Ventuz Moves into IP-based Workflows for Professional Video with NDI Support

Munich, July 20, 2016
Ventuz Technology released the newest version of its real-time graphics software Ventuz on Wednesday las. Version 5.1 supports the NDI protocol, which was developed by Newtek and is able to turn any LAN environment into a live production infrastructure.

As the industry is striving to establish professional video over IP as the new standard, Ventuz Technology is now presenting a solution that offers increased flexibility for video workflows while reducing hardware complexity and costs. By implementing the NDI protocol by Newtek, the Ventuz software suite can now handle high-quality video that is streamed via standard ethernet networks.

“We are proud to announce that the newest version of Ventuz is now perfectly equipped for professional video over IP”, said Erik Beaumont, CEO of Ventuz Technology. “The NDI protocol is a holistic solution, since it offers maximum flexibility while minimizing the need for additional video hardware. From presentations to conferences and broadcast studios, this feature will significantly simplify our clients’ workflows.”

NDI support is available with the new release of Ventuz 5, version 5.1, which can be downloaded on the Ventuz Technology website now. Another feature that has been introduced with the new release is the incorporation of Emojis into text elements. Among the supported Emoji sets are the ones offered by Google, Apple and Twitter. To make this feature possible, an SVG rasterizer has been added to Ventuz, which can also be used to bring other vector graphics into Ventuz and thereby widens the scope of file formats compatible with the software. Additionally, the Ventuz development team has made another step towards photo realistic graphics by implementing Scene Space Ambient Occlusion for dynamic real-time shadows.

Ventuz will be introducing these novelties to the public in an introductory webinar which is to be held on September 14th. Attendance will be free of charge. Participants can register on the Ventuz Technology website.
