Tring TV, one of Albania's leading broadcasters and IPTV service-providers, has upgraded its playout infrastructure to a combination of PlayBox Technology Neo servers and CloudAir online services. The integrated system provides all the resources needed to deliver 27 television channels. CloudAir integrates very easily and effectively with the AirBox Neo product family; the benefits of that integration include advanced quality control and greater accessibility for content management and playlist preparation. The system is highly secure and gives Tring TV one of the world's most modern playout environments.
CloudAir is a development of the EdgeBox remote playout concept, which is used by many broadcasters around the world. Core software running on a proven server is located at the broadcaster's choice of remote playout center, typically a 24/7 service provider in whichever town, city, country, or continent the broadcaster prefers. Management of program schedules, ad sales, media management, and monitoring are all performed in the usual way on the broadcaster's premises, usually at its headquarters, via a fire-walled IP link.
Available exclusively from PlayBox Technology and its regional partners, the PlayBox Neo suite is based around the AirBox Neo playout server. Designed for 24/7 unattended operation, it can also be operated manually – including the ability to handle live-to-air throughput. AirBox Neo supports UHD, HD, and SD in a single server.
