How does NDD streaming work?
NDD streaming requires no special equipment or software, other than a high-speed internet connection. Viewer’s device must be equipped with an audio card or other audio system.
For institutions: When you purchase a 5-year institutional stream or a 14-day In-Class license, NDD provides a link based on your IP address or IP address range. After your purchase, simply add these data to your Account Profile in the space provided. NDD streams will easily integrate with class management software, such as Blackboard.

For distance learning: NDD works with your proxy server to provide streams for off-campus viewers. For complete setup instructions, go to our FAQ Page.
For individuals: A high-speed internet connection and audio card is all that’s required.
