América TeVé, America's largest independent Spanish language television station, has invested in three four-channel PlayBox Technology Production AirBox Neo servers as the core of a major technical upgrade at its studio headquarters in Miami.
Just over 10 years ago, we introduced a system which gave broadcast channel operators the option of hosting their playout servers at the distant end of an internet connection rather than on-site. All they needed on site was a computer capable of running a web browser plus a reasonably fast internet link for uploading file-based audiovisual content to the host service-provider. It was a great success and is still a current product.
"Competition for viewer attention between terrestrial, satellite and online-streaming delivery will continue to increase during 2018," comments PlayBox Technology CEO Pavlin Rahnev. "Which route the output from our products takes during delivery to viewers is largely academic. Our role in the workflow is to ensure that all content, interstitials and region-specific commercials are safely integrated into the broadcaster's transmission schedule, ready for fully automated or manually supervised playout.
