P layBox Technology announces the completion of a large system
expansion at the headquarters of Romanian broadcaster Neptun TV.
“PlayBox Technology has worked with us as a partner for many years and
was there at every important step we made in developing our production
and playout infrastructure,” states Neptune TV’s Executive Manager Dan
Dumitru. “In our fi rst few years of operation we have expanded our resources
and our reach, opening a new studio in Bucharest and sourcing content from
reporters in every major city in the country.
Charitable rafﬂe from
Support “This latest upgrade will enable us to offer high-defi nition content delivery
as part of our strategy of delivering the best possible content to maximise
viewers attention. Many Romanian households now possess full 1080-
line television receivers and can appreciate the high image detail HD offers
compared with 625-line standard defi nition. This year we have made a new
agreement with Playbox in changing all our playout and graphics machines
to the latest versions. These give us greater effi ciency, more storage capacity
and very high reliability, enabling our production and presentation staff to work
faster and with very high confi dence.”
