ViewMaster

The NDI Multiviewer

VIEWMASTER

ViewMaster is the latest addition to our evolving NDI® ecosystem. It’s a simple-to-use, elegantly designed NDI multiviewer, which takes multiple video and audio streams and combines them to create attractive and flexible layouts on a single screen, allowing you to quickly and easily see the streams available. Its HDMI output is ideal for a wide range of monitors.

Combine

Get a clear overview of all video and audio streams available all on a single screen.

FLEXIBLE

ViewMaster integrates seamlessly with RouteMaster and RouteMaster Lite and works with any third-party NDI system.

CUSTOM

Use ViewMaster’s custom configuration tool to display inputs and outputs exactly how you want them.

Configure Your View

Using ViewMaster and it’s clear and intuitive configuration tool, it can be set up to display up to a maximum of 5×5 router input windows or output windows and is easily switchable between the two. The name of each stream is clearly displayed, and you can easily select what NDI sources/destinations you want to see. ViewMaster can also be adjusted when it comes to showing tallies – program and preview – as well audio metering. Stereo and quad metering are available as well as the ability to hear the audio on a chosen stream.

Seamless Integration

ViewMaster works seamlessly with RouteMaster Lite, our powerful and flexible stream management and NDI® routing application. Of course, it also works in any NDI system alongside third-party technologies.

ViewMaster also works with our RouteMaster router control application in the NDI domain 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 ecosystem 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.

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