Streambox to unveil two new video transport solutions

Streambox will unveil two new video transport solutions for mobile satellite newsgathering at IBC2006. First, the SBT3-7500 system is built on Streambox’s ACT-L3 codec and proprietary video-compression technology. The encoder solution is integrated in one compact, portable device that features a low-power requirement. This gives the user more flexibility in terms of mobility without sacrificing broadcast-quality video. The SBT3-7500 system matches MPEG-2 video quality at a 75 percent lower data rate, and it is up to 50 percent more efficient than MPEG-4.

The SBT3-7400 ACT-L3 is a bidirectional, low-latency encoding and decoding conferencing solution that utilizes Streambox’s ACT-L3 codec with advanced IP networking capabilities. In addition to its 24/7 plug-and-connect real-time transport capabilities, the full duplex encoder/decoder system enables the user to send and receive video and audio simultaneously.
