New Product Options

Pull Stream (P2P) Sessions for Encoder - encoders can generate a Session ID which will create a single, direct point-to-point stream to a Streambox Decoder, without the usual need to configure a firewall.

Full-Duplex Streaming - Chroma Encoders can be configured to allow both Encoder and Decoder software to run simultaneously, allowing simultaneous sending and receiving.

Dual-channel encoding - create two Encoder output channels for a single video source and apply different quality settings and destinations.

Multi Channel encoding (multiple inputs) - create 2 or more Encoder outputs for each input. (Number of channels is limited by input hardware; resolution of channels may be limited by hardware as well.)

Multi Channel decoding - Creates 2 or more Decoder channels to allow the same hardware to receive and output multiple streams. (Number of channels is limited by output hardware.)

Sync Decoder Manager - streams arriving at a Multi Channel Decoder can be locked in sync.

In addition to the all of the above, the new release includes a number of general improvements, better and more efficient codecs and enhanced security. See the details list for more information or get in touch with one of our Sales & Support Specialists using the handy form below.
