February 20, 2018  Seattle –  Streambox will present upcoming next-generation video compression technology, ACT-L5 Codec, their new modular 4K/2K/HD Rackmount encoder and decoder, and Cloud and software solutions for low latency live remote sessions at the 2018 Håollywood Professional Association (HPA) Tech Retreat.

 

The next generation ACT-L5 Codec produces the 12-bit, 4:4:4 RGB color profile required for cinematic, episodic, and commercial color grading and editing. This is also ideal for live events, digital signage,  and broadcast video where High Dynamic Range (HDR) video is desired.

Streambox products provide secure and ease-of-use solutions for cinematic, episodic, and commercial live sessions for post production workflows by providing:

  • Remote real-time creative collaborations including color grading & editing over the Internet and MPLS networks.
  • Cloud for multi-location Post Production allowing teams and owners to collaborate
  • Mix and match hardware and software of  MacOS, iOS, Windows, and Android  products to meet project requirements and budget
  • ACT-L5 Codec for 4:4:4 RGB Color support (to be demoed at the show). The ACT-L5 video codec, designed to work with Rec.709, DCI-P3, and Rec.2020 is setting a new bar for production quality.
  • Software Apps and modules include: HD, 2K, and 4K encoder/decoder, media players for MacOS, iOS, Windows, and Android, encryption, 2K Stereo Video, 12-bit 4:4:4
  • Strong AES-128 encryption for content protection

Streambox new modular Rackmount HD 2K 4K 3D encoders and decoders

Streambox Modular Encoder / Decoder rackmounts based on the industry-leading ACT-L3/ACT-L5  codec for unrivaled performance, reliability, high quality, and low latency, video over IP networks. Streambox Modular rackmounts are well suited for Broadcast, Enterprise, and secure collaboration for Post Production workflows.

Streambox Cloud

Streambox’s  Cloud Service is a secure service that provides reliable multi-point collaboration infrastructure and software for the needs of post-production professionals. Streambox Cloud supports encrypted streams, high-quality HD, and 4K low latency videos for review, edit, and color grading.

Streambox NODE

NODE is a small form factor media player device supporting ten video channels which will automatically “pull” live video from Streambox Cloud and Enterprise Server or directly receive from an encoder for live video playout to HDMI connected monitors.

Other products Streambox will present during the webinar include 4K & Hybrid HD software encoder, Media Player Pro, new iOS Media Player, etc.

Streambox Technology

Advanced Streaming Codec

All Streambox products are powered by the proprietary codec, Advanced Compression Technology – Level 3 (ACT-L3), Advanced Program 2017. Streambox ACT-L3 AP 2017 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, allowing Streambox products to gracefully handle network bandwidth fluctuations and dropouts which are often seen over public or shared network environments.

New Frame Sync for Rackmount Encoders

By | 9200 Rackmount, 9300 Rackmount, Streambox Rackmounts | No Comments

Streambox has added a frame synchronizer to its 9200, 9300, 9400, and 3D-IMAG rackmount encoders. Some camera switchers do not support audio visual synchronization so when changing cameras with one of these switchers there would be a buffering delay. Now, with frame synchronization built into the encoder the delay is only one frame (unnoticeable to the human eye) no matter the quality of the camera switcher.

Seattle Mayor Ed Murray Broadcasts Live with Streambox

By | 9200 Rackmount, Avenir Mini, Broadcast, Events & Media Coverage, Government & Military, Live Events, Streambox Platform Solutions | No Comments

Mayor Ed Murray delivers a special presentation of the 2017 State of the City address from Idris Mosque using Streambox, highlighting how Seattle is moving forward as a welcoming city that is building greater affordability, opportunity and equity for all residents.

The city of Seattle used AVENIR Mini to broadcast live footage of Ed Murrays city address. Designed for broadcasters, the Streambox Avenir Mini is a small form factor, lightweight encoder with integrated network bonding that replaces the need for microwave and satellite trucks at a fraction of the cost.

Using proprietary technology, the device continuously monitors and selects the best possible pathway from all available networks, including 3G/4G/LTE, Wi-Fi and other IP networks, so you get consistent SD and HD streaming with outstanding quality.

The stream was then decoded by Streambox 9200 RackmountThe scalable encoder lets you encode, transport reliable video over public internet and play out live video at a fraction of the cost vs competing encoders requiring higher cost MPLS or dedicated networks for reliable video contribution.

V-ANC

Improved Rackmount V-ANC Support

By | 9200 Rackmount, 9300 Rackmount, Streambox 3D-IMAG, Streambox 4k, Streambox Rackmounts | No Comments

Streambox rackmount encoders now have improved support for capture, encoding, and transmission of vertical ancillary data, also known as V-ANC, by adding advanced mapping functions for easier integration with other systems. Ancillary data is non-video information such as closed captions and advertisement insertion triggers.

Streambox rackmount decoders can output vertical ancillary data information via HD-SDI but some downstream equipment might require data to be mapped to specific V-ANC lines. In this case, the new Streambox decoder, version 3.164.12, and new web UI allows users to assign a specific data type to a specific V-ANC line using packet identifier DID (Data IDentifier).

For example, in the screenshot below, Closed Captions (packet DID 161) are mapped to video line 9 and SCTE-104 events (packet DID 241) are mapped to line 13. Up to 3 different packet types can be assigned.

Note: traditionally, DID (Data Identifier word) is represented as a hexadecimal number. The decoder will perform automatic V-ANC data placement if the DID is zero.
