Streambox introduced Streambox SBT3-5200 video transport system, which the company designed specifically for the broadcast industry, at NAB2007.
The SBT3-5200 video transport system enables broadcasters to transmit full-motion, full-frame interlaced video and audio over IP-based networks. With a compact 1RU profile, the SBT3-5200 is well suited for live news broadcasts, distribution to cable headends and other video delivery applications.
