How to use a video encoder to stream HDMI, DVI, or VGA over the network or Internet
Do you have an HDMI, DVI, or VGA device you wish you could share with others over your internal network (Ethernet) or over the Internet? This tutorial helps you do just that. As long as your viewer has access to the URL for the video stream, they can view it from anywhere using a browser, media player, smart TV, or set-top box.
Epiphan Video has solutions for sharing nearly any type of video. We have everything from portable capture cards you can use with a workstation or laptop to dedicated video encoders (including HDMI encoders and DVI encoders) that do the capture and streaming for you.
For this tutorial, we use Epiphan’s latest integrated all-in-one video production system, Pearl-2. You can also follow the same instructions with Pearl. Many of our other products, including VGADVI Broadcaster, Lecture Recorder X2, or VGADVI Recorder, share very similar steps. If you want to stream a single video source directly to Facebook or YouTube, take a look at Webcaster X1 and Webcaster X2. Regardless of which Epiphan product you use, live video streaming over your network is easy!
