Streambox Live for iPhone is perfect for Mobile News Shooters

Don’t ask me for details about this one. I came across Streambox Live as I was running around, franticly looking for a convention center bathroom. That said, this app looks pretty nifty. From what I can tell, Streambox is a well known content management system for news organizations.  It looked like they had servers, capture cards, wireless thingys, etc.  I saw lots of confusing diagrams that suggested their systems control the collection and distribution of video in a wide variety of ways.

ShowBiz Expo ’10 – The Cube kicks Mountains of Ass

Super Awesomeness, thy name is CUBE! This is without a doubt the niftiest thing I’ve seen in a while. The Cube by Teradek is a real-time, camera-mounted video streaming encoder. In other words, it takes video from your camera, encodes it into h.264 video, then streams it over a wireless network to your laptop. The video is then immediately available for viewing via your iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad running the Air Video app.  That means instant wireless dailies! SICK!

A while back, we told you about Parrot’s AR Drone Quadracopter, an iPhone controlled flying thing-a-ma-bob. One of its coolest features was the ability to wirelessly transmit video from two onboard cameras directly to the controlling iPhone.  In other words, it’s a hovercam! We speculated that under the right circumstances this amazing gizmo could be used to fly in, over and through just about any set or location in order to get relatively inexpensive aerial footage.

One Filmmaker’s version of a carphone.

Just because you can tape your iPhone to a remote-controlled toy car, and drive it off concrete ledges, doesn’t mean you should. While this footage isn’t particularly good looking, it is an excellent example of how a filmmaker can utilize the iPhone’s diminutive size for capturing interesting shots. It’s also an excellent example of how a filmmaker can completely destroy their iPhone.
