Despite the challenges caused by the Covid-19 pandemic during 2021, the PlayBox Neo range of television channel playout and channel branding equipment and services witnessed sustained demand.
Orders were particularly strong in the telecommunications sector as major service providers around the world responded to the increasing popularity of terrestrial, satellite and streamed television.
“We have been busy on projects ranging from system updates and expansion to the complete renovation of playout infrastructure,” said PlayBox Neo’s Founder & CEO Pavlin Rahnev.
“Demand for our AirBox Neo-20 and Cloud2TV offerings surpassed a total installed base of 19,000 branding and playout channels in the third quarter of 2021 alone, sustaining our position as the global leader in this product and service sector.
Updates to the company’s Channel-in-a-Box, AirBox Neo-20 and Capture Suite were announced during 2021, adding new features designed to make TV channel management, branding and playout easier than ever.
“Based on customer feedback, we anticipate increased demand for software-as-a-service solutions such as our established and proven SaaS-based Cloud2TV,” said Rahnev. “The SaaS approach gives broadcasters the ability to respond within days or even hours when called upon to add new program streams.
“New things to come are scheduled for 2022, and will be revealed as the year progresses.
“As ever, these will be evolutionary to complement our current range of products and services, whether installed onsite or offsite, owned, leased, pay-as-you-go or operated in any desired hybrid combination.”
