12G SDI + HDMI 2.0 Video Inputs

Whether you’re broadcasting a single-camera feed or a more advanced production from a video switcher, the BoxCaster Pro is flexible and can adapt to nearly every unique video setting you find yourself in.

The Pro can connect to your camera or switcher with SD-SDI, HD-SDI, 3G-SDI, 6G-SDI, or 12G-SDI, as well as both HDMI 1.0 and 2.0. With a built-in scaler and adaptive motion de-interlacing, the BoxCaster Pro automatically converts your input (up to 4k60p) to a format suitable for streaming. Additionally, the loop HDMI and SDI outputs allow you to monitor or locally record the input signals.

Professional Audio Connectivity

Top-tier video streaming hardware should make it easy to integrate HD audio into the mix. The BoxCaster Pro does precisely that, and allows you to input high-quality, pro audio from either XLR or ¼-inch cabling. You can use the intuitive touchscreen to monitor audio levels, manage phantom power, and change audio gain. Built with audio flexibility in mind, you can directly connect professional mixers, line level sources, broadcast headsets, microphones, and more. BoxCaster Pro’s 3.5 mm stereo headphone jack also allows you to keep tabs on how things sound while broadcasting, too.

HEVC Compression Icon B @2x

HEVC Compression

The higher the video quality, the larger the video file. Though AVC compression is the standard when it comes to live streaming HD video, HEVC is an even more efficient way of doing so.

The BoxCaster Pro comes equipped with High Efficiency Video Coding, also known as H.265, and lets you cut your necessary bandwidth in half — which allows you to encode your video in the highest quality. This all happens behind the scenes, but it’s one of the core reasons why BoxCast makes streaming live HD video so easy.

Event Automation Icon 2x

Easy Event Automation

The BoxCaster Pro and BoxCast’s online Dashboard let you schedule your events in real time or as far into the future as you like. When it’s time for your event, your Pro will automatically begin broadcasting to as many destinations as you choose. This ensures a reliable start time and freedom to focus on other aspects of your production and workflows.

We make it this easy by pairing the BoxCaster Pro video encoder with our subscription-based live streaming platform.
