Magewell’s Ultra Stream HDMI standalone encoder makes live streaming production and recording simple even for non-professional users, enabling them to record or stream high-quality video with one click using on-device buttons or an intuitive, accompanying smartphone app.
Avoiding the laptop and browser-based interface typically needed for setting up streaming encoders, initial configuration is performed over network or Bluetooth connectivity with the free iOS or Android app. Once configured, recording and live streaming can be started and stopped directly with physical buttons on the Ultra Stream HDMI unit, via virtual buttons in the app, or remotely through a browser-based user interface.
Users can stream to popular services such as Facebook Live, YouTube or Twitch or to a custom-specified RTMP server with a single tap. Streams can be output to a third-party service and a custom server simultaneously, while real-time video preview in the smartphone app allows easy monitoring.
The Ultra Stream HDMI captures, encodes and streams video up to 1080p60 via an HDMI input interface. In addition to outputting live streams, the Ultra Stream HDMI can record video as MP4 files to a directly-connected USB drive, internal storage or the associated smartphone. The encoder also supports 4K HDMI inputs, down-converting them automatically to HD for recording and streaming.
