Product Description

Ultra Encode

Magewell’s new Ultra Encode family of universal live media encoders offer systems integrators, video professionals, and OEM partners a flexible and affordable encoding solution for applications ranging from live streaming and remote contribution to IP-based production workflows. Ultra Encode supports multiple encoding formats – including H.264 (AVC), H.265 (HEVC), and NDI®|HX – and a wide array of streaming protocols including SRT, RTMP, RTMPS, RTSP, RTP, and HLS. Configurable presets enable easy streaming to popular third-party services or custom targets. Ultra Encode can also be combined with Magewell’s multi-format Pro Convert decoders for robust, end-to-end, live media transport in either NDI|HX or streaming formats.

Ultra Stream

Making live streaming production remarkably simple even for non-professionals, Magewell’s Ultra Stream standalone streaming encoders enable users to record or stream high-quality video with one click using on-device buttons, an intuitive smartphone app or a browser-based web interface. Users can stream to popular services including YouTube Live, Facebook Live or Twitch or to a custom-specified RTMP server, and record video as MP4 files to internal storage, a USB drive, or the associated smartphone. The compact encoders are available with an HDMI or SDI input interface.

Pro Convert

Magewell’s Pro Convert standalone hardware converters let users reliably bring traditional video signals into and out of live, IP-based production infrastructures using NewTek’s popular NDI® technology. Pro Convert NDI encoders – voted by Streaming Media readers as 2020’s best hardware input devices for live production – transform HDMI or SDI input signals into full-bandwidth NDI streams with extremely low latency and are truly plug-and-play, enabling existing source equipment to be easily connected into next-generation IP-based workflows. Pro Convert NDI decoders convert live NDI streams – as well as H.264 or H.265 streams in protocols including SRT, RTMP, RTSP and more – into high-quality SDI or HDMI outputs for display on baseband devices such as monitors and projectors.

Pro Capture
Cost-effectively delivering outstanding video capture quality, performance and reliability, Magewell’s Pro Capture PCIe cards are available in single, dual and quad-channel models with a flexible choice of input interfaces – including HDMI, SDI, DVI, VGA and analog video plus audio – and resolutions up to 4K cinema and Ultra HD. FPGA-based video processing leaves the host system CPU available for third-party software. For third-party developers, the Pro Capture SDK enables partners to create custom solutions leveraging the full feature set of Magewell cards.

USB Capture Plus
Magewell’s external, plug-and-play USB Capture Plus devices are the easiest and most reliable way to bring SDI, HDMI or DVI sources into popular Windows, Mac, Linux or Chrome OS software. Voted by Streaming Media readers as 2017’s best capture hardware, the driver-free devices feature automatic input detection for exceptional simplicity and enable all types of computers including laptops to capture professional HD or 4K video with audio through a standard USB 3.0 interface.

Eco Capture
Designed for use in small and embedded systems where full-sized PCIe slots are unavailable, the Eco Capture family of high-performance video capture hardware offers OEMs and systems integrators an ultra-compact capture solution with low power consumption for space-limited applications. The six Eco Capture models – including HDMI and SDI configurations – each measure just 22x80mm and feature a high-speed PCIe 2.0 bus interface with an M.2 connector, enabling multi-channel HD or single-channel 4K capture with embedded audio.
