April 4th, 2023 – PlayBox Neo, a globally active leader in digital content management, graphic styling and playout solutions, announces a new addition to its network of partner companies with the appointment of CIS Group as a systems integration service provider. Headquartered in Florida, CIS provides services to clients around the world (with a primary focus on the Americas region), and has offices in Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo, Massachusetts, and North Carolina.

“CIS is highly experienced company with a 35-year track record in systems design, integration, testing and operator training,” comments Pavlin Rahnev, PlayBox Neo founder and CEO. “Its client list includes multinational broadcasters and playout service companies as well as major organizations in the wider telco, educational and corporate sectors. We are confident that the CIS team’s proven engineering skills and commercial connectivity will strengthen the quality and level of support we will be able to offer potential and existing customers in Latin America.”

“PlayBox Neo’s modular approach to television channel branding, content storage and playout offers great flexibility in the style and scale of projects we can provide to our customers,” adds CIS Group CEO Matt Silva. “Satellite, terrestrial and online channel owners today need the ability to make maximum use of automation, particularly when transmitting round-the-clock, while keeping the freedom to switch to live mode for high-priority news.

PlayBox Neo provides a platform that addresses the needs of broadcast operations at various scales, from a single regional news channel up to a global 24/7 network operation. We are very excited to be working with them and to add their solution set to our portfolio.”
