Video Transport, often referred to as VT, was first introduced as a way to stream NDI® over the Internet. It is an easy-to-use tool to send video over the Internet for 3 groups of scenarios: remote contribution (remote production), low-latency return link delivery or program feed monitoring and connecting remotely located SDI or NDI® workflows. With Video Transport, production teams can decrease contribution latency, improve production quality and keep their workflow under control.
Our low latency video streaming solution consists of several tools that can be used in different combinations depending on the particular use case:
VT Publisher – a Windows app that makes selected NDI® or SDI feeds receivable by other tools in the solution.
VT Receiver – a Windows app that can receive remote feeds from VT Publisher, VT Guest and the Guest Link and make them locally available as NDI® or SDI feeds.
VT Guest – a Windows app for remote anchors that grabs the speakers camera and displays the return feed from the studio.
The Guest Link – a web page to use for remote contribution, allowing anyone to take part in a video production via almost any device.
The Preview Link – a web-page that renders a feed received from the Publisher.
VT Server – a UI-less combination of both Publisher and Receiver.
The web-based Control Panel – a way to control and monitor feeds via a browser-based interface.
All Video Transport tools are free to try and are available via a single download.
Video Transport is designed to perform one important function: transfer video feeds between locations. It is not locked in within specific vendors or ecosystems and is designed to integrate seamlessly with two most common video workflows – NDI® and SDI (all VT applications support both on input and output). VT also merges the gap between broadcast workflows and the browser, allowing to both view feeds in low latency and contribute via a web camera.
Video Transport is a video transmission technology based on our R&D in SRT and WebRTC. Video Transport applications are powered by MFormats, a Medialooks video SDK. To learn more about SRT, read our interview with the architect, Marc Cymontkowski.
