Myers Enables Metadata Delivery for U.K. PBS Channel
NORTHHAMPTON, MASS.: Myers Information Systems announced the successful implementation of a metadata delivery platform that will enable the airing of PBS content to audiences in the United Kingdom.
The platform was developed for PBS Distribution (PBSd), a joint venture of PBS and WGBH, Boston’s public television outlet, with international rights to a significant library of public television titles. Myers will supply metadata for the programs identified by PBSd, enabling the new British PBS service--which launches Nov. 1, 2011 on Sky channel 166--to populate its traffic and scheduling system.
