Nigerian Evangelical TV Channel Expands With PlayBox Neo Broadcast Playout System

PlayBox Neo announces the completion of a broadcast playout system for a globally active evangelical TV channel based in Lagos, Nigeria. The system was selected and integrated by E & E Solutions which operates from administrative headquarters in Abuja and technical facilities in Lagos.

"PlayBox Neo's channel-in-a-box approach proved ideal for this project," comments E & E's CEO, Dhileep Meyyappan. "Compact, reliable and easy to operate, it is configured with all the facilities required for channel branding, content scheduling, storage and fully automated transmission."  The entire playout process is handled within a 3 RU AirBox Neo-20 server including 6 terabytes of RAID-protected storage, TitleBox Neo-20 graphics management software and a SafeBox Neo-20 content replication module.

As well as being operator friendly, PlayBox Neo-20 servers are straightforward to install and integrate with third-party production and distribution equipment. PlayBox Neo-20 systems are also highly scalable as extra channels are easily accommodated if or when needed. Additional CIAB modules can be integrated relatively quickly or supplemented at very short notice by Cloud2TV running as on premises software or cloud Software as a Service.

"We are very pleased to be partnering with E & E Solutions in this project," adds PlayBox Neo's CEO, Pavlin Rahnev. "AirBox Neo-20 continues to be an aspirational choice for broadcasters throughout the world and for system integrators commissioned to create new-start-up channels or to upgrade existing facilities."
