The TV news channel Bulgaria On Air has chosen PlayBox Technology NewsAir as its platform for news preparation workflow. NewsAir is a complete news solution that brings together all the media used for today's fast moving news presentations. It organizes live or recorded news content such as video, texts, stills, news agency stories, phone calls, CGs, graphics, etc., for inclusion in the bulletins.
PlayBox Technology announces that Dega Broadcast Systems has ordered 10 x TimeShiftBox HD media delay servers with TitleBox HD interactive CG and graphics. Ten TimeShiftBox have been ordered as a part of a project for a Major UK broadcaster for installation in their central equipment area.
PlayBox Technology smashed all its records at IBC2011 with a 50% increase in visitors over last year and had the best show since the first participation in 2002. During the five days of the exhibition the many new prospective customers and our existing clients constantly occupied all 44 seats and six demo areas on the 72 sq. m stand. All could discuss business and see demos of our latest technology and workflow solutions.
The requirement for quality control grew up in the early days of television and depended on measurement instruments to check the video and audio going to air. This T&M made prefect sense when equipment was analogue and, to an extent, has continued into the digital era, however the needs of the digital file based workflow environment are very different.
PlayBox Technology has reached the milestone of 10,000 playout and branding systems delivered into over 120 countries. These operate in configurations ranging from single channel-in-a-box servers to multichannel turnkey broadcast centres. “The longest day of the year seemed very short as we celebrated a fantastic achievement with thanks to all PlayBox Technology staff, partners, dealers and system integrators, both past and present that have contributed to this extraordinary achievement,” says Vassil Lefterov, CEO, PlayBox Technology.
