Playbox Reports 'Highly Successful' NAB

PlayBox Technology has reported a "highly successful" NAB 2014, exhibiting near its new partner Masstech.

"Our new partnership with Masstech helped make this an outstandingly successful show in the 10 years PlayBox Technology has exhibited at NAB," comments Phillip Neighbour, Business Development Manager of PlayBox Technology UK. "We met many existing clients and a substantial number of potential new customers. NAB is still a predominantly American show but the proportion of booth visitors from Scandinavia, mainland Europe and Africa was very gratifying."
"The high reputation of Masstech in the Americas, and of PlayBox Technology among EAME and APAC broadcasters, looks set to make the corporate partnership a very strong one," adds Peter Petrov, PlayBox Technology Marketing Manager. "Masstech offers the world's most comprehensive content asset management and archiving system. PlayBox Technology produces the world's most widely used channel-in-a-box production and playout solution. Combining the two systems allows content manipulation, storage and playout to be performed within a unified control environment supported by a single reference database."
PlayBox announced a new addition to its range at the show. CaptureBox PRO enables multiple channels of HD or SD content to be captured from HD/SD SDI digital feeds, analogue sources and MPEG transport streams. Four video sources can be monitored on a single screen and controlled via a new streamlined user interface. Audio levels can be monitored as loudness/true-peak displays and adjusted when required. Content is available for playback within a few seconds of ingest commencing. The CaptureBox PRO feature set also includes capture-list import from third-party traffic systems, support for CEA-608/708 closed-captioning and automated VTR control via RS-422 with batch-capture listing.
PlayBox Technology also chose NAB as the launch venue for the latest version of its AirBox, providing automated content playout for satellite channels, cable head-ends, over-the-air broadcasters and corporate TV users. The new version incorporates a GPU-enhanced graphics mixing engine which allows video rotation effects and depth-order laying effects to be performed in real time. Logo animation facilities are also added for applications such as titling, captioning or channel branding.
Audio capabilities of AirBox are expanded with support now provided for Dolby E and Dolby Digital Plus. In its automated playout mode, AirBox allows fixed-time scheduling for weeks ahead. AirBox can be used for live production as well as automated playout. Every clip in the playlist, except the one currently playing, can be trimmed, edited or repositioned seamlessly without stopping current playout session.
