Next week on November 20th from 5:30 to 7:30 in the evening, Streambox will be doing a live, hands-on demo of streaming applicable for Digital Cinema and VFX production environments at the Deluxe/Encore facilities in Vancouver, British Columbia. Using the Chroma Encoder and Decoder system, attendees will be able to see streaming at a quality level that makes real-time, collaborative editing, color grading, VFX creation, and review possible using public Internet access from multiple locations.

Chroma supports up to 12-bit, 4:4:4 RGB video at HD, 2K DCI, UHD, and 4K DCI resolutions with a near lossless codec that integrates HDR standards including Dolby Vision. Interfaces include 12G/6G/3G/1.5G SDI as well as HDMI. Up to 16 channels of audio with 5.1/7.1 surround sound enables sessions with Dolby Atmos and DTS-X.

If you need picture perfect pixels for you feature, trailer, or television production, Streambox has the right solution.

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.
