# Sending and receiving content via NDI

You can stream the entire conference layout or a separate video window via NDA in the local network. It is possible to broadcast multiple NDI streams in parallel.

It is not possible to broadcast a video window with shared content as a separate NDI stream.

To ensure stable work when streaming via NDI, we recommend using a wired connection of TrueConf Room to the local network. Wi-Fi bandwidth might not be sufficient for transmitting high-quality media streams broadcast via NDI.

# Streaming the general layout

To stream the conference layout with audio, you will need to:

  1. Click the Change layout button in the conference control panel.

  2. Click on the NDI button in the lower part of the screen.

  3. Click on the Enable button to confirm that you want to send a mixed stream via NDA.

# Streaming a slideshow

To stream a slideshow, do the following:

  1. Click on the Slideshow button in the meeting control panel.

  2. Activate the switcher Show slides via NDI which is in the lower part of menu.

# Streaming a participant’s video window

To stream a participant’s video window with audio, you will need to:

  1. Click on the Participants button in the meeting control panel.

  2. Click on the /room/media/gui/more/en.png button which is right next to a participant’s name. Then select the Enable NDI option.

  3. The participant will have the /room/media/gui/ndi/en.png status: it indicates that NDI has been enabled.

# Receiving an NDI steam

To capture an NDI stream and send it to the conference layout, go to device settings and select the stream instead of the camera and/or microphone.

Please note that you will not be able to share video and audio from your camera and microphone when capturing an incoming NDI stream.
