UKTV rolls out SintecMedia OnAir

November 19, 2008

UKTV will roll out an integrated management system across its broadcast portfolio, resulting in companywide benefits — including implementing its network rebrand without bringing in extra staff and freeing up time to further craft its 10 channels' schedules.

SintecMedia’s OnAir broadcast management system will replace two existing business systems and six internally developed systems. OnAir enables UKTV to manage its network scheduling more effectively while reducing duplication of information and manpower. Set to save at least 18,500 man hours on an annual basis, OnAir is currently being used by more than 140 staff out of 190 across the UKTV business and other suppliers.

Accessed via installed local desktop software, a remote Citrix client or a Web browser, the new workflow engine relies on the inputting of metadata at each stage of the channel chain.
