PlayBox Technology will introduce at IBC in September its NewsRoomBox newsroom production system
PlayBox Technology delivers broadcast systems ranging in scale from a single-channel playout server to a complete multi-channel broadcast centre. NewsRoomBox provides all the facilities required for efficient newsroom management, story creation and studio control. It allows live and pre-recorded content to be united to create news programmes using text, video, audio, photos and incoming data. Video trimming can be performed with single-frame precision.
NewsRoomBox can be used to unite and process content from an exceptionally wide range of sources including live Newswire, RSS and Atom feeds. Playout servers, character generators and teleprompters may be controlled directly from the web-browser-based NewsRoomBox ‘Rundown’ operating screen. Control of AirBox, TitleBox and external routers can be performed either offline or during live transmission. Multiple AirBox playout and TitleBox interactive CG and graphic servers are also supported.
Built on the Microsoft Windows Server 2012 operating system, NewsRoomBox incorporates a robust MS-SQL database management system which allows an unlimited number of media, text and metadata and be assigned to each news story within a user-definable folder structure. The media libraries support MAM and NAS File Storage.
The processed output from NewsRoomBox can be profiled for output to tickers, teletext, web, social media, blogs, mobile television receivers, Connected TV and OTT. All news sources and output formats may be handled within a single workflow.
