Magewell Ultra Encode – Flexible and Affordable Universal Encoder

Ultra Encode family of universal live media encoders offers systems integrators, streaming professionals, and OEM partners a flexible and affordable encoding solution for applications including live streaming, AV over IP, remote contribution, IP production workflows and much more.

Key Features

  • Live H.264/H.265 streaming in protocols including SRT, RTMP, RTMPS, HLS and more.
  • NDI|HX encoding for IP production workflows.
  • Bandwidth-efficient contribution with H.265 and SRT.
  • Control via intuitive Web interface or API.
  • Pair with Pro Convert decoders for low-latency, end-to-end media transport.

Live Streaming

Ultra Encode supports live streaming in protocols including RTMP, RTMPS, HLS and more at bitrates up to 16Mbps, with configurable presets for easy streaming to Facebook, Twitch and YouTube. Some protocols can be streamed to up to six destinations simultaneously, with separate encoding parameters for each stream.

Production, Contribution and Monitoring

In addition to mainstream streaming protocols, Ultra Encode supports NewTek’s NDI|HX technology for IP production workflows and the Secure Reliable Transport (SRT) protocol (developed and open-sourced by Haivision) for robust delivery of H.264/H.265 streams over unpredictable networks such as the Internet. The encoder can be camera-mounted for easy remote contribution, while bandwidth-efficient NDI|HX streams can be sent over wireless networks to multiple receivers, simplifying on-site production and monitoring workflows.

Multi-Site Distribution and AV-over-IP

Ultra Encode can be combined with our Pro Convert decoders to form flexible AV over IP infrastructures leveraging NDI|HX technology. The devices can be configured and controlled through an intuitive Web GUI or HTTP-based APIs, providing systems integrators with exceptional deployment and integration flexibility.
