Limited edition
We've secured parts for a small production run. We're unsure if and when further batches will be made, so sales are limited to 1 unit per buyer and 1 unit per shipping address. Orders of more than 1 unit will be cancelled and refunded.

Why choose BELABOX BEE over a DIY BELABOX setup?
  • ready to use out of the box, no tinkering involved
  • internal capture card, no more errors caused by capture cards being picky about USB extension cables
  • use up to 4 USB modems, 1 WiFI connection and 1 Ethernet connection out of the box, without having to resort to powered USB hubs
  • high input voltage tolerance, no more undervoltage warnings
  • HDMI input signal detection, if the camera turns off or the cable disconnects, the stream will go to BRB rather than showing a black video
  • about 10% lower power usage than using a DIY Jetson Nano devkit setup* - so longer battery life
  • Video encoding: 500 - 12,000 Kbps H265, up to 1080p60
  • Audio encoding: Opus or AAC
  • HDMI input resolutions: 1920x1080, 1680x1050, 1600x1200, 1600x900, 1440x900, 1280x1024, 1280x960, 1280x800, 1280x720, 1024x768, 800x600
  • Network protocol: SRTLA for bonding multiple connections between the encoder and the cloud relays, SRT from the cloud relays to OBS / other streaming software
  • Power input: 5.5mm barrel jack, 9-15V, min 1A (1.5-2.5A if powering USB devices). 15V USB-C PD/QC trigger cable included.
  • Power usage (1080p60 HDMI signal input, 8000 Kbps bitrate, streaming over Ethernet, WiFi disconnected, no USB devices, approximate values):
    • 1080p60: 6.5 watts
    • 1080p30: 6.0 watts
