The meticulous research of the BBC’s R&D department has resulted in the development of the Stagebox IP Camera-Back. This technology can:
- Grab and sync all your feeds plus camera control and distribute them over IP to your
centralized post-production location
- Eliminate or reduce the size of your mobile production trucks and on-site costs
- Provide an alternative to fiber optics and wireless by using IP connections for live productions
- Edit on the fly with minimal ingest

Stagebox uses AVC-I 100 for higher quality for a given bitrate over alternatives such as JPEG-2000 and imports easily into existing editing systems. The Stagebox unit includes all the conversions necessary between industry standard video, audio, time code, sync and control signals and standard packet- based IP networks, providing full studio camera connectivity through a single Cat5e/6 cable. This has the potential to revolutionize studio and outside broadcast production methods by substituting low-cost network equipment for the dedicated infrastructure of the professional television studio or outside broadcast environment.
