ViewCast unveils Niagara GoStream SURF
At NAB2008, ViewCast introduced Niagara GoStream SURF, a portable streaming media encoding appliance.
GoStream SURF is the newest in the Niagara encoder product line, all of which are powered by ViewCast Osprey video capture technology.
With GoStream SURF, users can capture video to send multiple full-resolution streams to PCs and mobile devices in multiple formats at multiple bit rates simultaneously. This gives users the flexibility to stream content from a controlled studio environment or an off-site location to capture live events or up-to-the-minute news.
With GoStream SURF, users can shoot on-location or in the studio and have access to live audiences, delivering video content in the most desired viewing formats, including MPEG-4, Adobe Flash Live, Microsoft Windows Media, RealVideo and uncompressed AVI.
