RCN Selects AirBox Neo-20 Playout System

News Image
Roberts Communications Network (RCN) recently selected the AirBox Neo-20 playout system from PlayBox Neo as the solution for all of its playout needs.

The AirBox Neo-20 will be paired with PlayBox Neo’s multi-channel, multi-server Capture Suite for ingest of multiple live sources. Systems integration firm, Keycode Media, was instrumental in the selection of AirBox Neo-20 and Capture Suite for RCN.

One of RCN’s customers that will benefit from the AirBox Neo-20 playout system is Fathom Events, a world-class entertainment company that requires delivery for a wide variety of both live and pre-recorded content to more than 1,100 movie theatres across North America.

To meet all their playout requirements, RCN needed a highly reliable and extremely robust solution with the ability to time delay live recordings for later playback, in addition to being capable of receiving a wide array of file types for insertion into live scheduled content. After comprehensive research and evaluation, it was clear to RCN that the AirBox Neo-20 was the ideal product to meet its needs.

Because of the application distributing a large mix of live and recorded content to hundreds of movie theatres throughout North America, redundancy and 5.1 surround sound were critical must-haves for RCN. Keycode Media, and Tom Arenz in particular, were invaluable in their support and guidance for this project, which provides a solution for all of RCN’s playout needs.

AirBox Neo-20 provides automated content streaming and broadcast playout for satellite, cloud-based, cable head-ends, over-the-air broadcasters, corporate TV, and internet-based TV. It can easily mix a variety of media files and live inputs in one playlist and provides multiple SDI/IP streaming outputs simultaneously in many standards up to 4K. Media can be trimmed, edited or repositioned. Live productions are streamlined to allow insertion and/or execution of various events or live streams into the playlist. For automated playout AirBox Neo-20 allows playlist scheduling for weeks ahead. Gaps/Time overlaps are automatically resolved to ensure continuous operation even when conflicting timed events are present.
Distributors, broadcasters and post-production houses have to deal with receiving content from multiple live sources on a daily basis. Capture Suite is a multi-channel – multi-server UHD/HD/SD live ingest solution which integrates into the production workflow of any television network, post-production facility or playout center. Capture Suite allows users to control multiple ingest channels, spread on multiple servers from a single web user interface. Functions such as input selection, ingest presets, file naming conventions assignments and auto-transfer functionalities are а single click away from the user.
