RouteMaster Lite

Virtual router for NewTek NDI® Video

RouteMaster Lite : Only £1,395.00 + VAT


RouteMaster Lite is a virtual router for Newtek NDI® video. It’s based on our proven RouteMaster system and is particularly suitable for OB and production environments, supporting up to 20 sources and 20 destinations. It gives operators in an NDI environment familiar, and therefore easy-to-use, router control interfaces.

One of the key issues with working in the video-over-IP domain is that while taking advantage of the connectivity it allows, operators must still be presented with interfaces with which they are familiar and can use in the heat of the moment.

RouteMaster Lite can be controlled in several ways:
  • Directly from the main RouteMaster Lite UI
  • From Web Panels served by the integrated web server
  • From familiar hardware panels like Blackmagic Design Smart Control
  • Or from third-party software which supports the Blackmagic VideoHub protocol

You can use all these control methods simultaneously.


NDI, NewTek’s innovative Network Device Interface technology, is a royalty-free standard enabling IP video workflows across Ethernet networks.

NDI is a bi-directional standard that allows video systems to identify and communicate with one another over IP, and to encode, transmit, and receive multiple streams of broadcast-quality, low latency, frame-accurate video and audio in real time.
