PlayBox Technology EU launches innovative SubtitleNEXT Central and EXEcutor™ Media Integrator solutions at IBC2017 to reinforce enterprise efficiency
Global systems integration specialists PlayBox Technology EU (PBT EU) reinforces its position at IBC2017 (Stand A.10), by demonstrating a broad range of new products and solutions – the EXEcutor™ Media Integrator, the EXEcutor™ Sync Master and the SubtitleNEXT Central application suite. Real-world user case studies and customer workflows will be available on the booth for visitors to observe and try out for themselves.
Manufactured by PBT EU and meticulously verified to meet industry standards, the wide range of new product lines caters for all industries and organisations across the spectrum including broadcasters, content providers, telecoms, production, and post-production companies.
EXEcutor™ Broadcast Server line provides everything a broadcaster needs
This IBC, PBT EU’s EXEcutor™ Media Integrator module will be on show for the first time, which serves as an essential addition to the “Channel-In-A-Box” bundle, making it future-ready and highly adaptable for all production environments. The module expands the “Channel-In-A-Box” concept beyond the traditional channel origination, over to the production and asset control environment, therefore making it much more accessible, and only one mouse-click away.
Furthermore, significant functionalities have enhanced the intuitive EXEcutor™ Virtual Control Panel (EVCP), also on show, as part of the advanced EXEcutor™ broadcast server line that was launched at IBC last year, which has already been adopted by many companies including award-winning teleport STN.
Also launching for the first time this IBC is PBT EU’s EXEcutor™ Sync Master – the specialised hardware-independent software tool employed to powerfully connect and synchronise video materials to a variety of external software and hardware devices that are traditionally implemented in professional sound design, including music, entertainment, audio and video production, events management, multimedia production and post-production. User-friendly and easy to install, it is designed to save audio professionals a great deal of time, and to vigilantly protect content owners’ copyrights. The EXEcutor™ Sync Master can also be used as a standalone application or as part of the “LAPIS for Media” solution and can work as a “slave” or connecting video player to link to professional audio systems such as Avid Pro Tools and Sony Vegas. It can also masterfully coordinate various video materials between them, allowing easy management of numerous videos on single or multiple screens. It also has the unique capability to play locally available video files, as well as those from third party desktop or web-based asset and content management systems, including online and encrypted videos, consequently, eliminating the tedious task of having to download them first.
Multilingual captioning SubtitleNEXT Central supports real time capabilities
SubtitleNEXT is PBT EU’s advanced captioning subtitling product family of toolsets with a remarkable scope of modules, applications and hardware that supports all timed text-related scenarios from creation to distribution. The product line includes several software licensing options, ranging from entry level SubtitleNEXT Novice to Еxplorer, Spark, Spin and Live Options, Subtitle Export for cinema (digital, 35mm), SubtitleNEXT Air through to SubtitleNEXT Expert, with the latest brand-new ground-breaking SubtitleNEXT Central to be launched this IBC. SubtitleNEXT Central is effectively the heartbeat of an end to end subtitle workflow, and is an exceptional development with multichannel, multilingual captioning and subtitling modules that flaunt advanced subtitle workflow capabilities with the tremendous capacity to support universal subtitle format transcoding and real time live content. SubtitleNEXT Central is specifically designed for real time automatic subtitle processing and output in different standards and protocols, manipulating different offline file formats, as well as real time protocols and standards as key sources that are linked to several programme sources at the same time.
LAPIS – reliable data management solution that radically centralises processes effortlessly
Profuz Digital’s LAPIS features again on PBT EU’s stand – an ingenious solution that ultimately gives users more time to concentrate on being creative and not getting bogged down with processes. It is a fully comprehensive web-based information management system designed to centralise processes and data under one roof. It prepares, ingests, converts, encrypts, and watermarks materials automatically to be used for literally everything related to data-processing, as well as localisation, translation, editing, dubbing, voice-over and subtitling, into one single environment.
PBT EU’s world-class production workflows and playout
Compelling production workflow demonstrations will take place on the PBT EU stand at IBC revealing how PBT EU’s solutions work in real-life environments, such as at Doli Media Studio, one of Europe’s largest audio post-production companies. The recent installation of PBT EU’s Executor™ Sync Master, along with LAPIS and SubtitleNEXT at Doli Media Studio displays a highly efficient and pioneering creative sound production pipeline across the entire facility, and visitors to the stand can find out more about this innovative project.
PBT EU’s GM, Vladimir Stanic remarks, “We have the expertise and are completely dedicated to delivering sound future-proof technology that’s accommodating to meet customers’ technical, creative and practical needs, that also remains relevant and grows with them. We are customer-obsessed and driven to provide solutions that are designed to simplify a professional’s life and not make it more complicated. Our services can be tailor-made to create the best results to suit each individual case. We welcome visitors to the show to come and see us and we look forward to providing solutions that defeat their challenges.”
Alexander Stoyanov, PBT EU’s Sales Director comments, “It’s a dynamic time in the industry and we are passionate about finding the perfect solution for our customers. We welcome them with great excitement to the PBT EU stand, to share our progress and listen to them and the challenges they are up against. From the classic “TV Channel-in-a-Box”, a part of our rising star EXEcutor™ Server line, to the latest releases of the EXEcutor™ Sync Master, SubtitleNEXT Central, EVCP and LAPIS, our clients can discover an extensive range of versatile tools that are vital in creating a custom-built platform that meets individual specific needs.”
