BVE 2016: PlayBox Technology will debut its CloudAir playout and streaming platform to UK broadcasters at BVE.
CloudAir is a unified workflow environment that can be tailored to provide capabilities including ingest, source transcoding, quality control, media asset management, scheduling, playout and transmission.
It can be used locally or remotely via a standard HTML web browser.
“CloudAir offers a gateway through which new television channels can be established without the usual preliminary investment in playout infrastructure,” said Don Ash, president of PlayBox Technology.
“Channel proprietors are then free to invest their start-up capital in creating or acquiring content from which in turn they can build up a healthy revenue stream.
“From an operational perspective, CloudAir allows new television channels to be established in little more time than it takes to make a phone call to the service provider.
“This is particularly important to anyone creating transient OTT channels supporting a short-running programme series such as the Olympics.”
