GuideBuilder's PSIP Management System and BCM's Clickable TV EBIF System Provide Interactive Television Capability to Local Broadcasters
PRINCETON, N.J. -- April 3, 2012 -- Triveni Digital today announced that it will demonstrate integration between the GuideBuilder(R) PSIP metadata management system and BCM's Clickable TV(R) end-to-end interactive television solution at the 2012 NAB Show. Working together, these systems enable a broadcaster of any size to offer interactive TV solutions, greatly enhancing the television viewing experience and benefiting advertisers, programmers, and viewers.
The GuideBuilder system provides mission-critical operational capabilities for content providers and network operators, including managing PSI and PSIP metadata, which are critical elements for deploying interactive digital television. The Clickable TV system includes Onyx Vantage(TM) for creating and scheduling Clickable Moments(R) and Onyx Metacast(TM) for automatic execution of the schedule. Rich performance metrics are available in Vantage. When GuideBuilder and Clickable TV are used in combination, broadcasters can reliably and cost-effectively insert interactive messaging into the broadcast stream.
"We're excited to show the ease of use with which local broadcasters can deploy enhanced content and services," said Ralph Bachofen, vice president of sales, head of marketing, Triveni Digital. "During the demonstration we'll highlight how GuideBuilder can effectively manage program event information to ensure the smooth delivery of interactive services."
