New Streambox HD/SD encoder offers newsgathering, broadcast, post solutions

December 12, 2008

Streambox has launched the Streambox SBT3-9200 HD/SD video transport encoder for HD/SD newsgathering, broadcasting and video post production.

The SBT3-9200 can operate in HD or SD mode, enabling the user to capture, transmit and play out live and file-based video. The encoder provides 1080i, 720p and 1080psf HD video at data rates from 256Kb/s to 30Mb/s and SD video from 64Kb/s to 15Mb/s.

Each SBT3-9200 encoder is outfitted with dual GigE ports, providing multiplex/demultiplex configurations for video-stream redundancy. The second Ethernet port may be designated as a management port for instant access.

The SBT3-9200 can output HD and downconverted SD broadcast video simultaneously from a single HD source, and it offers support for both digital and analog HD input/output formats. Built on Streambox's ACT-L3 codec, the SBT3-9200 is equipped with robust forward error correction.
