RTMP streaming protocols are being added to the NXT line of H.264 MPEG encoders. With the addition of RTMP to the NXT 450 and 445, users can now stream directly to CDNs such as YouTube, Wowza, UStream, Facebook and more.
The CDN authentication credentials are entered into the NXT web-based UI, a connection is established and live web streaming commences, said Ensemble.
These NXT encoders combine SD/HD SDI inputs with high-performance H.264 encoding. Format-agile Clean Switches provide mix/cut transitions between sources into the encoder and from there directly to the web.
Ensemble said hardware-based format conversion makes it easy to deliver the most suitable resolution format and frame rate for the streaming application, regardless of the source material.
