SMPTE 2059 Timing Mode

Stagebox was one of the first products available to combine high quality video transport with IEEE1588 timing capability. Now we’ve added the SMPTE2059 mode, the standard adopted by the video broadcast market to replace analogue genlock and to provide accurate studio timing over IP infrastructure.

Built upon the IEEE1588 timing protocol, SMPTE2059 adds a number of […]

Ikegami Camera Control added to Stagebox

We’ve added support for the Ikegami Camera Control Protocol (ICCP) to Stagebox so now you can remotely rack an Ikegami camera over an IP link with accurate and low latency control. Stagebox seamlessly passes all commands from the OCP providing all the same functionality as a traditional wired connection.

We are pleased to add this popular […]

Stagebox and Typhoon powered by Xilinx FPGA technology

A key feature of Stagebox and Typhoon is their ability to adapt and grow with new requirements and changing standards. This flexibility derives from the fact that FPGA devices supplied by Xilinx Corporation is at the heart of Stagebox technology. The use of FPGAs allows us to define Stagebox funtionality through firmware and firmware upgrades, so […]

Stagebox adds SMPTE 2022 FEC for wireless links

With the ever increasing bandwidth available on modern networks, providers are able to guarantee links with very low jitter and practically no lost packets. On such networks Stagebox can be operated in low latency mode without the overhead required for jitter resilience and the increased bandwidth resulting from the redundancy in all FEC schemes.

Often though, Stagebox […]
