New 8-Channel Synchronized Decoder at 2018 Winter Olympics
Streambox, working with a major broadcaster, is introducing its new 8-Channel Synchronized Decoder at this year's Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea. Streambox provides secure and bonded, IP video transport hardware, software, and cloud services to broadcasters, enterprises, movie & post-production studios, and government video providers throughout the world.
The Streambox 8-Channel Synchronized Decoder can receive up to 8 video streams that will be synchronized to a user-selected master stream and output as genlocked and synchronized 8 HD-SDI streams.
"This allows closeups and longshots to remain in sync with audio even if one stream has a half-second delay and another stream has a full-second delay. This is a whole new approach to remote IP audio-video synchronization and multi-camera live production," explained Alex Telitsine, CTO at Streambox.
"With broadband IP connectivity that is widely available, broadcasters and live event productions can stream events from multiple camera locations. The new multi-Channel Synchronized Decoders enable live onsite production management with less equipment, thus reducing costs and improving efficiency," said Dave Bolnick, Project Manager of Research and Development at Streambox.
The Streambox 8-Channel Synchronized Decoder can receive streams from any of the Streambox Avenir line; Micro, Drone, Mini; or it's Modular 4K/2K/HD DCI Rackmount Encoder. Streambox encoders also provide AES-encrypted secure video at low latency over bonded LDMP transport.
