Playbox Technology UK has launched AirBox Mega ICX, a new version of its playout and streaming software.
AirBox provides automated content playout for broadcasters, online streaming services, cable headends and corporate users.
The new version is developed as a virtualised software application which can be run on dedicated hardware as a channel in a box, or in the public or private cloud. According to Playbox, it is also ideal for remote operation over any secure internet connection.
“This is a brand new integrated playout engine built from the ground up, but when we designed it we drew on all our 17 years’ experience at the top of the playout software market,” said Philip Neighbour, COO at PlayBox Technology UK. “We talk to broadcasters and streamers all around the world, and we have brought their thoughts and ideas to this design.
“It does exactly what is needed, without complications or risks,” he added. “And thanks to the distributive, virtualised architecture, systems can be tailored to specific needs quickly and easily.”
The software supports native, secure and low-latency streaming via SRT and webRTC.
