religious broadcast playout services

TV Visjon Norge has upgraded its PlayBox Technology AirBox broadcast playout and channel branding system to the latest-generation Neo series.

Recently announced enhancements to the Neo series include new control features, expanded file handling capabilities, greater input and output connectivity and Microsoft Windows 10 compatibility. Other features include streaming input compatibility with HTTP(S), UDP, RTMP, MMS(H) and YouTube, plus streaming output support for UDP, RTSP and ATSC. The enhancements have been implemented within the established graphic interface.

AirBox Neo supports UHD, HD and SD playout from a single server. Designed for 24/7 unattended operation, it can also be operated manually, including the ability to handle live-to-air throughput.

Don Ash, president, PlayBox Technology, said: “TV Visjon Norge was the first Scandinavian Christian television network to air 24 hours a day and is a long-established AirBox user. The network’s programmes are very well produced and highly innovative, making full use of the facilities available within the PlayBox Technology digital workflow. TV Visjon Norge expanded its standard-definition system to high-definition in 2015 when it also launched a Gothenburg-based Swedish channel.”

Ben Gunkel, Chief Commercial Officer, PlayBox Technology, added: “This upgrade to Neo was motivated primarily by the network’s need to integrate a recently acquired Ross Video NK router. Incoming content is stored as files on a shared central archive. Title graphics and scheduling are all performed within the Neo system and then transmitted direct from one of four AirBox playout servers.”

The PlayBox Technology system at TV Visjon Norge is supported locally by Engstroms AB.

The enhanced Neo series, alongside the latest additions to the CloudAir cloud-based SaaS offering, will make their first public appearance at BVE 2017.
