An all-in-one streaming solution: capture, mixer and video encoder

Interact SpA has enriched its online catalogue dedicated to digital media with Rapidcast, a new hardware family designed to manage audio/video streams. The new products added to offer an all-in-one solution, enabling video capture, mixing and editing videos and video encoding in a single product.

The new Rapidcast Video Mix Encoders are perfect for those who need to produce high quality videos without having an in-depth knowledge of broadcasters. Rapidcast encoders offer the possibility of integrating applications of videoconferences or chat, such as Skype, Vidyo, Microsoft Lync, Youtube live, Wowza Media Systems or any other type of software for conferences that support standard video capture equipments.

The versatility of Rapidcast products makes it possible to create streaming platforms from any video source (analog, digital or IP); the Rapidcast encoder captures it and by exploiting the editing power of the software and vMix encoding it enables distributing audio/video streams onto any type of device.

Rapidcast encoders are compatible with the Automation System, that is a system that takes over control from the cameras and the mixers thus obviating the need for a qualified operator and a director in unattended streaming systems. In a scenario such as a conference hall, theatre or church, it analyzes the audio source arriving from the microphones and directs the PTZ cameras to focus on the speaker. Using at least two cameras, Rapid///CAST Automation is able to mix various video sources to obviate showing the movement of the cameras during live video streaming. .
