    "Video over Ethernet: It's Here and It's Cool"
    IP Video is here, the next big leap in video technology. But it’s more than just streaming video from point to point over Ethernet. NDI (Network Device Interface) makes cameras, recorders, editors, computers, and other devices accessible, and in some cases, controllable over a basic network. And every video device on an NDI network can be a source, or destination, or both to every other device on the network. This seminar discusses the basics of IP Video and includes a demonstration of NDI technology. We’ll also talk about video production in the age of IP Video and discuss how this new tech can enhance existing video production infrastructures.
