Cosmos from PlayBox Technology virtualises the process of channel management under control from a standard enterprise computer via a firewall-protected secure internet connection. Programme playout can be automated to any required extent while always retaining the freedom to insert live content.
Channels can be hosted from data centres or from your own Master Control Room over a private or public cloud. Cosmos is format agnostic and gives you the ability to playout both file-based and live services easily. Cosmos has been designed from day one to support AES67 along with SMPTE ST 2110, 2022-2 2022-6, 2022-7, 35 and 104, thus safeguarding your investment.
Cosmos also offers established broadcasters and content owners the ability to introduce new programme channels at very short notice, whether a permanent addition to an existing bouquet or a supplementary programme stream covering a temporary event. Cosmos can be matched to a wide variety of deployment models, enabling consistent operation across baseband, hybrid IP, and virtualised, cloud-based networks.
Cosmos represents a forward-thinking cloud playout solution that exceeds the needs of broadcasters and is perfect for live sports and events broadcasting.
