Magewell has released a new upgrade for its award-winning Ultra Stream family of live streaming encoder hardware that further enhances the devices’ exceptional ease of use and versatility.

Magewell’s Ultra Stream encoders make live streaming remarkably simple even for non-professional users, enabling them to record or stream high-quality video with one click using on-device buttons, a browser-based web interface or an intuitive smartphone app. Designed for users who want to stream but may have minimal technical knowledge, the compact devices are ideal for addressing the increased need for live streaming created by today’s stay-at-home and social distancing restrictions.

“Many individuals and organizations are turning to live streaming for the first time to help them continue communicating with their followers, members, constituents or fans,” said Nick Ma, CEO and CTO at Magewell. “Ultra Stream’s outstanding ease of use and affordability make it easy for new streamers to get started, while the encoders’ quality, reliability and feature-richness make it similarly appealing for streaming professionals.”

Using the grid as the screen reveal eliminates the need for visible flush-mount trim and allows integrators to take advantage of the compact and lightweight cassette design of Solo and Solo Pro. The new Suspended Ceiling Mount System utilizes a standard threaded rod to mount the brackets to the structure above. The cassette remains completely hidden from view and the screen descends into the room through a thin opening.

Satellite Modular Laser System – New, revolutionary projector advancement from Digital Projection

In home_page, Product News, Projection, Projection Product News, Web Articlesby Media

Digital Projection, the Emmy-award winning manufacturer of high-performance laser projection and fine-pitch LED video wall solutions is pleased to officially launch its game-changing Satellite Modular Laser System (Satellite MLS). The keystone feature of this new, revolutionary system is the separation of the pure laser light engine, with the associated power and thermal management, to a remote location. This enables a compact and virtually silent projection ‘Head’ that primarily contains optics, video processing, and cooling related to the image modulators. Providing flexible integration options unlike anything on the market today, Satellite MLS promises to be an incredible leap forward for the AV industry.

Modularity
Given the modular components that comprise the system, integrators can easily design a custom one-to-many, or many-to-one configuration between the MLS light sources and the Satellite projection Heads:

In a one-to-many configuration, a single 10,000 lumen MLS light module illuminates multiple projection Heads, equally splitting and providing matched brightness to each Head through the life of the illumination system. Intelligent control mechanisms ensure lumen matching of up to four projection Heads, while dramatically reducing system downtime for scheduled maintenance.
