MC287353: Microsoft Teams: Video Streams Out Support for AJA and Blackmagic Design Hardware Devices

The ability for Teams clients to stream content from a client to the local network via Network Device Interface (NDI) is being expanded to enable streaming content to select attached hardware devices. Users with the ability to turn on NDI will also be able to push content to attached hardware devices from AJA or Blackmagic Designs. This will enable users to push content from Teams out via attached SDI or HDMI devices. This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 82812 & 83486.

Isolated video streams can be sent out of Teams meetings via AJA and Blackmagic Design hardware devices.

  • GCC-High and DoD: begin in late June (previously late March) and expect the rollout to be complete by mid-July (previously mid-April).

How this will affect your organization

Existing users of NDI will soon have a new ability to stream out to SDI or HDMI if they have the appropriate hardware. The meeting policy for local streaming is the same for both NDI and the attached hardware output.

What you need to do to prepare

No changes will happen to any users aside from those who already have the ability to stream via NDI; they will see an update in their settings to show if they have attached compatible hardware.
