PlayBox Neo to showcase its updated brochure at Broadcast Asia 2022

PlayBox Neo heads to Singapore for Broadcast Asia. Exhibiting on stand 5F2-01 in the ASME Pavilion, the team will demonstrate its channel branding, playout systems and services including enhancements such as Cloud2TV UHD/HD/SD playout system.

Also on show at Broadcast Asia 2022 will be PlayBox Neo’s AirBox Neo-20 server-based channel branding and playout system, Multi Playout Manager (MPM) broadcast playout monitoring and control system and Capture Suite ingest management system

AirBox Neo-20 is a server-based television channel branding and playout system supported by several software modules. Available in 1U channel-in-a-box and 3U multichannel versions, it is suitable for local or IP-linked remote control.

Multi Playout Manager (MPM) is broadcast playout monitoring and control system which enables multiple AirBox Neo-20 channels to be operated via IP from any network-connected location. The enhancements include an updated user interface, integrated playout preview, playlist editor, support for custom metadata from AirBox Neo-20 plus a library module for fast access to MAM.

PlayBox Neo’s Capture Suite allows multiple ingest channels to be managed across multiple servers. Functions such as input selection, ingest presets, file-naming rules, assignments and auto-transfer can be performed from a single graphic interface. Features include a multiviewer with black-frame and frozen-frame alarms plus loudness audio level monitoring as well as manual, scheduled and compliance ingest modes with automated input switching. Content can be edited before the completion of ingest. MXF and transport stream files are available for playout via AirBox Neo-20 automation without having to wait for the ingest process to complete.

“We are seeing strong growth in broadcast media business as channel managers emerge from three years of Covid lockdown,” says CEO Pavlin Rahnev. “Many are looking to replace legacy hardware with high-efficiency latest-generation systems. Scalability and automation continue to be priorities. Many television networks, telcos and independent playout service providers are exploring the relative advantages of server-based, software-based and cloud-based playout. We make the choice easy with a unified user interface across many of our products and services, straightforward integration with third-party deliverables, plus the ability to accommodate additional program channels at very short notice.”
