Hardware-based Encoders for Broadcasting Real-time Streaming Content

In today's digital landscape, the demand for real-time streaming content has skyrocketed, prompting broadcasters and video creators to prioritize the efficient delivery of high-quality video and audio streams. Hardware-based encoders play a crucial role in this process with their offerings of superior encoding capabilities and seamless transmission. Needless to say, workflows don't have to be interrupted in order to better a stream. Using the Dolby.io Streaming API protocols like SRT, NDI, and WHIP can be ingested directly from the encoders like Teradek, Osprey, and Videon and distributed in WebRTC.
