SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwired - Apr 4, 2013) - Streambox, Inc. today announced the new release of Streambox Live, a cloud-based video sharing service for enterprises that allows users with iPhones or iPads to easily initiate immediate sharing of live video streams or video files. There are two different ways to share video; directly from an iPhone/iPad or by sharing video from any Streambox encoder using the Streambox Live Service.
Today's new StreamboxME Pro app release for iOS will now allow users to share live and file-based video directly from the app via email. Users have no additional steps to compress or upload the video. Initiating a shared stream is easy by selecting the "share" button on the StreamboxME Pro capture interface and then selecting intended recipients from their email address book. The app is now available for download from the Apple store. Existing users will need to update their version of the app through the store.
On the receiving end the video is accessed by a link in an email. The video can be played on desktop systems with the free Streambox Media Player (available for download from the Streambox website). Low latency around 2 seconds end-to-end is achieved depending on network conditions. The StreamboxME Pro app provides up to 2Mbps bonded cellular and Wi-Fi bandwidth, at resolutions of 720x400 and 16:9. All video is archived and the shared stream can be accessed in real time or as a time-shift feed.
The app includes some additional new features such as record and upload of video files, embedded GPS and meta-data logging. It comes in two versions: free or paid. The free option is available with a subscription to the Streambox Live Service. The paid option covers a license to use the app with the Enterprise Server infrastructure. First time users of the app receive 385 MB credit (or 30-days, whichever comes first) on Streambox Live to start sharing immediately.
