PlayBox Neo’s Multi Playout Manager (MPM) broadcast playout monitoring and control system is now equipped with a new user interface and integrated playout preview.
Stanislav Petkov, PlayBox Neo’s CTO, explained, “The enhanced MPM builds on two decades of experience which we have gained in IP-based system control. Newly optimised performance combined with fully integrated playout preview makes remote control and monitoring more efficient and easier than ever.
“At MPM’s front-end is a new web-based user interface with an eye-friendly dark background, designed to match the GUIs used across the entire PlayBox Neo series.”
PlayBox Neo MPM allows multiple AirBox Neo-20 channels to be operated via IP remotely from any place in the world, home, distant office or any network-connected location. Control features accessible within MPM include on-the-fly playlist changes, manual triggering of events, user-configurable presets for pushbutton access to logos, as well as IP router control and subsidiary tools such as graphics/text control.
User/operator management permissions can be assigned at various levels from viewer to administrator. A built-in Web-based playlist editor enables users to create future playlists. MPM also provides support for custom metadata from AirBox Neo-20 and includes a library module for fast access to media asset management (MAM).
Media files can also be moved by drag-and-drop from library to playlist or processed into multiple folders with customised metadata settings such as category and folder colour.
