Desktop Presenter vs NDI

Please pardon my ignorance but when would you use DTP vs now the new I/O NDI protocol that 7.6/7.7 now supports?

  • I don't think you would. NDI seems superior to me in every way thus far.

  • It may be an ease of use decision but ultimately NDI may be the way forward. 
    You may want to do a direct comparison to get a feel for the differences.

  • Thanks Adam and CraigS for the quick replies.

    So, it seems like NDI is truly a faster, lower latency, overall better option to bring in not only Presentation Computers w/ PowerPoint / Keynote Slides, but Skype / Video Chat computers, or networked camera feeds, etc?

    I assume it handles audio and video and keeps them in sync too?

    Will definitely have to test.

  • I tested desktop presenter and NDI in a short test.   NDI worked very fast and stable. DTP had issues when I started changing the IP address.   The added value of NDI is (1) In the sources menu of wirecast 9, you find the broadcasting PC/MAC directly so no IP must be typed, and (2) I guess that this means that the PC/MAC can change IP address and the NDI source would remain OK.
