s open standard allowing IP connectivity between devices. NDI is now available as a royalty free software developer kit (SDK) for any company looking to establish IP workflows within their organisation, or in production tools and systems they manufacture.
At NAB 2016, Adobe previewed updates for its Creative Cloud video and audio tools - including Adobe Premiere Pro CC, After Effects CC, Adobe Audition CC, Adobe Media Encoder CC and Prelude CC - and showing Adobe Anywhere, Adobe Stock and Adobe Primetime.
