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.
