CueTimer Outputs

Send the countdown to NDI devices

CueTimer has a native NDI output, which makes it easy to send the countdown to any device on the local network that can display NDI. 

Explore the power of NDI

NDI (Network Device Interface) is a royalty-free software standard for video-over-IP production technology that allows multiple video systems to identify and communicate with one another over IP networks. It provides benefits such as increased flexibility in live video production, lower costs, and ease of use by allowing the use of standard Ethernet networks for video, audio and metadata transfer.

NDI allows video sources to be used in any production environment, enabling more devices to be used as video sources and making it easier to share video content between multiple production systems.
