Thursday, May 30, 2013

PlayBox Technology has supplied and installed new playout systems for three Christian Television Network stations in the USA. This was delivered as a turnkey project that also included on-site training.

Two of the new playout channels are running at CTN’s stations WRXY in Fort Myers, Florida and WHTN in Nashville, Tennessee. A further new system is located at CTN’s corporate headquarters at Clearwater, Florida. Here, installed in the new HD master control room, the PlayBox Technology equipment replaces the old standard definition system, running two television channels as well as controlling a Utah 64x64 routing system.

The PlayBox Technology systems include AirBox playout and automation channels, TitleBox on-air graphics and TitleBox Prep, NAS storage, SafeBox content management, CaptureBox ingest, QCBox quality control, ListBox off-line offline scheduler and list editor.

“We have been very impressed with the quality of service after the sale, as well as the training that we have received,” comments Paul Garber – Assistant to the President of CTN. “PlayBox Technology has gone over and above our expectations to assure our satisfaction. The hardware is technically sound and the software is well thought out and user friendly. We plan on adding more in the future.”

Since ‘humble’ beginnings of 33 years ago, CTN is a major producer of Christian Television Programming. And today, the good news of Christ has expanded from reaching a few thousand people in 1979, to now extend to millions of homes all over North America, Hawaii, into parts of Mexico, Central and South America, Europe and the Islands of the Caribbean.
Christian television has 15 television channels and three satellite networks.
