EdgeCaster EZ’s H.264/H.265/HEVC encoding can achieve less than three-second worldwide latency, with outputs supporting both HLS and DASH using CMAF and six bit-rates up to 30 Mbps. EdgeCaster EZ eliminates time-intensive, computational encode/decode/reencode processes inherent in pure cloud workflows, handling these tasks at the point-of-production for increased efficiency.
Depending on configuration, EdgeCaster EZ can send a single stream, or up to three simultaneous streams to major streaming platforms and local destinations, in the cloud or through the public Internet, making it the most versatile solution for both local and broadcast video distribution. EdgeCaster EZ can provide simultaneous RTMP/RTMPS streaming to online platforms such as Facebook, YouTube, Twitch, Amazon Web Services, and others; support for RTSP, Unicast, Multicast, SRT, and HLS/DASH.
EdgeCaster EZ devices can be remotely upgraded to multiple outputs or multiple outputs plus MBR. Even more importantly, EdgeCaster EZ can be upgraded to the Videon Compute Platform (VCP) at any time by simply unlocking the device and signing up for a VCP subscription. VCP benefits include access to Videon’s evolution on-the-fly, with continuous 6-8 week release cycles, additional features such as time synchronization to facilitate productions with multiple camera sources, SCTE-35 ad marker insertion for monetization, early access beta testing, VCare+ with hardware upgrade options, and much more.
