DVEO’s “Channels in a Box” Scheduled or Triggered Playout Server Wins Future’s Best of Show Award, Awarded by Sound & Video Contractor Magazine


12 Channels – PLAYSERVER™ HD-SDI 12ch


San Diego, California — DVEO®, a leading TV/OTT equipment supplier, announced today that their playout server for live and scheduled content is a recipient of the Future Best of Show Award, presented at the 2019 NAB Show by Sound & Video Contractor. The PLAYSERVER™ 12ch HD-SDI is a one to twelve channel playout server with scheduled ad splicing, ad overlay, traffic system interface, emergency alerts on all channels, etc.

Sound & Video Contractor’s Best of Show Awards are evaluated by a panel of engineers and industry experts, and are selected based on innovation, feature set, cost efficiency and performance in serving the industry. Winners receive an award for display and will be featured in Sound & Video Contractor, the definitive technical resource for integrators, contractors, dealers and consultants.

The PLAYSERVER™ 12ch HD-SDI is a cost effective “Channels in a Box” integrated playout system with scheduled or triggered content playout. It inserts ads and video clips into live or stored video content, with graphics, text, or logo overlays for up to twelve outgoing video streams. It’s ideal for public, education, government, and houses of worship users who distribute HD or SD content on multiple channels.

The remotely manageable system downloads premium content, commercials, public announcements, and other clips via IP and inserts them into programming. It also scales incoming video to add graphics to the side and bottom of the screen.

“We are proud to receive the Best of Show award from Future and Sound & Video Contractor. This is one of the most prestigious awards in the AV industry,” commented Laszlo Zoltan, CEO of DVEO. “The PLAYSERVER 12ch HD-SDI is ideal for content originators and other users who want to play out multiple channels at the same time. In addition to managing scheduled playout, it features seamless splices and can add text and graphics overlays on all twelve channels in real time. DVEO also creates custom versions to meet customers’ requests.”

“We are proud to celebrate the growing presence of Pro AV at the NAB Show,” adds Sound & Video Contractor editor Cynthia Wisehart. “These products demonstrate a focus on the AV industry and a serious effort to provide features and innovation for our users. Congratulations to the engineers, designers, product managers and executives involved.”

The PLAYSERVER is also available in a system with three SD-SDI channels and one HD channel, or as a single HD-SDI channel system for use in broadcast applications.

Additional applications for the PLAYSERVER include scheduled video playout for corporate training, adding diagrams or messages to educational presentations, or adding text and graphics to video at live events.
