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

Stream
A USB connection and robust web browser-based UI allow you to set up 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 RTP/RTSP, RTMP, RTMPE for Facebook live as well as Unicast. HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) support adds compatibility with Apple's popular iOS devices and more.

HELO's web-based GUI even provides a video preview window so that you can ensure you are getting just what you expect. An AV Mute setting allows you to mute live video and audio for your stream and either load your own graphic with event details or utilizes a built-in holding graphic before your event goes live

Record
HELO offers a dedicated Record button right on the front of HELO’s small and mobile interface for immediate recording. It also provides simultaneous recording while streaming and redundant recording of one file to two media destinations simultaneously. This enables you to hand a client a copy of the event right after the recording ends while maintaining a master in the house.

Mass Media
HELO’s H.264 based encoding not only ensures beautiful, efficiently sized files, it means your recording medium choices are wide open. Utilize USB thumb sticks, drives, and RAIDs, common SD, SDHC, or SDXC media or network shares across a switch. Pick to suit your project.

Calendar Integration
HELO opens up a world of new streaming workflows for AV, live events, houses of worship, webcasting, corporate communications, production, and post. HELO offers a scheduler that triggers pre-planned start and stops of recording and streaming media simplifying projects that require definitive schedules. The schedule may be programmed locally through HELO’s web UI, by importing ICS files or by linking to external calendar providers such as Google Calendar.
