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.


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.

Channels Television and Deutsche Welle Video Transport via Streambox

CHANNELS-1-1024x640Channels Television, the largest privately owned Nigerian Broadcaster, and     Deutsche Welle, the German International TV Broadcaster have recently signed  an agreement for the advancement of quality content and collaboration in  coverage of African and European news using Streambox Solutions. Streambox, a long time IP broadcast video solutions provider for Channels TV, offers reliable video transport solutions to provide content contribution between both broadcasters. The project has been deployed by Otus Systems Nigeria in collaboration with NEWSBOX Frankfurt. NEWSBOX transmits daily live reports from the Frankfurt Stock Exchange contributing to  Channels TV evening news show, The World Today, using Streambox 9200 Video Transport Encoder for on air broadcasts from 17:30 until 18:00 hrs local time Monday to Friday.


The Project: From Frankfurt, Germany to Lagos, Nigeria – LIVE

Channels Television and Deutsche Welle’s agreement is designed to facilitate and enhance content sharing and transmission across Africa and Europe.

By working with DW, Channels Television can provide its target audience of Nigerian business and opinion leaders a direct link to business and economic news coming from Europe. Daily live broadcasts from the Frankfurt Stock Exchange are deployed by NEWSBOX and Otus Systems using Streambox Video Transport Solutions.

NEWSBOX, the provider for DW has deployed the Streambox 9200 half duplex Rackmount Encoder/Decoder solution for live video transport from Frankfurt Stock Exchange to Channels TV’s Streambox Enterprise Server where the video is automatically routed to decoder for playout.




Channels TV Deploys  Streambox Video Transport Solutions

Channels TV has chosen Streambox because of its unique system and platform offering a wide range of solutions to cover various video transport needs. Content collaboration between DW and Channels TV  is driven by the need to further advance the strengths and opportunities inherent by the broadcasters in Africa and Europe and to bring the African story to Europe and the rest of the world. Otus Systems has implemented a complete end-to-end Streambox workflow at Channels Television for national and global live and file based video acquisition, contribution, management and distribution. This workflow includes Steambox Avenir Mini mobile network bonding encoders and Streambox 9300/9200 decoder series. The end-to-end solution also incorporates Streambox Enterprise Server for video management, routing, archiving and playout between locations.

Streambox Video Transport Solutions allow this content exchange with minimal delays and no need for dedicated lines, providing a significant cost reduction in operations. Streambox’s proprietary ACT-L3 video compression and reliable LDMP protocol allow high quality video with reliable streaming over the public Internet using low bandwidths available in the area. As a half-duplex model, the Streambox 9200 deployed for this project, works as encoder or decoder and provides organizations with  the capabilities to either capture, send or recieve playout video. This allows users to  get unrivaled HD quality at 512 Kbps to 35 Mbps and outstanding SD quality at 64 Kbps to 25 Mbps. For consistent reliable streaming, the Streambox 9200 uses proprietary LDMP video transprot technology to continuously monitor and select the best possible pathway from all available networks, including 3G/4G, Wi-Fi and other IP. Advanced ACT-L3 compression provides higher-quality encoding with low latency. Thanks to Streambox’s LDMP protocol, Channels TV receives the signal from Frankfurt Stock Exchange at 1.8 MB with zero packet loss at minimal latency. With the Steambox workflow, Channels Television could now receive news and video contribution from around the globe using  Streambox Cloud.
