Pharos Mediator integrates with third-party scheduling systems
Pharos Mediator broadcast media management is now integrated with a wider range of scheduling, traffic and channel management systems including MediaGenix What's On?, Harris and Pilat Mediamachine/IBMS. Mediator extends its integrated browse encoding and streaming to any third-party desktop to provide content and relevant metadata across the enterprise to scheduling, traffic and channel management systems.
Direct integration enables more information to be passed between channel managers and the Mediator database to drive the workflow. Repetitive high-volume tasks such as ingest, QC, compliance, promos and approvals can now be managed in advance, based on transmission schedule priority. This further enhances the efficiencies required in international and multilanguage operations for multichannel broadcasters and service providers.
