Encoder Ring

Magewell’s Ultra Encode AIO advanced streaming and recording encoder.


5 September 2022

Ultra Encode AIO live media encoders take the capabilities of the original Ultra Encode models to a whole new level for advanced use cases. It builds on the functionality of the Ultra Encode family with expanded features including HDMI and SDI input connectivity in a single unit; 4K encoding and streaming from the HDMI input; simultaneous multi-protocol streaming; higher streaming bitrates; file recording; and more. 


The single-channel Ultra Encode AIO can encode one live input source — either HDMI or SDI — or mix video from the HDMI and SDI inputs (picture-in-picture or side-by-side) into a combined output. Up to eight user-configurable overlays — including text, images, and a clock — can be applied to the output profile.


Ultra Encode AIO supports multiple video encoding formats — including H.264, H.265 (HEVC), NDI|HX 2, and NDI|HX 3 — and an array of delivery protocols including RTMP, RTMPS, SRT, RTSP, RTP, HLS, and TVU’s ISSP technology. Up to eight channels of audio can be encoded in AAC format.


Video can be encoded at resolutions up to 4096×2160 at 30 frames per second from HDMI sources, or up to 1080p HD at 60 fps from the device’s 3G-SDI input. Ultra Encode AIO can stream to up to six different target destinations simultaneously at bitrates up to 32Mbps per stream.


Ultra Encode AIO supports streaming and recording simultaneously. Inputs can be recorded as files to an SD card or an external, USB-connected storage device or networked storage (NFS, CIFS or SMB).


For IP production workflows and AV-over-IP signal distribution architectures, Ultra Encode AIO supports NDI|HX 3, the latest version of the high-efficiency, low-bandwidth option in the popular NDI IP media transport technology platform. Ultra Encode AIO also supports the earlier NDI|HX 2 for broad compatibility.


  • Mixes video from the HDMI and SDI inputs (picture-in-picture or side-by-side) into a combined output
  • Allow simultaneous 6 sessions over multiple streaming protocols at 32Mbps per session
  • High-efficiency, low-bandwidth NDI|HX 3 supported
  • Supports streaming and recording schedule
  • Rack-mountable form factor

This device is ideal for high-quality live streaming of content including sports, education, and live events as well as IP-based production and AV-over-IP.
