3 – 5 October 2018 – Hotel Radisson Blu, Berlin-Mitte, Germany
PBT EU is delighted to support the Languages & The Media 2018 Conference in Berlin with its flagship product line SubtitleNEXT logo proudly displayed as official Silver Sponsor product of the show. This year marks the 12th international conference on language transfer in AV media and takes place from 3 – 5 October. Major themes at the conference, sponsored by PBT EU along with big brand names such as Netflix, VSI and STAR, will include new distribution models, language tools, interlingual transfer, accessibility, the future of work and quality standards.
Considered “the fourth Industrial Revolution reshaping languages in the media”, this dynamic conference will examine crucial challenges and the way in which cutting-edge technologies like SubtitleNEXT are changing how AV media is delivered globally and how it’s consumed across languages.
The conference will be accompanied by an exhibition, whereby international solutions providers will showcase a range of innovative products and services. It provides an opportunity to learn about the sector’s pioneering timed-text technologies including SubtitleNEXT. Visitors to the conference can discover how SubtitleNEXT can be tailored to suit and adapt to specific requirements. As part of the lecture agenda, PBT EU representative Vladimir Stanic will present on their new web-based hybrid platform NEXT-TT which gives operators the best of both worlds with desktop and Cloud compatibility.
The complete NEXT-TT solution has resulted in new capabilities enabling extremely fast and efficient generation of managing timed-text, dubbing and localisation services of any type of content, or managing teams of translators, audio-visual professionals, and creative freelancers, providing an ultra-secure and super-fast private workspace, toolsets, and workflows for ensuring quality.
Sales Director at PBT EU, Alexander Stoyanov states, “We are thrilled to sponsor and support this important conference which is a high-level podium for all professionals involved in captioning, subtitling, timed-text, interpreting, and translating across a variety of media. Language essentially shapes who we are and in turn shapes the industry. How technology fits into the equation as a disruptor provides challenges as well as opportunities.”
CTO of PBT EU Kamen Ferdinandov, who will also be present at the event, adds further, “In my view, we are at a historic turning point in our civilisation and it is imperative to discuss the implications of how new solutions are making languages more accessible and affecting communications across cultures through media. So, this will be a fascinating topic threading throughout the 3-day period. As a company, we have embraced these changes ahead of time. We are very excited to present the adaptable capabilities that SubtitleNEXT already offers to help solve the challenges facing subtitlers today in a market that demands constant content at a rapid pace.”
SubtitleNEXT is a user-friendly, innovative, customisable, intuitive and affordable timed-text software platform. Already adopted across various multimedia industries, it is designed for personal and professional use. It easily adapts to any settings, resolutions, and formats such as AR, MR, VR, 8K, 4K, 2K, HD, SD, 3D, UHD across online video, TV, film, theatre, concerts, festivals, conferences and events.

Demonstrations feature European debut of NEXT-TT & EXEcutor™ Media Integrator
IBC Stand 9.LP35, IBC Show, The RAI, Amsterdam, 14 – 18 September 2018
IBC2018 sets the scene for the European premiere of new Timed-Text hybrid platform NEXT-TT powered by Profuz Digital from global systems integration specialists PlayBox Technology EU (PBT EU). PBT EU will also showcase the EXEcutor™ Media Integrator module, already adopted by major telecom operators. Demonstrations will take place at PBT EU’s dedicated Launch Pad 9.LP35 at the show, from 14 – 18 September in Amsterdam.
The complete NEXT-TT solution is comprised of two distinct elements that work together as a single, unified platform: LAPIS (Limitless Advanced Powerful and Intelligent System) with timed-text subtitling software application SubtitleNEXT. The fusion has resulted in new capabilities enabling extremely fast and efficient generation of managing timed-text, dubbing and localisation services of any type of content, or managing teams of translators, audiovisual professionals, and creative freelancers, providing an ultra-secure and super-fast private workspace, toolsets, and workflows for ensuring quality.
NEXT-TT has already attracted the attention of leading Hollywood studios and quickly gaining a reputation as a gamechanger in subtitling. This unique approach is designed to give users greater freedom of choice in how they work with desktop or cloud applications. SubtitleNEXT and LAPIS can also be used separately bringing the best of both worlds to subtitlers. (https://subtitlenext.com/product-line/platform/)
LAPIS is a central hub that brings disparate data services that media companies use under one roof. It manages complex processes, tasks, video, audio, text, user access, security, and safeguards confidential material. It has the ability to access and search data across many providers such as YouTube, Vimeo, stock image libraries, internal media asset storage systems and customer relationship data bases.
NEXT-TT is user-friendly, innovative, customisable, intuitive and affordable already adopted across various multimedia industries and is designed for both personal and professional use. It easily adapts to any settings, resolutions, and formats such as AR, MR, XR, VR, 8K, 4K, 2K, HD, SD, 3D, UHD across online video, TV, film, theatre, concerts, festivals, conferences and events. It can be applied throughout the entire video production process from concept to distribution.
PBT EU partnered with Italy’s IT Pros Subtitles® this year to create the first remote online course for translators to learn subtitling skills based on SubtitleNEXT. The initial training module, along with other brands, went ahead recently run by IT Pros’ most experienced subtitler Monica Paolillo who trained a group of translation professionals to master the software. In addition, the recent launch of a new website www.subtitlenext.com has been labelled as the “Home of Subtitlers” and a NEXTClub members community is growing around the product, with a new e-shop that opened in time for NAB earlier this year. https://shop.profuzdigital.com
PBT EU will also support the Languages & The Media 2018 Conference in Berlin in October with its flagship platform NEXT-TT logo proudly displayed as official Silver Sponsor product of the show, alongside STAR, Netflix and VSI.
PBT EU’s other product on show, the module-based EXEcutor™ Media Integrator introduces three new levels this year at IBC. The system serves as an essential addition to “Channel-In-A-Box” bundles, making it future-ready and adaptable for all production environments. It expands the “CiaB” concept beyond traditional channel origination, over to production and asset control environments, making it more accessible. It is easy to upgrade and is a future-proof solution that evolves and scales with growing requirements without losing data or history and hosts dedicated tools for CRM and project management.

