We are very excited about this one! Streambox just announced Spectra- a virtual media encoder for remote post production. The key differentiator- Streambox Spectra provides a unique color-accurate video stream to editors and remote reviewers.
Streambox is offering a free trial with 100GB of cloud data on Streambox Cloud, so you can use Spectra to conduct actual remote reviews or collaborative workflows. That will give you about 28 hours of total use at 8 Mbit/s. Don’t miss the opportunity- download today.
Up to 4K resolution, HDR and 16 channels of audio!
Currently, cloud-based editors are limited to providing a low resolution, proxy version of the actual video and audio in real time. Spectra changes that and allows the creative to see and hear a fully accurate representation of their project. More importantly, Spectra can simultaneously deliver the same high-quality, low-latency stream to multiple remote collaborators anywhere in the world.
First, the editor or colorist can now view a live, color accurate video/audio stream in the edit suite (or even at home), which provides the same level of confidence they enjoy when working on traditional, in-house systems.
Second, Spectra dramatically expands the utility of cloud-based systems to include remote collaboration and reviews. Spectra can simultaneously deliver the same low-latency stream that the creative person sees to multiple remote collaborators anywhere in the world via Streambox Sessions and a Chroma decoder or HDR Software Media Player.
Spectra is also available as a plug-in for traditional desktop workstations. In this scenario Spectra converts your editor or other creative workstation into a device that is capable of conducting remote sessions without the need for an external hardware encoder or costly, dedicated fiber connections!
Experience Spectra’s full capabilities in a real world scenario. We provide the technology – you provide the creativity.
