BVE 2017: PlayBox Technology will demonstrate enhancements to its server-based Neo and SaaS-based CloudAir broadcast playout systems at BVE.

New additions to single server playout system AirBox Neo include streaming input compatibility with HTTP(S), UDP, RTMP, MMS(H) and YouTube plus streaming output support for UDP, RTSP and ATSC.

Functions added to TitleBox Neo on-air graphics and character generator include support for the NewTek Tricaster NDI protocol and an API plugin for Blackmagic DeckLink audio/video capture and playback cards.

Enhancements to the CaptureBox Neo multichannel ingest server include a new streaming input compatible with HTTPS, HTTP, UDP, RTMP, MMS, MMSH and YouTube.

CaptureBox Neo also now supports the HEVC file format and direct ingest from Sony’s XAVC 4K recording format.

“The purpose of the Neo series enhancements is to ensure that the core AirBox Neo server and the wide range of supporting Neo modules maintain their momentum as the most versatile, efficient and reliable content branding, scheduling and playout system currently available,” said PlayBox Technology chief executive Pavlin Rahnev.

“They include new control features, expanded file handling capabilities, greater input and output connectivity and Microsoft Windows 10 compatibility.

“The enhancements have all been implemented within the informative and intuitive graphic interface which is familiar to operators around the world.”
