Trans7 adds to AirBox neo line-up
INDONESIA: Trans7 has added to its broadcast playout capabilities with the purchase of a new Production AirBox Neo from PlayBox Technology. The television network, which is a part of the TransCorp media group, had already been operating with AirBox Neo solutions for a number of years and the new system has been installed at its headquarters in Jakarta.
‘This new system integrates closely with the network's existing infrastructure,’ explained Iulian Ionescu APAC regional sales director at PlayBox. ‘Trans7 has performed broadcast playout with AirBox servers very successfully for many years, all of them recently upgraded to the latest-generation Neo series.’
‘We find the AirBox platform easy to use and highly reliable. Our existing AirBox servers were assigned to Studio One which is used for production of interstitials and Studio Two which is equipped for green-screen virtual set presentations,’ said Agung Wicaksono, technical manager at Trans7. ‘This latest addition is dedicated to Studio Three which is designed for use in a multiplicity of roles. The recent upgrade to Production AirBox Neo has added useful extra facilities including the ability to supplement our present HD and SD transmissions with a UHD channel if or when market conditions make that appropriate. PlayBox Technology Indonesia engineer Dandy Kurniawan and his team give us excellent aftersales support which makes us very confident in using PlayBox Technology solutions. We are already in discussion both for system expansion and backup.’
