Zoom Rooms can be used in conjunction with Network Device Interface (NDI) for the creation of customized video experiences. Production teams can use NDI-enabled applications to modify video sent via NDI to the network during a meeting or webcast. A producer could, for example, customize the name tags, the backgrounds, or the gallery views, depending on his or her production tools. You can edit the video in real time and broadcast it via social media, secondary meetings, or other live streaming platforms to other audiences.
