Streambox has released the small form factor Streambox SBT3-9500 HD/SD encoder. The unit enables broadcasters to do live and file-based newsgathering, video transport, and acquisition in HD and SD. The SBT3-9500 is integrated into one lightweight and portable solution, making it ideal for encoding mission critical video over low-cost, low data rate IP networks such as 3G, WiFi, WIMAX, and the Internet.
The HD/SD encoder is typically deployed to field crews for low data rate newsgathering. It features two-and-a-half hours of battery life, and it can also run on a car battery. The encoder works seamlessly with the breadth of Streambox’s video management and playout systems.
