PlayBox Technology has chosen IBC2015 as the launch venue for the full production version of SocialMediaBox. Available as a standalone solution or integrated with the TitleBox channel branding system, SocialMediaBox allows comments from multiple web sites or social networking feeds to be processed quickly and efficiently into a single ready-for-broadcast stream.

“Social media services have grown massively both in number and popularity since the early days of Facebook and Twitter,” comments Don Ash, PlayBox Technology Managing Partner and Director, Sales. “SocialMediaBox gives broadcasters the ability to select and moderate comments and images from a variety of different internet sources, integrating these into a single feed to supplement a live programme. Data can be combined into an RSS feed and forwarded downstream to other devices or sent to a character generator such as TitleBox for viewing as an integral part of the programme output. This forms a highly efficient basis for the creation of auxiliary-screen pages for viewer feedback.”

SocialMediaBox is controlled using a standard web browser. Operators can view preconfigured feeds from various sources and add the desired posts to a customised list using simple drag-and-drop. Comments in the customised feed can then be edited, checked against a profanity word list and published immediately or floated until approved for publishing.

SocialMediaBox is PlayBox Technology client/server application using SQL-based data storage and supporting multi-user access as well as multiple outputs. A single SocialMediaBox account can be deployed across several television shows and channels. Multiple user accounts can be assigned, each account then being able to create customised feeds. Access to each feed can also be configured as private, accessible by designated users or available to all users.
