Philippine Broadcasters Warm to CloudAir

Jul 25, 2018
BTSi Open Days

PlayBox Technology reports a highly successful series of presentations to broadcaster media specialists attending a series of Open Days organised by Philippine distribution partner BTSi. The events were held in the national capital, Quezon City, Monday July 11 through Wednesday July 13.

"We made a 90-minute presentation each day to an estimated total of about 150 people," reports PlayBox Technology Regional Sales Director Iulian Ionescu. "The subject was CloudAir: a next-generation ecosystem for IP channel playout."

"We began by explaining exactly what is meant by 'the cloud' and the three most common ownership models: public, private and hybrid. Then into the various service models: Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS) and of course the most widely known Software as a Service (SaaS)."

"From there we progressed into CloudAir itself, its ease of operation and its many advantages over traditional playout. The presentation was very well received and proved a great opportunity to meet with many of the region's leading business people. Our thanks to BTSi for their excellent organisational skills which helped to make the event a great success."
