Support for Newtek NDI as Display Outputs

NDI - Network Device Interface
Is a cross platform royalty free Video Over IP technology. Predominantly used in Broadcast and Webcast type events but gaining popularity in other areas such as Digital Signage.
Any computer can be an NDI Receiver so you can show presentation on many displays on a network.
You can by dedicated NDI Receivers
Ideally we would have the option to send PresenterView and PresentationView as separate NDI Sources.

    Yes. Please NDI is essential for PowerPoint -- for so many reasons, Offices need NDI for more efficient PowerPoint sharing, Community organizations need NDI to reach their followers, the list goes on and on.

    Surely PowerPoint will one day have NDI added -- so why not make this happen sooner than later?

    Thanks!

    Plus, allow NDI to act as a virtual second monitor to allow presenter view on the laptop screen while sending the presentation via NDI.

    PPt with NDI implementation would make the app relevant in a lot of common applications.

    Media IP workflow is no longer a wish. It is a reality. It is here. Ke nako!

    Apps, in this instance PP, with native NDI is a way to keep the app relevant.

    I'd love NDI output support implemented for both Windows and Mac Powerpoint :)

    NDI is a technology that is gaining a lot of momentum.

    It's already been added to Skype!

    NDI as a virtual monitor would solve a multitude of issues concerning using PPT in professional, and non-traditional situations. Particularly, when using powerpoint across non-standard resolutions on professional video cards utilizing Mosaic or Eyefinity multi-screen outputs. Currently, this is a bad situation over all, NDI directly out would allow so much more flexibility.

    In a perfect world, you would be able to send the NDI signal with a CUSTOM USER DEFINED resolution, not just what the power point is set to. The PPT should scale accordingly. This would be a gamechanger.

    NDI for PowerPoint would be amazing! I currently use Scan Convertor to output my PP from a Laptop and works well but would be great to just have the output/input.

    This would be useful in so many applications. NDI is becoming standards in production workflows.

    This would be extremely useful in educational settings.

    I'd like to also say that I (and I assume many others) would benefit from that NDI signal respecting the alpha channels in a PowerPoint presentation that has no background.

    Powerpoint is Universal, NDI is heading that way cutting out manual IP Clutter that currently is in a PC environment
