PlayBox Technology Powers New HD Production Facility

News Image
PlayBox Technology's Neo solution has been installed by First National Channel, Tajikstan's state television broadcaster, as the core of a new production, graphics and playout facility at its studios in Dushanbe.

Supplied by Kiev-based broadcast system integrator OPTA Video, the new system forms part of a major expansion to 1080i high definition.

Shohruhmirzo Izmoilzoda, Senior Engineer, First National Channel, said: "PlayBox Technology solutions have been operating very successfully over many years at our three sister channels, Safina TV, TV Bachoristan and TV Jahonnamo. Our requirement was for a complete server-based scheduling, interstitials-preparation and play-to-air solution centralised into our master control room. We also needed to equip the FNC newsroom with two production channels for news story preparation plus an extra two channels for content routed to two video walls. OPTA Video partnered with us to create a fully integrated system which works very well and is popular with our production staff as well as the technical team."

"We have provided a total of five PlayBox Technology servers," commented Sergei Korotya, Head of Engineering, OPTA Video. "These comprise two AirBox Neo playout servers in main and backup configuration, a TitleBox Neo channel branding and titling server, a CaptureBoxPro dual-channel ingest server and a ProductionAirBox Neo with four playback channels. Following installation, we performed full onsite testing and FNC staff training. Training is always a breeze with PlayBox Technology products as the technical staff appreciate the modularity and flexible scalability of Neo. Operators find the user interface highly intuitive, displaying exactly the information they need for each specific task plus the ability to access extra detail if or when required."
