Dubai Police Department streamed live video from their DJI drone using the Streambox AVENIRDrone Mobile Encoder over bonded cellular networks to the Streambox Cloud where the video was routed and streamed for low latency playout and viewing. The ability to use a Streambox Drone Encoder to stream live video cut costs and gave remote situational awareness for general surveillance.

The video above was captured using the Streambox AVENIRDrone Encoder. The AVENIRDrone is a lightweight mobile video encoder that can fit in the palm of your hand. Using Streambox technology, the AVENIRDrone is able to stream live HD video using a bonded mobile network. An optional Embedded Modem Module, that supports 3G/4G/LTE, was used for IP connectivity.

The AVENIRDrone is part of the Streambox AVENIR family. The encoder supports HD-SDI and HDMI video capture and streams in HD video at 2.5 Mbps over multiple cellular data connections to Streambox Cloud. From the Cloud, the video is routed to playout destinations that include live publishing to Facebook, Youtube, Twitter and even your own website.

Live video, with the option to be encrypted, is sent to the Streambox Cloud where it can be securely viewed by authorized users or routed to other destinations. The durability and ease of use of the AVENIRDrone make it an ideal product for public safety and security. To learn more about the AVENIRDrone and Streambox Cloud click the buttons below.

Jonathan Bloom Streams Live 360 Video Using Streambox for ABC

By | Avenir Micro, Cloud, Apps & Software | No Comments

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.
