Atomos has developed a full implementation of the NDI |HX standard for Atomos CONNECT and SHOGUN CONNECT. NDI technology has been developed to make communication between devices on local network (LAN) easy to setup, provide refined encoding and deliver frame-accurate video. Initial support will be for NDI|HX encode (to act as an NDI source or transmission device) and with a software update later this year Atomos will introduce NDI|HX decode (to receive the NDI source signal for viewing and recording). This will enable customers to share the picture between multiple devices locally and select a specific device (or devices) to record the NDI encoded file.
