Streambox launches SBT3-9500 encoder

Streambox announced the launch of the portable Streambox SBT3-9500 video transport encoder, the latest in the company’s family of next-generation solutions for integrated HD/SD newsgathering and video transport. The encoder is designed to enable broadcasters to 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’s dual networking facilitates multiplexing and de-multiplexing 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.

Based on the ACT-L3 codec, the SBT3-9500 enables fast transmission and playout of high-quality HD and SD video streams over low-latency, low data rate IP networks. It encodes full-frame 1080i/720p HD video and NTSC/PAL SD video and audio. For live HD newsgathering, encoding rates between 512Kb/s and 6Mb/s are the norm. For live SD newsgathering, users will typically select encoding rates ranging from 256Kb/s to 4Mb/s.

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
