Come to Los Angeles and see Streambox high-performance media streaming solutions for post-production applications at SMPTE 2018.

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

For critical application such as a live two way interview, the Streambox Chroma advanced encoder / decoder offers high quality UHD and HD streaming. The optimized Streambox ACT L3/L5 codec supports various frame rates and bit depths- even 12-bit 4:4:4 RGB. Content can also contain HDR in different standards and up to 16 channels of uncompressed audio. Chroma functions as a streaming decoder and player at network and station facilities as well. Chroma also integrates easily into outside broadcast vehicles to remotely manage and distribute streaming video.

The AVENIR Micro mobile encoder is modular and stackable, permitting remote field reporters to set up quickly and transmit full HD, low latency video over bonded 3G,4G, WiFi, Ethernet, SNG / DNG, and Internet networks. The Avenir Mini 5 mobile encoder includes all of the capabilities of AVENIRMicro as well as being camera mountable with five embedded modems. Avenir encoders reliably transport high quality media over a variety of low bandwidth connections as events unfold.

Transport from the encoders can include point to point connection with a Streambox media player, or to multiple local and/or globally placed remote players using Streambox Enterprise Server or Streambox Cloud Services. Cloud Services adds the flexibility and scalability of establishing a robust first mile connection and use of reliable Cloud-based distribution to any number of designated destinations around the world.

There are a number of options for playing out streaming media content from Streambox. A Chroma hardware decoder can be used for the most demanding situations. A smaller, lower cost hardware option is the NODE 2 media player. This is a small form factor device that includes up to 10 programmable channels with support for HDR and 6 channels of audio. There are players for both Windows and Mac based computer systems. For a more mobile experience, Streambox offers a Mobile Media Player iOS application for iPads and iPhones, with an Android version coming soon.

2018 will be an exciting year for Streambox, with many new product innovations including the new, more efficient ACT-L5 codec. We have released a number of new products and services for video professionals. Products like, the new Chroma RackmountVideo EncryptioniOS Media Player, and the upcoming NODE 2.

Streambox’s ACT-L5 compression codec provides the 12-bit, RGB 4:4:4 color profile required for cinematic, episodic, and commercial color grading and editing. Post production professionals can do native 12-bit RGB to simplify overall workflow.

Producers, engineers, and colorists can now deliver real-time services with a bottom line advantage for color correction, remote editorial, and final review. In addition, users can upgrade Streambox Chroma rackmounts with add-ons such as DCI 4K/2K with 4:4:4 RGB color in 12 or 10-bit and 12G-SDI, HDR, uncompressed audio, and native support for Rec.2020, DCI P3, and Rec.709.

Streambox iOS Media Player is a software decoder for iPad and iPhone devices. IP video is received from Streambox encoders or from Streambox Cloud services. It is well suited for point-to-point or point-to-multipoint streaming with streams being pushed (routed to) or pulled from Streambox Cloud Services. IPad screens are designed to handle P3 color space natively and provide perfect color match for POST reviews.

The Streambox Multi-Channel Sync Decoder can receive up to 8 video streams that will be synchronized to a user selected master stream and output as genlocked and synchronized 8 HD-SDI streams. The Decoder can receive streams from any of the Streambox Avenir line: Micro, Drone, Mini 4; or the Chroma 4K/2K/HD DCI Rackmount Encoder.

Streambox and Aircraft Traders Belgium Partner for UAV Streaming

By | Mobile Video Encoders, Press Release, Streambox Cloud Services, Streambox Platform Solutions | No Comments

February 22, 2017 Seattle and Belgium – Aircraft Traders Belgium will be integrating Streambox Avenir Drone Mobile Encoder and Embedded Modem Module into its Guardian Eye unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV). Avenir Drone will provide an onboard Internet connection and video encoder for Guardian Eye to stream live HD video and increase its autopilot capabilities beyond radio transmission range of the ground station.

Streambox Avenir Drone is the ideal mobile video encoder for Aircraft Traders Belgium’s Guardian Eye for its small form factor, low power usage, and high quality live video streaming over bonded cellular networks with an approximate 2 second latency. The integrated Avenir Drone for Aircraft Traders Belgium will include all the hardware and software of the retail version of Streambox’s Avenir Drone Encoder, but will be custom-fitted into the fuselage of Guardian Eye. Streambox’s retail Avenir Drone is built around a modular and stackable design concept for maximum portability and customization with battery, modem, and signal extender modules. The OEM version of Avenir Drone that Streambox will produce for Aircraft Traders Belgium will include the Embedded Modem Module and will not require a battery module, instead drawing from the Guardian Eye’s battery for power.


Aircraft Traders Belgium’s Guardian Eye has a fiberglass fuselage and carbon fiber wings (2.20 m fixed wingspan) with a 5 to 6 hours endurance using Lipo batteries and solar cell energy at a 25 knot cruise speed. The Guardian Eye can handle a 2.5 kg payload, has fully autonomous take-off and landing, and is sealed against rain and snow. Other advanced features include: target tracking, electronic stabilization, scene steering, real-time mosaicking, path track software, as well as video on the map.

With Avenir Drone, Guardian Eye can livestream high quality HD video filmed with the onboard camera. Video is encoded with Streambox’s highly efficient ACT-L3 codec and delivered to Streambox Cloud via the Embedded Modem Module’s bonded 3G/4G/LTE connections. Streambox Cloud transcodes and routes the video to social media, web/mobile devices, media players, and decoders.

Guardian Eye with Avenir Drone has a range of 15 to 20 km using the 2.4 MHz radio frequency or 3G/4G as coverage provides from the ground station. Streambox integrated a RJ-45 connector in Aviner Drone to interface with the Guardian Eye’s autopilot that will enable extended communication with the Ground Station through the 3G/4G/LTE connection that can modify the flight plan, change the route, or transmit any other instructions for the mission. That is, even if Guardian Eye flies out of radio range of the ground station, the autopilot will still be functional because of Avenir Drone.

Guardian Eye with Avenir Drone and Embedded Modem Module provides private, civil, and scientific customers the ability to collect data where manned aircraft missions would be too expensive or dangerous. They will be able to stream many hours of live video for electrical power transmission line inspections, anti-poaching, ariel crop monitoring, law enforcement, border patrol, surveillance, disaster relief, emergency services, and many other applications.
