Hatfield, Hertfordshire, UK:  PlayBox Technology will demonstrate the latest refinements to its server-based Neo and SaaS-based CloudAir broadcast playout solutions at CABSAT in Dubai, March 21-23. Exhibiting on stand G1-20, the company will be represented by CEO Pavlin Rahnev and colleagues from PlayBox Technology ME Ltd.


"PlayBox Technology has a very strong customer base in the Middle East and throughout Africa," comments PlayBox Technology CEO Pavlin Rahnev. "The focus of our CABSAT demonstrations will be on how easily Neo modules can be combined to handle a practically unlimited number of channels, any configuration of languages and any level of third-party product interfacing. Above all we will be promoting the operational simplicity of the PlayBox Technology user interface. We will be demonstrating major enhancements to many elements of the Neo product range and to CloudAir, including the ability to integrate the two solutions into an extremely powerful hybrid. Neo gives station managers the confidence and security of owning and operating a complete on-site playout system. CloudAir allows a remotely located playout service to be controlled via a secure internet connection. The hybrid approach, which is becoming increasingly popular, offers the best of both technologies including the fast expandability and flexible funding of a SaaS-based remote system."

"Broadcasters are looking for the greatest possible flexibility in the way they work, whether for distribution via terrestrial transmitters, satellite or the internet," says PlayBox Technology president Don Ash. "That includes the ability to launch new channels in UHD if or when they choose to do so. AirBox Neo supports UHD, HD and SD playout from a single server. It is designed for round-the-clock automated operation while retaining the freedom to transmit live content at any time. We will also be promoting the latest version of ProductionAirBox Neo. This is a variant of AirBox Neo designed for broadcast news, sports and live production. New features include enhanced playlist performance, faster-than-ever operational response, enhanced audio quality, audio media trimming, XKeys control compatibility, NDI protocol compatibility and support for 4K UHD at 50p, 59.94p and 60p frame rates."
