The Talon G1 Hardware Video/Audio Encoder is a professional solution for streaming and archiving live video content.

It is a small form-factor H.264 video encoder designed to be easy to use, portable, and easily stream both your standard definition and high definition content to broadband and mobile networks.

The Talon G1 Encoder can accept video from SDI, HDMI, or composite video sources and compress the incoming stream with H.264 format. H.264 compression gives the flexibility for video to be streamed over the web or easily archived without the storage impact of uncompressed video.

You can stream video via its Gigabit Ethernet port using a variety of protocols such as RTMP, RTP and UDP.

The Talon G1 Encoder features two operating modes. MBR mode allows to stream one source to three destinations, LC mode  allows two sources to be streamed to two destinations.
