VDS delivers Promotor to AFN
VDS has provided American Forces Network (AFN) with eight channels of Promotor. The product provides extensive capabilities for the automatic playback of graphic and audio promos.
At AFN, real-time playlist information from the automation system is sent to Promotor via the VDS Sentinel interface. Graphics templates on each channel’s Harris IconStation channel-branding system can be filled with data that has been extracted from the playlist or retrieved from the Promotor database. Promotor can then trigger the IconStation systems for real-time insertion of promos and other graphics.
