Cost Effective PLAY SERVER™ 12ch HD-SDI Manages Content Efficiently

San Diego, California -- DVEO®, a leading TV/OTT equipment supplier, is now shipping their latest playout server for live and scheduled content. DVEO will demonstrate the PLAY SERVER™ 12ch HD-SDI in Booth SU3306 at the NAB (National Association of Broadcasters) Show in Las Vegas, April 8-11.

Designed for broadcast and cable operators, the PLAY SERVER™ 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.

The remotely manageable system downloads commercials via IP and inserts commercials into programming. It also scales incoming video to add graphics to the side and bottom of the screen. 

The PLAY SERVER 12ch HD-SDI works with most station traffic and billing systems. It manages ad inventories and provides "proof of play" for all ads and emergency messages played. It can be ordered with optional hard drives to store commercials.

The system supports EAS emergency alerts and SCTE 35 triggers on all inputs, plus optional analog cue tones. It works with most EAS systems like Trilithic™, Sage™, Monroe™, etc.

"The PLAY SERVER 12ch HD-SDI is ideal for broadcasters who wish to maximize subchannels on a single frequency," said Laszlo Zoltan, CEO of DVEO. "In addition to managing scheduled playout, it features seamless splices and can add message overlays on all twelve channels in real time. We also create custom units to meet customers' requests."

The PLAY SERVER is also available in a system with three SD-SDI channels and one HD channel, or as a single HD-SDI channel system.
