Streambox released its hybrid Streambox SBT3-9500 HD/SD encoder for IP-based newsgathering and video transport at the NAB Show.
The solution enables broadcasters to do live and file-based newsgathering, video transport and acquisition in HD and SD. The SBT3-9500 is integrated into one lightweight, portable solution for encoding mission-critical video over low-cost IP networks, such as 3G, WiFi, WiMAX and the Internet.
The versatile HD/SD encoder is typically deployed to field crews for low data rate newsgathering. It features 2.5 hours of battery life and can also run on a car battery. The encoder works with the breadth of Streambox video management and playout systems.
