Live Review & Monitoring with Streambox Media Player

The Mobile Media Player iOS-based app for iPad and iPhones has recently been released and is available in the Apple store at no charge.

Using the Media Player on iPad/iPhone delivers color-accurate video playout for secure post-production live reviews, broadcast, and monitoring applications wherever you have a wireless connection. The app supports programmable video channels and is integrated with Streambox Cloud, including Sessions-based usage for easy set-up and workflows. This provides automated video playout from Streambox Cloud by simply inputting a six-digit Sessions ID, provided by the Session host, into Streambox Mobile Media Player.

iOS-based devices are well known for their display quality, so media professionals benefit from a highly accurate visual experience even of these smaller form factor devices. For example, the iPad Pro series supports screen resolutions greater than HD and wider color space.

In fact, the DisplayMate site enthusiastically confirms, "With this degree of picture quality and accuracy, the iPad is now qualified for many interesting professional-level applications."

Streambox Mobile Media Player is an HD/HDR player for IP video streams arriving from Streambox encoders or from Streambox Cloud Services Services. The Media Player is well suited for streams being pushed or pulled from Streambox Cloud Services. The Mobile Media Player is being used by media content providers (e.g., news services) to remotely review live streams, and by post-production services for collaborative workflows with colorists, editors, and media producers for on-site or on-location monitoring. Streambox Sessions is a new valuable collaborative tool that is featured on the Mobile Media Player. It provides simple and cost-effective direct connections for media professionals who require remote, real-time collaboration of high-quality, color-rich, content across multiple locations.
