BoxCast Boxcaster Pro overview

  • 1Description

Stream high-quality video to nearly any destination with the BoxCaster Pro Streaming Encoder. HDMI and SDI inputs are available, with each input supporting resolutions of UHD 4K up to 60 fps. Loop outputs for both inputs can be used to send signals downstream. Streaming can be done at resolutions up to 1080p, and streams can be encoded using the H.265 codec, which is twice as efficient as the older H.264 codec, for streaming to BoxCast. Audio can be selected from embedded HDMI or SDI inputs or from the integrated XLR/TRS combo jacks which support either microphone or line-level signals. At the front a 4.3" touchscreen LCD acts as a confidence monitor for your streaming content. Even if you can't see the LCD, the LED ring around the device will communicate streaming status.

Streaming is done over a network connection, either via hardwired Ethernet or Wi-Fi. While the BoxCaster Pro itself can only stream to the BoxCast Platform, from there you can send the stream to any number of compatible CDNs through BoxCast, saving on-site bandwidth. When you're not using the BoxCaster Pro, pack it up in the included ruggedized hard case for protection during storage and transport. A 12V power supply is also included.
