Streambox Introduces SBT3-7500 Real-Time Encoder at IBC2006
At IBC, Streambox Inc. will release its SBT3-7500 encoder, a new generation of the company's video transport solutions for mobile newsgathering over IP or satellite. The new encoder is a full-featured, plug-and-connect, real-time video transport system.

The SBT3-7500 system is built on the Streambox ACT-L3 codec and advanced proprietary video compression technology used by broadcasters, satellite, and cable operators worldwide. The company said the new encoder delivers MPEG-2 video quality at a 75 percent lower data rate and provides up to 50 percent better efficiency than MPEG-4 systems.

The Streambox SBT3-7500 weighs five pounds and measures just 2.5 inches high, 12 inches wide, and 13 inches deep offers a compact design that makes the SBT3-7500 a solution for mobile newsgathering, whether used in a news truck or for airborne/seaborne surveillance and video transport. The system supports 4:2:0 and 4:2:2 color profiles.

"The SBT3-7500 offers broadcasters and their news departments a whole new level of flexibility and portability, enabling crews to gather and transmit real-time broadcast video cost-effectively over IP and satellite from the world's hot spots at low data rates and using very little power," said Bob Hildeman, chairman and CEO at Streambox. "With its very small form factor and easy setup, the SBT3-7500 makes it possible to deliver breaking news faster, cheaper, and at a higher quality than ever before, even from the most challenging locations."

Streambox will be in Stand 4.354.
