Vector 3™, a pioneer in graphics and playout solutions, announced today that they will showcase for the first time at the CABSAT exhibition, held in Dubai from March 2 - 4, 2010 (UBMS Partner Stand ZC-11), the revolutionary Vector Multi-Play playout solution alongside the company's flagship VectorBox systems. The new, innovative, multi-tiered MultiPlay product portfolio offers broadcasters a unique distributed architecture for optimizing multi-channel playout automation and redundancy. The advanced controls in the new MultiPlay solution enable broadcasters to design smart redundant architectures that near eliminate mirroring through an innovative scan and assist technology that employs a 1 to many set up as opposed to 1 to 1. Vector's MultiPlay's product line is modular and includes a complete master control room, options for graphics and channel branding, and multi-channel ingest capabilities. Developed on the VectorBox engineering principles, the breadth and depth of MultiPlay features are packaged into a well-designed and well-known Vector 3 style interface.
"The Vector MultiPlay product line has incorporated many cost efficiencies for broadcasters. Based on open-standards, the highly versatile MultiPlay products work with IT and Broadcast hardware components; but the true value is in the flexibility of the distributed architecture," says Roman Ceano, general manager of Vector 3. "Continuing in Vector 3's revolutionary philosophy, the forward thinking Vector MultiPlay technology can be reconfigured to adapt to changing operations, guaranteeing the right level of back up and support across channels… prioritizing system security based on channel importance. This is a significant savings for broadcasters who use the traditional backup strategy and mirror each channel."
In accord with Vector 3 standards of excellence, the team will be demonstrating the latest version of VectorBox with SD/HD Simulcasting. "Our new VectorBox systems offer broadcasters the industry's most cost-effective and comprehensive playout automation solution on the market," said Ceano. "The fully integrated "all-in-one" VectorBox systems serve to minimize cost and maximize productivity, while supreme performance features present an immeasurable workflow experience." The cost-effective VectorBox all-in-one playout servers pair a robust master control room feature set with third generation channel branding that includes real time RSS & XML updates and integrated effects. Considered one of the standard playout systems in the industry, VectorBox offers easy integration with new and existing third-party broadcast equipment. The highly flexible VectorBox system scalability, outstanding redundancy, and guaranteed compatibility combine to make VectorBox the preeminent playout solution technology.
