PlayBox gives NAB preview

PlayBox Technology, the Channel-in-a-Box manufacturer, is presenting its full range of products and services at NAB 2013. The introduction of ScheduleBox expands the company’s established range of products and modular options to meet the increasingly diverse applications for today’s playout channel needs. Vassil Lefterov (pictured), PlayBox Technology CEO, commented, “From start-up TV to national broadcasters, customers want solutions, not boxes. At one level expanding our line of modules is a step in the right direction. At another, with our global 24/7 customer support and the Broadcast Systems Group, we are now providing customers with an A-to-Z service for a wide range of their technical broadcast requirements. These are the driving forces of our continuing expansion.” The new ScheduleBox is a web-based client/server solution for creating and managing advanced schedules. Operating within a web browser, the user-friendly GUI handles template-based TV broadcast planning, offering straightforward management of single or multiple TV channels. Programme schedules with daily, weekly or monthly views, and programme block management per TV channel, are available. Gaps and overlaps are easily identified in the programme blocks. Monitoring and control of the different block statuses, such as Draft, New, Ready for publishing, is available at a glance. ScheduleBox, designed for easier control and information gathering, as well as better organisation, suits any TV channel supporting multi-format schedules with predefined and repeated blocks as part of the programme schema. PlayBox Technology will be demonstrating all its solutions that include: AirBox, CaptureBox, TitleBox, ListBox, DataBox, SafeBox, QCBox, SubtitleBox, ScheduleBox, and more, as well as fully integrated workflow solutions including: EdgeBox, AdBox, TimeShiftBox, TrafficBox, PlayBox MAM and a technology preview of the future product NewsRoomBox. N5435
