Sonora encodes an HDMI source using H.264 compression. Don’t let Sonora’s market leading price fool you, this is a professional video encoder with all of the features you would expect in a much higher priced unit, it has all the power to simultaneously stream to many different destinations including:
- Point-to-point on an internal network
- Point-to-point over the WAN
- Multicast on a local network
- to a decoder located on a different network
- to a variety of online video platforms such as YouTube, Facebook Live, USTREAM, WOWZA etc.
PROFESSIONAL RELIABILITY AT A CONSUMER PRICE
Make no mistake about it, Sonora is professional grade. Designed to be the most reliable encoder you have ever used, Sonora is at home in professional video production studios.
STREAMING MADE SIMPLE
When you use Sonora with select online video platforms you can schedule the start and end times of your streams. That means you don’t have to do anything, Sonora starts and stops streams automatically.
ENCODE AND DECODE
Sonora is an encoder AND a decoder. One Sonora (setup as an encoder) can stream directly to another Sonora (setup as a decoder) either on a local network or over the public internet.
