ViewMaster VR Pro

NDI® enabled multiviewer


ViewMaster VR Pro is the multi-output version of ViewMaster VR, bringing all the functionality of our NDI multiviewer to a multi-monitor environment with up to four separate multiviewer outputs supported.

As with ViewMaster VR, each of the ViewMaster VR Pro multiviewer outputs can be configured to generate a unique NDI source with audio on the network, which can be used for monitoring purposes. The audio can be selected from any of the sources in the multiview.


ViewMaster VR is the latest addition to our evolving NDI® tools. It’s a simple-to-use, elegantly designed multiviewer, which takes multiple NDI sources and combines them to create attractive and flexible layouts on a single screen, allowing you to quickly and easily see the sources available.

Its HDMI output is ideal for a wide range of monitors and its NDI® output with selectable audio allows you to view and monitor the display anywhere on your network.


Get a clear overview of available sources all on a single screen.


ViewMaster integrates seamlessly with RouteMaster  VR and RouteMaster VR  Lite and works with other third-party NDI® products.


Use ViewMaster’s configuration webpage to layout your multiviewer exactly as you want it.

Configure Your View

ViewMaster VR can display up to 36 NDI sources in a variety of different layouts configured via a webpage.  Webpage configuration supports NDI source names as well as allowing users to easily name sources to fit required workflows. The name of each source is clearly displayed, and you can easily select what sources to view. ViewMaster VR also supports NDI tallies, showing at a glance which sources are in Preview and Live.

Stereo, quad and 5.1 audio metering are available as well as the ability to hear the audio on a chosen source. A loss of video on any source is clearly displayed to the operators.

Seamless Integration

ViewMaster VR works seamlessly with RouteMaster VR Lite, our powerful and flexible routing application for NDI®. ViewMaster VR can directly display router sources or destinations, along with their configured names. ViewMaster VR – in “switch” mode – can also route video simply by clicking on the required PiP.

ViewMaster VR also works with RouteMaster VR  for those who want additional flexibility and configuration options. Please get in touch to discuss your precise requirements.

Case Study: MultiViewer solves issues for European broadcaster

A European broadcast customer was in the process of building an NDI® facility when they came across the issue of easily viewing multiple inputs and outputs and being able to easily configure those views. We used our years of expertise and the power of Helm to create ViewMaster VR.

We took advantage of the capabilities of Helm, specifically Helm Designer, to develop a standalone, easy-to-use and technically powerful multiviewer application for NDI® that does exactly what’s required. ViewMaster VR immediately solved their issue, as, of course, it will do for many others across broadcast, A/V and streaming applications.
