Short Description

Stand-alone appliance for streaming and/or recording computer display and camera sources.

VGADVI Broadcaster captures an HD video source such as a computer monitor, RADAR display or ultrasound monitor as well as an SD video source such as a camera feed. VGADVI Broadcaster then streams these inputs as two synchronized time-stamped streams or one picture-in-picture stream. The streams can be viewed remotely in a multitude of ways, including through web browsers, media players, or mobile devices. A recording of the streams can also be made.

VGADVI Broadcaster is easy to setup and use, and works straight out of the box. It does not require the use of a computer or any additional equipment - simply power it on to start recording.


HD + SD Video Audio Capture

VGADVI Broadcaster captures an HD video source (up to 1920x1200) channel from a VGA/DVI/HDMI1 display or camera, in parallel with an analog S-Video/Composite (PAL, NTSC) SD video source channel and a stereo/mono audio source.


VGADVI Broadcaster encodes the input channels into a choice of standard formats:


VGADVI Broadcaster streams the input channels as a single stream or two independent streams up to 30 FPS. Standard browsers and media players view the stream(s) via a URL over choice of: HTTP, RTP over RTSP, UDP, HTTP  Administrators can custom brand the output stream layout, picture with picture arrangement, time stamping, copyright, and other branding.

Record to Publish and Replay

VGADVI Broadcaster records the input channel streams to its 8GB internal storage, network storage, internal FTP server, external FTP site and/or local USB storage key. Media files can be viewed by standard media players, browsers and processed with standard multi media editing tools.
