TV Visjon Norge has selected a PlayBox Technology broadcast playout and channel branding system for installation at its headquarters in Drammen, southern Norway. The project was completed in partnership with Scandinavian systems integration specialist Engstroms AB.

"We have been using PlayBox Technology equipment for many years," says TV Visjon Norge Operations Manager John Sanjee. "Our creative team find it easy to operate and very versatile. Incoming content is stored as files on a shared central archive. Title graphics and scheduling are all performed within the PlayBox Technology system and then transmitted direct from one of our four AirBox playout servers. Our technical staff appreciate the inherent reliability of PlayBox Technology products and the fast support available if needed. The newly expanded system enables us to introduce high-definition and add more channels. We are keeping our existing software which helps make the whole exercise very cost-efficient. It also reduces the training time needed to get up to speed with the new infrastructure."

"Working with TV Visjon Norge and PlayBox Technology on this project was a great pleasure," adds Andreas Eliasson, Managing Director of Engstroms A.B. "The system was specified from a standard set of hardware and software modules. All elements of the PlayBox Technology system are field-proven and guaranteed to work effectively with each other. The solution provided for TV Visjon Norge includes an ingest server, a network-attached storage server, a preparation station and RAID-protected AirBox playout servers with integral graphics software."

"Our solutions are successfully in use by many of the world's major broadcasters as well as regional and special-interest television channels," adds PlayBox Technology Business Development Director Maurice de Jonghe. "TV Visjon Norge was the first Scandinavian Christian television network to air 24 hours a day. The network's programmes are very well produced and highly innovative, making full use of the facilities available within the PlayBox Technology digital workflow. We are pleased to see the network moving forward into high definition."
