Talon G2 encoder from Osprey Video on show at InfoComm 2017

Osprey Video is to show the new Talon G2 at InfoComm 2017. Designed for organisations that use a single encoder in narrowcasting scenarios, such as corporate communications departments and houses of worship.

Like its Talon G1 predecessor, the Talon G2 includes an SDI input that allows it to connect to broadcast-grade cameras, but with a touch-screen LCD display and a start/stop feature that require little broadcast knowledge to use.

Also like its predecessor, the Talon G2 integrates with the Wowza Streaming Cloud service and YouTube, in addition to new integrations with the Zixi Platform and others.

In addition to SDI-to-HDMI and HDMI-to-SDI converters and miniconverters that are already available, Osprey Video's converter roadmap includes scaling converters for 3G-SDI to HDMI and vice versa, along with 2G-SDI and HDMI 2.0 fibre extenders.
One converter product that will be on display at InfoComm 2017 is the Osprey Video SDI multiviewer, which has four 3G-SDI inputs, two 3G-SDI outputs, and one HDMI output. The multiviewer is capable of up/downscaling, frame rate conversion, colour space conversion, and de-interlacing, while information overlays depict resolution, frame rate, channel identification, and audio metres. Users can operate the unit via DIP switch or Ethernet controls.

Built on the technology behind its capture cards, Osprey Video's external capture devices connect directly to a user's computer via USB 3.0 to capture video from either 3G-SDI or HDMI inputs. Both the 3G-SDI and HDMI versions offer hardware scaling, status display, and a push-button user interface. Compatible with Windows, Mac, and Linux operating systems, the devices are suitable for laptop-streaming applications using the standard UVC and UAC drivers. Both versions of the USB capture device will be on hand at InfoComm 2017.
