The latest-generation PlayBox Neo user interface examples.
PlayBox Neo elevates broadcast playout to higher levels of quality and efficiency.
PlayBox Neo will demonstrate a complete UHD/HD/SD playout solution designed to handle every building block of the content management process from ingest, pre-production and scheduling to terrestrial, satellite and online transmission. Making their NAB debut will be the Capture Suite network-based multi-channel ingest solution, the newly enhanced Multi Playout Manager (MPM) and the latest-generation AirBox Neo-20 series playout system.
"It's wonderful to see the NAB Show back in Vegas after its two gap years," says VanDuke, PlayBox Neo US Director of Operations. "We have a good location at the front of the North Hall, just off the LVCC main entrance. A key element of our demo will be 4K-UHD which is gathering momentum worldwide as a high-end broadcasting standard. PlayBox Neo systems can be configured to provide full support for playout in 4K-UHD, HD and SD, including simultaneous transmission in multiple standards.
"We will also be promoting PlayBox Neo's support for IP control which empowers administrator-approved operators to work remotely via a secure internet link. This has long been a core feature of our systems, linking TV network headquarters with regional studios in other cities, states or continents.
"PlayBox Neo solutions are designed for channel branding and playout services of any size, from a single Channel-in-a-Box up to a multi-language global network. Their reliability has been confirmed over 22 years in more than 19,000 TV and branding channels. That inherent robustness can be augmented with any desired level of standby protection. Our systems can be server-based, SaaS-based, or both in a hybrid setup, enabling extra channels to be added at very short notice.
"From a workflow perspective, PlayBox Neo systems allow fully prescheduled automation while retaining the ability to adjust the playout schedule at any time before transmission, or switch to live input for urgent announcements or late-breaking news. Output can be transmitted over satellite, terrestrial or cable networks or direct-streamed via IP."
