The newest model in Magewell’s family of standalone streaming encoders, the Ultra Stream SDI, will make its European AV exhibition debut at ISE 2020.
According to Magewell, Ultra Stream encoders enable either non-technical or experienced users to easily live stream. Users can record or stream high-quality video with one click, using on-device buttons, an intuitive smartphone app or a straightforward web interface. Streaming live to services such as YouTube Live, Facebook Live and Twitch or to a custom-specified RTMP server, users can simultaneously record video as files to a USB drive or to the associated smartphone.
Designed for customers with SDI input sources such as cameras and video routers, the Ultra Stream SDI model captures, encodes and streams HD or 2K video at resolutions up to 2048×1080 over 3G-SDI connectivity. Support for embedded SDI audio is augmented by an analogue microphone input and a headphone output for monitoring, while an SDI loop-through connection enables source signals to be simultaneously sent to a monitor or other equipment. The compact encoder comes standard with both WiFi and Gigabit Ethernet network connectivity and also supports an optional mobile broadband modem.
Nick Ma, CEO and CTO at Magewell, commented: “Video streaming has become an essential tool in almost every industry and market, and users who aren’t video professionals want to minimise their dependency on IT and AV specialists for their day-to-day streaming needs. Magewell’s Ultra Stream encoder family is ideal for enabling them to stream self-sufficiently.”
