PlayBox Neo’s US Director of Operations, Van Duke, reports a well-attended and highly successful 2018 SMPTE Florida Technical Conference & Exhibition, held at the Hilton Altamonte Springs from 7:30 am Wednesday December 12th to 5:30 pm Thursday December 13th.
“Now in its second year following the December 2017 inaugural, SMPTE Florida is firmly established as the state’s premiere film and television industry show,” Van comments. “The event is now firmly on the map and a great credit to the society’s Florida section which managed the conference, exhibition and accompanying social activities to perfection.”
“We provided full support as an exhibitor, promoting our latest PlayBox Neo AirBox and CloudAir solutions. These can be scaled from a single automated playout channel up to a large multichannel system with optional CDN connectivity and secure remote access media asset management.”
“An impressively high number of delegates attended the show, many expressing strong interest in the solutions we have to offer. A key element in many discussions was the flexibility of PlayBox Neo AirBox and CloudAir in terms of SD/HD/UHD resolution plus the support our solutions provide for SDI, DVB/ATSC compliant streams and commonly used web-based formats.”
“Among visitors to the PlayBox Neo booth were many of our longest established customers and systems integration partners. The show was also a very useful venue for discussions on new projects. For sure, we will be back at SMPTE Florida 2019.”
PlayBox Neo (www.playboxneo.com), building on nearly 20 years of successful innovation, pioneered the development of high-efficiency server-based and cloud-based playout to support every scale and type of one-to-many communication.
