PBT EU delivers integrated playout solution to Canarias TV

PBT EU empowers VIDEORREPORT at Cañarías TV by integrating ADDITELECOM’s teleprompter TVPROMPT and AirBox Neo 19 to form an impressive playout solution


For immediate release – 10 November 2020, Madrid, Spain  Established systems integrator PBT EU has recently delivered a ground-breaking broadcasting playout solution to Cañarías TV’s in-house production company VIDEORREPORT. The broadcaster’s capabilities have been significantly upgraded by this development enhanced by PBT EU’s integration of ADDITELECOM’s new teleprompter software TVPROMPT with the latest version of the PlayBox Neo version 19 series.

The PBT EU team have effectively created an advanced integrated solution in partnership with ADDITELECOM. The technology ensures that wherever the AirBox Neo 19 playout list is used by the television station’s production company VIDEORREPORT at Cañarías TV, it can constantly and automatically be updated within TVPROMPT’s playlist in real time. This innovative solution has considerably boosted VIDEORREPORT’s capacity and has equipped the studio facility with a fast-paced infrastructure that now allows a single technical operator to speedily control both systems, send-off videos and immediately be able to update the teleprompter ladder automatically.


ADDITELCOM’s TVPROMPT teleprompter systems were fine-tuned with specific remote-control hardware and 19”size camera prompter systems for a complete powerful broadcasting solution customized to suit Cañarías TV’s specific requirements.



In addition, the two integrated AirBox Neo 19 systems function as a backup and a second playout platform which includes rundowns that operate in parallel mode. AirBox Neo 19 is designed for 24/7 unattended operation and can also be operated manually, including the ability to handle live-to-air throughput. Parallel outputs enable the running of two or more SDI or IP streaming SD/HD feeds simultaneously. Changes to the playlist can be made during an on-air session. Clips in the playlist, except for the one currently playing, can be trimmed, edited, or re-positioned. The playback order can be performed seamlessly without stopping the current playout session. Live productions are facilitated by a live show clipboard which allows insertion or execution of various events or live streams. AirBox Neo 19 supports UHD, HD and SD playout from a single server.


PBT EU’s long-standing and successful IT partner ADDITELECOM has been developing state-of-the-art teleprompter equipment and systems under the brand name TVPROMPT since 2002. With over 60 products in TVPROMPT systems designed for studios, stages, conferences, universities, training centers and so forth, a thousand units in domestic and international markets designed have already been snapped up.


PBT EU’s CEO Ivanka Vassileva states, “We have an excellent relationship with our long-term partner ADDITELECOM, and excited about them recently integrating the latest PBT EU products with their teleprompter system TVPROMPT to VIDEORREPORT within Cañarías TV in Spain. This remarkable project has resulted in a complete all-embracing solution for broadcasters. The close partnership that we enjoy, also strengthens the system integration capabilities of both PBT EU and ADDITELECOM, and brings to the Spanish speaking broadcast community, a proven solution that supports news and live shows –  now and into the future.”


General Manager of ADDITELECOM José Luis Lajara adds, “PBT EU provided an outstanding solution that elevated and “future-proofed” Cañarías TV’s abilities to the highest level. PBT EU is well-positioned in the TV channels sector, and we work extremely hard to ensure that important customers such as Cañarías TV can choose the best solution that secures their technological progress. This results in a positive outcome that ultimately delivers a better viewing service and experience for their audience.”
