PlayBox Technology Provides Channel Branding and Playout for Upgraded Golf Channel Thailand Studios

Golf Channel Thailand has chosen channel branding and playout systems from PlayBox Technology as the core of a major upgrade to its studios in Bangkok.

Jirapat Khamkaun, Golf Channel's Head of Engineering & Operations, said they were looking for the most efficient possible way of combining live high definition broadcasting with automated content playout. They standardized on PlayBox Technology AirBox transmission servers and TitleBox channel branding, due to their ease of operation versatility and proven reliability.

AirBox is a content playout and streaming system capable of operating both in standard-definition and high-definition. Designed for 24/7 unattended operation, it can be connected easily to third-party devices. AirBox supports MPEG1/2/H.264, HDV and DV streams from practically any production platform capable of providing AVI, MPEG, MXF, QuickTime or WMV content. Files from third-party broadcast content servers are natively supported.
