News Image
PlayBox Technology has announced it will introduce the latest advances in TV production and broadcast workflow at BVE 2015.

PlayBox Technology will demonstrate its advanced broadcast channel-in-a-box branding and playout product range on stand F12.

The company's representatives at BVE 2015 will include Don Ash, Ben Gunkel, Ananth Sam, Phillip Neighbour, Alan Bunting, Maurice de Jonghe and Kevin Salvidge.

"PlayBox Technology is the world's number one 'TV-channel-in-a-box' manufacturer, powering over 15,000 playout and branding channels around the globe," commented PlayBox Technology UK Managing Director Don Ash. "Our systems deliver full broadcast performance at IT prices. Fully modular, they are easy to install, configure, operate and expand. We will be providing one-to-one demonstrations of our latest developments including ProductionAirBox, TimeShiftBox, EdgeBox, CaptureBox Pro, SocialMediaBox and AdBox."

New products to be introduced at BVE 2015 include:

SocialMediaBox: All social media on a single screen
SocialMediaBox enables programme production and presentation creators to incorporate comments from multiple social networking feeds quickly and efficiently into a single ready-for-broadcast stream. Comments can be selected and moderated from a variety of different social media outlets, integrating sources such as Facebook and Twitter on a single feed for transmission. This is extremely useful for live television shows which produce auxiliary-screen pages for viewer feedback. The custom feed can be output as an RSS feed and used in other systems, or sent to TitleBox for on-air presentation. Direct 'push' control to the TitleBox character generator allows better live interaction.

CaptureBox Pro: Simultaneous ingest of multiple channels
A successor to the existing CaptureBox ingest server, CaptureBox Pro allows multiple channels of HD or SD content to be captured from 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 ingested to CaptureBox Pro is available for playback within a few seconds of capture 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. Additional features include a GPU-accelerated encoding engine, plus expanded metadata handling and creation during the ingest process.

ProductionAirBox: Instant playout of multiple channels
ProductionAirBox provides content playout for news, live broadcasts, virtual-studio screens, and video walls. Four independent players are accommodated in a single server with built-in aspect ratio and resolution conversion as well as integral support of a wide variety of compressions. Content can thus be played without transcoding. A dedicated multiviewer is also incorporated. ProductionAirBox provides 2K/4K SDI output, enhanced playlist handling and end-of-clip actions. The server can be operated from multiple locations via its own remote application, also GPI/VDCP/MOS control is available.

TimeShiftBox DUO: Multi-channel time zone offset
TimeShiftBox DUO allows simultaneous programme delay for more than one SD/HD channel. It allows broadcasters to re-transmit television channels across multiple time zones. Designed for easy integration into playout centres, DTH operators or for other applications where delay of SD/HD-SDI is required, TimeShiftBox Duo provides all the resources needed to perform accurate time offsets for any duration ranging from 10 seconds to more than one month. Logo overlay and optional interactive character generation are also available. TimeShiftBox DUO is fully transparent to ancillary data, including audio streams.

EdgeBox: Fully automated remote redundant playout
EdgeBox enables fully redundant automatic remote playout anywhere in the world via the internet. It makes delivering a TV station complete with local branding and content to anywhere in the world an economic reality, even for small audiences. EdgeBox enables the whole operation to be run from an established broadcast centre, at a cost that makes sense.

AdBox: Seamless Ad Insertion
PlayBox Technology AdBox enables content owners to maximise their business potential by targeting advertisements for specific audiences. It can be installed locally or remotely at the head-end, then monitored and controlled via the internet. If required, many hundreds of hours of ad insertion and Digital Programme Insertion (DPI) can be scheduled. AdBox can be configured as a stand-alone system to be integrated into the content owner's current workflows and infrastructure. AdBox can also include graphics capabilities ranging from simple logo insertion to full character generation and interactive graphics.
