A1 Bulgaria TV subscribers can already enjoy Soul & Pepper new television channel. The launching has been possible by Channel-in-a-Box from PlayBox Neo. The solution includes AirBox Neo-20, TitleBox Neo-20 and Capture Suite and is produced and transmitted in 1080i high definition.

“Matching the most suitable technological solutions to the needs of our business customers is one of our top priorities,” comments Lyubomir Levchev, Senior Manager, Strategic ICT Projects, Innovations and Wholesale, at A1 Bulgaria. “We are glad that we identified AirBox Neo-20 as offering our playout staff an efficient and reliable combination of creative resources, stress-free control and proven reliability, to provide our partners from Soul & Pepper TV channel as a tool helping them meet and exceed A1 TV subscribers’ expectations for a nice TV experience. The solution is very space efficient with the main and backup playout servers each occupying just 2U, which helps our business customers.”

Incoming content is ingested using PlayBox Neo’s Capture Suite and authorized staff performs this process locally or remotely via a single graphic interface. AirBox Neo-20 server coordinates playout scheduling in advance. All additions and any later changes are automatically mirrored onto the backup server as a precaution against main system failing on-air. Also, branding is handled using the TitleBox Neo-20 module.

“PlayBox Neo’s Channel-in-a-Box approach offers many advantages including straightforward integration with third-party equipment such as routers and network-attached archive servers and easy expansion if or when required to accommodate additional program channels. It also makes automation a breeze, allowing secure round-the-clock operation while retaining the freedom to add live content whenever required,” adds PlayBox Neo Area Sales Manager, Detelin Georgiev.
