Streaming from Challenging Situations Such as Drones

Remote field reporters need to set up quickly and transmit full HD, low latency video over bonded 3G,4G, WiFi, and Internet networks. The AVENIR Drone can acquire hard to capture video and includes a universal camera adaptor for easy mounting.

Capturing high quality action at live games or events and transmitting it to viewers can be a logistical and technical challenge. Streambox innovative codec and transport technologies permit users to set up quickly and reliably transport high quality media over a variety of low bandwidth connections as events unfold. Live event production crews are able to simulcast events from unique perspectives in full HD with the AVENIR Drone.

For security, streaming out from a facility for critical remote monitoring is often required. Overhead surveillance of events is needed to help ensure public safety. Comprehensive situational awareness must include an aerial perspective for military and defense maneuvers. Avenir Drone provides reliable video streaming acquisition for various types of mission-critical applications.

AVENIR Drone is a lightweight live video encoder in a compact form factor designed to work with an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) on a dashboard or as a wearable device to enable streaming of live video from challenging and unique locations. The encoder provides enhanced bonded connectivity capabilities with significantly more efficient encoding for HD video. AVENIR Drone has recently been updated to a new design with increased processing and capabilities including the ability to also be used as a decoder, and increasing the bandwidth to 30 Mbps. Engineered for easy integration and outstanding quality, the miniature, low-power device can be used for broadcasting, safety and security monitoring, military and defense situational awareness, and various other streaming applications.

The integrated system is based on a mobile hardware device CPU that enables HD-SDI and HDMI video capture. AVENIR Drone is a small form factor, lightweight device weighing just 300 grams, consuming only 10 watts of power to run for 6 hours on a single battery.

AVENIR Drone performs as a dedicated portable encoder for live video transmissions, bonding any available network connections using the Streambox ACT-L3 (Advanced Compression Technology Level 3) codec and LDMP (Low Delay Multi-Path technology) to deliver high quality video with low latency. This combination delivers high quality video at significantly lower bitrates requiring less bandwidth than other systems.

The AVENIR Drone provides highly efficient encoding for HD broadcasting with first and last mile connectivity through seamless integration via Streambox decoders, Streambox Enterprise Server, or Streambox Cloud Services to receive, archive and route video for playout in local, regional or worldwide deployments.

By using existing cellular and other network data plans, AVENIR Drone helps lower monthly OpEx costs, compared to leasing extra equipment and services that include marked-up data plans. The AVENIR Drone, with its superior video compression and transport, consumes up to 30% less data for HD video, helping to lower data consumption of live streaming news and events.

Streambox Cloud Contribution

Streambox Cloud Services

A few technology trends are coalescing to make real-time collaboration attainable. The advent of a robust Cloud based infrastructure makes global connectivity plausible for all sorts of data. Streambox Cloud Services can be utilized to stream content to a single or to multiple locations. Streambox Cloud Services are available even on a project by project basis.

Streambox Cloud Services are secure and support multi-users groups to deliver high quality, full color range video to multiple locations cost effectively over the public Internet.

Reliable, low latency video transport is provided via regional servers around the globe. Live streams even from multiple locations are accessible via a single web page and rule base management can be set up to automatically route streams to single or group destinations. Live streams can be pushed or pulled from Streambox Cloud on either side of firewalls.

Streambox Cloud Services are used to reliably distribute live sessions over long distances with minimal latencies and assures “first mile” quality with adaptive contribution. Cloud services can be configured to automatically pull live streams using Streambox NODE 2 device, PC software and Mobile Media app players, and to save live video to be archived and viewed later.

Mobile Media Player

Mobile Media Player is a high performance, low latency application for iPad and iPhone devices. The application provides ten programmable channels to automatically “pull” live video streams from Streambox Cloud Services and Enterprise Server or receive an incoming stream directly from a Streambox encoder.

The iOS based player application provides superior quality media with low cost remote viewing wherever there is Internet access. Users benefit from 2K and HD 8 or 10-bit video playout with up to 6 channels of uncompressed audio.

The player application includes AES 128-bit video encryption for security that protects intellectual property with no increase in stream latency.

Users can set up and configure up to 10 video channels to automatically pull or receive a unique video stream from Streambox Cloud Services, Enterprise Server or from a point‐to‐point connection with a Streambox encoder.

Mobile Media Player works behind NAT/Firewall without static IP using Streambox Cloud or Enterprise Server. Streaming occurs with multi-path bonded LDMP 2.0 and UDP protocols on mobile or WiFi networks.

Come to Los Angeles and see Streambox high-performance media streaming solutions for post-production applications at SMPTE 2018.

Complete end-to-end workflows specifically tuned to the needs of broadcasters are enabled by Streambox broadcast solutions. By using Streambox systems, the costs of covering live events can be reduced by supplementing or removing existing satellite or microwave links.

For critical application such as a live two way interview, the Streambox Chroma advanced encoder / decoder offers high quality UHD and HD streaming. The optimized Streambox ACT L3/L5 codec supports various frame rates and bit depths- even 12-bit 4:4:4 RGB. Content can also contain HDR in different standards and up to 16 channels of uncompressed audio. Chroma functions as a streaming decoder and player at network and station facilities as well. Chroma also integrates easily into outside broadcast vehicles to remotely manage and distribute streaming video.

The AVENIR Micro mobile encoder is modular and stackable, permitting remote field reporters to set up quickly and transmit full HD, low latency video over bonded 3G,4G, WiFi, Ethernet, SNG / DNG, and Internet networks. The Avenir Mini 5 mobile encoder includes all of the capabilities of AVENIRMicro as well as being camera mountable with five embedded modems. Avenir encoders reliably transport high quality media over a variety of low bandwidth connections as events unfold.

Transport from the encoders can include point to point connection with a Streambox media player, or to multiple local and/or globally placed remote players using Streambox Enterprise Server or Streambox Cloud Services. Cloud Services adds the flexibility and scalability of establishing a robust first mile connection and use of reliable Cloud-based distribution to any number of designated destinations around the world.

There are a number of options for playing out streaming media content from Streambox. A Chroma hardware decoder can be used for the most demanding situations. A smaller, lower cost hardware option is the NODE 2 media player. This is a small form factor device that includes up to 10 programmable channels with support for HDR and 6 channels of audio. There are players for both Windows and Mac based computer systems. For a more mobile experience, Streambox offers a Mobile Media Player iOS application for iPads and iPhones, with an Android version coming soon.
