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.
