Christ Fellowship Church Selects the Streambox SBT3-5100 ACT-L3T Video Transport SystemSolution of choice for multisite video distribution over a multicast IP network (February 14, 2006)
Streambox, Inc., one of the leading suppliers of real-time video solutions for broadcasting, satellite, and cable, today announced that Christ Fellowship Church, based in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., has deployed a number of Streambox SBT3-5100 ACT-L3T encoder/decoder solutions for distribution of real-time video of services to multiple worship venues over an IP multicast network.
Christ Fellowship Church wanted a solution that enabled multiple venues to view the same video source in real time while putting in place infrastructure that facilitated flawless transmission of Sunday services. The church tested a number of other systems and solutions, but selected the Streambox SBT3-5100 ACT-L3 system for its capability to deliver broadcast-quality video, high compression, forward error correction, and advanced network capabilities, all in one integrated device, over an IP multicast network to remote worship facilities. The Streambox solution also provides the flexibility of multicast mode, which enables simultaneous, bidirectional transmission of real-time video. Multicast mode allows Christ Fellowship Church to add additional worship sites to the network at a much lower bandwidth cost than with individual unicast streams between sites.
Christ Fellowship Church turned to Media Visions, a leading audio-video systems integrator, to select Streambox as a vendor. "Our first SBT3-5100 ACT-L3 encoder/decoder was up and running in a matter of minutes and we had the entire system streaming video across three sites within four hours," said Neil Morrison, vice president of sales and engineering at Media Visions. "I strongly recommend Streambox to other customers with similar requirements."
"The deployment at Christ Fellowship Church demonstrates our continued focus on customer requirements and commitment to delivering superior technology and value at a low cost," said Bob Hildeman, chairman and CEO of Streambox. "At the same time, the high-performance SBT3-5100 ACT-L3 system enables us to meet the unique needs of multisite churches."
"Streambox has played an important role in helping Christ Fellowship Church deliver broadcast-quality video over IP to multiple worship sites," said Steve Griffith, creative media pastor, Christ Fellowship Church. "The Streambox solution will make it simple to add new remote sites to the multicast network as we grow."
