News: Kosada’s Vuo Pro adds new network video streaming capability with NDI®
(Athens, OH--July 10, 2020) Kosada’s Vuo Pro, an application to create interactive video projects using simple building blocks, now supports sending and receiving video using NDI®. Vuo's node-based architecture gives video professionals using a macOS-based workflow the flexibility to create a custom real-time video pipeline that fits their organization's unique needs. With the increased prominence of live streaming, Vuo’s graphic abilities paired with NDI® now gives producers a new tool to create and broadcast one-of-a-kind visuals.
NDI is a brand of the Vizrt Group and a royalty-free technology that allows video and audio sources to be shared bi-directionally across a network, eliminating the need for costly direct connections, expensive cable runs, and infrastructure upgrades while turning every source into a destination instantly available anywhere on the network.
“Software-driven IP workflows have become ubiquitous in video production,” said Michael Kornet, vice president, NDI. “NDI-enabled software like Kosada’s Vuo Pro exponentially increase the video sources available for live production creating efficiencies and opportunities for customers that did not previously exist. NDI is the most widely adopted IP technology on the market, epitomized by the millions of customers with access to it today.”
With the release of Vuo Pro 2.1, media creators can use Vuo Pro’s NDI® building blocks to expand their broadcast capabilities.

Vuo, for macOS, lets media creators make interactive animations, exhibits, performances, and professional-grade media projects by connecting up simple building blocks. Media creators can use these blocks to manipulate audio input, images, layers, videos, and 2D + 3D graphics, as well as record high-quality video of the results. With the additional functionality of Vuo Pro, media professionals can export FxPlug plug-ins, FFGL plug-ins for macOS, macOS screen savers, and record and export video with antialiasing and motion blur. Vuo Pro includes face detection, Blackmagic input and output, 3D stereoscopic rendering, fisheye camera, projection warping, content aware transformations to images, and NewTek NDI® for video streaming.
