NDI (Network Device Interface) is a network protocol that enables audio, video, and metadata signals to be sent over standard networks in real-time. NDI is bidirectional, has low latency, and can transmit video up to 4K and beyond. You can live stream NDI Feeds in OBS and Muvi Live and allow your end-users to enjoy buffer-free live streaming. First, you need to install the NDI plugin in your device for OBS and then configure it for live streaming.
