Magewell ships AV-over-IP and live streaming decoders with SDI outputs

Magewell is shipping new Pro Convert low-latency video-over-IP converters for NDI to SDI and H.26x to SDI.

The converters transform live, IP media streams into SDI outputs for connection to monitors, projectors and legacy production equipment. 

Pro Convert decoders are suited to remote production; multi-site video distribution; video walls; digital signage; image magnification (IMAG); surveillance monitoring; or bridging legacy and next-generation media infrastructures.

The Pro Convert H.26x to SDI decodes live H.264 (AVC) or H.265 (HEVC) compressed video streams up to 1080p60 for output via a 3G-SDI interface. The low-latency device supports a wide range of input streaming protocols for maximum source compatibility, including SRT (Secure Reliable Transport) -- developed and open-sourced by Haivision -- as well as RTSP, RTMP, UDP, RTP, and HLS. The Pro Convert for NDI to SDI offers all of the same functionality plus support for Newtek's popular NDI technology for production-grade media transport, including both full-bandwidth NDI and the high-efficiency, lower-bitrate NDI|HX mode. 

Both decoders feature DHCP-based network configuration and FPGA-based video processing. They measure 100.9 by 60.2mm with a height of 23.3mm, and can be powered via external adapter or Power over Ethernet (PoE). Users can specify source streams and control the decoder's advanced settings through a browser-based interface; connected keyboard or mouse; or using on-device buttons that overlay an intuitive menu on the output. 

With the release of the new models, Magewell now has three Pro Convert decoders available with SDI output. The third, the Pro Convert for NDI to AIO, offers NDI, H.264, and H.265 decoding with simultaneous HDMI and 3G-SDI outputs. The decoders can be paired with Magewell's Ultra Stream live streaming encoders; Pro Convert NDI encoders; or third-party encoding products.
