The Osprey Talon G1 Encoder Bundle can be used for end-to-end media streaming. It includes the Talon G1 Hardware Encoder and Wowza Streaming Engine Media Server 4.5 Software.

With its flexible routing solutions and multiple streaming capabilities, the 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.

The Wowza Streaming Engine Media Server 4.5 Software enables reliable video and audio streaming to any device. It provides unlimited live transcoding for ABR (adaptive bitrate) delivery across any network to any device. The software leverages UHD capabilities and Wowza-integrated solutions to enable VR and 360° content streams. In addition, it offers flash-free streaming with support for HTML5, WebRTC, MPEG-DASH, Apple HLS and more.

The software offers Facebook Live, SHOUTcast, and Icecast stream target integration and Apple HLS delivery to generic targets. It also supports integration of Panasonic AW-series PTZ cameras and AJ-series cameras. The software enables pass-through and transcoded stream SCTE-35 and KLV marker preservation. In addition, it also supports Simple Network Management protocol (SNMP).
