Bangkok, Thailand – Thai broadcaster TV Pool has upgraded its PlayBox Technology transmission control and playout system to allow high-definition delivery of Thai TV (Channel 17) on the country’s terrestrial digital television platform. Three additional channels also received new HD playout systems. Currently transmitting in SD, Thai TV (Channel 27) and Loca TV (Channel 15 and Channel 25) can start transmitting in high definition whenever necessary. The system is located at TV Pool’s headquarters in Bangkok.

“PlayBox Technology was chosen in the first place for its ability to deliver a complete and fully tested system which can be expanded easily whenever TV Pool decides to upgrade to HD,” commented Rattanaphol Cha-Em, Project Manager at Thai reseller CNSP which is itself based in Bangkok. “An additional reason for choosing PlayBox Technology was the fact that we were able to provide local support during initial planning and the actual build, as well as in the future. That has helped create a lot of trust.”
