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.

Streambox will be attending SMPTE 2017 Annual Technical Conference and Exhibition. Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE) will be taking place in Hollywood, CA October 23rd-26th. The event was first introduced in 1916, and has since then been awarded several Oscar and Emmy awards for its work pushing forward the advancement of moving-imagery engineering. The “Society” is molding the common practices and providing education for the film industry as it evolves further into IT- and IP-based workflows.

HD Rackmount Upgrades

Streambox intends to help advance the common standards and practices of the film industry with their latest products and technology. The newest product from Streambox, the Modular Rackmount will be presented at the SMPTE conference. By providing a secure (encrypted), low-latency, video transport, the modular rackmount is designed for reliable video streaming and collaboration over IP networks. The modular rackmount is designed for upgrade to 2K, 4K, 2K Stereo, 12G, 4:4:4 color, and 4-8 Channel Audio. With secure end-to-end video encryption and its ease of use, the modular, future-proof rackmount should create buzz at SMPTE.

2K Encoder & Decoder

New 2K-HD Encoder and Decoder

By | Post Production, Press Release | No Comments

Streambox is proud to announce its newest product, the 2K-HD Encoder and Decoder, designed for post production collaboration. The 2K-HD encoder and decoder system extends on widely deployed ACT-L3 HD encoders at many leading film studios, post production facilities, and advertising agencies. The 2K-HD  provides secure, real-time, remote, collaborative workflows for post production professionals by providing low latency HD and 2K video over public and private IP networks. Producers, engineers, and colorists can now deliver real-time services with a bottom line advantage for color correction, remote editorial, and final review. The 2K-HD encoder and decoder stands out because of its high video quality over low bandwidth IP, ease of use, and security. Streambox is offering a savings of $8,835 off of pair of 2K-HD Encoders through May 31, 2017.

Video Quality

The Streambox 2K-HD Encoder and Decoder sends high-quality, color accurate, 10-bit video over IP networks with bitrates up to 75 Mbps (the compression sweet spots for remote color grading and edit reviews is between 10 Mbps – 30 Mbps). The 2K-HD Encoder and Decoder uses the new ACT-L3 AP 2017 compression and Low Delay Multi-Path protocol (LDMP) for reliable transport over IP networks.

Ease of Use

The Streambox 2K-HD Encoder and Decoder offers a 1-2 second, end-to-end, stream latency for real-time collaboration. The encoder and decoder can be controlled both remotely, ideal for a non-technical team member to view content without any setup, or locally, ideal for technical team members that want full control over equipment. The 2K-HD Encoder and Decoder accommodates secure one-to-one collaboration workflows (e.g., technical team members collaborating remotely) and secure one-to-many review and approval workflows (e.g., executive review by the entire team).

Security

The Streambox 2K-HD Encoder and Decoder comes standard with end-to-end AES 128-bit encryption for secure video content transport (with AES 192-bit and 256-bit encryption available upon request). Streambox encryption does not increase latency and security is further augmented by the New ACT-L3 AP 2017 proprietary compression codec.

Streambox Technology

Advanced Streaming Codec

All Streambox products are powered by the proprietary codec, Advanced Compression Technology – Level 3 (ACT-L3). Streambox ACT-L3 compression allows for fast encoding with low latency and is optimized for video transmission over any IP connection. ACT-L3 is capable of compressing high motion, complex video at low data rates with the advanced motion search feature.

Streambox LDMP Technology

All Streambox products come equipped with Streambox exclusive Low Delay Multi-Path technology (LDMP). Streambox LDMP protocol allows low latency adaptive bitrate streaming on public and private networks. Streambox encoders will automatically select the best possible bandwidth, latency, and resolution over multiple IP networks, thus allowing Streambox products to gracefully handle network bandwidth fluctuations and dropouts, which are often seen over public or shared network environments.

Key Benefits:

  • New Streambox ACT-L3 AP 2017 proprietary codec
  • LDMP reliable transport over public and private IP networks
  • 1-2 second end-to-end latency over public networks
  • No fiber or MPLS required
  • Secure end-to-end encryption to protect content
  • One-to-one or one-to-many encrypted collaboration via private network or Streambox Cloud
  • Playout on Software Media Player
