Alan Latteri of Instinctual and His Experience with Streambox

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.

This week Totsu International, a Streambox partner, is taking part in the Broadcast Equipment Exhibition, the original name of Inter BEE. The Inter BEE exhibition first started in 1965 and has remained an annual event in Japan. This year Streambox is showcasing its newest products, including the new HD Rackmount and 2K Rackmount, as well as some of their popular products like the AVENIR Micro and 4K Rackmount.

Streambox‘s HD Rackmount provides secure, real-time, remote, collaborative workflows for broadcasters, enterprises and post production professionals. By providing low-latency, the rackmount is designed for reliable video streaming and collaboration over IP networks. With secure video encryption, studios are able to edit video in real-time with the rackmount which is a huge advantage for remote collaboration from any location.

The 2K Rackmount provides secure and remote color grading for post production professionals with an easy 30 Minute Networking Setup and Use for Playout Management. Streambox has introduced a new feature called an “upgrade path” for both 2K and HD rackmounts. For 2K rackmounts you are able to upgrade to 4K, 4K with 12G, 444 Color and 2K Stereo Video. The upgrade path works to keep Streambox products “future proof”, with the ability to upgrade to the newest hardware and software with ease, making it remarkably cost effective.

A cloud-based video management system, the Streambox Cloud, is also a featured service at the event. The Cloud is able to push or pull live streams on either side of a firewall and archive live video for later use. All Streambox products are compatible with Streambox Cloud, including the AVENIR Micro. The Micro is a mobile video encoder that fits in the palm of your hand and can send live video straight to the Cloud.

By | Enterprise Server, Streambox Platform Solutions, Streambox Rackmounts | No Comments

By now many of you have heard of the “Ransomware” malware threat in the news targeting computers around the world running Microsoft Windows OS. We would like to make you aware that some Streambox Encoders, Decoders, and Servers are using versions of Microsoft Windows (and Windows Embedded) Operating Systems that are vulnerable to the WannaCrypt (or WannaCry) ransomware, which encrypts user files and requires payment for decryption.

Microsoft has published a description of the ransomware and their response. Windows 7 (and later) OS and Windows Server 2008 (and later) OS are protected as long as they have updates current as of March 2017.

To prevent new infection, please click here for patches for vulnerable Windows operating systems utilized by Streambox. Additionally, enabling port filtering in the Network Adapter to block port 445 TCP should block the infection.

If your Streambox equipment has been infected, first, disconnect it from your local network then go here for options.
