TV Visjon Norge Upgrades to Neo

TV Visjon Norge was the first Scandinavian Christian television network to air 24 hours a day and a long-established AirBox user. It recently upgraded to the latest-generation Neo series.

TV Vision Norge has upgraded its PlayBox Technology AirBox broadcast playout and channel branding system.

The network's programming is well produced and highly innovative, making full use of the facilities available within the PlayBox Technology digital workflow. TV Visjon Norge expanded its standard-definition system to high-definition in 2015 when it also launched a Gothenburg-based Swedish channel.

The Neo upgrade was primarily motivated by the network's need to integrate a recently acquired Ross Video NK router. Incoming content is stored as files on a shared central archive. Title graphics and scheduling are all performed within the Neo system and then transmitted direct from one of four AirBox playout servers.

Recently announced Neo series enhancements include new control features, expanded file handling capabilities, greater input and output connectivity and Microsoft Windows 10 compatibility. Among other additions are streaming input compatibility with HTTP(S), UDP, RTMP, MMS(H) and YouTube plus streaming output support for UDP, RTSP and ATSC. The enhancements have all been implemented within the established graphic interface which is familiar to operators around the world.

The PlayBox Technology system at TV Visjon Norge is supported locally by Engstroms AB, one of Sweden's longest established and largest professional media companies. Founded in 1976, Engstroms AB is based in Kungsbacka near Gothenburg.
