VGADVI Broadcaster

Portable audio and video streaming device

Capture, stream, and record in Full HD

VGADVI Broadcaster captures, combines, and streams audio, Full HD video, and SD video from DVI, HDMI™, VGA, DisplayPort, S-Video, and composite sources. Quiet and portable, VGADVI Broadcaster is convenient to transport and won’t distract or add noise while streaming or recording.

Out of the box and ready to stream

Once you’ve configured VGADVI Broadcaster, there’s no need for a separate computer or any other additional equipment; just power it on to start streaming and encoding. With automatic configuration enabled, the device will analyze your source stream and automatically choose the best possible frame size, bitrate, and aspect ratio for the output stream.

Roughly the size of a paperback novel, VGADVI Broadcaster is convenient to carry around. And with no software to install, you can bring VGADVI Broadcaster with you and stream and record from just about anywhere. Power over Ethernet (PoE) simplifies setup even further by eliminating the need for AC power.

Flexible streaming and recording

Record and stream simultaneously

VGADVI Broadcaster can record your stream to internal storage (8 GB) in common and easy-to-use MPEG-TS or MOV formats. Manage file sizes by configuring the device to start a new file at a certain time or file size – all without missing a frame. Should storage space run low, the device can automatically delete the oldest file and replace it with the latest recording.

Expand your storage

Store files on the device itself or automatically transfer recordings to an external USB storage device or local network storage via FTP, RSYNC, or CIFS to save on space and enable 24/7 recording.

Encode with popular codecs

Support for the most widely used video codecs (H.264, MPEG-4, MJPEG) and audio codecs (MP3, AAC, or PCM) eensures maximum compatibility with popular media players like VLC and Adobe Media Player. Tailor video frame rate, encoding bit rates, and key frame interval to suit your specific requirements.

Customize your video program

Display one or both video sources in a custom side-by-side or picture-in-picture layout, with VGADVI Broadcaster automatically scaling any inputs to match your settings. You can even use a corporate color as a background and add overlays such as your company logo, a timestamp, and the presenter’s name.

If an input signal is interrupted for any reason during streaming, VGADVI Broadcaster’s custom no-signal image option can keep your audience engaged.
