Hi all,
This is the first time run NDI system on my own media server
All i need is to capture the screen from 3-4 laptops
Also i don't need latency or delaying to my system

I read more articles about the best switches but i need your support to suggest Brand and model to buy please

I found in the suggestions the switch must be with the zero "Buffer Memory" for zero latency or delaying

Also the switch must have QoS and non-block options

I don't know if i really need these options or not
I don't know if i need Managed or unmanaged Switch

So please suggest Switch model for me
8 or 16 ports

Thanks for your support

This is overthinking it. Switches don't themselves buffer anything substantially. At least not relative to video frame rates.

If you're not familiar with network administration a managed switch is more headache than it's worth.

Your situation would be readily handled using a simple, unmanaged switch.

For unmanaged switches I like Netgear: https://amzn.to/2FEmTES
