PlayBox equips Romanian TV channel

Bucharest broadcaster Giga TV has equipped PlayBox systems for its news and entertainment programming. The TV channel purchased four AirBox HD playout servers, two TitleBox graphics servers for CG and graphics, two Dual-Channel ingest servers, one storage server and a NewsAir system. “We chose PlayBox Technology for its robust, reliable and cost-effective HD playout, graphics, ingest and news systems,” said Alex Selu, IT director for Giga TV. “The full integration between NewsAir and AirBox allows the use of the same tools for automated content management. NewsAir organises live or recorded news content such as video, text, stills, news agency stories, phone calls, CGs and graphics for inclusion in the news bulletins.” Future plans for Giga TV include the launch of HD channels and adding a fully functional PlayBox MAM solution. Andrei Gheorghe, country manager for PlayBox Technology Romania, said: “The fully integrated media asset management system with post production integration and MAM clients will help us to better organize our video, audio, photograph, and documents throughout the facility,”  PlayBox provided training for all systems, with particular focus on playout, news and workflow best practices.
