Our inaugural pod, with a capacity to host eight TV channels, was very rapidly populated by entrepreneurial broadcasters who recognised the massive benefits of the digital revolution, in terms of both affordability and speed of response in getting a channel live on air.
Since then we have grown and remained at the leading edge throughout the myriad of changes in both hardware and software that have given life to the multi-channel, multi-format, multi-lingual broadcast environment today.
To test your own understanding of all the changes in playout possibilities that we can weave into your channel today, we invite you to take our the ABSolute Playout Test which we will be running over the next few months to coincide with the launch of our new playout suite in Unit 11.
