Life TV Asia recently initiated an infrastructure upgrade. At the heart of the installations, the Marikina-based broadcaster chose to install PlayBox Neo’s Channel-in-a-Box solution at the recommendation of systems integrator 8BTSI Corporation.

‘We have invested in two PlayBox Neo 1U Dual Xeon Channel-in-a-Box servers to provide full transmission via terrestrial digital, direct-to-home satellite and cable,’ explained Life TV Asia station engineer Rexor Garcia. ‘They provide the full channel branding, broadcast playout and social media playout capabilities we need to transmit live and scheduled content in standard definition and high definition. It is a great system, integrating easily with our existing equipment and giving us the freedom to expand our facilities easily if or when needed to support additional channels. Our staff find the PlayBox Neo graphic interface very easy to work with, providing all the information needed to support each phase of the playout process without pushing them into mental overload. The GUI is also easy on the eyes which is very important when you are monitoring display screens during a long duty session.’

Loreto Dela Cruz Jr, CEO at 8BTSI Corporation, discussed how Life TV Asia chose his company as technical partner on this project and why his team recommended PlayBox Neo. ‘The system we designed and configured incorporates TitleBox Neo graphics and text management which allows the playout team to produce all the logos, titles and onscreen scripts they need when scheduling programmes, creating promos or finessing existing content,’ he said. ‘Also included is SocialMediaBox Neo which provides a complete toolset for coordinating comments from multiple social networking feeds. Comments can be selected and moderated from a variety of different social media outlets, integrating sources such as Facebook and Twitter on a single feed for transmission. SocialMediaBox Neo is also very useful for live television shows which produce auxiliary-screen pages for viewer feedback. The custom feed can be output as an RSS feed and used in other systems, or sent to TitleBox for on-air presentation. Direct “push” control to the TitleBox character generator allows better live interaction.’
