Major features driving PlayBox Technology to this decision include the full control of all SDI signal components including VANC (closed captions, Teletext, WSS, timecode), HANC, AES3 audio (including AC-3) and raw SDI frame. The DELTACAST boards also provide automatic bypass relays controlled by power availability, or by a watchdog. Embedding and de-embedding of audio (AES3) and timecode (VITC, LTC, ATC) are also available.

“We are pleased to see that PlayBox now supports all our families of boards in their high-end broadcast applications and that the work has been easy thanks to our unified VideoMasterHD SDK.
