We identified the PlayBox Neo series as the ideal engine to power our OTT channel, www.itiswritten.tv. Neo gives us the freedom to transmit live as well as provide on demand content so viewers can choose to watch what they want at whatever time works best for them. We had outgrown the capabilities of our existing third-party system so we have assigned that to a back-up role.

The challenge we faced was to find a versatile, efficient and operator-friendly solution that would integrate easily with our newsroom. We made a careful study of all the playout solutions currently on the market and identified PlayBox Neo as the logical choice given its long experience, proven track record in technical support and very wide user base. ProductionAirBox Neo gives us a wide range of media manipulation and delivery tools.
Luis Palacios, Northwestern University's Broadcast Production Manager
We have invested in 15 complete PlayBox Neo servers and four Cloud2TV nodes. They were the logical choice for this project as they are very operator-friendly, space-efficient, reliable and easy to maintain.
Kushtrim Gojani, Artmotion CEO
We required a solution which would integrate easily with our existing infrastructure. The primary requirements were a robust operating platform, user-friendly control, easy expandability and good technical support. PlayBox Neo's Channel-in-a-Box was the logical choice given its proven success at many leading broadcast networks and playout service-providers around the world.
Mohamed Samir, Nilesat Broadcast Manager
The reliability and structural compactness of AirBox Neo are greatly appreciated by our playout centre staff. One of the great strengths of PlayBox Technology is that it provides efficient round-the-clock technical support. This is very rarely needed but adds greatly to our operational confidence and the level of service we are able to give our customers.
Ghorban Shirzad BHS Telecom' CTO
AirBox Neo is easy to operate, versatile and backed by very good technical support from PlayBox Technology Thailand (...) The new system is performing excellently and proving very helpful to our business. We already operate three satellite television channels. This new addition offers a variety of Hollywood content on multi-platform devices via broadband mobile networks. It is our first OTT channel and I am confident we will be introducing more.
Jatuphol Suteesathaporn- STG Mediaplex CEO
OLYMPUSAT TELECOM, USA
Olympusat now uses PlayBox Technology to put our original programming channels on the air via direct broadcast, satellite or fibre networks, internationally and domestically. We have used PlayBox to successfully launch our suite of 10 Ultra HD Plex Spanish-language channels in March on Verizon FiOS.

Tring TV, Albania
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.
Armand Selimaj, Tring TV Technical manager
I find PlayBox Technology very valuable and a very reliable system. We started with 2 TV channels and now have 20 TV Channels playing from 20 AirBox servers. Other systems are available, but they do not specifically meet my requirements to the level of PlayBox.

Doug Warner, Director of Engineering, answering the question "Why PlayBox Technology?" “It was a combination of cost, the ability to use existing content and the integrated automation. PlayBox was one of the few systems that could do all of these.”
