NEW 4:4:4 Color Support for Streambox iOS Media Player

By | Broadcast, Cloud, Apps & Software, Post Production | No Comments

Streambox demonstrates iOS Media Player beta with 4:4:4 color support for Post Production, Broadcast and streaming applications requiring high quality low latency video. Soon to be released iOS Media Player automatically pulls video from the Cloud or direct from any Streambox encoder.

Also known as the iOS NODE, the Media Player is a software ACT-L3 decoder for iPad and iPhone receiving IP video streams from Streambox encoders or from Streambox Cloud services. The NODE receives video data over any IP network and is well suited for point-to-point streaming or streams being pushed (routed to) or pulled from Streambox Cloud Services. The iOS NODE supports up to 10 programmable channels.

The ability to stream video to 10 separate channels allows you to receive direct streaming over more than one port. Channels can pull from Streambox Cloud services or from a Streambox Enterprise Server, and other channels can display multicast streams. Each channel can be assigned a unique name.

Selecting, deleting and adding a channel is accomplished with the easy user interface. To select a channel, simply press the desired channel from the list. To add a new channel, press the plus ‘+’ sign in the upper right corner – this will open the Edit Channel page. See sections below for how to fill in the channel properties. To edit channel properties, select a channel from the list, then press the greater-than sign ‘>’ icon.

Alan Latteri of Instinctual and His Experience with Streambox

By | 2K Rackmount, Cloud, Apps & Software, Post Production, Streambox Platform Solutions, Streambox Rackmounts, Success Stories, Video Transport | No Comments

Alan Latteri, partner at Instinctual, a post production service firm, has extensive experience providing professional finishing services for film studios.

Alan was looking for a system that met Instinctual’s current and upcoming needs – the Streambox Modular Rackmount with 2K/4K format met their criteria:
· Encrypted Video Streaming security of intellectual property
· Video latency less than a second
· Video capture and stream at 2k/4k at 80Mbsp
· Played out as high quality 10-bit video without video loss over IP networks for remote cinematic color grading and edit sessions
· Future-proof with upgrade path for 2k stereo video and support for higher color profile — 12-bit 444 color

Extensive side-by-side live video sessions were conducted over an IP network using Streambox Modular units and a competing JPEG 2000 system between the Instinctual color theater and the Sony Pictures theater. A real-time performance was measured for latency and video playout to assess video and color quality.

Alan talks about his experience with Streambox. Instinctual has been using the newest product from Streambox, the Modular Rackmount with 2K & 4K which has definitely met their current and future needs. Alan and his team were most impressed with the “great turnaround” and “personal touch” from Streambox and its customer service.

Instinctual’s primary need was the ability to collaborate using secure live video with Sony Pictures from remote campuses. With this ability, Alan Latteri and his team were able to make edits and color corrections in real-time. This ability saved time and money for both companies and decreased time spent on projects.

Overall Alan and his team were pleased with the Modular Rackmount’s performance and small design. “It just works,” says Alan “it’s there when we need it, and we press go.” Compared to other company’s products, the Streambox Modular Rackmount “setup was quick,” the “required bandwidth was less,” the “video quality was excellent,” and “the direct response to customers feedbacks and issues is amazing” says Alan “way more valuable than putting it in some support ticket.”

The price of the Streambox Modular Rackmount with 2K was extremely competitive. “The price point made it compelling enough to take a chance” says Alan “and we are glad we did, we are benefiting from that.”

Streambox Cloud was another key benefit Alan saw with using Streambox. The web interface and the ability to preview live video using the Cloud was a great addition for Alan and his team when collaborating in real-time.
