Nagasoft Live+ interconnection system
Based on NDDIP (Nagasoft Director Device Interconnection Protocol), Nagasoft creates a new Live+ interconnection system, throughout the entire equipment supply chain and service chain in industry, in order to achieve interconnection and interworking among a variety of core live production devices and front-end capture equipments (such as: mobile phone, encoder, UAV etc.), and forming the live broadcasting solution relying on network system.
Each Live production device added into the live+ interconnection system, owns the only director code and corresponding QR code. No matter anywhere it locates, front-end equipments can be easily linked into live production devices by entering the director code or scanning the director QR code, in order to optimize the entire directing process.
Live+ interconnection system owns an open system framework and Nagasoft provides open SDK for third party vendors joining the Live+ system easily. Currently, iOS, Android, Windows SDK are available.
