Broadcasting and Streaming

In addition to broadcasting, the UltraNEXUS-HD and UltraNEXUS-HD Blade have a built-in workflow for video-on-demand streaming. Each video server natively encodes high quality digital media files for both television broadcasting and video-on-demand (VOD) streaming. Once the files are recorded, the UltraNEXUS-HD/UltraNEXUS-HD Blade will even automatically transfer VOD files to VieBit, LEIGHTRONIX’s Web hosting and video-on-demand streaming service.

The UltraNEXUS-HD and UltraNEXUS-HD Blade also easily accommodate live streaming so Internet viewers can watch your events while they happen. Simply connect the IncodeX Stream live streaming media encoder to an output on the UltraNEXUS-HD/UltraNEXUS-HD Blade. The encoder captures and delivers the stream to the VieBit live streaming service, making the event immediately available to viewers without putting any strain on a local network.

Remote Recording Control

Included ePRO-BUS control allows the UltraNEXUS-HD and UltraNEXUS-HD Blade to send scheduled or immediate record commands to up to 16 LABvault-SD and LABvault-HD digital player/recorders. When the LABvault units finish recording, they automatically transfer the digital media files back to the UltraNEXUS-HD/UltraNEXUS-HD Blade.

Remote Broadcasting

Cover a remote, live event without a direct video feed by letting the LABvault-HD digital video encoder and the Internet deliver it for you. The LABvault-HD pre-send and auto-play features allow programs remotely recorded to be automatically sent to and broadcast at an UltraNEXUS-HD/UltraNEXUS-HD Blade site within minutes after a recording starts.

Dynamic Video Content

The TOTAL INFO-HD dynamic video content option brings the latest news, traffic, weather, and more to television channels powered by the UltraNEXUS-HD/UltraNEXUS-HD Blade. TOTAL INFO-HD is perfect for complementing regularly scheduled programming or providing the primary content for information and entertainment channels.

User Interfaces


Included with the UltraNEXUS-HD and UltraNEXUS-HD Blade is the WinLGX management and control software. WinLGX provides all of the tools necessary for local and remote system control of LEIGHTRONIX digital video servers and system controllers via TCP/IP network. System configuration, drag and drop scheduling with error checking, and system status are all easily managed through the software’s powerful yet easy-to-use interface.
