PlayBox Neo Reports Successful FOMEX 2024

PlayBox Neo confirms a well attended and successful Future of Media Exhibition (FOMEX), held at the Arena Riyadh in the Saudi Arabian capital from Monday 19 through Wednesday 21 February. With over 15,000 attendees and 200 exhibiting companies plus a strong supporting program of conference presentations, FOMEX gave television content creators, postproduction specialists and broadcasters the opportunity to experience the latest trends in terms of equipment, software and services.

“We experienced good visitor traffic from throughout the MENA region with strong interest in our coordinated range of broadcast channel branding, management and playout solutions on all three days of the show,” says Detelin Georgiev, Regional Sales Manager for the Middle East and CIS. “Media creatives, station managers and network executives in and around Saudi Arabia face the same challenges as their professional colleagues throughout the world: how to ensure maximum operational flexibility, reliability, interoperability and, above all, profitability. The modular structure of PlayBox Neo products and services allows channel management systems to be tailored to match the demands of today’s media marketplace while retaining the freedom to accommodate changes in workflow quickly and economically.”

“We demonstrated the ease with which PlayBox Neo can be installed and operated at any desired scale from a single playout server up to full multi-channel broadcast centers,” adds Nikolay Spasov, Head of Technical Department. “The key message we emphasize at all trade shows is the ability to handle every aspect of the channel management routine within a single PlayBox Neo system: from live production right through to on-air transmission or online streaming.”

“An additional strength of PlayBox Neo systems is the ease with which they can be integrated with existing SDI and IP infrastructure, onsite, remote, pre-scheduled, hands-on or in combination,” Detelin Georgiev summarizes. “Refined over nearly a quarter century, our solutions have achieved global pre-eminence. Shows like FOMEX continue to provide valuable opportunities to discuss future requirements with potential and existing customers, maintaining the innovative spirit which has sustained PlayBox Neo as the industry-preferred partner for broadcast media management automation.”
