News Image
THVL has chosen to upgrade its broadcast offerings with PlayBox Technology Neo. THVL is one of the largest television networks in Vietnam. Its new system has been designed and commissioned in partnership with the PlayBox Technology official reseller for Vietnam, Mediatech.

Mediatech Project Director Nguyen Tien Long said: "THVL is the state-owned public-service television broadcaster for Vinh Long province. The network has used PlayBox Technology AirBox successfully for many years on both its channels as the core of its channel branding, scheduling and playout infrastructure. This latest installation, at the network's headquarters in Vinh Long City, enables THVL 1 and THVL 2 to advance from standard-definition into high-definition broadcasting. It includes two AirBox Neo servers, two TitleBox Neo channel branding modules and a ListBox Neo schedule creation and playlist editor.

"Automated character generation based on TitleBox Neo makes THVL's output distinctive and highly attractive. The station's operational staff find the entire Neo platform easy to work with. Their engineering colleagues recognise that PlayBox Technology Neo gives them the flexibility to introduce UHD services at any time in the future. THVL also appreciates the high quality after-sales support we are able to provide from our premises in Hanoi."

Don Ash, president, PlayBox Technology, added: "AirBox Neo and its supporting range of options have proved the most successful product launch in our company's history. Neo is quite simply the most reliable, flexible and scalable television channel branding and playout system in the business. It can also be integrated closely with our CloudAir solution to provide extended features such as cloud-based storage, asset management and disaster-recovery.

"The Neo series includes AirBox itself, ProductionAirBox Neo, AdBox Neo, CaptureBox Neo, EdgeBox Neo, ListBox Neo, TitleBox Neo, QCBox Neo, SafeBox Neo and TimeShiftBox Neo. These can be combined on a single server or multiple servers to match practically any modern broadcast workflow. Equally important, the Neo product series is designed to allow easy integration with third-party hardware and software in practically any IP, HD-SDI or SD-SDI configuration. Many companies claim to be developing open IP interfacing. We pioneered IP-based and IP-based content distribution with our long-established and very popular EdgeBox."

AirBox Neo adds UHD capabilities to the core PlayBox Technology content playout system which now supports UHD, HD and SD in single server. New features include a streaming input supporting HTTP, HTTP Secure, UDP, RTMP, MMS, MMSH and YouTube. RTMP Streaming Output improvements have also been added, enabling easy web streaming.
