RTV-7 Choose PlayBox Technology Solution
A playout solution from PlayBox Technology has been chosen by the television RTV-7 as part of an infrastructure upgrade. The solution centres on an AirBox Neo compact 3U channel-in-a-box server with TitleBox Neo interactive on-air graphics.
Harm Van Houten, a broadcast engineer and IT architect of YourSide, said: “PlayBox Technology spearheaded with its AirBox platform the transition of broadcast playout from dedicated hardware to file-based systems running on enterprise PCs. In so doing, they made broadcast playout easier, more affordable, more reliable and more expandable.
“This new RTV-7 installation will be controlled from The Netherlands. The network’s director already has many years of experience working with PlayBox Technology AirBox. Video content is sourced from public-service and commercial broadcasters in the Netherlands Antilles to the AirBox server via secure IP links. It is then branded as RTV7 and played out to viewers across the Netherlands. The new AirBox Neo installation will be hosted by United at its Music Pavilion facility in the Hilversum Media Park. A subscription-based feed is currently being broadcast via cable and the internet. It is scheduled to go fully live in early November.”
