SGTV transitions to digital playout with PlayBox

Seminole Government Television (SGTV), Seminole County, FL, has transformed its playout from analog to digital with a system from PlayBox Technology. The requirements included a soft transition to the new technology as well as fully redundant backup and emergency broadcasting.

PlayBox supplied a system comprising CaptureBox for ingest, AirBox video playout and graphics preparation and presentation with TitleBox — all installed in master control. With an emphasis on security of on-air playout, the configuration is fully redundant with backups of all three workstations housed in the hardened Emergency Operations Center 6mi from the main station. A 6TB NAS located at the station offers central storage, while each AirBox has 1.2TB of storage per channel.

Launched in 1998, SGTV is a government and education channel operated by Seminole County and broadcast 24/7 on Bright House Networks in Seminole County where 100,000 homes are connected. It is also streamed via its Web site www.seminolecountyfl.gov/cid/sgtv.
