Plano, Texas-based ViewCast has introduced Niagara GoStream, a single-channel, portable streaming media encoder appliance designed for ease of use by streaming experts or novices. This compact unit can quickly go from its DualDock rack shelf in an indoor environment to outdoor, on-location events for live webcasting. The GoStream product aims to break down the technology barriers of most streaming media products and simplify the user experience.
With a robust feature set combined with ease of use, ViewCast expects the GoStream product to grow the adoption of streaming media encoders by customers of content delivery networks and other emerging networks, especially in the broadcast, education, worship, and enterprise markets.
The GoStream encoder focuses on the creation and presentation of video and audio on the Internet with a single-button operation.
It features EZStream event buttons that allow users to load pre-defined encoding profiles for a specific event and simply press the record button to begin a streaming session.
“Our goal in designing the GoStream was to enable a broader audience to take advantage of streaming technologies. With GoStream, ViewCast customers are able to establish video communications from anywhere with the simple press of a button,” notes Dave Stoner, ViewCast president and COO.
