PBT EU provides innovative line-up incorporating everything a broadcaster needs
IBC Stand A02, Hall 5, IBC Show, The RAI, Amsterdam, 9 – 13 September 2016
PlayBox Technology EU (PBT EU) is delighted to present its software application suite – SubtitleNext – for the first time at IBC. SubtitleNext is an advanced software platform for creation, management, burning, airing and conversion of subtitles, captions and other text services, for multimedia industries, including production, post-production, radio and TV, cinema, opera and theatre, commercials, entertainment, and any other genre where timed texts would be a requirement.
SubtitleNext has the capability to dramatically improve speed and efficiency, but also simplifies the processes throughout the entire work cycle. The software is suitable for both newcomers and industry professionals in highly demanding positions. SubtitleNext is a software system with a 25-year legacy behind it, in combination with the very latest trends, and expectations in the field. It also supports most of the historic and existing subtitling and media protocols, standards and formats, and is flexible enough to easily be extended with new options. The product line also includes several software licensing levels and options, ranging from entry level SubtitleNext Novice, right up to SubtitleNext Expert.
PBT EU also welcomes new technology partner and co-exhibitor ISID to IBC this year. A leading software manufacturer, ISID specialises in media solutions and develops popular media asset management (MAM) software ‘Videoma’. Covering the needs of professionals within broadcasting as well as education, corporations and even government security, the software allows users to organise, manage, process and edit all of their imported video, audio or image content via closed files, or captured through IP streams or video servers. The software is also able to incorporate leading innovative features and modules such as a speech-t0- text recognition engine, biometric analysis, audio fingerprinting, and practically any metadata retrieval system the customer may need.
In addition, PBT EU introduces strategic partner, Toronto-based software company Profuz Digital Inc. to IBC for the first time presenting LAPIS (Limitless Advanced Powerful and Intelligent System). LAPIS is the software hub which integrates information coming from MAMs, storage, news feeds, advertising agencies, accounting and CRM, and provides a central way of searching, collaborating, reporting, managing and tracking of all the information sources in a single environment. It also manages the outgoing information and the simultaneous publishing to multiple web destinations. It tirelessly handles and schedules the materials needed for the broadcasting servers and manages the internal/external tasks, projects and processes. Appealing to production houses, teleports and broadcasters, PBT EU chose to distribute LAPIS as it filled a void in broadcasting, in terms of efficiency, affordability and adaptability to the business needs of a wide spectrum of organisations. It helps to connect the dots within and outside an organisation with its user-friendly multi-purpose process designed to cleverly encapsulate, in a central hub, or substitute a myriad of other complex systems, such as MAMs, news, ERP, CRM, traffic, and acts as an efficient workflow management tool, enabling users to design, build and run flexible business procedures and operations. At the same time, LAPIS is in synergy with PBT EU’s latest EXEcutor™ server line and enhances the offering by adding a new generation management layer on top. What makes LAPIS so powerful is its transferability and endless possibilities for customisation, helping to significantly reduce costs and overheads.
Also, very much in the spotlight at stand 5. A02 is PBT EU’s own-manufactured EXEcutor™ range of innovative broadcast servers combined with the EXEcutor™ Virtual Control Panel (EVCP). Created to meet the specific challenges that face broadcasters, production and post-production facilities, the EXEcutor™ Broadcast Servers provide for ingest, media management, titling, graphics, playout and scheduling, and can deliver a complete “TV channel-in-a-box” solution, or be configured to offer any combination of component services, using world-renowned software applications powering over 16,000 international broadcasters, with efficient, scalable and flexible production pipelines.
General Manager at PBT EU Vladimir Stanic states, “In today’s fast paced and ever changing landscape, we are eager to demonstrate to broadcasters, content owners, teleport satellite network companies, TV channels and OTT providers coming to IBC this year, how our unique and scalable solutions provide everything a broadcaster needs all in one complete powerful turnkey system.”
In summary, PBT EU technology partners present on the stand include Profuz Digital Inc., new partner ISID, as well as cross-media advertising and TV programming experts CSE; SPI Labs with FunBox UHDTV Channel; and manufacturer of PC add-on cards, USB devices, IP converters and software for professional digital television – DekTec.
