PlayBox introduces ‘no limits’ compliance recording

New at NAB2008, PlayBox’s CaptureBox Compliance Recorder expands with version 2.0. There are no practical restrictions of format or bit rate, so any broadcast can be recorded, including those with AVC H.264 and WMV coding, complementing the established MPEG-1 and MPEG-2 capabilities. Multichannel broadcasters also can benefit from the economy and convenience of recording many of their outputs into a single multichannel-capable compliance recorder box.

The choice of input types now extends to support for FireWire, ASI and IP sources. The inclusion of ASI/IP means that an ASI input can be transformed into a live IP stream, allowing remote compliance viewing. A wide range of record bit rates now cover all broadcast requirements. The maximum per-channel MPEG-2 bit rate has been lifted to 50Mb/s from the original 3Mb/s in the earlier version.

More new features allow easier operation with more capabilities built into the recorder. These include burning time, date and channel ID information into the captured pictures and scheduling regular capture events on a daily or weekly basis.
