NAB 2014 & Seattle – The new 4K Software Encoder/Player allow 4K realtime transmissions or the creation of 4K files in an easy function for streaming, broadcasting, post production and live events.
Streambox will be demonstrating Streambox ACT-L3 4K encoding software and Media Player at NAB 2014. The Streambox ACT-L3 4K encoder is an adaptive bitrate encoder capable of encoding full resolution 3840 x 2160 UHD or 4096×2160 4K Cinema DCI 23.98, 24, 29.97 and 30 fps 4K videos from 4 Mbps up to 50 Mbps in realtime with currently available video equipment. The ACT-L3 Software Encoding engine is designed for multi-core encoding and utilizes all available CPU cores and is capable of encoding 50-60 fps 4K videos in realtime. The ACT-L3 4K encoder can record 4K videos to a file or as it streams for Store and Forward applications.
The Streambox ACT-L3 4K encoder has many advanced features including optimized 1-click presets that automate the workflow from video capture to transmission and playout. The ACT-L3 4K Encoders and Decoders support LDMP networking for reliable multi-path IP based 4K transmission over the public Internet for point-to-point 4K video contributions. For point-to-multi-point and many-to-many 4K video contributions and sharing the Streambox Enterprise Server will need to be included in the workflow.
