DayPort Implements Carbon Content Management System at BSkyB
DayPort Inc. has installed its Carbon Task Manager, part of its Carbon Content Management System, for Sky News Interactive based in Unit 1 at British Sky Broadcasting (BSkyB)'s London headquarters. Unit 1 is the brand new, purpose-built facility for BSkyB's 24-hour news channel "Sky News".

Currently, Sky News Interactive journalists edit news stories using Quantel sQEdit workstations, which are "wrapped" around a Zone Magic, Quantel sQ Video Server architecture. The newly installed Quantel system provides the core content news production system for the Sky News channel. DayPort--through a developmental and integration partnership with Quantel announced at NAB2005--automatically extracts content from the broadcast production system, once the content is completed and approved.

The Carbon Task Manager system at Sky News Interactive enables preparation formatting, management and delivery of Sky News content and metadata in multiple video formats, resolutions, image sizes, and aspect ratios, to additional content viewing platforms such as mobile phones, iPods, other mobile video services. DayPort has provided customised User Interfaces to provide a seamless and transparent workflow, allowing the automated and manual delivery of content to BSkyB's customers, which include Vodafone and Orange.

"We are very excited to have a progressive organization like BSkyB join our list of customers," said Cory Factor, CEO of DayPort. "... In addition to the DayPort implementation at BSkyB providing them with solutions to existing problems, we hope it will also be a foundation for the rest of the DayPort solutions to solve other BSkyB issues as they arise."
