Streambox Media Players (SMP) provide a welcome solution to the logistical nightmare of providing your remote collaborators with a playback device - our free streaming media players run on popular platforms they already own!

Viewing professional media content in a browser may be convenient and OK for some applications, if you can accept questionable color and gamma. Our SMPs are just as convenient, but accept and transcode your original material in its native resolution and colorspace. Your creative work deserves nothing less!
