StreamEez-Pro, the simple to use streaming video system
The StreamEez-Pro system includes two parts: the StreamEez high definition video encoder and a StreamEez-Pro application for Windows which allows the control and management of a live streamed event.
The StreamEez video encoder is a rugged, high quality real-time HD encoder which converts HDMI video into H.264 with AAC audio, the most widely used format for streaming video over the Internet. The StreamEez video encoder accepts HDMI video at up to 1080p60 and has a down scaler which can convert video to a lower resolution format such as 720p "on the fly". The StreamEez encoder also includes a logo inserter which can take a transparent PNG file and overlay it on top of the live video. There is an HDMI output port which can be used to connect to a video monitor.
The Streameez-Pro application runs on Windows 7 or Windows 8 and has a simple to setup access for Internet video streaming to Amazon Web Services through Wowza, plus supports the Meridix sports streaming service and Ustream, Twitch and YouTube. The StreamEez-Pro application allows a user to easily choose streaming profiles for low, medium and high bandwidth services. For advanced users, StreamEez-pro allows the creation of custom profiles with settings for bit rate and scaling factors. In addition to the built-in streaming services, StreamEez-Pro can support other streaming services using RTP or RTMP protocols.
Use Amazon Web Services and Wowza to stream your events locally or around the world
To stream a live event using StreamEez-Pro, an organization would need to have the StreamEez-Pro video encoder, a high definition HDMI camera, a laptop computer and an Internet connection. In addition, an Amazon Web Services account or an account with Meridix, Ustream or Twitch can be used. Examples of live events which StreamEez-Pro can be used for are church events, school board meetings or other town hall events, and sporting events through the Meridix Sports Network.
With the StreamEez-Pro application, connecting to a streaming video service has four steps: create an account with your streaming service provider, enter your password, choose a streaming profile based on the speed of your Internet connection, and then start streaming. It's that easy!
