Streambox Receives Technical Emmy for LDMP Transport

By | Broadcast, Cloud, Apps & Software, Education, Enterprise, Events & Media Coverage, Government & Military, House of Worship, Live Events, Post Production, Public Safety, Streambox Chroma, Streambox Cloud Services, Streambox Education Opportunities, Streambox Events | No Comments

At NAB 2019, Streambox received an Emmy® Award for Technology and Engineering in 2018 by the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. The award was granted to Streambox for their work on pioneering reliable transmission methodology for live contribution and distribution television links.

In 2011, Streambox introduced Low Delay Multi-Path (LDMP) technology to provide dynamic encoding adjustment for real-time video transport over multiple network types, assuring reliable video playout over unreliable WiFi, 3G, 4G, and wired public IP networks simultaneously with minimal latency. LDMP provides intelligent monitoring and utilization of accessible network paths to efficiently maximize available bandwidth and achieve higher rates of transport and playback with minimal 500 ms to around 1 second end-to end latency even over public Internet networks, at significantly lower bandwidth than other systems. Integrated support for network bonding means transport has additional reliability and redundancy.

In the past, a significant amount of real-time broadcast event coverage was restricted to expensive satellite connections or contending with 4 to 6 second delays using other networking connectivity, if and when available.

Broadcast applications such as remote news gathering, live news production, and live event contribution, Streambox have deployed LDMP technology on iPhones, iPads, personal computers, and hardware systems which can be connected to Cloud services to meet a wide range of requirements.

Streambox pioneered Cloud IP distribution of live media as well, which produced a dramatic decrease in latency and a substantial increase in reliability by providing enhanced first and last mile connectivity. Streambox Cloud Services distribution also uses LDMP for transport to any number of designated destinations around the world at high quality and low latency.

In conjunction with LDMP transport, Streambox systems offer end-to-end strong AES encryption with a symmetric key, forming a protective shield around the transport of valuable video content with no increase in stream latency.

Broadcasters are not the only ones to benefit from this exceptional technology. Business, HOW, Education, Public Safety, Defense, and Post-Production organizations also use Streambox solutions. Feature, trailer, advertising, or television production facilities use Streambox Chroma for collaborative applications including  live reviews, remote color grading, VFX creation, and editing.

Using Streambox technology and solutions offer users some key advantages for broadcast contribution and distribution, including the ability to work on networks they already use, the capability of streaming out to network locations, websites, and social media platforms simultaneously, and most importantly, the functionality of operating over standard public networks with high quality and low latency, even with limited bandwidth.

Jonathan Bloom Streams Live Video Using Streambox for CES2019

By | AVENIR Micro, Broadcast, Live Events, Success Stories | No Comments

Jonathan Bloom uses Streambox solutions to broadcast reliable live HD video in the field for CES2019. 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.

A full list of the award winners will be posted on the TV Technology (www.tvtechnology.com), Creative Planet/DV/VE Magazine (www.creativeplanetnetwork.com), and Government Video (www.governmentvideo.com) websites.

There is also a digital e-guide of all the nominees, which will be made available online by the end of December.

Streambox Chroma is a high performance, software defined, real-time streaming solution for broadcast applications such as remote newsgathering, live news production, and live event contribution, and post-production collaborative applications including live reviews, color grading, VFX creation, and editing.

With a history of innovative streaming products since 1999, Streambox has included a number of leading edge and future ready capabilities in the Linux-based Chroma platform.

There is a new optimized ACT-L5 codec that supports the most advanced color profiles, color spaces, color depths, and video resolutions. At a base level, Chroma offers 10-bit 4:2:2 HD video, but Chroma also works with HDR standards such as SMPTE 372 including HDR modes, Rec.709, DCI P3, Rec.2020, HDR10 PQ/HLG and Dolby Vision. Moving up a step, Chroma works with UHD/4K and can provide up to 12-bit 4:4:4 chroma sampling, again with HDR and Wide Color Gamut support as viewers come to expect the best visual experience in the future. For the most demanding post-production needs, Chroma brings RGB/XYZ color space at 2K and 4K DCI resolutions. Because Chroma can be configured with SDI plus HDMI output, the decoder can be set to include HDR metadata so that other software and hardware is not needed, and additional configuration and support which is not easy to manage remotely is not required.

The latest video interfaces are available as Quad link, Dual link 12G, 6G, 3G SDI I/O and HDMI output with Rec.2020, HDR-10 metadata support.

Support of up to 16 channels and of uncompressed PCM audio with 5.1 & 7.1 surround sound makes streaming of productions that even incorporate technologies such as Dolby Atomos and DTS-X no problem.

Unique to Streambox, is the specialized low delay multi-path protocol (LDMP) that is integrated with the encoder for dynamic real-time encoding adjustments for reliable video playout over unreliable IP networks. LDMP and the encoder continuously adjusts for optimized video transport performance on WiFi, 3G, 4G, and wired public IP networks. Support for network bonding means transport has additional reliability and redundancy. LDMP provides intelligent utilization of available network paths to achieve higher rates of transport and playback with minimal 500 ms to 2 second end-to end latency even over public internet networks at significantly lower bandwidth than other systems. Other advanced networking features include UDP unicast, broadcast, or multicast, adjustable Forward Error Correction, and correction embedded metadata. Master quality video and streaming bit rates of up to 120 Mbps enables the delivery of even cinematic quality video contribution.

Chroma can be configured to work with Streambox Cloud Services distribution to any number of designated destinations around the world maintaining high bandwidth with low latency, or set to work with a point to point connection, or to multiple local and/or globally placed remote decoders and players. A Chroma differentiator is that it can stream out simultaneously to network locations, websites, social media platforms simultaneously.

End-to-end strong AES encryption with a symmetric key, forms a protective shield around the transport of valuable video content with no increase in stream latency.

As a software defined platform, some capabilities can be added with a software upgrade. Chroma systems can function as just as an encoder, just a decoder, or both by how it is configured and there is an integrated software-based media player.

Chroma is easy to use taking 30 minutes or less for network setup and use for playout management. A Web based user interface with customizable presets and live video preview permits secure local or remote access.

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