Encoders

An encoder is a necessary hardware/software required to turn your video signal into a stream that can be sent to the web & to multisite campuses.

Wirecast

Capture. Produce. Stream. Do everything in one software. You can simply capture your camera or program feeds into this one software, simultaneously switch sources or graphics, and then stream it to the web in h.264. Wirecast gives you the ability to stream multiple bitrates if your computer allows it. Also, you can record an individual quality while streaming live. A video capture device and computer are required to run this software.




Matrox Monarch

Matrox Monarch HD is a small, easy-to-use video streaming and recording appliance designed for professional video producers who need to simultaneously stream a live event and record the master quality version for post-event editing. By separating the task of recording from streaming in a single integrated unit, Matrox Monarch HD ensures that the Content Delivery Networks (CDNs) are focused on delivering quality video to your audience while you control the quality of the archive. Upgrade your work system with the HDX which adds an SDI input/output and frame synchronization as well as other features.

Epiphan

Elevate your encoding to a new level with more inputs, more bitrates, and more control. The Epiphan can capture multiple HD-SDI and HDMI sources to switch, record, scaler, and stream. This encoder supports RTMP and UDP and up to 6 bitrates at one time for MBR streaming. Hard drive space is included or it can record to network locations. Upgrade to the latest model to stream in 4K UHD.


Ensemble

When streaming to another location and switching, time correcting, and frame synchronization is important, this encoder can handle it. You can utilize this solution to stream 2 video sources to one location and keep them in sync. The Ensemble Bright Eye series of encoders/decoders are small, easy to manage, and have front facing button controls and monitoring. An encoder can be outfitted to also include a decoder to minimize on the hardware required for bidirectional streaming.

ViTec

Ensure the delivery of your video quickly and at it’s highest quality. HEVC, H.265, low latency, and Zixi integrated features are all things the ViTec family of encoders and decoders can provide. Their small form factor and rugged design make them perfect for mobile kits. You can utilize this hardware to stream to the web and your multisite locations simultaneously with individual protocols (RTMP or UDP) and qualities. Zixi integration gives you the guarantee that each stream will be delivered flawlessly.
