Compatible video resolutions / frame rates

The BoxCaster is capable of receiving NTSC and PAL inputs via the composite port, and the following HD video standards via the HDMI port:

  • 480p 29.97/30/59.94/60

  • 525p 60
  • 576p 25/50

  • 720p 25/29.97/30/50/59.94/60

  • 1080i 50/59.94/60

  • 1080p 25/29.97/30/50/59.94/60

Any analog audio is supported; inputs are line-level. Uncompressed (L-PCM) HDMI audio is also supported at 44.1 or 48 kHz.


Note 1: We will output a 1080 signal natively at 1080p30 or you can hardcode the stream to 1080 (Settings - BoxCaster - Edit - Advanced Settings) if you send a 1080i59.97/60 signal. All other 1080 signals will be served out at 720.

Note 2: These are the frame rates of streaming at the following resolutions. 

720p60 input encodes 720p at 30fps
1080p60 input encodes 720p at 30fps
1080p30 input encodes 1080p at 27fps
1080i60 input encodes 1080p at 23fps

Note 3: The BoxCaster has to encode for a specific standard so switching between standards mid-stream (e.g. changing resolutions or switching from HDMI to RCA) will cause video failure.
