Vizada Partnership Extends Video Output

Streambox has announced that it has formed a partnership with Vizada, the independent provider of mobile satellite communications services, to extend the Streambox Live IP-based video contribution service to the Vizada network.
It boasts more than 400 service providers and their customers who can now download the Streambox Live encoding software free of charge to their laptops, field news crews and other organizations using Vizada services and can now transmit live or file-based video via mobile satellite terminals such as Inmarsat BGAN, FleetBroadband, or Thuraya IP.
"Increasingly, many different types of organizations need the ability to capture and send video from remote locations that can't be reached by mobile satellite vehicles, or areas lacking in infrastructure or high-bandwidth networking services.
"A few examples might be news crews covering breaking news from disaster areas, emergency response crews needing to enhance their communications capabilities, or military command and control units," said Bob Hildeman, Chairman of Streambox.
"Through our new partnership with Vizada, Streambox Live is the first application of its kind to give satellite customers a low-cost and highly flexible means of transmitting high-quality video from any point on the globe, using wireless devices such as laptops and mobile phones."
Through the Streambox/Vizada partnership, all video transmitted by Streambox Live users will be automatically downlinked to the Streambox Live Server installed at Vizada's downlink data centre in Amsterdam.
Users will be able to set up an account, browse the Streambox Live Server and select videos to manage, route, and broadcast live. The Streambox Live Server adds forward error correction to the video stream immediately after it is downlinked from the satellite, and then transmits the video to the customer's premise with added packet redundancy and recovery for smooth video play out with minimal latency and the highest-possible picture quality. Streambox Live will be offered by Vizada's network of service-provider partners as part of a robust Inmarsat BGAN or Thuraya IP bundle.
"We are pleased to partner once again with Streambox and build on the success of the Advanced Distribution Server to offer the new Streambox Live capability, said Larry Paul, Vice President of Business Development and portfolio management at Vizada.
"Bundled with Inmarsat BGAN and Thuraya IP services, Streambox Live offers Vizada clients high-quality, cost-efficient live video transmission from any remote location."
