Pilat Media demonstrates VOD asset management system
Pilat Media has demonstrated an upcoming version of IBMS designed to handle both nonlinear (IPTV and VOD) and linear programming and advertising.
To date, IPTV service providers have typically scheduled a small number of assets — including films, TV programs and advertisements — and have been limited to basic tools such as spreadsheets. As they enhance their services and the number of VOD assets that they manage grows to tens of thousands, they are demanding more sophisticated tools to manage their programming, rights management and contractual studio commitments.
IBMS automates the management of all IPTV scheduling, rights management, regulation and internal business rules, royalty payments and contractual metrics. For those broadcasters who already use IBMS, they will have a single integrated solution for managing both linear and nonlinear assets.
