Streambox Live Pro set for IBC showcase2 September 2011
Streambox Live Pro is a cloud-based video contribution service which, says IBC exhibitor Streambox, will give users the ability to take advantage of uncapped bandwidth, full D1 resolution and Advanced Audio Coding (AAC), writes Ian McMurray.
With emerging 4G cellular networks, Streambox Live Pro Encoder will utilise more available bandwidth on cellular networks to send professional quality video. Streambox Live Pro enables broadcasters to enhance breaking news stories with ad-hoc broadcasting content supplied by a variety of contributors including video journalists and stringers.
At the front end, the cornerstone of this scalable software-based solution is the Streambox Live Pro Encoder, which will be made available for download on laptops and desktops to contributors affiliated with broadcast groups and local television stations. Streambox Live Pro is a scalable service that allows broadcasters to capture video from their town, country or anywhere around the world.
At the back end, broadcasters subscribing to the Streambox Live Pro service are able to manage, track and view unlimited amounts of video uploads from contributors. The broadcaster can also manage digital rights for video contributions and search for relevant video clips using metadata information.
