Z3 Technology, LLC, a leader in the high performance video encoder market, today announces the release of Z3Stream-SDI, a compact H.264 video encoder. This low-cost system is capable of encoding video in resolutions up to 1080p60 in streaming formats including RTMP, RTSP and others. These features, along with its compatibility with the Wowza Streaming Engine and other online streaming platforms, including YouTube and Facebook Live, make it an ideal solution for live event streaming.
“Just as the original Z3Stream provides users a video encoder equipped with essential features for streaming high quality video, but at a fraction of the cost of other comparable products, the new Z3Stream-SDI encoder provides added flexibility by accepting SDI video,” Aaron Caldwell, CEO, Z3 Technology said. “Leveraging on our experience with our broadcast-proven ZEUS® video encoders, we’ve created a lower cost solution for video streaming.”
Measuring 6.2 (w) x 4.8 (d) x 1.3 (h) inches, Z3Stream-SDI offers SDI, HDMI®, composite and GigE interfaces. The system is easily set-up and controlled by a PC through an HTTP-based user interface.
Z3Stream-SDI’s complete package is priced at $995 USD and includes one Z3Stream-SDI encoder, one 5V power supply, one BNC cable, one HDMI cable and one composite cable. This package is readily available for purchase through Amazon.com.
