PlayBox Celebrates 18,000 TOT Completes Installation
of Phase II Actus System
Channel Deliveries
PlayBox Technology, the world's most successful producer
of broadcast channel branding and playout solutions, will
celebrate its 18,000th product
delivery at BroadcastAsia...

TOT is one of the two main telecom companies of Thailand. Its
history dates back to 1954 with fixed line telephone; it evolved
through mobile telephony and recently added multimedia and
content services...

xhibiting on stand 4J3-01, PlayBox
Technology will be represented by CEO
Pavlin Rahnev, Asia Pacific General Manager
Desmon Goh, Sales Manager Iulian Ionescu
and colleagues from it's Asia Pacific offices.
"This is real landmark year confirming the
sustained success of our server-based Neo
channel-in-a-box product series and our
software-as-a-service CloudAir," Desmon
Goh says. "A particularly encouraging trend
is the growing popularity of hybrid systems
leveraging the on-site accessibility of AirBox
Neo with the CloudAir's fast and operationally
simple expandability. The combination
is particularly advantageous for network
managers organising and supervising 'redbutton' services to support specific events
or programme series lasting just a few days
or weeks. CloudAir is also powering an
increasing number of round-the-clock primary
channels, allowing extra storage and extra
facilities to be incorporated without taking
up space in the customer's onsite apparatus
room."
"Among recently introduced CloudAir
features are a transcoder capable of handling
multiple file wrappers and formats including
MPEG PS/TS, MXF, QT, AVI, MP4, GXF,
MPG2, H.264, ProRes, DNX HD and MJPEG,"
adds Iulian Ionescu. "Also on show will be
improved playlist editing, advanced playlist
export to electronic programme guides and

automated linking of stored assets."
The latest addition to the Neo product range
is Neo TS Time Delay, a 1U IP-based delay
server providing fully transparent delay of IP
transport streams such as DVB/ATSC MPEG
broadcast-quality compressed video and
audio. Designed for broadcasters operating
across multiple time zones, it integrates fully
with the PlayBox Neo product family and
offers a wide range of timing options.
Neo TS Time Delay can be configured with
multiple input channels plus multiple delayed
outputs. Each input also has a zero-delay
output. Operating parameters are easily
adjusted via an integral web-based user
interface, including channel-specific time
delay in 15-second increments. Maximum
delay duration depends on input bit rate and
storage capacity.
Additional features include programme
information display of MPEG-compliant
transport streams plus automatic error
logging. Like all elements of the PlayBox
Technology Neo product series, Neo TS
Time Delay can be configured for single-unit
operation or twinned for use in main and
backup modes.

OT is also a network operator. The
company's search for a multimedia
monitoring solution was initiated
by a few incidents that occurred
around TOT's fibre optic link while
delivering live sport transmissions to
broadcasters. There was a need for an
affidavit system to record and provide a proof
of delivery throughout the various phases of
the transmission.
According to Mr Boonma KhamPoy, Director
of the Broadcasting Operations Sector of TOT,
"Actus' system was found to be the most
reliable during tests and in the beginning of
2017, we installed our first Actus system for
video logging and monitoring of live signals.
Following that installation, if any dispute
occurs today, we are able to provide proof of
performance by exporting the recorded clip to
our customers."
The Actus system included the View
module for recording and playing content,
the Alert-Center for real-time alerts on issues
in the feeds and a light Mosaic system for
multi-viewer wall monitoring. The system
was installed and integrated by Advanced
Digital Tech (ADT), one of the leading
broadcast equipment distributors in Thailand
and distributor of Actus products. ADT
also provides maintenance and support to
guarantee a good working system.
At the end of 2017, TOT defined a Phase II

Delivering live sport transmissions to broadcasters

project to increase the number of channels
and to add recording from IP and ASI
feeds. Both phases are now completed and
integrated into one centralised system using
Actus components.
Mr. Supat Sirithamrat, Managing Director
of Advanced Digital Tech Group Co. Ltd,
declared that "TOT had requirements
regarding video logging and monitoring, to
which Actus complied with their solutions
such as Actus View, Clip Factory, Alert
Center, and especially taking into account
Actus' seamless scalability. TOT also found
our Actus-based solution to be the most cost
effective.
Following the first phase installation at TOT,
that included 6x HD, 8x SD, 2x IP channels,
TOT followed with a second phase this
year and had extended its capacity to 44
channels including ASI feeds. Actus supports
scalability without changing infrastructure and
to date, TOT is satisfied with
the system's performance."