PBT EU’s GM, Vladimir Stanic will be on hand to share insights and expertise and says, “Our EXEcutor™ brand of products will be enriched by the enhanced EXEcutor™ Media Integrator, plus the premiere of several new server models. Our services can be tailor-made to create the best results to suit each individual case. We welcome visitors to the show to come and talk to us about how we can help. We have a reputation of being good listeners and customers expect a pleasant client journey. PBT EU‘s Launch Pad at IBC2018 is an excellent starting point.”
After just providing solutions to Videohouse, the largest production house in the Benelux region, PBT EU’s sales director Alexander Stoyanov comments, “2018 marks another year of massive penetration and expansion of diversified timed-text services followed by content and process management systems. Our main emphasis for this IBC combines both trends and all visitors can enjoy the European debut of the NEXT-TT hybrid platform, announced at NAB a few months ago.”

PBT EU nailed localization expectations required for Clubbing TV Russia
International channel Clubbing TV selected PlayBox Technology’s AirBox Neo from PBT EU to launch “Clubbing TV Russia” on interactive TV in HD. A twenty-four-hour lifestyle and dance music platform, the channel is now being broadcasted on RosTelecom with 25% of the playlist in the Russian language.
Clubbing TV produces stunning and energetic interactive content including live weekend broadcasts for key titles such as “Live DJ Set” and “Clubbing Experience”. These vibrant shows are produced within a multi-camera full HD production environment and recorded in the best festivals and concerts worldwide and at Clubbing TV’s Paris studio.
The localized Russian version of Clubbing TV originated following a strategic partnership with Russian production and sales agency Media4you, and covers several hours of locally produced weekly magazine, interview, and DJ set programs, popular with fans of electronic music and club events and appealing to a younger audience. Electronic music is the fastest growing music genre in the world, and its DJ artists and festivals are thriving in Russia, appealing to a lively audience and predominantly millennial generation.
Sales Director at PBT EU Alexander Stoyanov notes, “Interactive TV enables viewers of all ages and interests to find the content they want to watch. Furthermore, the multi-screen function means that content can be viewed simultaneously on different screens, without causing interference with others in the same household.
Our job at PBT EU was to ensure that the live feed was ingested and integrated into the actual daily playlist via PlayBox’ AirBox Neo, and then delivered to the viewers on time. The project is still progressing well across automation, back-up solutions and synchronisation tools. We are proud to enthusiastically support Clubbing TV in all their ventures as they continue to offer compelling and entertaining content for an exuberant crowd.”
General Manager at Clubbing TV Nikolay Nachev explains further, “Our customers offer Clubbing TV to their subscribers, so we needed to guarantee that we could provide a solid and stable turnkey solution to over millions of potential Russian new subscribers.” Adding further, “This a tremendously important market for us, and we needed to feel confident that the final deliverables would be reliable and consistent, and at such short notice to meet high-pressured timescales we were up against.”
Stephane Schweitzer, Clubbing TV’s CEO and Founder goes on to confirm why PBT EU was chosen to broadcast their linear HD TV channel to RosTelecom in Russia, “PBT EU was the company that met our expectations by far, and they proved to be the most dependable and perfect choice for us. Their support team are highly professional, and we communicated with them daily throughout the migration and feed synchronisation across numerous servers in each territory. PBT EU really made it so easy to set up AirBox Neo and it’s extremely intuitive to manage. Integrational interfacing with a third-party scheduling system was a real technological challenge, which PBT EU helped us overcome with sheer professionalism and know-how. We were in good hands and this project stands out as being a great success thanks to the expertise of the brilliant PBT EU team.”
This is a very exciting time, with Clubbing TV’s portfolio now including over 1200 titles with 300 hours of HD, and already 100 hours of 4K content. They are now working on a similar set up for Clubbing TV India.
