PlayBox Neo showcases enhanced PlayBox Neo Suite at IBC 2022
“Operational efficiency and flexibility are more important than ever for broadcasters and playout service providers as they compete for audience attention across terrestrial, cable, satellite and IP networks,” says Pavlin Rahnev, CEO of PlayBox Neo.
“Designed to interface with PlayBox Neo Suite, Capture Suite gives ingest staff the resources they need to handle multiple incoming content feeds. Tasks such as input selection, ingest presets, file-naming rules, assignments and auto-transfer can also be performed from a single graphic interface. Capture Suite also provides audio loudness monitoring as well as manual, scheduled and compliance ingest modes with automated input switching. Content can be edited before the ingest process completes. MXF and TS files are available for immediate playout via AirBox Neo-20 automation, without having to wait for the ingest process to complete,” assures Mr. Rahnev.
“Also forming part of PlayBox Neo Suite, Media Gateway, which we announced and demonstrated at the show, elevates playout routing and distribution to a new level of versatility and affordability. It allows the entire process of playout routing and decoding to be handled in software. Media Gateway can be installed on site or in the cloud. Integral software codecs allow signals to be converted between SDI, NDI, SRT, UDP and RTP. Video and audio content can be grabbed directly from a desktop screen and delivered as live feeds,” comments the CEO of PlayBox Neo.
“Multi Playout Manager allows multiple AirBox Neo-20 channels to be operated via IP from any network-connected location. Latest enhancements include an updated user interface and integrated playout preview. The revised UI matches those across the entire PlayBox Neo series. Also added are a playlist editor, support for custom metadata from AirBox Neo-20, and a library module for fast access to MAM”, concludes Pavlin Rahnev.
