Las Vegas, NV, NAB Conference, Stand SL2416 (April 8, 2019)—AJA Video Systems today announced v4.0 firmware for its HELO H.264 streaming, recording and encoding device. HELO v4.0 adds new features that allow users to customize their streaming service and offer improved monitoring and control for live stream workflows.
New AV Mute allows HELO users to personalize the viewing experience with their own service branding by supplying an image to be streamed while muting audio and video streams. The user-supplied still image can be streamed until the video feed is ready to go live or if any technical difficulties arise. New Event Logging allows users to monitor the activity of the encoder, making it easier to identify and troubleshoot service connection issues.
The release also adds Korean and Japanese support to the UI, making HELO more accessible to users in some parts of the world.
HELO v4.0 feature highlights include:
HELO v4.0 will be available May as a free download from AJA’s website. HELO is available now for $1295 US MSRP. For more information, visit: www.aja.com/products/helo.
