With NDI® 5, video and audio workflows that were originally not possible, are now, possible. With no additional audio hardware, you can encode audio sources as NDI®, straight out of your Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) and can just as easily ingest any NDI sources as audio within the same session. Audio Direct, the new NDI® Tools plugin, comes in VST and LV2 variants and can be used within any DAW that supports those plugin formats. The number of achievable use cases for this new plugin is immense and can completely change the way we think about audio within the video broadcast and pro audio landscapes alike.
