The world of electronics and telecommunications is neatly summarised by a single phrase: 'Change is the only constant'. This is pretty common currency today but the guy I first heard it from, at an NAB Convention some decades back, either chose or forgot to acknowledge his source. It is much older than our beloved industry and was first expressed by a Greek philosopher, Heraclitus, about 2,500 years ago.
In light of the inaccurate information currently circulating in the marketplace, we want to take this opportunity to set the record straight and ensure that every single one of our highly valued stakeholders continues to receive the unique service offered by PlayBox Technology Limited.
2015 has proved a landmark year for PlayBox Technology with more than 16,000 playout and branding channels round the world now powered by our range of products. We now have an over 30 per cent share of the total worldwide playout channel market and a far higher proportion of the channel-in-a-box sector.
Don Ash becomes President, Pavlin Rahnev Chief Executive Officer, Phillip Neighbour Chief Operating Officer, Ananth Sam Director Solution Sales & Customer Care, and Ben Gunkel Chief Commercial Officer.
