Osprey G1 overview

  • 1Description

With its flexible routing solutions and multiple streaming capabilities, the Osprey Talon G1 Hardware Encoder is a professional solution for streaming and archiving live video content. The G1 can accept video from SDI, HDMI, or composite video sources and compress the incoming stream into an H.264 file. H.264 compression gives the flexibility for video to be streamed over the web or easily archived without the storage impact of uncompressed video.

Since the encoding hardware is built into the G1, no extra processing power on the part of a computer is required. 2 simultaneous video signals can be streamed simultaneously to two different destinations, while a single video signal can be streamed to up to 3 discrete destinations, each with its own settings. For more information on the operating modes, see the features section below.

While the G1 chassis itself is devoid of controls, the IP GUI is comprehensive and simple to use. Simply connect the G1 to your network via the RJ-45 Ethernet connection. This design allows for placing the G1 out of sight or reach using the included mounting hardware.

Features

Configurations Modes
MBR Mode: This is the default mode. One video source can be streamed to up to 3 destinations using multiple resolution and bit-rate settings. For seamless RTMP and MBR streaming, frame alignment is supported. In this mode, RTMP, RTP, UDP, and .TS file streams support up to 1080p60 resolution.

LC Mode: Ideal for lectures, LC mode allows for the capture of 2 simultaneous video sources to be streamed to 2 destinations. The SDI input functions as the primary input in this mode, and HDMI or composite can be selected as the secondary input. In this mode, deinterlacing will be disabled, so progressive video sources (i.e. not interlaced) are preferred.
Closed-Caption Support
Closed Captioning (EIA-608 & EIA-708) Type-1 ATSC Picture User Data is automatically embedded in the H.264 SEI per SCTE 128-1 standard (available in RTMP & UDP Streams).
Audio-Input Options
Embedded HDMI/SDI, additional unbalanced stereo audio input is available from front panel via a 3.5mm jack.

    Osprey G1 reviews

    Talon G1 Hardware Encoder is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally! An affordable Encoding Solution I can depend on. My school has been using Osprey Video Cards to stream events for close to 10 years. We were excited to see this encoder come to market...and it's working flawlessly for us! If you want quality streaming products always go with Osprey.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Stable and Easy to Use We use it at our school for live streaming to YouTube while simultaneous archiving to a network share. It is very easy to use and never let us down. Looking forward to the G2 version as it will eliminate the ipad that we currently use for starting and stopping the streams.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid . Dependable . Set it . Forget it. This is the perfect product for sending RTMP to deliver to the masses as well as saving to File. Great for our changing workflows with SDI or HDMI and easy to set up, start and let stream at high quality at a great price point for the quality and reliability.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Fraught with design & performance issues This item did not perform to expectation and do have flaws in design/build/function. One of these items took repeated attempts to upgrade to the latest firmware. Neither unit was able to simultaneously use their 3 encode outputs to render streams (with no published specs or limits from Osprey available - and they were not large streams either, very basic), and neither unit could reliably publish a video file to its USB port. Osprey support was 'not familiar with the product' and had to constantly consult engineers. Issues were not fully resolved. This is not a very good product from Osprey. I have used their various cards for years and this does not meet expectation.
    Date published: 2017-01-30
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Buggy, unstable, low quality. Builds 1.2 and 1.3 both had stability problems after several hours of streaming. Interface frequently stops responding, encodes don't report correctly, and unit has to be power cycled to recover. Interface is dated and loading encodes is slow, too few parameters. No Mac compatibility, required for easily pulling the hardware address. For the price point the encoder efficiency needs some work. I would put this in the $500 category. PoE would be great. Needs a lot of improvements.
