World-class integration delivering high quality video acquisition, production and distribution

Seattle, WA – March 22nd , 2016 – Streambox®, an industry leading pioneer delivering unique video streaming solutions, today announced its new Streambox® Add-On for NewTek™ TriCaster®. This new offering integrates a full featured multi-camera, multi-resource, production system with world-class streaming video technology, offering an unprecedented user experience.

With this add-on Streambox users can now directly stream live HD/SD video at resolutions up to 1080p directly from Streambox Encoders into a TriCaster multi-camera video production system. Users have the flexibility of three modes to acquire multiple, ACT-L3, low latency video streams straight from Streambox Encoders, Streambox Cloud servers, or via a local multicast. This opportunity for enhanced production workflows provides high quality video acquisition, and cost effective live video production from mobile cameras, such as moving cars, helicopters, UAVs, boats or wearable cameras for example, all with the free Streambox Add-on for TriCaster.

“The Streambox Add-on for TriCaster gives us capabilities we’ve never had before. Previously a dedicated Streambox decoder and a dedicated input into TriCaster was required for each feed.  Now we have the ability to select from multiple Streambox sources right inside the TriCaster interface without needing separate decoders or additional TriCaster inputs.” – Jonathan Crowe, Huntsville.

Key features of the add-on include:

  •  Stream from any Streambox Encoder including Avenir Micro
  •  Stream live multi-cam productions from many locations
  •  Receive live video source over 3G/4G/WiFi/Ethernet networks
  •  Live stream integrated into TriCaster interface as a video source
  •  Use low-cost Streambox Cloud with free encoder for video source
  •  Seamlessly works with all Streambox Encoder products – Avenir Micro, Drone, Mini 3 & 3c, mobile apps, rack mounts and more.

“Streambox will be spotlighting its new relationship with NewTek, with an integration of its Avenir Micro with TriCaster,” says Bob Hildeman, Streambox co-founder and CEO. “Now Streambox video will appear as a video/camera source for production [on the TriCaster production system],” he says.

“As one of the newest members of the NewTek Developer Network, Streambox technology will be a tremendous benefit to current and future TriCaster customers looking to distribute their network style content over 3G, 4G, Wi-Fi, Ethernet and Internet networks,” said Michael Kornet, executive vice president of Business Development for NewTek. “The integration is accessed right from the TriCaster interface, and gives Streambox customers a seamless way to expand and enhance their production quality with a TriCaster.”

The integration expands on the Streambox mobile video everywhere vision by relying on IP transport and the cloud to bridge a gap of hundreds, or even thousands, of miles that separate a remote venue where cameras cover an event from a centralized production control room.

“Our TriCaster plug-in will allow broadcasters to send video anywhere across the globe over 3G, 4G, Wi-Fi, Ethernet and Internet networks. So this will widen their contribution as well as near close-area contribution,” Hildeman says.
