PlayBox Preps for IBC 2018

PlayBox Technology will demonstrate fully integrated server/cloud broadcasting solutions at IBC 2018.

PlayBox Technology announced the central theme of the company's IBC exhibit will be the latest versions of the server-based Neo and cloud-based CloudAir playout systems and the ease with which these can be combined into a single system.

The PlayBox stand will demonstrate the strengths of Neo and CloudAir as standalone solutions, with emphasis on the versatility possible when combining the two into a fully integrated server/cloud system. Individually or together, they are very easy to operate. AirBox Neo solutions are scalable for any size of customer operation, from a single playout server to a multi channel turnkey broadcast centre. Shows, spots and promos can be uploaded and scheduled for fully automated playout while retaining the freedom to insert live content after any currently-playing item.

The flagship AirBox Neo broadcast playout server is fully transmission agnostic, giving operators the option of reaching audiences via terrestrial, satellite, cable or IP networks, in SD, HD, UHD or indeed all three resolutions. They offer a high degree of flexibility in the way broadcasters choose to work. An AirBox Neo system can be located in the channel's onsite equipment room or controlled via a standard desktop computer, even a laptop, linked to a remotely located service provider. Structurally, AirBox Neo can be configured from a wide range of modules to match any desired workflow.
