Hi,

I just realized that Newtek has released NDI Tools 4.6. The Download Page still says 4.5 but if you download the tools it is version 4.6.

I found no changelog but for me I think it runs smoother.

Changes I found:

  • NDI Scan Coverter is now NDI Screen Capture
  • Screen Capture HX (uses NVDIA GPU, Full resolution screen capture up to 4K, at frame-rates up to 120 Hz, dedicated encoding pipeline on NVIDIA hardware, Incredibly low latency screen capture)
  • NDI Virtual Input is now NDI Webcam Input


If someone has a changelog, post it.

greetings

I think Screen Capture HX is for dedicated Nvdia GPU's only.
I Tested it with a discrete GPU and it just shows a black screen, because the output is coming through the Intel GPU.
With a dedicated Nvidia GPU evrthing is working fine and clear synced Audio.

I don't know. I did't find any changelog or doucumentation yet. What I know is that it is working with dedicated Nvidia GPU's and for descrete GPU's I am still using the the normal NDI Screen Capture Software.

Hi, I downloaded it from the normal Download Page, check first post. You have to fill out the form and Newtek sends you the Link. You can see it during installation process, If there is the point webcam input or NDI Capture HX, then it's version 4.6.

You can also check the Version if you go to the Installation path (C:\Program Files\NewTek\NDI 4 Tools\Runtime) there right click Processing.NDI.Lib.x64.dll an choose properties. The under Details you can check your installed NDI Version.

Hope it helps

Hi all,

and again, a new Verion of NDI Tools.

It's really difficult to keep track of the updates. The full version number is not even displayed in the Windows Control Panel.
The only way to find the full version number is to examine the dll in the installation folder. I don't understand why Newtek doesn't just display the version number in the control panel and simply put a changelog as a text file in the installation folder.

Go to the runtime folder of Newtek NDI Tools (C:\Program Files\NewTek\NDI 4 Tools\Runtime) then right-click on Processing.NDI.Lib.x64.dll and select Properties.
In the Details tab you can see the current version number.

I have just downloaded and installed the current version from the homepage.

Now it's even version 4.6.1.0 and again no changelog.

In case you want to upgrade NDI version in vMix manually see this official guide from the knowledge base
