Streambox 4K Designed to Capture & Deliver Live Video in 4K Ultra HD over Public Internet
London, UK- January 15th, 2015 – Streambox, the leading provider of solutions that enable mobile video anywhere partnered with Celebro Media Studios, the UK’s first fully 4K TV studio to debut the first live broadcast in Ultra HD 4K Resolution from the UK. The new Streambox 4K Software Encoder/Player, coupled with the new 4K Rackmount Encoder/Decoder with simplified workflows, allow 4K real time transmissions in an easy function for streaming, broadcasting, post production and live events.
The demo included capture, encoding, delivery and play out of live streaming with a dedicated Single-link 6G-SDI signal through the 4K Rackmount encoder, transmitting to Streambox® Live™ Service, via public internet to a Streambox 4K Rackmount decoder. The second workflow included streaming with a dedicated Single-link 6G-SDI signal from the 4K software encoder, using public internet, into the Streambox 4K Rackmount decoder. Both tests were successful using Blackmagic and Red ONE cameras.
