Videon, a developer of 4K and HD streaming products, is simplifying video streaming with the introduction of its VersaStreamer product line. VersaStreamer eliminates a key workflow barrier by enabling simultaneous output of three RTMP streams. With this capability, plus support for simultaneous output of MPEG-TS streams, HLS, and recording, the tech brings valuable flexibility to live streaming by facilitating simultaneous processing and distribution of streams to multiple platforms — Facebook, YouTube, a CDN for streaming via a website, or a local network or display. Users can stream locally, point-to-point, and to multiple online video platforms simultaneously while also recording to a backup USB. The VersaStreamer is available in three models, supporting up to 4K.
