PlayBox Neo HD Playout Plus eMAM Go Live At TV5HD

PlayBox Neo and EMAM announce the completion of a fully integrated playout and media asset management system for Thai TV5 at the network’s studio headquarters in Bangkok.

The project encompassed the replacement of legacy third-party equipment with a solution designed to combine high operational efficiency, reliability and scalability.

Content arriving at TV5HD, or created in the network's studios, is ingested into the eMAM Enterprise storage servers. The ingest process is supervised using two Capture Suites, and material required for transmission is then transferred to playout server storage within AirBox Neo-20 for on-air playlist preparation, graphics and title generation. Much of this process is handled using Multi Playout Manager. Communication within the PlayBox Neo and eMAM system is over 10G Ethernet IP. The system is configured to function as main and backup with the additional protection of a cool spare.
