PlayBox To Launch New Products At BVE

PlayBox Technology will showcase its new expanded product range at BVE 2013, including the launch of its latest module, ScheduleBox, presented alongside the latest versions of its established products. The Broadcast Systems Group will also be on the stand to discuss wider requirements, from project concept to completion.
ScheduleBox is a web-based client/server solution for creating and managing advanced schedules. Operating within a web browser the user-friendly GUI handles template-based TV broadcast planning, offering straightforward management of single, or multiple, TV channels.
Programme templates present per day, week or month views and schedule management by date per TV channel to provide monitoring and control of all activities, from schedule creation to publishing for broadcast. Any number of users can access and collaborate, based on user rights, and there is full compatibility of programme schedules with the existing playlist format as used in AirBox playout servers and ListBox offline schedule creation. This solution is suitable for TV channels that use a block-based programme schema. It can operate with multi-format TV channels with predefined and repeated blocks as part of the programme schema, and is designed to provide easier control and information gathering as well as better organisation.
Ben Gunkel comments, “The presence of our Broadcast Systems Group at BVE reflects that fact that we are evolving, now working beyond the ‘box’. Many of our customers want more; they want complete working systems. Yes, our boxes can do a lot but there is always the need for, at least, peripheral equipment. And when customers are looking for more, all the way up to complete studios, we are now able to help them.”
PlayBox Technology is running one-to-one demonstrations presenting the latest developments and technology of its playout solutions. Visitors can also sit down and talk with the Broadcast Systems Group about complete workflows from a single-channel playout to a multi-channel broadcast centre with MAM, traffic and news. Other popular solutions include TimeShiftBox, lossless quality time delay for +1 channels, EdgeBox fully redundant automatic remote playout with local branding anywhere in the world via internet, and AdBox for local and remote advert insertion.
