Streambox Adds Verizon 4G Capabilities1/04/2011 4:06 PM Eastern
In an important development for the delivery of high definition video from the field, Streambox has upgraded its Hybrid HD/SD Software Encoder so that it is now capable of transporting HD video with only one cellular modem using Verizon's new 4G LTE Mobile Broadband network.
Using the higher bandwidth offered by Verizon's 4G network, which was launched in 38 cities in December, will make it easier for local broadcasters to transmit high def video back from the field.
Streambox Hybrid HD/SD encoder is able to stream live or stored broadcast-quality standard definition video at 1.5 to 2 Megabits per second, and breaking news quality HD video at 2 to 5 Mbps.
In the near future, Streambox is also planning to release a new product that will take advantage of 4G networks.
