Magewell Integrates Ultra Encode AIO Live Media Encoder With Wowza Video Platform

Magewell has partnered with Wowza to tightly integrate two of the companies’ highly-acclaimed solutions. The new integration combines Magewell’s Ultra Encode AIO live media encoders with the Wowza Video platform to form seamless and easy-to-deploy streaming workflows from encoding all the way through to delivery over Wowza’s global content delivery network (CDN).

Supporting multiple encoding formats and a wide array of delivery protocols, Ultra Encode AIO offers a robust yet affordable encoding solution for applications ranging from live streaming and remote contribution to IP-based production. The versatile, PoE-powered device encodes video up to 1080p at 60fps or 4K at 30fps, and can encode one live input source or mix its HDMI and SDI inputs into a combined output.

Wowza Video is a comprehensive, integrated video platform designed for business-critical applications. Combining rock-solid reliability with global scalability and the simplicity of a single video solution for live streaming and VOD, it provides the core capabilities of broadcast media servers without the cost and engineering requirements of typical broadcast deployments.

The new integration adds Wowza Video to Ultra Encode AIO’s array of user-friendly output presets, enabling customers to seamlessly bring content from the encoder into the Wowza ecosystem without time-consuming manual configuration. Wowza Video subscribers can specify their Wowza access token within Ultra Encode AIO for automatic authentication, then stream to the platform using the RTMP or SRT protocol. Users can get up and running quickly while still having the option of customizing settings to their unique needs and environment. As always with Ultra Encode AIO, streaming can be triggered manually or scheduled, enabling automated, hands-off deployments.

Wowza Video integration is a standard feature on new Ultra Encode AIO units and is available to existing Ultra Encode AIO customers as part of a free firmware upgrade.
