PlayBox Technology Celebrates 17,000th Channel Delivery

Date: 27/09/2016
PlayBox Technology reports the most successful IBC show in the company's history. With deliveries of television playout and branding channels now exceeding 17,000, PlayBox Technology retains its position as the world's leading provider of file-based 'channel-in-a-box' playout systems.
 
"We celebrated our 15,000th delivery two years ago and have since been averaging around 1,000 new upgraded channels per year," comments PlayBox Technology President Don Ash. "That is a tremendous vote of confidence in the knowledge base and professional competence of all our staff, from the software development and technical integration team at our headquarters to our sales colleagues and distribution partners around the world."
 
"We were honoured to see our recently introduced CloudAir virtual playout software shortlisted for an IABM Design & Innovation Award. Available on a SaaS basis, CloudAir attracted a huge amount of interest from IBC visitors this year, both as a standalone solution and also to supplement existing AirBox Neo server-based systems."
 
"The server/cloud hybrid concept offers broadcasters the best of both worlds, enabling established PlayBox Technology AirBox customers to operate a completely independent resource based on locally proven working practices and infrastructure. CloudAir opens up an entire new area of operational freedom by allowing extra channels, extra storage and extra facilities to be accommodated quickly and easily. It is a true game changer and looks set to revolutionise the entire playout business."
 
"A central element of our IBC demonstrations was the ease with which media asset management facilities can be accommodated into the PlayBox Technology ecosystem," adds CEO Pavlin Rahnev. "PlayBox Technology broadcast automation supports all existing I/O interfaces, all video and audio standards and all industry-standard graphics and compression formats. That gives our systems integration partners the ability to deploy practically any third-party MAM solution with AirBox Neo. Here again, CloudAir allows media assets to be stored online with the option of secure access from any IP connected location."

Let Sony Ci make the Cloud work for you

We’ve all heard about the Cloud, and how you need to be on it, or in it, to keep ahead in media production. What we’ve not all heard about is how to actually get there and how simple it can be for media companies to make it work for them. If you’re reluctant to make the leap, consider the experience of ITN Productions, the London-based bespoke production hub producing creative and commercially valuable content for the corporate, commercial, broadcast and digital sectors.
