Hey,

I am interested in a 3rd party NDI capable camera that transmits over wifi, specifically wireless-N. It is a 4k 30fps camera. If i have 3 of these cameras on the same wifi router sending data to my desktop for live streaming will a single wireless-N router be able to handle 3 NDI streams.

I'm not aware of a 4k/30p camera on the market with direct NDI output at this time. I'm also not 100% sure there are NDI adapters that handle 4k just yet, either - perhaps someone else will know.

(Edit: I guess NDI Connect Pro can handle 4k, but I don't think this is what you're after.)

Hey Steve,

I am referring to this product. Its website says It will be released in October. I wanted to use 3 of them but i dont think wifi will be able to handle three at a time. So i just wanted to check with you guys.

This is the product that i was referring too http://vyoocam.com. It should be released around October. So, using 3 of them at the same time might stress a wireless-n network.

I'm going to just say it, this is not a realistic solution.

There aren't any 4K/UHD NDI cameras available on the market right now. Even when that happens, you would expect that data rate for NDI would be around 200mbit/s per UHD30p source. It is very difficult to get 1080 NDI on a WiFi network, going double that per stream (then trying to get 3 streams on top of that) is not going to work, let alone that the plan is to use Wireless-N (and I wouldn't expect that Wireless-AC will make much of a difference).

You need to be looking at wired Ethernet being part of this solution.

This all said, it is a cool idea - maybe just a little ahead of the current tech curve. :)
