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.

Come see the full range of proven streaming offerings that are in use with broadcasters and other media professional across the world at SMPTE 2018. Click the link below to sign up for a personal demonstration of Streambox products and services.

Streambox Introduces Mobile Media Player Application

Streambox Introduces Mobile Media Player Application

By | Cloud, Apps & Software, Education, Enterprise Server, Media Player, Post Production, Public Safety, Streambox Platform Solutions | No Comments

Mobile Media Player is an application supporting ten programmable video channels designed to integrate with other Streambox components for cost-effective viewing of high quality video on iPads and iPhones in real-time. The Mobile Media Player application is ideally suited for mobile or remote operations in production and other streaming workflows.

During live productions, vital personnel such as reporters, directors, and producers can get a real-time view from anywhere in the world and can monitor live video feeds. When applied to post-production, activities such as live remote editing and review of dailies can be done collaboratively in real-time. Used in security or public safety environments where immediate response is required, critical monitoring can occur from almost any location. In education, teachers can bring a real-time visual experience for students in remote locations. Complex procedures can be monitored for advisement by various types of technical specialists.

Mobile Media Player displays video in resolutions up to 2K. To sustain such superior quality media, Mobile Media Player uses Streambox reliable transport network protocol. Playout can include up to 6 channels of uncompressed audio.

The Mobile Media Player application is compatible with iPad and iPhone devices running operation system version 10 or higher and can be used with mobile and Wi-Fi networks for Internet connectivity.

Mobile Media Player is designed to automatically “pull” live video from Streambox Cloud Services, Streambox Enterprise Server, or directly point-to-point from various Streambox encoders such as Chroma for live playout.

Mobile Media Player keeps content secure as well by offering full video encryption for live video. End-to-end encryption, with a symmetric key, forms a protective shield around the transport of valuable video content with no increase in stream latency.

NORAD Uses Streambox to Track Santa Claus

By | Cloud, Apps & Software, Enterprise Server, Government & Military, Streambox Platform Solutions, Success Stories | No Comments

The North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) is a United States and Canada bi-national organization charged with the missions of aerospace warning, aerospace control, and maritime warning for North America.

This year we were informed the annual production in which the NORAD tracking center tracks the flight of Santa Claus is powered by Streambox. It is one of the largest non-military mobilizations of the year. Interviews and updates from the NORAD command center will be broadcasted live. They will also have feeds from various bases around the world.

The armed forces public affairs units use a Streambox kit for video streaming of speeches and other ceremonies. They stream video back to DVIDS, Defense Video Imagery Distribution System, a hub for video acquisition in Atlanta, which uses Enterprise Server and Decoders.

All of the kits (made by contractors such as Norsat and Encompass Digital Media) include a camera, a coverter box (Blackmagic Ultrastudio Mini Recorder), a Mac running Streambox Hybrid Software Encoder, and transmission equipment for satellite to capture video into the armed forces network and back to DVIDS.

NORAD used the same approach to track Santa Claus. To learn more about the Santa Tracker visit: https://www.noradsanta.org/
