Streambox Sessions is a simple and cost effective way to connect post-production, visual effects, broadcast and media organizations who require remote sharing of secure, high quality color rich content sessions is ideal for offsite producers, directors, colorists, editors, advisers and other creatives who need to participate in productions no matter where they are located. By offering secure connectivity that is low and cost and complexity, Streambox makes shared streaming capabilities easy for organizations to adopt and utilize when they need it, where they need it.
These days everyone is used to using videoconferencing applications. Streambox has introduced an updated sharing process for Session similar to the way meetings are set up in those applications.
There is an updated Sessions share dialog located on the live page found at Live.Streambox.com. After selecting the Sessions tab a new session can be created or one that was created previously can be selected which opens a share dialog. Users are presented with the choice to copy a session ID to the clipboard, to send an email invitation which opens a generic invitation in a default email application, or to send a session link to the clipboard where the session link can be used in a calendar invitation to send out to the review team.
On the given date and time the link can be opened and the Sessions link will open a Streambox media player installed on either a Mac OS or iOS device and automatically initiates the session playout in about 30 seconds. All collaborators are able to view a stream in real time. The whole process is just that easy.
Sessions is one example of the Streambox commitment to real time, high quality media production collaboration.
Streambox Sessions works with Streambox encoders on the origination side, and Streambox decoders and players for viewing media. Sessions functionality includes stream encryption to ensure content security. Sessions is also cost-effective as the host party only pays for what they use when they need for a particular project. Organizations can purchase a set amount of data to be used with Sessions through the Streambox on-line store or by contacting Streambox sales.
