Streambox will be attending SMPTE 2017 Annual Technical Conference and Exhibition. Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE) will be taking place in Hollywood, CA October 23rd-26th. The event was first introduced in 1916, and has since then been awarded several Oscar and Emmy awards for its work pushing forward the advancement of moving-imagery engineering. The “Society” is molding the common practices and providing education for the film industry as it evolves further into IT- and IP-based workflows.

Streambox intends to help push the common standards and practices of recording film with their latest products and technology. The newest product from Streambox, the HD Rackmount will be showed off at the conference. By providing low-latency, the rackmount is designed for reliable video streaming and collaboration over IP networks. The rackmount is able to be upgraded for 2K and 4 Channel Audio. With secure End-to-End video encryption and its ease of use, the HD rackmount should create some buzz at SMPTE.

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.

On Tuesday, October 11, 2016 Streambox powered the official livestream of The IMMERSE Technology Summit from Bellevue, Washington to YouTube and separate sessions and interviews to Facebook. Using Streambox Avenir Micro with an Embedded Module Module and Streambox Cloud, Streambox captured conference sessions, the expo, and interviews by CNDY Factory, in full HD and 360.

The IMMERSE Technology Summit is the Northwest’s premier event for VR/AR and Mixed Reality business leaders, developers, content creators, software architects, hardware engineers and researchers. This year 1,000 attendees in manufacturing, design, education, health and medicine, architecture, real estate, social experiences, tourism, entertainment and beyond connected over the latest VR technologies and Streambox livestreamed it.

Streambox powered three separate camera feeds, all going to Facebook and YouTube. One stream was from a fixed camera capturing the sessions in HD. The second stream was also a fixed HD stream for CNDY Factory’s interviews. The third was a 360 feed roaming around the expo hall where viewers could be truly immersed in the summit experience.

For each feed Streambox used an Avenir Micro with Embedded Modem Module outfitted with Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint SIM cards. The Avenir Micro compressed the video using the priority ACT-L3 codec and bonded the cellular carriers for delivery to Streambox Cloud for transcoding and live adaptive multi-bitrate playout to Facebook and YouTube.

The three streams looked great and allowed many people on Facebook to experience the summit. All in all it was a success on every level.

City of Seattle Live Streams with Streambox

By | 9200 Rackmount, Avenir, Avenir Micro, Broadcast, Cloud, Apps & Software, Live Events, Streambox Cloud Services, Success Stories | No Comments

On Monday, September 26, 2016, Seattle Mayor Ed Murray used Streambox to livestream his 2017 city budget proposal to YouTube, Facebook, and the city’s websites.

While Mayor Murray gave his speech from City Hall, Seattle Channel, Seattle’s government access TV station, had a Streambox 9200 rackmount at its broadcast center receiving video from the HD video cameras. The 9200 encoded and sent the live video stream to Streambox Cloud for transcoding and delivery.

For redundancy Seattle Channel had a backup system of a ProRes camera connected to a Streambox Avenir Micro mobile encoder in City Hall Chambers. The Avenir Micro bonds all available wired and wireless networks for reliable streaming even in areas where one network would not suffice. Although the backup unit was not needed, having it available provided comfort for the staff concerned with reliability given previous streaming failures.

Seattle Channel used Streambox Cloud for distribution to Facebook, YouTube, and Seattle Channel’s website, as well as using Streambox’s embedded plugin for the City of Seattle website. Streambox provides multi bitrate streaming which matches the best possible resolution and bitrate with the viewer’s bandwidth, giving them the best video their internet speed will allow.

City of Seattle’s CTO, Michael Mattmiller, watched the feed on multiple devices to oversee reliability due to the fact that Seattle Channel’s previous solutions had not been able to achieve sustained reliability. Streambox performed perfectly on not only one, but four sites at once so Seattle Channel now has a clear and reliable solution for the future.

Streambox Expands Cloud to Support Facebook Live

By | Avenir Micro, Cloud, Apps & Software, Drone Encoder, Live Events, Mobile Video Encoders, Press Release | No Comments

July 27, 2016 (Seattle) – Streambox Inc.® announced today integrated playout to Facebook Live®, available immediately. Streambox has added native support for Facebook Live playout through Streambox Cloud Services using all Streambox video encoders.

Live video is the best way to be seen on Facebook. Facebook prioritizes live video on top of News Feed and has found that, on average, people watch a live video more than three times longer than its file-based counterpart. Live also drives engagement, Facebook has found that people comment greater than 10 times more often on Live videos than on regular videos. Facebook Live is already a powerful tool by itself, but with Streambox it becomes a valuable tool for everyone who wants to stream high quality live videos to their audience.

Without Streambox’s solutions Facebook Live is a mobile app limited by a phone’s camera and a wireless connection. Streambox allows producers to move beyond the phone and single network by allowing use of higher quality HD-SDI/HDMI cameras, network bonding for reliability and higher bandwidth, multi-stream management, and live production.

Alex Telitsine, CTO of Streambox said, “In many cases we see that single network iPhone streaming to Facebook fails where people are in a crowded environment or on the road.” Facebook advises users to only use WiFi when streaming live as a 3G/4G connection will not offer enough bandwidth to deliver quality video without buffering. The most interesting and relevant content may not be in an area with WiFi. Streambox untethers its users from the WiFi restriction by bonding multiple networks (including 3G/4G/WiFi/internet) to build enough bandwidth to stream high-quality, uninterrupted video. Streambox also compresses live video without significant quality loss to allow for low bandwidth transport using a proprietary codec: Advanced Compression Technology – Level 3 (ACT-L3) combined with Low Delay Multi-Path network Protocol technology (LDMP) for low latency adaptive bitrate streaming. LDMP automatically maintenances the best possible bandwidth, latency, and resolution over multiple IP networks, allowing delivery even where network bandwidth fluctuate.

Streambox moves beyond the restriction of only using the camera on a phone with the ability to add one or multiple professional level cameras. Media outlets can switch cameras live and vet feeds once it reaches Streambox Cloud or Enterprise servers and decide what streams will go to Facebook Live. Along with feed management, Streambox provides the ability to add post-production effects with live team contribution via third party software.

Streambox’s support for Facebook Live allows producers to elevate their content and drive engagement, allowing for live professional standards on social media. Go to streambox.com/facebook for more info on set-up and configuration.
