The ViewCast Niagara 4100 is a portable system that allows you to quickly and easily stream your HD content to broadband and mobile networks. It also allows live adaptive streaming to Apple iPhone and iPad mobile devices. With the ability to ingest high-definition video, the Niagara 4100 is ideal for live sports, live newsgathering operations, webcasting, or any streaming application.
The Niagara 4100 can ingest standard- or high-definition video sources through its SDI input, and accommodates a variety of audio input formats, including embedded SDI, AES/EBU, and balanced or unbalanced stereo. With a portable, streamlined chassis, an easy-to-use web interface, and intuitive front panel controls, setup and operation is quick and easy. The Niagara 4100 even comes standard with front panel A, B, C buttons that can be pre-configured independently to activate different streaming profiles to meet the needs of any streaming application.
The Niagara 4100 is a self-contained system. There's no need for a keyboard, monitor, or mouse. You can control all key functions from the front-panel controls, or the unit can be accessed remotely anywhere on the network through its built-in web interface. All rear-panel connections are recessed for maximum protection, and there's even a built-in handle for easy portability.
The Niagara 4100 supports multiple concurrent streams in a variety of formats, at multiple bit rates, from a single video source -- all simultaneously. Included is the Niagara SCX management software so you can control all features through an easy-to-use web interface. By eliminating the need for an external stream segmenter, encoding workflows are simplified and overall system costs reduced.
