ViewCast Demos Latest Niagara Products at IBC

ViewCast will display four new products at IBC2008, each part of the Niagara Pro and portable Niagara GoStream families, and all powered by Osprey video capture technology.

The Niagara GoStream SURF is the most powerful portable streaming media encoding appliance currently available. It’s the newest in the Niagara line of encoders. Users can capture video to send multiple full-resolution streams to PCs and mobile devices in multiple formats at multiple bit-rates—all simultaneously in real time.

The newest Osprey video capture card will be at the show: The Osprey-450e PCI Express video capture card delivers processing on four independent channels, minimizing internal PC space requirements. The Osprey-450e PCIe card also takes advantage of the latest architecture standard, the high-speed PCI Express bus, which enables users to capture four individual channels of analog video and unbalanced stereo audio channels simultaneously and process them independently.

ViewCast will also feature the Niagara 8224 and the Niagara SCX 5.3. The soon-to-be-released Niagara 8224, with eight channels, enables video surveillance of multiple cameras, each streaming in true D1, full resolution. In the new Niagara SCX 5.3, its start-up process has been streamlined to boot all encoding standards concurrently as opposed to the user initiating each one separately.

ViewCast will be in Stand 7.J10.
