Niagara® Pro II
Niagara Pro II
Streaming Media System
The professional’s choice for
streaming media.
The Niagara Pro II has powerful processors and large memory capacity, taking professional streaming to the next
level. With two independent channels, the Niagara Pro II lets you capture SDI video and encode multiple full-resolution (D1) streams including live adaptive streaming to Apple® iPhone® and iPad® mobile digital devices.
Pre-configured software.
The Niagara Pro II includes two of our most versatile
software applications – Niagara SCX® and
SimulStream® – both pre-configured and ready to use.
ViewCast’s SimulStream software enables you to create additional streams from the same sources in different formats – encoded independently and simultaneously. This powerful software enables you to stream in
multiple resolutions, formats and bit rates – all at the
same time.

Niagara SCX management software lets you control
all of its key features through an easy-to-use web
interface. Niagara SCX will markedly improve the live
streaming delivery workflow. By eliminating the need
for an external stream segmenter, encoding workflows
are simplified and overall system costs reduced.
Schedule and manage live video.
VMp Live, an event scheduling software module, is now
available as an add-on component to the Niagara Pro
II. VMp Live is an easy to use, cost-effective solution to
schedule and manage your live video events.
