Thursday, September 25, 2014

PlayBox Technology celebrated its 15th anniversary at IBC2014 in September plus the delivery of over 15,000 television playout and branding channels. PlayBox Technology pioneered the Channel-in-a-Box approach which empowered many broadcasters to advance from video tape to file-based playout along with delivering high-quality dynamic interactive graphics.

"15,000 channel sales is a phenomenal achievement which has left our competitors trailing far behind," comments Don Ash, Managing Partner and Director, Sales. "It is also a great tribute to the skill and dedication of the entire PlayBox Technology team, from software development and technical integration right through to sales and engineering support. PlayBox Technology pioneered the transition from high-cost rigidly-defined dedicated hardware to the much more affordable and versatile server-based systems

"The key to success in this business is to have total control over both the hardware and the software, giving our customers the security that comes from sourcing a total solution from a single manufacturer. We deliver 24/7 reliability to every playout and branding channel. Our pre-sales and post-sales support are absolutely top grade which what broadcasters rightly expect when operating round-the-clock transmission services every day of the year.

"PlayBox Technology solutions offer user interfaces which are effortless to operate and provide exactly the information needed to perform a specific task. Operators can easily switch between live and pre-scheduled mode, making practical use of automation while retaining the creative freedom broadcasters appreciate.

"From a single channel playout server to a multi-channel turnkey broadcast centre, PlayBox Technology offers exactly the right solution."
