Streambox at IBC 2019

At IBC 2019, Streambox is showing its high-performance media streaming solutions to picture-perfect pixels for various applications including broadcasting and post-production. Streambox can be found in the Content Everywhere Area - Booth B26.

Streambox Chroma and Chroma X advanced encoder/decoder systems are ideal for critical 4K, UHD, and HD contribution. Native support for 12-bit 4:4:4 RGB color makes them a perfect match for Dolby Vision®, HDR-10, and HDR10+ workflows. 16-channel uncompressed audio also makes Chroma suitable for projects incorporating Dolby ATMOS. Chroma can provide digital video metadata drop off from a remote location to a Dolby CMU or offers HDMI tunneling directly to digital video monitors. This functionality makes Chroma the only live review solution in the industry that addresses the need for both HDR/Dolby Vision video and Dolby ATMOS. With support for up to 16 audio channels, Chroma is the right fit for productions with Dolby ATMOS and integration with audio applications such as Avid Pro Tools.

In 2019, Streambox released the new Annotations feature in Streambox Chroma, which provides a flexible method for group review of video content. Mark-ups can be made on images in real-time so multiple connected stakeholders can provide feedback via a web interface working on the same project. Annotations is a valuable tool for colorists, editors, and other production staff.

The Streambox Avenir line of portable and mobile encoders deliver reliable HD video streaming with bonded connectivity over various types of networks. Other Streambox solutions include Streambox Cloud Services for global streaming transport, and software encoders, players, encryption, and streaming servers. Mobile Media Player has been recently released as an application supporting ten programmable streaming HD video channels. Mobile Media Player is designed to integrate with other Streambox components for cost-effective viewing of high-quality video on iPads and iPhones in real-time. The player is designed to automatically "pull" live video from Streambox Cloud Services, Streambox Enterprise Server, or directly point-to-point from various Streambox encoders such as Chroma for live playout.
