Streambox, Inc. today announced that it was honored with a Government Video Salute award for product innovation at the GVExpo conference and exhibition, held in Washington, D.C., on Nov. 14 -16. The award, presented by the editors of NewBay Media‘s Government Video magazine, recognizes products that demonstrate particular appeal in the government video marketplace. Award-winning products will be featured in the December issue of Government Video.
Streambox earned the Salute Award for its new, fully rugged version of its industry-leading Portable Video Transport system typically used for mobile newsgathering, emergency response, and armed forces operations.

The new system, which features an extended battery life, is integrated into one super-compact, portable device supplied with a sturdy carry handle for easy transport. It gives the user ultimate flexibility in terms of mobility without sacrificing performance, reliability, and quality.
