Jonathan Bloom uses Streambox solutions to broadcast reliable live HD video in the field. Jonathan is a television news innovator who joined the ABC 7 team, and strives to tell better stories through the use of technology. For the past few months, Jonathan has been a one man machine, writing, filming, editing and reporting live news for his viewers. Being on the look out to find a better way to effectively respond to breaking news more quickly, Jonathan reached out to Streambox for a solution.
Streambox, being in the business of live video, came up with a solution for Jonathan. Using the AVENIRMicro, which is a mobile live video encoder, Jonathan could stream either live 360 video or normal HD video to Facebook. The AVENIRMicro is able to do this over WiFi or by using the embedded 3G/4G modem module installed in its hardware. The video stream is then sent to Streambox’s cloud service, Streambox Cloud, which then is able to archive and send live video to social media. Furthermore, the Micro is able to switch between different cell towers owned by different cellular networks (AT&T, Verison, Sprint, etc.) in order to maintain the best quality and reliable video.
Jonathan has been using this solution, and it has proven to be very effective and easy to operate. You can check out an example of Jonathan Bloom’s work above, which contains a live 360 video broadcast. To see more of Jonathan’s videos feel free to follow him on Facebook, Twitter, and of course on television on ABC 7.
