Magewell Pro Convert H26x to HDMI 4K
Magewell’s Pro Convert H.26x to HDMI 4K multi-protocol streaming media decoder transforms a standard H.264 (AVC) or H.265 (HEVC) compressed video stream into an HDMI output for connection to baseband monitors, projectors and switchers. Supporting a range of streaming protocols—including SRT, RTSP, RTMP, UDP, RTP and HTTP streaming—for maximum source compatibility, the low-latency decoder is designed for applications such as multi-site video distribution between corporate, educational and church campuses; remote production; surveillance monitoring; digital signage and more. The Magewell Pro Convert H.26x to HDMI 4K decodes streams up to 4096×2160 at 60 frames for output over its HDMI 2.0 interface. Built-in, FPGA-based video processing can be used to up-convert HD or 2K source streams to 4K for viewing on Ultra-HD displays, while automatic detection of target display characteristics optimizes output parameters.
Example of use: How to get video from one side of the building to the other ?
There are various ways to do this however the must cost effective way is to use the Pro Convert H26x to HDMI 4K; Once your main PC is set up to stream the video via the Magewell Bridge to NDI, Newtek NDI Tools or other compatible software then simply plug the device into an ethernet port and on the other side to a HDMI TV or projector and that’s it! The device can get both the video data and power from the ethernet port (with POE) or you could power it up with a USB cable from a PC/laptop or a phone charger. In addition to recognizing and displaying both H.264 and H.265 streams, the Pro Convert H26x to HDMI 4K can also decode video in various formats such as: RTSP, HTTP, RTMP, UDP, SRT, RTP. So really, this is the ideal device to display live H.264 or H.265 streams anywhere with an ethernet connection.
Magewell Pro Convert decoders are designed for applications including multisite video distribution, monitoring, image magnification (IMAG), digital signage, remote production, or bridging legacy and next-generation media infrastructures. The Pro Convert H.26x to HDMI 4K decodes streams up to 4096×2160 at 60 frames per second for output over its HDMI 2.0 interface. Built-in, SoC-based video processing enables the device to automatically up-convert HD or 2K source streams to 4K for viewing on Ultra HD displays. The plug-and-play decoder features DHCP-based network configuration and can detect the video and audio characteristics of the target display device via EDID metadata, automatically optimizing output parameters or providing the user with a range of compatible choices.
Users can specify source stream URLs and control the decoder’s advanced settings through a browser-based interface; wired or wireless keyboard or mouse; or using two on-device buttons that overlay an intuitive menu on the HDMI output. Eight channels of AAC or MP3 audio are supported in the input stream with user control of audio gain, sample rate, channel selection and on-screen VU metering. Additional integration features include image flip for inverted projector installations; safe area controls; and aspect ratio conversion. The Pro Convert decoder can be paired with Magewell’s intuitive Ultra Stream encoders or third-party hardware or software encoders.
About NDI® – (Network Device Interface) software is in the hands of millions of customers worldwide and allows multiple video systems to identify and communicate with one another over IP. NDI can encode, transmit and receive many streams of high quality, low latency, frame-accurate video and audio in real time. This benefits any network-connected video device, including cameras, converters, video mixers, graphics systems, capture cards, and many other production devices.
