macOS ndi desktop source monitor
NDI Monitor allows monitoring of broadcast NDI and NDI HX Sources using a desktop macOS computer. Audio is also monitored, and sources with an alpha channel are keyed against a checkerboard background.
NDI Monitor automatically finds all NDI source on the local area network and adds them to the source selection popup menu.
There is also a checkbox to use a Low Bandwidth NDI connection to the source, and audio mute and a frame rate indicator.
NDI Monitor also features a URL Schema designed to support future workflows driven by MOS Automation. An ndi:// URL can be copied which is passed through automation workflows for later use by an NDI playout system or remote live link in news or sports production.
Version 4.0 introduces support for NDI PTZ Control with a popup panel which drives remote PTZ systems. Control of PTZ is via the onscreen joystick, keyboard shortcuts or using a supported 3D Spacemouse controller (see manual for model compatibility).
