AirBox Neo Makes First IBC Appearance for PlayBox Technology

PlayBox Technology will display a range of new members of its product offering, plus some refinements to existing models during IBC 2016. Also making its Amsterdam debut will be the AirBox Neo automated media playout system for satellite channels, cable head-ends, ‘traditional’ broadcast and corporate TV.

According to PlayBox Technology president Don Ash, AirBox Neo is already being used by more than 16,500 "television and branding channels around the world". The latest upgrades to the system added Windows 10 compatibility on new Intel CPUs, the sixth generation Core 17 and Xeon Processor E5 v4 range among them.

"Other new additions include advanced automation, ingest control for CaptureBox Neo, Service Description Table support on streaming outputs, automatic playlist export on playlist changes, extended third-party playlist import plus support for closed-caption data from MXF files," Ash added.

Other products in the Neo range have also been expanded and updated. TitleBox Neo now includes support for NewTek's NDI (network device interface) technology, plus the ability to control CaptureBox Pro Neo from AirBox Neo as well as external control for ProductionAirBox Neo.
