AirBox Neo-20


Via its scalable, extremely robust and reliable multi-format parallel output playout/streaming engine, AirBox Neo-20 can easily mix a variety of media files in one playlist and provides multiple SDI/IP streaming UHD/HD/SD outputs simultaneously.

Endless freedom of operation - any changes to the playlist during on-air sessions are possible! Media can be trimmed, edited or repositioned. Live productions are streamlined to allow insertion and/or execution of various events or live streams into the playlist.

For automated playout/streaming AirBox Neo-20 allows playlist scheduling for weeks ahead. Gaps/Time overlaps are automatically resolved to ensure continuous operation even when conflicting timed events are present. Special facilities ensure uninterrupted operation if content files or even entire schedules are missing or misplaced.
