Introduction

This article describes how to share Aximmetry's output on Skype, Zoom, and other VoIP software.

The easiest way to do it is by using an NDI signal produced by Aximmetry.

For this, you will need two things:

  • We suppose that you already know how to set up an NDI output in Aximmetry. If not, please read this document first.

  • NDI Tools

NDI Tools

NDI tools is a software package that will let you use NDI in- and outputs.

Download NDI tools software from the official NDI website and install the software.

NDI connection Setup

Start NDI tools.

On the NDI Tools startup page, start the NDI Webcam Input app by clicking on it.

You can tell that the NDI Webcam Input app is running if you see its taskbar icon.

Note: You can also start the NDI Webcam Input app directly, for example from the Start Menu.

Right-click on the NDI Webcam Input taskbar icon.

You will see all devices on the network which give an NDI output at the top of the list.

Highlight the device which gives the output you would like to use.

In our example, the Aximmetry NDI Output is produced by Aximmetry running on the laptop.

Stream to Skype with NDI

We suggest setting the video Mode to 1080p30, and turning ON Sync when setting up the NDI output in Aximmetry, But of course, you can set this up according to your needs.

In Audio & Video, select NewTek NDI Video as Camera.

Note: In the preview, the NDI Input appears mirrored, however, others will see the feed as normal, so disregard the mirroring in settings.
