Magewell IP-based Production, Remote Collaboration, and Live Streaming

Magewell is heading to the IBC 2023 exhibition with a wide range of new and updated solutions that make IP-based production, remote collaboration, and live streaming easier and more cost-effective for everyone from independent producers to large media enterprises. Exhibiting in stand 7.A44, the company will demonstrate innovations across its IP conversion, streaming, and video capture portfolios that seamlessly bridge signals, software, streams, and screens.

While Magewell plans to unveil a major new offering closer to the show, highlighted demonstrations also feature recent announcements including:

Centralised Management: Control Hub

Magewell’s second-generation device and stream management software, Control Hub, makes it easy for integrators, administrators, and IT staff to centrally configure and control multiple Magewell streaming and IP video conversion solutions. The successor to the earlier Magewell Cloud platform, Control Hub features an enhanced device management interface and expanded stream conversion capabilities.

Flexibly deployable on-premises or in the cloud, Control Hub lets users manage multiple encoders and decoders across disparate locations through an intuitive, browser-based interface. Users can remotely configure device parameters, monitor device status, trigger operational functions, and perform batch firmware upgrades. Control Hub also lets users convert streams between multiple protocols with an exceptionally flexible stream routing architecture.

IP Audio Conversion: Pro Convert Audio DX

Magewell’s Pro Convert Audio DX multi-format IP audio encoder, decoder and capture device will make its IBC debut. The company’s first solution with integrated support for Dante audio networking, the new hardware lets users easily convert audio between Dante, NDI, and SRT while seamlessly bridging analogue audio, software, and IP networks. It can also encode analogue audio into Dante, NDI or SRT streams as an ‘on-ramp’ to IP networks, plus decode IP audio streams in any of these formats and protocols for analogue output.

Ultra-Compact Video Capture: New Eco Capture Models

Magewell will showcase two just-announced models in its Eco Capture family of ultra-compact, power-efficient M.2 video capture cards. The new cards capture 4K video up to 4096×2160 (including 3840×2160 Ultra HD) at frame rates up to 60fps, with higher frame rates available at lower resolutions. The Eco Capture HDMI 4K Plus M.2 features an HDMI 2.0 interface, while the Eco Capture 12G SDI 4K Plus M.2 flexibly supports single-link 12G-SDI or quad-link 3G-SDI connectivity. Ideal for use in small, portable or embedded systems where full-sized PCIe slots are not available, the cards feature an M.2 connector and measure only 22x80mm.

Live Streaming: Ultra Encode AIO

Magewell will also demonstrate new enhancements in its Ultra Encode AIO advanced live media encoder. Ideal for applications from live streaming to IP-based production, Magewell’s Ultra Encode AIO builds on the flexibility of standard Ultra Encode models with new features including HDMI and SDI input connectivity in a single unit; 4K (30fps) encoding and streaming from the HDMI input; simultaneous multi-protocol streaming; file recording and more. It can encode H.264, H.265 (HEVC), NDI|HX 2 and NDI|HX 3, and supports protocols including RTMP, SRT, HLS, TVU’s ISSP technology and more.
