Magewell Ships New AV-over-IP and Live Streaming Decoders with SDI Outputs
Wed 09, 12 2020
Latest models convert NDI®, H.264, or H.265 streams into high-quality SDI signals for output to baseband display and distribution equipment
Magewell has begun shipping the newest decoder models in its Pro Convert family of low-latency video-over-IP converters. Available immediately, the Pro Convert for NDI® to SDI and Pro Convert H.26x to SDI transform live, IP media streams into high-quality SDI outputs for connection to monitors, projectors and legacy production equipment.
Magewell’s Pro Convert products seamlessly bridge traditional video signals with IP-based production, distribution, and streaming workflows. Offering the high reliability, assured performance and compact size of dedicated hardware, Pro Convert decoders are ideal for applications including remote production; multi-site video distribution; video walls; digital signage; image magnification (IMAG); surveillance monitoring; or bridging legacy and next-generation media infrastructures.
The Pro Convert H.26x to SDI decodes live H.264 (AVC) or H.265 (HEVC) compressed video streams up to 1080p60 for output via a 3G-SDI interface. The low-latency device supports a wide range of input streaming protocols for maximum source compatibility, including SRT (Secure Reliable Transport) — developed and open-sourced by Haivision — as well as RTSP, RTMP, UDP, RTP, and HLS. The Pro Convert for NDI to SDI offers all of the same functionality plus support for Newtek’s popular NDI® technology for production-grade media transport, including both full-bandwidth NDI and the high-efficiency, lower-bitrate NDI®|HX mode.
The plug-and-play decoders feature DHCP-based network configuration and high-quality, FPGA-based video processing. The compact devices measure just 3.97 by 2.4 inches (100.9 by 60.2mm) with a height of 0.92 inches (23.3mm), and can be powered via external adapter or Power over Ethernet (PoE). Users can specify source streams and control the decoder’s advanced settings through a browser-based interface; connected keyboard or mouse; or using on-device buttons that overlay an intuitive menu on the output.
With the release of the new models, Magewell now has three Pro Convert decoders available with SDI output. The third, the Pro Convert for NDI® to AIO, offers NDI, H.264, and H.265 decoding with simultaneous HDMI and 3G-SDI outputs. The decoders can be paired with Magewell’s intuitive Ultra Stream live streaming encoders; Pro Convert NDI encoders; or third-party encoding products.
“The use of video-over IP and streaming media for remote production, live media transport, and mass communications has accelerated significantly as the world adapts to new ways of working, learning, and sharing information,” said James Liu, VP of Engineering at Magewell. “Our Pro Convert family lets users easily and reliably leverage popular IP media protocols over LANs, WANs, and the public internet, and we’re pleased to be shipping our newest decoder models into customers’ hands.”
