Life TV Asia, based at Marikina City in the Philippines, has chosen PlayBox Neo Channel-in-a-Box as the core of its broadcast playout system.
The new installation forms the core of an infrastructure upgrade designed to maximise the station's operating efficiency.
“We have invested in two PlayBox Neo 1U Dual Xeon channel-in-a-box servers to provide full transmitting via terrestrial digital, direct-to-home satellite and cable,” says Life TV Asia Station Engineer Rexor B. Garcia.
“They provide the full channel branding, broadcast playout and social media playout capabilities we need to transmit live and scheduled content in standard definition and high definition. It is a great system, integrating easily with our existing equipment and giving us the freedom to expand our facilities easily if or when needed to support additional channels. Our staff find the PlayBox Neo graphic interface very easy to work with, providing all the information needed to support each phase of the playout process without pushing them into mental overload. The GUI is also easy on the eyes which is very important when you are monitoring display screens during a long duty session.”
