Overcoming challenges

The requirements of live playout and master control have never been so challenging; with a seemingly contradictory set of demands including lowering costs, increasing viewer channels, high reliability and high quality brand images for broadcasters. Our solutions ensure media is delivered to the right place at the right time in the right format and then played out or delivered for viewer consumption in the most reliable and efficient ways possible.

Smooth launching of new services

Imagine that you need to implement a number of new high quality playout channels, some with live content and some lifestyle or documentary channels, all carrying highly valuable commercial content - where do you start?

There are a multitude of points you will need to consider in order to ensure a smooth launch, and to ensure that your business gains the benefits it desires. These include:
  • Which core business systems you need to interface with
  • Which existing equipment must remain to allow continuation of established workflows
  • How to reduce the total cost of ownership
  • How to migrate operational staff to new systems
  • How to accommodate current and future demands with flexibility

Because we understand the issues that you face we have a playout product with open interfaces such as BXF and web APIs to ensure the best interoperability with existing business systems. Our playout automation system interfaces to a multitude of 3rd party products to allow you to support your existing operations whilst migrating to our range of solutions for Channel-in-a-Box, routing, modular, control and monitoring, switchers and server products.

Replacing the traditional broadcast chain

Utilizing our advanced Channel-in-a-Box technology, you can benefit from a highly condensed feature set replacing as much of the traditional broadcast chain as you desire to save cost. Our automation and control and monitoring interfaces provide intuitive monitoring and control, showing only critical information to operators to allow them to run multiple channels of playout with minimal effort.

Flexibility is built in to all of our playout solutions allowing you to adapt to new playout demands such as new channel launches, differentiated branding or the migration to IP, ensuring the most futureproof system.
