PPTV Invests in AirBox Neo-19 CIAB from PlayBox Neo

PlayBox Neo announces the completion of a new AirBox Channel-in-a-Box playout system for Plovdiv Orthodox TV (PPTV), commissioned by the Metropolis of Plovdiv. It includes a server running Neo-19 ingest, transcoding, titling, scheduling and transmission modules. The new installation augments and upgrades existing AirBox CIAB infrastructure commissioned when PPTV commenced broadcasting 10 years ago.

"This investment provides us with latest-generation software running on new dedicated hardware," says PPTV Technical Director Yuriy Todorov. "It includes many refinements which make our day to day channel management operations more efficient than ever. Particularly appreciated is the low-glare graphic user interface which our presentation colleagues find eye-friendly throughout the duration of a working shift."

"Also appreciated is Neo-19's very logical display structure which provides the information essential to each phase of the content sourcing, finessing and scheduling process without peripheral distractions. Supplementary information, if or when needed, is easily accessible from the main GUI.

"A great strength of Neo-19 is that it alerts the operator if any aspect of a prescheduled playout process still needs attention. The PlayBox Neo system also gives our staff the option of working with full automation while retaining the ability to insert live content whenever required."

Embrionix Adds Frame Synchronizer to Miniaturized  Software-Defined SMPTE ST2110 SDI-IP Gateways
Embrionix today announced that its SDI-IP (SMPTE ST2110) miniaturized emSFP and emFusion gateways now offer frame synchronization technology on encapsulation. The option allows broadcasters to eliminate the costs and time involved in frame syncing signals before the IP gateway and ensures free-run SDI signals are aligned with the IP system’s PTP Grandmaster. The frame sync will also address timing alignment challenges with non-Epoch-aware equipment while ensuring the alignment of non-genlocked SDI cameras and remote feeds.
