Magewell to Highlight Video Interface and Conversion Solutions at IBC2018

At IBC2018 Magewell will showcase its latest innovations that go “beyond capture” into other critical signal processing functionality.

Foremost in this expansion is the European debut of Magewell’s new Ultra Stream HDMI standalone streaming encoder. Making live streaming remarkably simple even for non-professional users, Ultra Stream HDMI lets them record or stream high-quality video with one click using on-device buttons or an intuitive smartphone app.

Users can stream to popular services including YouTube, Facebook Live or Twitch or to a custom-specified server, and can record video as files to a directly-connected USB drive or the associated smartphone. The device encodes video up to 1080p60 from an HDMI input and also supports 4K sources, down-converting them automatically to HD.

Also on show is the series of Flex I/O PCIe input-output cards that combine Magewell’s highly-regarded video capture advantages with versatile playout capabilities. Available with SDI or HDMI interfaces, the first two Flex I/O models each feature four input channels and two outputs, all of which can be used simultaneously with independent resolution, frame rate and processing settings for maximum flexibility.

The Eco Capture (M.2) cards are ideal for use in small and embedded systems where full-sized PCIe slots are unavailable. The Eco Capture family of video capture hardware offers OEMs and systems integrators an ultra-compact capture solution with low power consumption. Featuring an M.2 connector and measuring just 22x80mm, four Eco Capture models offer single-channel 4K (HDMI), dual-channel HD (HDMI or SDI) or quad-channel HD-SDI capture capability.

New models and enhancements in Magewell’s flagship Pro Capture family of PCIe capture cards will make their IBC debuts, including a multi-channel CVBS model for ingesting legacy analog signals, an additional dual-channel 4K Ultra HD configuration, and recently-added HDR support in select configurations.

Finally, see the stand for USB Capture Plus, external devices continue to be the easiest and most reliable way to bring SDI, HDMI or DVI sources into popular software, enabling all types of computers including laptops to capture HD or 4K signals through a standard USB 3.0 interface.
