Osprey Video To Debut New Talon G2 Encoder At 2017 NAB Show


Osprey Video has announced that they will debut their all new Talon G2 encoder at the 2017 NAB Show in Las Vegas this coming April 22-27. The Talon G2 is an upgrade on their award winning Talon G1 three-channel streaming contribution encoder which continues to evolve and mature with the addition of new models, new features, and new and tighter integrations with some of the industry’s leading streaming platforms.

The new Talon G2 is designed for organizations that use a single encoder in narrowcasting scenarios, such as corporate communications departments and houses of worship, the Talon G2 offers professional-level features in a device that’s easy enough for volunteers or other novice users to run. For example, like its Talon G1 predecessor, the Talon G2 includes an SDI input that allows it to connect to broadcast-grade cameras, but with a touch-screen LCD display and a simple start/stop feature that require little to no broadcast knowledge to use. Also like its predecessor, the Talon G2 integrates with the Wowza Streaming Cloud™ service and YouTube, in addition to new integrations with the Zixi Platform and others.
