Sienna NDI® Monitor for MacOS
April 27, 2018 by Chuck Baker
Sienna has produced a suite of IP-based video production tools for Mac systems and iOS devices using NewTek’s royalty-free NDI® technology for bi-directional transport of video, audio, metadata and communications on standard networks, at high-quality and with very low latency. In this video, Sienna demonstrates the capabilities of their NDI Monitor application. More than just the ability to view NDI streams, the application offers interaction and control with other NDI-enabled devices.
Among the capabilities:
- Control Tally operation
- Control bandwidth and quality level for monitoring
- Senses NDI PTZ cameras and pops up controls in the Monitor window
- Set options for PTZ controls
- Toggle display of frame rate and time code
- Audio Mute
- Lots more…
A cool tip offered in the video is that a 3Dconnexion SpaceMouse® connected to a system running the Monitor application can be used to operate an NDI-enabled PTZ camera.
