"By making NDI®|HX Camera available to all iPhone users, we are greatly improving the flexibility and quality of video meetings, enhancing the ability of anyone to work more efficiently while working remotely during these trying times. Our app makes that simpler by using the high-quality camera many people already have in their pocket"
