Whether you’re streaming live video in situ or planning complex OB in many locations, Stagebox delivers.
Stagebox is a compact unit that clips onto the back of a professional video camera using a standard (V-lock) connector. Stagebox combines all of the camera interfaces – high-definition digital video (SDI), audio and camera control – into a single, Ethernet-compliant (Cat5 or Cat6) network connection. Uniquely, it also handles generator locking (Genlock), whereby a reference signal synchronizes the video signal from multiple cameras.
Cameras no longer need to be manned; they can be controlled from, and their outputs fed to, anywhere with a decent internet connection. In some circumstances, outside broadcast vans can be eliminated and within large studio complexes there’s no need to have staff at every camera location.
