Using the built-in streaming encoder and recorder. You can easily live stream to multiple platforms and record your show to an SD card. Six video channels can be ISO recorded at the same time in order to provide you with more program materials for post-production. iCAST 10NDI is definitely a highly efficient and easy-to-use solution for video streaming and recording.

Multiple video input interfaces

iCAST 10NDI has five video inputs with one SDI/HDMI selectable port, three HDMI-only ports, and one USB 3.0 port. iCAST 10NDI accepts videos from various professional cameras, laptops, and document cameras.

You can also receive IP videos via an RJ-45 port. IP videos are streamed using RTMP(S) or SRT protocol. With a variety of video interfaces, you no longer need to worry about the compatibility of different video devices.

Dual Multiview Modes

iCAST 10NDI provides an intuitive preview of your output sources. You can view them either horizontally or vertically (a new technology for viewing videos on mobile devices) and preview these mode changes on a Multiview screen.

Multiple PGM Modes

In addition to displaying a full-screen view of the program out the video, you can also stream the four input videos live
to your audience.

The iCAST 10NDI offers five Multiview layouts to allow you to show your input videos all at the same time. The videos can be streamed to all corners of the world and your audience can, with zero delays, participate in your events using a receiver/decoder, personal mobile device, or a computer.

Stream OUT

You no longer need multiple devices to stream your video to multiple platforms. This is now achievable with one iCAST 10NDI. iCAST 10NDI supports NDI | HX input and output. Another alternative is to broadcast a quality low latency video transmission.

Decode up to 3 NDI channels

One Ethernet Cable with NDI | HX Technology, There is no need for multiple cables and a complicated setup. The single-wire concept helps you to decode video and audio over only one Ethernet cable for live video switching. NDI is a registered trademark of Newtek, Inc.

Vertical streaming appropriate for video playback on social media

Of all videos streamed, up to 50% of videos are viewed on mobile devices and 94% of mobile users hold the phone vertically to view the video. iCAST 10NDI provides vertical streaming which can be generated with only a few basic settings. Auto capturing of the image in the center for vertical streaming. Rotate the camera 90 degrees directly.

Supporting SRT protocol so that iCAST 10NDI works well even when you have low bandwidth

Video latency often results when there is insufficient network bandwidth. iCAST-10 supports SRT protocol which mitigates packet loss when the network becomes unstable. Sometimes RTMP may give you a stuttering viewing experience but SRT will solve your problem.

Add dvCloud to enhance your streaming experience

dvCloud, a paid service, is a professional streaming platform developed by Datavideo. Once you’ve logged in, you can manage all the streaming channels that you have created. You can stream your video to at most 25 platforms at the same time without any time limit while backing up the video on the cloud automatically for future downloads. iCAST 10NDI, SRT, and dvCloud form a low latency, secure, and reliable streaming workflow.

Recording: Easy-to-read LED indicator

A protruding frame-like LED indicator allows you to easily see its color. A red indicator means that the video is being recorded and a green indicator appears when the record function enters standby mode. The 2″ LCD screen on iCAST 10NDI allows you to view the record status of all video channels.

ISO recording of five video inputs and one main program output

ISO recording refers to the ability to create isolated recordings of your five camera inputs and one PGM output for video backup and adding visual effects during post-production. ISO recording allows you to save your data locally or on a file server.

Multi-Channel Audio Mixing and Audio-to-Video Synchronization

In addition to embedded audio, we have also provided input ports for external audio such as an XLR port for connecting microphones, and RCA terminals for audio players.

Web audio, the most popular audio source, is another external audio source. You can easily perform professional audio mixing with iCAST 10NDI and at the same time switch between AES and EBU modes so that your output audio will always be compatible with various audio systems in different countries without issues such as unstable audio volume and the audio and video out of sync error.

Audio Delay

iCAST 10NDI is capable of independently delaying each audio channel by adjusting the delay time in order to eliminate the audio and video out-of-sync error.

Character Generation

Datavideo iCAST 10NDI allows you to add graphic elements such as logos, titles, text, and images to any input video channels or the program output. You can add course chapter text or workflow diagram images to your program.
