Magewell Ultra Encode AIO: Revolutionizing Broadcast and Live Streaming
The Magewell Ultra Encode AIO is a powerful and flexible solution for high-quality broadcast and live streaming of sports, educational lectures, and live events. With its support for multiple encoding formats and streaming protocols, simultaneous multi-protocol streaming, and scheduled streaming, it is the perfect solution for IP-based production and AV-over-IP workflows. This article will dive deep into the features and capabilities of the Magewell Ultra Encode AIO, highlighting its benefits and versatility for various applications.
Multiple Encoding Formats & Streaming Protocols
The Magewell Ultra Encode AIO stands out in the broadcast and streaming industry due to its support for a wide range of video encoding formats and delivery protocols. Users can choose from multiple encoding formats, including:
- 265 (HEVC)
- NDI|HX 2
- NDI|HX 3
These formats ensure compatibility with different platforms and streaming requirements. Furthermore, the Ultra Encode AIO supports various delivery protocols, such as RTMP, RTMPS, SRT, RTSP, RTP, HLS, and TVU’s ISSP technology. Configurable presets make streaming to popular platforms like YouTube, Facebook Live, and Twitch quick and easy.
One of the key features of the Magewell Ultra Encode AIO is its ability to stream to up to six different target destinations simultaneously using multiple protocols. Video can be encoded at bitrates up to 32Mbps, and two concurrent encoding profiles with distinct combinations of resolution, frame rate, and bitrate can be specified.
Streaming output options for the Ultra Encode AIO include:
- SRT (Caller or Listener mode)
- Transport Stream (TS) over UDP
- TS over RTP
- TVU ISSP
The six simultaneous streaming sessions can include multiple streaming protocols or multiple instances of the same protocol, providing flexibility and versatility for users. Note that there are some limitations, such as a maximum of one HLS stream, one RTSP stream, and two NDI|HX2 streams.
The Magewell Ultra Encode AIO also offers the ability to schedule streaming sessions to start and stop automatically at specified times. Users can define up to eight individual or recurring events for each streaming session. Scheduling parameters include event description and details, start and end time, and criteria for repeating the streaming event.
AV-over-IP and IP-based Production Workflows
The Magewell Ultra Encode AIO is not only an excellent solution for live streaming but also a powerful tool for AV-over-IP (Audio Video over IP) and IP-based production workflows. NDI|HX3, one of the supported encoding formats, is specifically geared towards these applications. Although NDI|HX3 requires exclusivity and cannot be streamed simultaneously with other protocols, it is an ideal choice for production workflows and AV-over-IP scenarios.
