Internet-based remote working has

That looks to continue along with an

that many channels start by leasing

turnkey systems based on off-theshelf

including the option of main-plusstandby

the system at a remote playout

over the past 22 years. We offer UHD/

to handle every building block of

from ingest, pre-production and
scheduling to terrestrial, satellite and

Forming the core of many PlayBox
Neo installations, our AirBox Neo
system - now at version 20 - allows
channel branding and playout to be
performed within a single compact
system. An automated
streaming
and SDI playout solution, AirBox Neo20
is designed to make TV content
creation and management
easy
and stress-free. Suitable for local or
IP-linked remote control, it allows
scheduling to be performed weeks
ahead of actual transmission. Media
files can be finessed, rescheduled
or integrated with live production
and playlists
configured for 24/7
automated operation. Delivery across
multiple time zones in multiple
languages is supported.
Recent AirBox Neo-20 refinements
include GPU acceleration to achieve
fast
file decoding. Input/output
configuration can be performed
using a web-based

PlayBox Neo's Cloud2TV is designed

These can be closely coordinated
to provide a full set of broadcast

is

configurable for terrestrial,

under full IP control. It also forms
a robust platform for secure media
asset management and archiving,
accessible by authorized operators
anywhere in the world.
Bypassing the ingest bottleneck

system, Capture Suite speeds up
the ingest workflow of television

and playout service providers. Ingest
