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. Available in all new units and as a free firmware update for existing customers, version 1.3 adds flexible new recording modes alongside expanded streaming protocol support and various minor refinements.
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.”
