HELO - Overview

Stream, Records & Deliver H.264 at the Touch of a Button!

The AJA HELO is a powerful H.264 streaming and recording stand-alone appliance. HELO brings both SDI and HDMI I/O into a single appliance with the ability to simultaneously stream out to your Content Delivery Network (CDN) as well as encode and record beautiful H.264 files to either SD, SDHC or SDXC cards, USB storage or NFS or CIFS mounted network based storage simultaneously.

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 3G-SDI and HDMI source inputs in a single device with the ability to encode up to 1080p 60 in beautiful and efficient H.264.

It's a Fast World. Capture It.
1080p 60 is the de facto standard today for delivery of sports, live events, crystal clear video conferencing, webinars and games capture. Simply connect any video device to HELO via 3G-SDI or HDMI and record H.264 files and stream as needed. HELO is the perfect compliment to any professional workflow, easily connecting to a range of HD capable devices. HELO offers both 3G-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 CDN and record to SD, SDHC or SDXC cards, USB storage or NFS or CIFS mounted network based shares simultaneously.

Encode
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 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 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 RTP/RTSP, RTMP, RTMPE for Facebook live as well as Unicast. HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) support adds compatiblity 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.

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. It also provides simultaneous recording while streaming and redundant recording of one file to two media destinations simultaneously.
