Versatile card-and-software bundles combine our Flux advanced PCIe capture and pre-processing cards with the easy-to-use Stream LE software, letting you add real-time, multi-format capture, encoding, transcoding and streaming to an existing Windows workstation.

Superior hardware and software for encoding excellence

Today's ever-expanding multi-screen content distribution opportunities and file-based media production workflows enhance video communications, streamline operations and let you reach wider audiences with your content than ever before. Creating and transforming live and file-based media at superior quality for the latest viewing platforms, devices and applications requires a flexible, tightly-integrated solution designed specifically to meet the challenges of efficient multi-format encoding.

Flux Workflow

Digital Rapids' Flux encoding bundles add real-time, multi-format video and audio encoding, transcoding and streaming capabilities to your existing PC workstation, letting you transform your media at higher quality, faster and more easily than ever before. Featuring the same powerful Flux hardware technology used in our StreamZStreamZHD and StreamZ Live encoders, Flux card-and-software bundles combine the quality and performance advantages of hardware-based preprocessing with the format flexibility of software codecs, all controlled by an intuitive, streamlined user interface.

Multiple formats, one easy workflow

No single encoding format is perfect for all viewing devices, audiences or applications. The tightly integrated Stream LE software software lets you encode from live input sources or transcode from existing media files to over two dozen standard or optional codec and container formats, all from a single interface for easy operation. Standard and optional output formats supported include VC-1 (Microsoft® Silverlight®, Windows Media, IIS Smooth Streaming), AVC (also known as H.264 or MPEG-4 Part 10), MPEG-2, QuickTime®, Adobe® Flash® (H.264 or On2 VP6), MXF, GXF, JPEG2000, XDCAM HD, Avid DNxHD®, AVC-Intra (Panasonic P2), DVCPro, AVI and many more, with a flexible architecture for easy future format expansion.

Video and audio can be encoded to files or live streams in multiple formats, resolutions and bit rates simultaneously in real time, giving you exceptional productivity while targeting multiple distribution channels or workflows with media optimized for each application. You can perform as many simultaneous real-time encodes as your system's CPU horsepower will allow. Whatever your application, Flux-powered encoding solutions can output to the formats and specifications you need with the highest video and audio quality possible.
