FORK Supports
XDCAM With Avid

TVB Upgrades With PlayBox
P

l ay B ox Te c h n o l o g y h a s
completed an upgrade to the
playout facilities at Hong Kong’s
largest independent broadcaster,
Television Broadcasts (TVB).
The project, which also included
customer training, was completed
together with the engineering team
from Mediatech (International) Ltd,
the local PlayBox Technology partner,
and was finalised with the installation
of 26 servers at the network’s
headquarters in TVB City, Kowloon.
The installation encompassed nine
HD 24/7 channels. Seven of them are
already on air and the others are in
precommission testing.
Twenty of the servers installed
consist of PlayBox Technology
AirBox and TitleBox, for playout,
with character generation and
graphics. Eighteen are configured

with 1:1 redundancy level for main
and back-up operation on the nine
high-definition channels.
Control of the nine high-definition
channels is via Multi Playout Manager,
a fully assignable monitoring and
control system. Two redundant Multi
Backup Manager servers were added
to manage redundancy switching on
an existing Snell Aurora router.
An additional pair of servers have
been installed for use in staff training,
again as main and backup.
PlayBox Technology also supplied
four single-channel CaptureBox
servers, each with additional playout
software installed for video quality
control and verification. Once content
is approved, it is automatically sent
to two 16TB network-attached
storage servers, configured for main
and redundant operation.

NED: Primestream’s FORK
Production Suite can now
record XDCAM MXF files that
will update in Avid Media
Composer while recording.
The long-GOP codec can be used
with the craft editor plus the benefits
of the FORK Production automation
and media asset management
platform for I/O, logging,
tagging, proxy editing, workflow
management, and archiving.
The
Edit-While-Capture
functionality for Media Composer is
an optional component for the FORK
Media Player.
