Magewell Makes 'Streaming Media
Producer' 25 List
M

agewell has been named to
the second annual Streaming
Media Producer 25 list of the leading
technology companies driving advances
in live streaming media production.
The Streaming Media Producer 25
recognizes innovative companies that
enable, enhance and streamline the
workflows of live video producers
- particularly those who need the
mobility, agility, and versatility to
deliver great work, regardless of the
venue or production conditions.
"The Streaming Media Producer 25
highlights companies who develop
and manufacture gear that not only
demonstrates promise or prowess
in one or more stages of the live
production and streaming process, but
also fits well as part of a kit that makes
the overall workflow successful,"
said Steve Nathans-Kelly, Editor of
Streaming Media Producer.
The 2020 edition marks the second
time that Magewell has been named
to the Streaming Media Producer 25.

Since its selection to the inaugural list
last year, the company has continued
to introduce new products and
expanded features that help
a diverse range of content
producers create, deliver
and display high-quality
streams easily, efficiently
and cost-effectively.
Magewell has also made the
transition to IP-based production
workflows affordable and practical
with new models in its Pro Convert
family of NDI encoders and decoders,
which Nathans-Kelly praises as "an
easy means of entry into IP video
for producers who are not prepared
to invest in NDI-ready cameras
and the like - and one that should
help accelerate the adoption of NDI
throughout the live production world."
"Streaming has become an intrinsic
part of people's lives for everything
from entertainment and information
gathering to serving as a crucial
communications medium as part of

Magewell's
Pro Convert for
NDI to HDMI 4K

their jobs," said Nick Ma, CEO and CTO
at Magewell. "From professional video
producers to occasional users, more
people are creating streaming content
than ever before. Our selection to the
Streaming Media Producer 25 again is
testament to our success in offering
innovative, practical solutions that
empower all types of customers to
achieve their streaming goals."
Within the past year, extensions to
Magewell's Ultra Stream family of

live
streaming
encoders
have
expanded
its
input
signal
support and control
interfaces
while
adding new recording
modes
and
network
connectivity options.
The free Capture Express
software for the company's renowned
capture devices - USB Capture, Pro
Capture and Eco Capture - now
supports streaming with the SRT
protocol, while the new Pro Convert
for NDI to HDMI 4K is the industry's
first hardware decoder to support
both NDI for production-grade media
transport and SRT for internetdelivered H.264 and H.265 streams.
Two additional new Pro Convert
decoder models similarly support SRT
as well as RTMP, RTSP, UDP, RTP and
HTTP streaming.
