PlayBox Neo Cloud2TV CiaB Solution

PlayBox Neo’s Cloud2TV is based on the concept of a virtual Channel-in-a Box playout solution along with being IP-based and fully software-centric.

PlayBox Neo has announced a major addition to its product range, Cloud2TV. At its core of Cloud2TV is a playout/IP streaming service supporting UHD, HD and SD. It can be operated in fully automated mode and gives operators the freedom to make schedule changes or insert live content between pre-scheduled content.

Cloud2TV uses a web-based control interface with administrator-adjustable rights assignment, TV channel management, action-logging and notifications. Cloud2TV applications are the main components. Each application functions individually but in close co-ordination with the others to provide a full set of broadcast services supporting the workflow of an entire TV channel.

Specific Cloud2TV applications are assigned to content ingest, graphic editing, media browsing with metadata handling and clip trimming, quality control and verification, transcoding, playlist management and audit logging.

Cloud2TV is available in Platform-as-a-Service deployed on a private cloud, Software-as-a-Service deployed on public clouds, or as an on-premises turnkey system.

"Cloud2TV represents the future of video production and content delivery, providing TV operators with ultimate simplicity, efficiency and agility," says PlayBox Neo CEO Pavlin Rahnev. "Available on a budget-friendly SaaS subscription, it offers numerous advantages such as fast and on-demand channel launch, endless scalability, 24/7 reliability, web-based access and IP workflow. Cloud2TV is fully compatible with existing PlayBox Neo solutions and can be used to extend their capabilities and functionality."
