PlayBox Neo has announced its participation in the Next Best Thing (NBT) Media Tour, hosted by Broadcasters General Store and Second Opinion Communications, Inc. NBT hosts Dave Kerstin, owner of Broadcasters General Store, and Gregory Dahl, owner of Second Opinion Communications, Inc (SOCi), will present three of the latest innovations from PlayBox Neo.

During the NBT Tour, PlayBox Neo will showcase the core applications of its Channel-in-a-Box with the Capture Suite network-based, ingest controller and the newly enhanced Multi Playout Manager.

Van Duke, PlayBox Neo U.S. Director of Operations, will be on hand during the NBT Tour stops in Houston and Dallas. The tour stops at the Senior Road Tower Group on May 17 from 11am-2pm, 4110 McHard Road in Houston and will make local stops in its new mobile studio in Dallas on May 18.

The NBT is hosting 50 events this year in various locations throughout the U.S. locations, ranging from television stations to vendor facilities, to broadcast industry organization headquarters. The NBT tour began on May 9th in Albuquerque and was held at the New Mexico Broadcasters Association. The tour includes 50 dates in 48 cities throughout the U.S.

The 2022 NBT TOUR features over 25 technology products for the broadcast, education and H.O.W. industries. In addition to PlayBox Neo, other companies participating in the NBT Tour include: Electro-Voice (Bosch U.S.), EditShare, Enco Systems, and Yellowtec.

This is the third year of the NBT Media Tour, which began in 2020 with a schedule of 40 broadcast market visits. In 2021 the NBT TOUR grew to 70 broadcast markets, with several vendors taking part in the live events.

PlayBox Neo Channel-in-a-Box is a turnkey playout server solution for broadcasting a single or multiple TV channels in HD or UHD. It provides a seamless workflow to keep a channel on-air by combining scheduling, ingest, playout, CG and interactive graphics within one box and remote tools to enhance QC checks, preparation and monitoring. The output can be SDI or IP streaming and suitable for a variety of applications including traditional broadcast TV, pay-TV, playout centres, satellite operators, etc.

By leveraging on the SaaS in the cloud or traditional platforms on-premises, PlayBox Neo Channel-in-a-Box offers media ingest with Capture Suite, playout automation with AirBox Neo-20, interactive CG and graphics with TitleBox Neo-20 and scheduling with ListBox Neo-20.

On display at the NBT Tour, the new Multi Playout Manager (MPM) broadcast playout monitoring and control system allows multiple AirBox Neo-20 channels to be operated via IP from any network-connected location. Latest-generation enhancements include an updated user interface and integrated playout preview. The revised UI matches those across the entire PlayBox Neo series. MPM now includes a future-playlist editor, support for custom metadata from AirBox Neo-20 plus a library module for fast access to MAM.

PlayBox Neo's Capture Suite enables multiple ingest channels to be managed across multiple servers. Functions such as input selection, ingest presets, file-naming rules, assignments and auto-transfer can be performed from a single graphic interface. Features include: a multiviewer with black-frame and frozen-frame alarms plus loudness audio level monitoring, as well as manual, scheduled and compliance, ingest modes with automated input switching. Content can be edited before the completion of ingest.
