Running parallel with ConnectTech Asia, the combined events attracted representatives from the broadcast and telco markets within the core APAC region and wider.
“Broadcast Asia is essentially an action replay of the April NAB Show in Las Vegas, which is good in reducing unnecessary travel,” says PlayBox Neo CEO Pavlin Rahnev. “The APAC region itself is continuing to develop strongly in terms of investment in both broadcast and telco infrastructures. We exhibited the latest versions of our established Channel-in-a-Box modular channel branding and playout product range and debuted the latest version of our software-as-a-service based offering: Cloud2TV. These two product ranges give PlayBox Neo customers the freedom to invest in their own fully independent on-site systems, which many channel managers still like to do, or operate at any desired level on their own choice of hardware platform in whatever location they prefer.”
“We demonstrated our two product ranges as independent solutions and as a versatile hybrid which can be scaled easily to allow fast startup of long-term program channels as well as event-specific red-button channels,” adds PlayBox Neo APAC General Manager Desmon Goh. “The hybrid approach is also ideal for storing production assets, allowing these to be remotely accessed quickly and easily by authorized staff via a secure IP connection. We also promoted the effectiveness of using Cloud2TV as the core of a highly efficient offsite recovery facility.”
PlayBox Neo building on nearly 20 years of successful innovation, pioneered the development of high-efficiency server-based and cloud-based playout to support every scale and type of one-to-many communication. PlayBox Neo AirBox and Cloud2TV today power over 18,500 TV and branding channels in more than 120 countries. Users include national and international broadcasters, start-up TV channels, webcasters, interactive TV and music channels, film channels, remote TV channels, corporate information channels and disaster recovery channels.
