LOS ANGELES, April 24, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- StreamCaster 4K-HEVC, manufactured by Silvus Technologies, is a recipient of the NewBay Best of Show Award, presented at the 2018 NAB Show by TV Technology.
NewBay's Best of Show Awards are evaluated by a panel of engineers and industry experts, and are selected based on innovation, feature set, cost efficiency and performance in serving the industry.

The Streamcaster 4K-HEVC is a unique wireless camera system combining low latency HEVC 4K/UHD/HDR encoding and decoding with Silvus Technologies' unique StreamCaster wireless mesh technology, providing the operator with an unmatched set of capabilities and return-on-investment.
