    I'm not aware of a PDF.

    In Access Manager, check on the 'Multicast Sending Enabled' checkbox. Unless you have a reason to change it, the default IP and mask should be good.

    This is only part of what you need. You need to make sure that on all of your network switches, that IGMP Snooping is enabled. This will require a managed switched and ALL switches on the network subnet need to support this feature. Also multicast traffic needs to be allowed on the network.

    Finally, the other NDI devices need to be fairly current in software. Very old versions of NDI do not support multicast (anything previous to NDI 3.0). If you are using an old application like this, they will continue to work, but operate in unicast mode even when multicast is enabled. Probably any software released within the last year should have NDI with multicast support.

    To add to Kane's comments - I was told not so long ago that whilst Multicast SENDING is supported on macOS and Linux, Multicast RECEIVE is not currently.
    So, even if you opt to send Multicast, any macOS or Linux receivers may enforce a unicast UDP or TCP connection.

    Perhaps Kane could get clarification of that in order to fully conclude this thread.
