Rugged, portable, powerful.

The Niagara 4100 is designed with a combination of simplicity, portability and power to quickly and easily stream your HD content to broadband and mobile networks including live adaptive streaming to Apple® iPhones® and iPads®. With the ability to ingest highdefinition video, the Niagara 4100 is ideal for live sports, live newsgathering operation, webcasting or any streaming application where you need rock-solid performance on the go.


This rugged, portable streaming appliance can ingest standard- or high-definition video sources through its SDI input, and accommodates a variety of audio input formats, including embedded SDI, AES/EBU, and balanced or unbalanced stereo.


With a portable, streamlined chassis, an easy-to-use web interface, and intuitive front panel controls, setup and operation is quick and easy. The Niagara 4100 even comes standard with front panel A,B,C buttons that can be pre-configured independently to activate different streaming profiles to meet the needs of any streaming application.


A self-contained system.

Niagara 4100 is a self-contained system built with the durability to withstand the most demanding production environments. You can control all key functions from the front-panel controls, or the unit can be accessed remotely anywhere on the network through its built-in web interface. All rear-panel connections are recessed for maximum protection, and there’s even a built-in handle for easy portability.

With ViewCast’s SimulStream technology, the Niagara 4100 supports multiple concurrent streams in a variety of formats, at multiple bit rates, from a single video source - all simultaneously.


It also comes with Niagara SCX® management software so you can control all its features through an easy-to-use web interface. Niagara SCX 6.2 will markedly improve the live streaming delivery experience for both broadcasters and iPhone users. By eliminating the need for an external stream segmenter, encoding workflows are simplified and overall system costs reduced.
