The new Ultra Encode family of universal live media encoders. Supporting multiple encoding formats – including H.264, H.265, and NDI®|HX – and a wide array of delivery protocols (RTMP, RTMPS, RTSP, RTP, HLS, and SRT ), the new hardware offers 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 and AV-over-IP.
Configurable presets enable easy streaming to YouTube™ Live, Facebook™ Live, Twitch™, or custom targets, with select protocols allowing simultaneous streaming to multiple destinations using independent encoding parameters for each stream.
For IP production workflows and AV-over-IP signal distribution architectures, Ultra Encode supports second-generation NDI|HX, the lower-bitrate mode in NewTek's popular NDI®IP media transport technology. The bandwidth-friendliness of NDI|HX enables it to be transmitted wirelessly over Ultra Encode's built-in Wi-Fi support, maximizing flexibility in on-site production and monitoring workflows. Ultra Encode units can 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.
