Using the Aja HELO Encoder

Aja HELO Encoder

ScaleEngine is a powerful platform for streaming video over the internet. Whether you're hosting a live event, creating a video on demand platform, or simply want to share your content with a wider audience, we can help you reach your goals.

One of the key components of any streaming setup is the encoder. The encoder is responsible for taking your video source (e.g. a camera or video switcher) and turning it into a stream of data that can be transmitted over the internet.

One popular option for encoders is the AJA HELO. AJA is a leading manufacturer of professional video equipment, and the HELO is a versatile, easy-to-use encoder that can stream video to a variety of platforms, including ScaleEngine.

Here's how to use ScaleEngine to stream video with an AJA HELO encoder:

  • Set up your AJA HELO encoder. The first step is to connect your HELO encoder to your video source (e.g. a camera or video switcher) and your internet connection. You'll also need to configure the encoder's settings, such as the video resolution, bitrate, and frame rate.
  • Create a stream in your ScaleEngine control panel. To stream video to us, you'll need to create a stream by giving it a name and optionally a password. This involves configuring your stream settings (e.g. recording, DVR, security), and optionally a password.
  • Configure the AJA HELO encoder to stream to ScaleEngine. Once you've created a streaming destination on ScaleEngine, you'll need to configure your HELO encoder to stream to that destination. This involves entering the RTMP URL and stream key into the encoder's settings.
  • Start streaming. With everything set up, you're ready to start streaming video from your AJA HELO encoder to ScaleEngine. Simply press the "Start" button on the encoder, and your video will begin streaming to your selected destination.

Using ScaleEngine to stream video with an AJA HELO encoder is a simple and efficient way to share your content with a wide audience. With its powerful features and easy-to-use interface, the HELO encoder is a great choice for anyone looking to stream high-quality video in real-time.
