—Magewell Unveils New Universal Media Encoder for Live Streaming, Production, AV-over-IP and More.—

January 28, 2021 — Nanjing, China: Magewell is kicking off 2021 with the launch of its 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, 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.

“While our Ultra Stream encoders continue to be extremely popular for users with fairly straightforward live streaming needs, integrators and high-end production professionals may require advanced capabilities such as additional formats or protocols and higher bitrates,” said Nick Ma, CEO and CTO at Magewell. “Ultra Encode delivers these enhanced features in an exceptionally versatile platform that is ideal not only for live streaming, but also for other professional applications such as AV-over-IP and local or remote production workflows.”

Ultra Encode features H.264 and H.265 (HEVC) video compression for live streaming delivery, letting users choose their preferred balance between broader viewing device compatibility and higher quality/bitrate efficiency. The new encoder also supports a flexible range of streaming protocols including RTMP, RTMPS, RTSP, RTP, HLS, and SRT (Secure Reliable Transport, developed and open-sourced by Haivision). Configurable presets enable easy streaming to YouTube Live, Facebook Live, Twitch, or custom targets, with select protocols allowing simultaneous streaming to multiple destinations.
