PlayBox Technology Powers TVPool Thailand’s New DTV Channels
BANGKOK, THAILAND—Thai broadcaster
TV Pool has upgraded its PlayBox Technology transmission control and playout
system to allow high-definition delivery of Thai TV (Ch. 17) on the country’s
terrestrial digital television platform. Three additional channels also
received new HD playout systems. Currently transmitting in SD, Thai TV (Ch. 27)
and Local TV (Chs. 15 and 25) can start transmitting in high definition whenever
necessary. The system is located at TV Pool’s headquarters in Bangkok.
AirBox is a universal SD/HD content playout and streaming server designed for
continuous unattended operation. Playlist order can be changed on-the-fly using
commands such as skip-to-next or jump. Changes are performed without stopping
the current playout session. Live productions are facilitated by a Live Show
clipboard, which allows insertion and/or execution of various events or live
streams. AirBox accepts formats such as MPEG1/2/H.264, HDV and DV streams from
practically every known production platform.
TitleBox delivers on-air graphics which can be controlled interactively.
Customers can preconfigure the templates to match their requirements. TitleBox
provides total control during on-air session, including text selection, running
speed and transitions.
