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.

Streambox Avenir Micro and Drone are modular and stackable mobile encoders for transmitting SD and full HD low-latency video over bonded 3G, 4G, WiFi, ethernet, SNG, DNG, BGAN, VSAT satellite, and internet networks. Designed for easy integration and outstanding quality, the miniature, low-power devices support HDR video and can be used with HD-SDI and HDMI cameras. The Avenir encoders can be used for streaming live events, public safety video, unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) video, and various other video applications.

Streambox NDI Player allows users to seamlessly receive and decode live video from any Streambox encoder to a compatible NDI receiver. NDI allows multiple video systems to identify and communicate with one another over IP for encoding, transmitting, and receiving many streams of high quality, low latency, frame-accurate video and audio in real-time.

The Tricaster Add-on allows Streambox users to directly stream live HD/SD video at resolutions up to 1080p from any Streambox encoder (both hardware and software) into a TriCaster production system.

Streambox 4K Rackmount Encoder/Decoder is designed for low-bandwidth high quality 4K UHD video encoding, transmission, and playout of either live or file-based SD, HD, or UHD video over IP networks. This reduces broadcast costs while maintaining high-performance and reliability for professionals working with the highest quality video available today.

Case Study: Gospel Channel

By | Avenir Micro, Cloud, Apps & Software, Events & Media Coverage, Mobile Video Encoders, Streambox Cloud Services, Streambox Partners, Streambox Platform Solutions, Success Stories | No Comments

Gospel Channel, a Christian TV station in Iceland, needed to send high quality video between its US and Scandinavian studios via a 4 Mbps connection. Using a Streambox AVENIRMicro, with it’s low bandwidth consumption, reliable point-to-point connections, high quality image, and low cost transmissions over Streambox Cloud Services was the perfect solution.

Gospel Channel was the first station in Scandinavia to broadcast Christian content. Now, after 24 years on air, from their studios in Iceland, Norway, and Florida, Gospel Channel can reach 80% of Iceland’s population through terrestrial transmitters and cable systems as well as 12 million homes in the UK, Ireland, and Scotland through satellite.

gospel1At first, being constrained to 4 Mbps bandwidth, Gospel Channel struggled to establish good connectivity for their studio in Orlando, Florida. Instead of resorting to costly ways to improve their network, Gospel Channel used Streambox to deliver the high quality video they needed at a lower bandwidth using the AVENIRMirco mobile encoder and Streambox Cloud Services.

The AVENIRMirco video encoder compresses incoming video with a proprietary codec: Advanced Compression Technology – Level 3 (ACT-L3). ACT-L3 is optimized for efficiency, low bandwidth, and high video fidelity. In addition, Streambox employs Low Delay Multi-Path technology (LDMP) which automatically maintains the best possible bandwidth, latency, and resolution over multiple IP networks. The combination of ACT-L3 and LDMP in the small AVENIRMicro footprint provided Gospel Channel a method to deliver its ministries, talks shows, and music programs even where network bandwidth was not optimal.

gospel2Gospel Channel uses Streambox Cloud for stream management as well. The Streambox Cloud management capabilities have been very important in coordinating the time differences between Florida, Norway, and Iceland. Gospel Channel also uses point-to-point Cloud Encoder software whenever they need an extra video stream, keeping their system robust and malleable to changing needs.

Since Gospel Channel uses the NewTek Tricaster they implemented the free Streambox TriCaster add-on to simplify their operations. With the TriCaster add-on, Gospel Channel can stream live HD/SD video at resolutions up to 1080p directly from Streambox encoders into the TriCaster production system. The TriCaster add-on is ideal for Gospel Channel as they stream live multi-cam productions from Florida, Iceland, and Norway over 3G/4G/WiFi/ethernet networks.

gospel3Gospel Channel looked for a solution that worked for their present needs and that would be sustainable in the future. Currently, Gospel Channel has no video on demand, but this is something that it wants to implement in the near future as well as move to all HD content (which is currently not practical due to satellite restrictions).

Gospel Channel has been a Streambox customer since 2010 owing to the value and reliability of Streambox streaming technologies. Streambox support has assisted the Gospel Channel throughout the entire process: all information and presets were provided, which Gospel Channel said made implementation “a plug and live solution.” Gospel Channel has been kept up to date with all the newest Streambox developments; they were the first Scandinavian company to deploy AVENIRMirco in 2015 and will soon start streaming live to YouTube and Facebook. Streambox’s simple operations and low cost has enabled Gospel Channel the ability to produce more live content and engage with more viewers, providing a great return on investment.
