Product Description

Details

Portable and Packed to go
HELO’s small and robust form factor is essential for your busy schedule. Live events, webcasts, production and post locations vary and you need a device that can take the heat. HELO is designed to travel well, fit wherever needed and continuously deliver; all with full size connectivity.

HELO offers both HD-SDI and HDMI source inputs in a single device with the ability to encode up to 1080p 60 in beautiful and efficient H.264.

Stream out to your Content Delivery Network (CDN) and record to SD cards, USB storage or network based shares simultaneously.

Encode
Your goal is efficiency with beautiful results.

HELO encodes to H.264/MPEG-4 ensuring bandwidth efficiencies with widely compatible files. From tablets to Smartphones, Desktops to Smart TVs, no translation necessary.

2-Channel Stereo Audio can be encoded at up to 24-bit 48kHz at data rates ranging from 32kbps to 256kps in MPEG-4-LC, allowing you to make the most appropriate choice for your project's needs.

Stream
Streaming can be complex. HELO makes it simple.

A USB connection and robust web-browser based UI allows you to setup and configure your CDN connection before you even arrive at your event. Once there, simply press the Stream button and deliver your project across HELO’s Ethernet connection, which allows support for RTSP and RTMP. 

Record
Live means Now. Live means Pressure.

HELO offers a dedicated Record button right on the front of HELO’s small and mobile interface for immediate recording. Simply plug in your FAT 32  formatted USB drive, SD card or connected network storage and record immediately.
