Encoder Ring

Magewell’s Ultra Encode AIO advanced streaming and recording encoder.

By

5 September 2022

Ultra Encode AIO live media encoders take the capabilities of the original Ultra Encode models to a whole new level for advanced use cases. It builds on the functionality of the Ultra Encode family with expanded features including HDMI and SDI input connectivity in a single unit; 4K encoding and streaming from the HDMI input; simultaneous multi-protocol streaming; higher streaming bitrates; file recording; and more. 

MULTI-INPUT VIDEO PROCESSING

The single-channel Ultra Encode AIO can encode one live input source — either HDMI or SDI — or mix video from the HDMI and SDI inputs (picture-in-picture or side-by-side) into a combined output. Up to eight user-configurable overlays — including text, images, and a clock — can be applied to the output profile.

FORMATS & PROTOCOLS

Ultra Encode AIO supports multiple video encoding formats — including H.264, H.265 (HEVC), NDI|HX 2, and NDI|HX 3 — and an array of delivery protocols including RTMP, RTMPS, SRT, RTSP, RTP, HLS, and TVU’s ISSP technology. Up to eight channels of audio can be encoded in AAC format.

ENCODING & STREAMING CAPABILITIES

Video can be encoded at resolutions up to 4096×2160 at 30 frames per second from HDMI sources, or up to 1080p HD at 60 fps from the device’s 3G-SDI input. Ultra Encode AIO can stream to up to six different target destinations simultaneously at bitrates up to 32Mbps per stream.

RECORDING & STREAMING

Ultra Encode AIO supports streaming and recording simultaneously. Inputs can be recorded as files to an SD card or an external, USB-connected storage device or networked storage (NFS, CIFS or SMB).

NDI|HX 3 SUPPORT

For IP production workflows and AV-over-IP signal distribution architectures, Ultra Encode AIO supports NDI|HX 3, the latest version of the high-efficiency, low-bandwidth option in the popular NDI IP media transport technology platform. Ultra Encode AIO also supports the earlier NDI|HX 2 for broad compatibility.

PRODUCT INFO
