Niagara SCX Pro, together with Osprey SimulStream, enables you to create multiple streams in different formats - LIVE!
This gives you the flexibility to create exactly the right content for your various audiences. This means you can encode different streams for intranet users, high-speed Internet users, dial-up users, and viewers on mobile devices â€” all at the same time!
With MPEG-4 and Adobe Flash Live streaming capabilities, you can deliver your rich media content to the latest Internet-enabled video devices, as well as a wide array of mobile devices.
You can size and scale each individual stream, and customize each stream with bitmap overlays (e.g., logos), closed-captioning, etc. No other portable media encoder on the market today offers this level of flexibility and convenience.
Niagara SCX Pro

Niagara SCX Pro Web Interface Encoder Configuration Tool
For custom configuration of the Niagara GoStream SURF system settings, ViewCast created the Niagara SCX Pro Web Interface tool, which is included with all Niagara GoStream appliances. This tool does not require you to install special software on any other PC. You only need a Web browser on any PC running any operating system, and you can control and configure your Niagara GoStream SURF streaming media encoder remotely.
