PlayBox Technology demonstrated the latest refinements to its server-based Neo IP/SDI playout solutions and CloudAir virtual broadcast ecosystem at the annual KBP Top Level Management Conference in Manila, November 15-17.
"The conference is organised by the Association of Philippine Broadcasters and is now is its 43rd year," says PlayBox Technology Regional Sales Director Iulian Ionescu. "Exhibiting alongside our local partner, BTSI Corporation, we were very pleased by the level of interest shown in both Neo and CloudAir. KBP delegates were also impressed by the ability to deploy hybrid solutions combining the strengths of server-based Neo and cloud-based CloudAir workflow.
"We promoted the new features launched at NAB and IBC this year plus the recently introduced PlayBox Neo TS Time Delay server which is ideal for for single or multichannel time zone shift and disaster-recovery applications," adds Asia Pacific Country Manager Desmond Goh. "This was demonstrated as part of a complete channel branding, scheduling and playout system centred on the AirBox Neo platform."
"Broadcasters in the Philippines face the same commercial challenges as their colleagues around the world," comments PlayBox Technology President Don Ash. "Modularity is a key element of all our products, enabling our customers to specify exactly the features they need for their current business model while retaining the freedom to add new capabilities or extra channels quickly and easily."
