New 2K-HD Encoder and Decoder

2K Encoder & Decoder

Streambox is proud to announce its newest product, the 2K-HD Encoder and Decoder, designed for post production collaboration. The 2K-HD encoder and decoder system extends on widely deployed ACT-L3 HD encoders at many leading film studios, post production facilities, and advertising agencies. The 2K-HD  provides secure, real-time, remote, collaborative workflows for post production professionals by providing low latency HD and 2K video over public and private IP networks. Producers, engineers, and colorists can now deliver real-time services with a bottom line advantage for color correction, remote editorial, and final review. The 2K-HD encoder and decoder stands out because of its high video quality over low bandwidth IP, ease of use, and security. Streambox is offering a savings of $8,835 off of pair of 2K-HD Encoders through May 31, 2017.

Video Quality

The Streambox 2K-HD Encoder and Decoder sends high-quality, color accurate, 10-bit video over IP networks with bitrates up to 75 Mbps (the compression sweet spots for remote color grading and edit reviews is between 10 Mbps – 30 Mbps). The 2K-HD Encoder and Decoder uses the new ACT-L3 AP 2017 compression and Low Delay Multi-Path protocol (LDMP) for reliable transport over IP networks.

Ease of Use

The Streambox 2K-HD Encoder and Decoder offers a 1-2 second, end-to-end, stream latency for real-time collaboration. The encoder and decoder can be controlled both remotely, ideal for a non-technical team member to view content without any setup, or locally, ideal for technical team members that want full control over equipment. The 2K-HD Encoder and Decoder accommodates secure one-to-one collaboration workflows (e.g., technical team members collaborating remotely) and secure one-to-many review and approval workflows (e.g., executive review by the entire team).


The Streambox 2K-HD Encoder and Decoder comes standard with end-to-end AES 128-bit encryption for secure video content transport (with AES 192-bit and 256-bit encryption available upon request). Streambox encryption does not increase latency and security is further augmented by the New ACT-L3 AP 2017 proprietary compression codec.

Streambox Technology

Advanced Streaming Codec

All Streambox products are powered by the proprietary codec, Advanced Compression Technology – Level 3 (ACT-L3). Streambox ACT-L3 compression allows for fast encoding with low latency and is optimized for video transmission over any IP connection. ACT-L3 is capable of compressing high motion, complex video at low data rates with the advanced motion search feature.

Streambox LDMP Technology

All Streambox products come equipped with Streambox exclusive Low Delay Multi-Path technology (LDMP). Streambox LDMP protocol allows low latency adaptive bitrate streaming on public and private networks. Streambox encoders will automatically select the best possible bandwidth, latency, and resolution over multiple IP networks, thus allowing Streambox products to gracefully handle network bandwidth fluctuations and dropouts, which are often seen over public or shared network environments.
