PlayBox Technology and DELTACAST have been working together to extend the applications of the DELTA-hd SDI line of input and output boards into PlayBox Technology television solutions. The DELTA-sdi, DELTA-hd, DELTA-key and DELTA-dvi video boards are now supported in PlayBox servers that include AirBox playout, TitleBox CG and CaptureBox ingest high-end applications.
Major features driving PlayBox Technology to this decision include the full control of all SDI signal components including VANC (closed captions, Teletext, WSS, timecode), HANC, AES3 audio (including AC-3) and raw SDI frame. The DELTACAST boards also provide automatic bypass relays controlled by power availability, or by a watchdog. Embedding and de-embedding of audio (AES3) and timecode (VITC, LTC, ATC) are also available.
"We are pleased to see that PlayBox now supports all our families of boards in their high-end broadcast applications and that the work has been easy thanks to our unified VideoMasterHD SDK. Now PlayBox customers can use our broad portfolio of over 28 uncompressed OEM video boards to build I/O solutions in DVI, SD SDI, HD SDI and soon 3G SDI." said Steven Deschuyteneer, Director of Worldwide Sales and Marketing at DELTACAST.
