Playbox launches DVB series for telcos at NAB2007

PlayBox Technology’s DVB Series comprises a group of new products that addresses the needs of telco operations and satellite uplink centers for their rebroadcast and NVOD clients. This includes new IP streaming and ASI interfaces that work directly with DVB-ASI streams.

The IP/ASI interface card plugs into appropriate existing PlayBox equipment to create CaptureBox Streamer for ingest, AirBox Streamer for playout and a multiple ASI input DVB Muxer to combine playout streams into a single ASI-MPTS (Multiple Program Transport Stream).

Satellite uplink centers that add local baseband content into downlinked streams could achieve this with a CaptureBox Streamer, AirBox Streamer and a DVB Muxer combination — automation being handled within the AirBox. The NVOD model, where the content is not constantly changing, can be built around just a single AirBox Streamer that can support up to 256 IP streams and a DVB Muxer.
