PlayBox regards 2016 as the most succesful year in its history

PlayBox Technology reports 2016 as the most successful trading year in its history thanks to the demand for its range of television channel branding and playout solutions throughout the global broadcast market.

 

“At IBC 2016 in September we celebrated our 17,000th delivery of new or upgraded channels compared with the 15,000 total we reached two years before”, has commented PlayBox Technology president Don Ash. “Upgrades from our AirBox product range to the Neo series are proving especially popular. We were also delighted to see our recently introduced CloudAir virtual playout software shortlisted for an IABM Design & Innovation Award”.

“Available on a software-as-a-service basis, CloudAir attracted a very high level of interest from visitors to the various broadcast industry exhibitions, not least during NAB in Las Vegas where delegates were queuing for PlayBox Technology demonstrations on all four days of the show. CloudAir allows extra channels, extra storage and extra facilities to be accommodated quickly and easily”.

“AirBox Neo and its supporting range of options have proved our most successful product launch ever. Neo is quite simply the most reliable, flexible and scalable television channel branding and playout system in the business. It can also be combined closely with CloudAir to create a hybrid system of unprecedented versatility, providing extended features such as cloud-based storage, asset management and disaster-recovery”.

 

“Integrating AirBox Neo servers and CloudAir gives broadcasters an operationally efficient and very cost-effective way to extend both the security and the scale of their operations”, has added PlayBox Technology chief executive officer Pavlin Rahnev. “Additional channels can be added at very short notice using CloudAir without adding to the equipment load in a station’s onsite technical area”.

 

PlayBox Technology promoted Van Duke

On the management front, PlayBox Technology expanded its team with the return in January of Van Duke as USA sales manager. He has since been promoted to US director of operations. Van Duke commenced his broadcast industry career in 1978 as an engineer at WTVJ TV-6 Miami. Five years on, he progressed into sales engineering including roles at Midtown Video, On-Air Systems and Video Technics. He led PlayBox Technology USA from 2006 to 2009, building the business from a start-up to multi-million dollar sales.

 

In the APAC region, Stefanus Tandra was promoted to director of sales for Indonesia. Based in Jakarta, he is working with colleagues Desmon Goh and Iulian Ionescu to provide pre-sales and post-sales support for new and existing customers.
