m Software Upgrade (Digital)
*** THIS SOFTWARE IS COMPATIBLE WITH OSPREY 530 & 560 ***
Flexible multi-format streaming
SimulStream® is a premium driver upgrade that delivers digitized audio and video content from Osprey video capture cards to multiple applications at the same time. Use it to:
- Simultaneously send the same live content to many different encoders -- Windows Media®, Adobe® Flash®, MPEG-4, etc.
- Deliver the same live content to different playback devices, scaled and optimized for each device.
- Stream live in one or more popular formats while saving to disk in an uncompressed, editable format.
An optimized solution
Reaching the broadest audience with an optimum viewing experience is critically important to any streaming video application. SimulStream lets you individually create, tailor and optimize video for several applications and audiences - all at the same time - live!
Competing solutions may allow you to deliver multiple streams in different encoded formats, but they force you to use the same frame size, frame rate, bitmap overlays (logos) and other critical parameters for each stream. This greatly limits flexibility when you need to deliver live video to many different playback devices and to users with widely different levels of available bandwidth.
SimulStream lets you deliver full-frame video to high-speed Internet users; smaller, lower-rate video to DSL and dial-up subscribers, and optimized video for several different Mobile Device standards, all while saving the same content to a storage device for post-processing and other Video on Demand (VOD) applications.
- Optimized live streams for a diverse Internet and mobile audience
- Independent pre-processing of video for each stream
- Enables multi-format, multi-bit rate, and multi-resolution streaming - all at the same time
- Maximum efficiency without sacrificing quality
- Complete utilization of latest multi-core processors
- Maximum solution density for streaming production
- Reduced total hardware costs

However, you can perform multi-streaming from the analog ports while capturing video from the IEEE-1394 port at the same time with SimulStream and the Osprey 300.
