OH-TV Expands Services With New AirBox Playout Channels

News Image
Broadcaster and international TV network provider OH-TV has expanded with 10 additional AirBox playout channels from PlayBox Technology. This new investment allows the London-based company to offer playout services to other broadcasters in addition to producing and transmitting its own channels.

"We bought our first AirBox playout system in May 2008 following careful evaluation of the available systems," Akin Salami, OH-TV CEO, said.

"The service-provider we were working with at that time was itself a successful PlayBox Technology customer which certainly influenced our choice. We were impressed by the modular structure of the PlayBox Technology platform. It gave us the ability to choose the precise combination of features we needed for our combination of live and scheduled channels. A second PlayBox Technology AirBox system was added in 2009.

"We now have a total of 12 AirBox playout automation servers working in sync with network-attached-storage, fully integrated by PlayBox Technology. All 12 servers can be operated remotely or straight from our MCR. This solution is very robust, working continuously every day of the year. Its reliability allows us to get on with our core business of making and transmitting programmes.

"We transmit our own content to viewers in the UK and Europe via Sky satellite and Freeview. We also produce OH USA which is transmitted via the IP-based UN1TY platform.

"Other broadcasters have seen the efficiency of our operation and that makes our services attractive globally. Our current playout client base includes SMASH TV, TIWA TIWA, Hip TV Nigeria, Glitz, Views channel and VEATZ 24. They stay with us because they know we are easy to work with and, thanks to PlayBox Technology, highly reliable and efficient."
