It offers a wide range of features and functionality to make Internet streaming to computers and mobile devices push-button easy for even the most novice user.

The GoStream SURF comes standard with our exclusive architecture, featuring simple “A-B-C” button selection of your favorite encoding profiles. With a portable, streamlined chassis, intuitive front panel controls, and EASE control menus, streaming set-up is quick and easy. Select any pre-defined encoding profile with the push of a single button… then press “STREAM” to start broadcasting over the Internet immediately.

Now anyone can stream, from anywhere.

It’s true. ViewCast has made streaming easy for anyone. And from virtually anywhere. Start with a video camera and a microphone…then, connect your GoStream SURF to the Internet, push a front-panel button to select your profile, press the red “Stream” button, and you’re streaming live from wherever the action is!

Need to do live video Webcasts? Already have a videoconference system? Then you’re all set…just connect your Niagara GoStream SURF to your conference system with a simple cable and get added value from your investment.

Expand your streaming options.

Also included on the GoStream SURF are the most versatile ViewCast software applications - Niagara SCX® Pro and Simulstream® - both pre-configured and ready to use. These tools empower you to set up, control and monitor multiple Niagara streaming systems throughout an enterprise or over the Internet, using a single, easy-to-use interface.

Capture, encode, stream and archive video in a wide variety of popular encoding and streaming formats.

Niagara SCX Pro, together with Simulstream, enables you to create multiple streams in different formats in real time, giving you the flexibility to create exactly the right content for your various audiences. This means you can encode different streams for Intranet users, high-speed Internet users, dial-up users, and viewers on mobile devices - all at the same time!

With MPEG-4 and Adobe Flash Live streaming capabilities you can deliver your rich media content to the latest Internet-enabled video devices, as well as a wide array of mobile devices. You can size and scale each individual stream, and customize each stream with bitmap overlays (e.g., logos), closed-captioning, etc.

No other portable media encoder on the market today offers this level of flexibility and convenience. Capture your live video and audio on the GO and discover why ViewCast is a global leader in the industry.
