Thai Parliament Votes for PlayBox Neo
P

layBox Neo has completed a
high definition parliamentary
broadcast playout system for the
National Assembly of Thailand in
Bangkok.
The new installation is a complete
end-to-end
solution
including
ProductionAirBox
Neo,
TitleBox
Neo and CaptureBox Neo. PlayBox
Neo partnered in the project with
Thai system integrator Broadcast
Audio Service Company Limited and
Bangkok-based distributor Mahajak
Development Company Limited.
"The Thai government required
a solution that would be reliable,
operator friendly, space-efficient and
future-proof," comments Banjongsak
Wonggawee, BASC Project Engineer.
"This is a complete new-install which
gives the production team full control
over the entire workflow from ingest
right through to transmission. PlayBox
Neo was the logical choice on every
count. It was also easy to integrate
with third-party devices which is
crucial in the design of any system. The
system we recommended is based on
six production servers.
"Three of these are configured
to capture, schedule and transmit

proceedings from the 500-seat
Chandra voting chamber in the
Thai Senate plus three for the
Surian chamber in the House of
Representatives."
"ProductionAirBox Neo provides all
the tools needed for live production
and playout in a fast-paced work
environment," says Nut Deesamer,
PlayBox Neo Brand Director, Thailand.
"Combined with TitleBox Neo and
CaptureBox Neo it allows graphics
and rolling text to be created and
manipulated inside the PlayBox Neo
GUI, and all with practically zero

latency. This configuration is ideal
for parliamentary television where
operators don't have the comfort zone
of a studio script. CaptureBox Neo
allows content to be recorded from up
to four video sources simultaneously.
Ingested content is available for
playback
seconds
after
ingest
commences. All captured video and
audio can be monitored and controlled
via a streamlined user interface. Audio
levels can be monitored as loudness or
true-peak displays and adjusted when
required."
"We have partnered with many

clients in the parliamentary and wider
government sectors over the years,
mostly in Europe," adds PlayBox Neo
CEO Pavlin Rahnev. "It is very pleasing
to see our solutions selected for this
important Thai Parliament project.
Parliamentary TV operators require
the same high standards of reliability
and
continuity
as
mainstream
broadcasters in their selection of
supporting products and services."
The new system was completed in
Q2 2020, on time and within budget,
followed by on-site operator training
provided by PlayBox Neo and BASC.

Magna Systems Provides VLink
for Fox Sports Australia
T

ough times have called for
innovative measures as Fox Sports
Australia found when they had a
requirement for remote intercom and
talkback. For the solution they turned
to Magna Systems & Engineering and
the RTS VLink Virtual Communications
system. Fox Sports Australia Broadcast
Projects Engineer Mick Gergos
explained: "We wanted a secure,
simple-to-use and integrated solution
facilitating access to our existing
RTS matrix over standard internet
connections.

"Our requirements included remote
TB communications for key personnel
in production, engineering and
operations and we wanted to expand
this in the future. So, we discussed
our requirements with Lucas Bohm
and Brett Campbell at Magna and
they suggested the RTS VLink Virtual
Communications system."
VLink is an IP-software multichannel, multi-access communications
solution that intelligently connects to
RTS intercoms, creating the optimal
fusion of hardware and software

VLink's "on-prem" communications solution (not implemented by Fox Sports)

capabilities. VLink is highly scalable
to thousands of soft keypanel users,
supports virtually an unlimited number
of point-to-points and PLs, boasts
LDAP integration, SNMP traps, AES
encryption, and SIPREC recording.
Gergos said: "V-Link's licensing
model allowed us to prove the
solution with very little outlay, whilst
providing generous future scalability.
The user interface is extremely
intuitive providing traditional talk and
listen keys on a variety of platforms
including Windows, Mac, Android
and iOS. Best of all, V-Link's tight
integration with RTS Trunkmaster ties
both talkback systems into one unified
platform."
He added, "VLink's security is
excellent as there's no exposure of our
core RTS Matrix to the internet. The
V-Link server provides the gateway
and security. Baseband audio trunks
between the two systems provide the
necessary network isolation to satisfy
our most paranoid IT geeks. Our Head

Fox Sports Australia's new RTS VLink
Virtual Communications system

of Audio absolutely loves the system as
not only is it so efficient but it's easy to
setup too."
He concluded: "There's many IP
audio platforms out there with PTT.
For us however, the integration with
RTS Trunkmaster was mandatory.
VLink also gives Fox Sports the
convenience of a TB in your pocket,
on a desktop or on a laptop anywhere
in the world and it also gives us more
options to deal with mobile blackspots.
Finally I have to mention Lucas Bohm,
Brett Campbell and the Magna Systems
team. It is every customer's right to
harass their supplier for anything,
anytime and for no good reason, but
Lucas and Brett handle the attention
with the upmost professionalism and
for that they much be acknowledged
and thanked. They really make all the
difference."
