The software encoder has been successfully deployed for several years and is now available for general release. It’s typically used for live and file-based newsgathering and video acquisition over low-data-rate IP networks.

Making its international debut at IBC is the Streambox mobile software encoder, for streaming breaking news and events via broadband. It uses Streambox’s proprietary compression technologies, allowing delivery of content to the newsroom while at the same time powering video portals and social networking sites.

The integrated Streambox solution for file-based video acquisition provides enhanced management of field-generated video files for on-demand or scheduled play out of a variety of video formats including raw ACT-L3 and QuickTime-wrapped ACT-L3 files. The solution comprises the Streambox store-and-forward server, store-and-forward client, and media station.

The latest rackmount HD video transport system from Streambox, the SBT3-9200, offers significant enhancements and provides full-frame 1080i/720p HD broadcast video and audio over IP-based networks from 512 Kbps to 30 Mbps.

For newsgathering and broadcast video, Streambox is showing the integrated SBT3-9500 HD/SD encoder. It enables live and file-based newsgathering, video transport and acquisition in HD and SD in a lightweight and compact chassis.

Streambox will be at Stand 7.J40.
