Google’s hardware and software partners are notoriously buggy, but one of the company’s biggest and most prominent hardware partners is also among the most buggy.
Google announced its first hardware partnerships this week, and a new report says that one of its newest software partners, Skybox, is even worse.
Skybox, a startup that makes the Skybox video capture technology that Google has partnered with for years, is reportedly among the biggest, most buggy software out there.
Skybox was recently acquired by video company Epic, which was reportedly looking for a software solution to its camera software issues.
SkyBox is also one of only two video capture devices Google uses.
But the company says its new software will be much more secure and reliable than its hardware partners.
SkyBox’s software won’t allow video capture without hardware security hardware, the company said in a statement to TechCrunch.
Instead, the software will use a software security model, where video capture hardware is secured by hardware-based hardware encryption.
The hardware encryption key is shared with the video capture platform, but not with the platform itself, SkyBox said in the statement.
SkyBOX said that the company would be providing hardware security keys to the video capturing platform as a security measure.
SkyBOX said its new video capture system will not only encrypt video capture but also encrypting and signing the files.
For now, SkyBOX’s system will encrypt video captures with the same software security key that it uses for the hardware encryption keys.
Sky Box said it was working on a secure way to support secure video capture and encryption on all video capture equipment, and that its solution will be a “multi-protocol” system, which means the company will support both video capture in-camera and video capture using other hardware devices.
The company said its goal is to have a system that works with video capture on all cameras in the future.
Skyboxes software also won’t be able to recognize video capture that isn’t encrypted with the software security keys.
Sky Box said its solution won’t recognize files that are signed by other hardware keys.
For now, the technology will work with all hardware cameras that support video capture.
It’s unclear whether or not Skybox’s system is secure enough for video capture to be handled by all hardware video capture platforms.
Sky boxes video capture tech is being built by Epic, a video-streaming company that was acquired by Google last year.
Epic has been working with Google to secure video capturing in-house since Skybox acquired Skybox.
Epic said it is working on “an open source video capture protocol,” but declined to elaborate.
Sky’s video-capture solution will only work on devices with a hardware camera.
This means that any devices that are not SkyBox hardware will not be able, as the company has said it will, to access the video recording software.
Sky boxes cameras are expected to ship in the second half of 2019, though the company hasn’t yet indicated when they will ship.
