Its AirBox Neo-20 and Cloud2TV offerings have surpassed a total installed base of 19,000 branding and playout channels in Q3 2021.
Despite the Covid challenges during 2021, PlayBox Neo’s founder and CEO Pavlin Rahnev said the company saw sustained demand for its range of television channel playout and channel branding equipment and services throughout the year.
Rahnev stated that 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.
He added: “We have been busy on projects ranging from system updates and expansion to the complete renovation of playout infrastructure. Demand for our AirBox Neo-20 and Cloud2TV offerings surpassed a total installed base of 19,000 branding and playout channels in Q3. Updates to our 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, the company anticipate increased demand for software-as-a-service solutions such as SaaS-based Cloud2TV. The SaaS approach gives broadcasters the ability to respond within days or even hours when called upon to add new programme streams.
Rahnev concluded: “I would like to express my thanks to our customers for their ongoing loyalty to the PlayBox Neo brand. Also to our distribution partners all over the world, our product development colleagues, sales, marketing and administration team. Their combined effort has sustained PlayBox Neo as the world leader in broadcast playout. 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.”
