The modular interface provider has announced that its latest yellobrik is an SDI/HDMI to H.264 encoder for live streaming and recording. The PEC 1864 H.264 encoder allows users to simultaneously stream content while recording it, which Lynx said makes it an ideal product for delivering, streaming and archiving content efficiently and affordably.
The module houses two independent encoders: a stream encoder and a record encoder. Users can stream content with simultaneous recording, stream-only, or record-only. The independent encoders support different quality settings for the streamer and the recorder.
For example, a user may wish to simultaneously stream content directly to the web in lower quality due to limited bandwidth, and record at a higher master quality for
editing or archiving.
The yellobrik accepts either an SDI or HDMI input supporting up to 3G (1080p@60Hz) and compresses it using the H.264 encoding standard. It supports a variety of streaming outputs including RTMP for streaming to CDNs.
Using this streaming format, a user enters their CDN log-in credentials into the yellobrik’s web-browser based GUI and streams the content live on their CDN channel, for example, Wowza, YouTube, Facebook.
