Streambox rolls out SBT-9500 HD/SD video transport encoder

Streambox has launched the portable SBT3-9500 video transport encoder, the company’s latest integrated HD/SD newsgathering and video transport.

With the SBT3-9500 encoder, broadcasters can get more HD and SD video back to the studio over a variety of low data-rate networks, including 3G, WiFi, WIMAX, the Internet and satellite networks.

The SBT3-9500 encoder’s dual networking facilitates multiplexing and demultiplexing of a single video stream over two lower-cost, lower data-rate IP networks instead of using more costly higher-bandwidth options. The video can be used for insertion into scheduled broadcasts or live-to-air shots, depending on broadcaster requirements.

Like all Streambox solutions, the SBT3-9500 is based on the company’s ACT-L3 codec, enabling fast transmission and play out of high-quality HD and SD video streams over low-latency, low data-rate IP networks. The solution encodes full-frame 1080i/720p HD video and NTSC/PAL SD video and audio.

Among the first to deploy the SBT3-9500 solution is Japanese broadcaster NHK. The deployment targets IP-based newsgathering from a number of locations around the world.

WMUR-TV Says FAA Drone Rules Preclude ENG
The FAA’s current rules and proposed ban on flight over people, requirement of visual line of sight and restriction on nighttime flying, effectively prohibit broadcasters from using UAS for newsgathering. ~ WMUR-TV General Manager Jeff Bartlett
