StreamBox is built on top of the tried and tested Public-i Connect platform. It is composed of 3 main components:

  • Public customisable website (hosted on Amazon cloud) allows the non participating public to see and subscribe to the list of meetings and watch the meetings on live or archive (for up to 1 year).
  • Admin area to the public website. Book meetings or sync them from a 3rd party website (Modern Gov, CMIS). Administer the site and check viewership or transcriptions of the meetings.
  • PC software runs on the StreamBox hardware in kiosk mode for simplicity. Select the booked meeting, start it and control the agenda and the hybrid view for the public. When finished, stop the meeting and publish it in 1 click. Get access to live support via chat. The PC runs on Windows 11 Pro and also includes Eset Endpoint antivirus.

Hybrid mode allows remote participation in a meeting and the webcast will capture both sides. Hybrid mode is compatible with any video conferencing software (Teams, Zoom, Webex etc…) including Public-i Connect Remote. A laptop/PC with USB3, HDMI ports and a sufficient internet connection is required.
The remote audio is played on the Owl’s speakers and not on the external screen to avoid audio feedback. The audio level in the room is adjustable on the Owl’s volume buttons. A mute button is also available for privacy.
