Talon G2 Encoder Offers One-Touch HD Streaming

Osprey Video is bringing to market an extension of its Talon hardware encoder line with the launch of the Talon G2. Like others in the range, the G2 creates live RTMP streams for unmanaged networks. It costs $1,890

Targeting customers looking for end-to-end video-streaming tools for professional workflows, Osprey Video's Talon G2 ingests video from multiple formats, encodes it to H.264, and delivers it over IP. One of the product’s most important characteristics is its front-facing LCD touch screen, which offers one-touch streaming control. Once the streaming profiles are set up on the back end, which can be done remotely if needed, any user can start or stop encoding operations at the touch of a button. The screen displays continuous feedback on the status of all encoders, so users always know which ones are active versus idle.

Another aspect of the G2 is API-level integrations with both Facebook Live and the Wowza Streaming Cloud streaming service.

“These integrations, along with one-touch streaming control, bring simplicity and time savings to a process that could otherwise be very cumbersome,” said Scott Whitcomb, business development manager. “For example, streaming to Facebook is a daily practice for many operations, yet Facebook users must configure a new session every time they want to deliver a stream. Osprey Video worked with Facebook on an exclusive interface that makes it possible to configure the Talon G2 for Facebook streaming only once instead of daily. Once configured, users simply press a button. Furthermore, built-in security features make it so that authorized users can start streaming to anyone's Facebook page (such as a company's or an executive's) without needing login credentials, saving even more time while alleviating security concerns over password-sharing.”
