China-based capture products’ manufacturer, Magewell, will be unveiling, in Europe, the Ultra Stream HDMI standalone streaming encoder.
Users can stream to services including YouTube, Facebook Live or Twitch or to a custom-specified server, and can record video as files to a directly-connected USB drive or the associated smartphone. The device encodes video up to 1080p60 from an HDMI input and also supports 4K sources, down-converting them automatically to HD.
Magewell will also provide a sneak preview of new solutions that bring the company’s hardware and software benefits to IP-based production infrastructures, bridging traditional video signals with live, network-based media transport. More details will be shared closer to the show.
In addition to these IBC premieres, Magewell’s exhibit will include Flex I/O – Flex I/O PCIe input-output cards that combine Magewell’s video capture advantages with playout capabilities.
Other products include the Eco Capture (M.2), Pro Capture and USB Capture Plus.
“While we continue to expand and enhance our popular capture card families, our newest offerings are designed to bring our hallmarks of exceptional performance, quality, reliability and simplicity to other critical functions in acquisition, production and distribution workflows,” said Amy Zhou, Sales Director at Magewell. “We look forward to introducing these new solutions to international attendees at IBC 2018.”
