This means you can send video between remote locations across your local Ethernet network, or via the internet globally. That's all possible due to the built-in H.264 hardware codec that decodes the Web Presenter stream. Imagine setting up multiple television studios and using ATEM Streaming Bridge and Web Presenter for video links between sites.
