NewTR News Agency is an international TV news organization with its central headquarters based in London, UK, with multiple offices around the world. The organization has been using the Streambox AVENIR Mini product-line for over 8 years with great success.
Streambox provides live video over IP products and solutions with network bonding technology. This technology provides news contribution services for many leading news organizations around the globe.
Recently NewTR News Agency upgraded to the newest bonded cellular mobile encoder, the AVENIR Mini 4.
NewTR was very pleased with the improved performance provided by the Mini 4 with five 3G/4G/LTE embedded modems, with options to add 2 or more additional modems, plus the capabilities of two wifi connections. The Mini 4 consumes less power and is able to last 3-8 hours depending on battery size and condition.
The AVENIR Mini now includes multiple ways to be controlled, either with direct LCD access, remote web access, or via the easy to use mobile app. The NewTR team was able to control the unit locally, and remotely from a long distance using the new Mini 4 features.
With the new Mini 4, NewTR is able to continue to offer its high quality news contribution services from multiple locations around the globe including Istanbul, Paris, Berlin, Washington, New York, Moscow, Kuala Lumpur, Aleppo, and Bern.
Although the AVENIR Mini products were designed as camera-mountable units, they are well suited, and used as a standalone encoders connected to cameras and video sources. NewTR uses the Mini 4 for both camera-mountable and standalone units.
