BroadView and Harris integrate traffic and automation
June 7, 2004
Looking to improve efficiency for television broadcasters, BroadView Software and Harris Corp.’s Broadcast Communications Division have integrated their respective broadcast software products.
The integration of BroadView’s traffic, scheduling and rights management capabilities with Harris automation includes the ability for each system to read from the other’s database, enabling improved playlist functionality as well as:
- Transferring media information such as ingestion lists, house numbers, titles and cut numbers and durations from BroadView to Harris.
- Using Harris software tools to make frame-accurate changes and corrections to media timing and information and then having these changes automatically and seamlessly flow back to the traffic logs in BroadView to ensure accuracy prior to air.
- Transferring the “As Run” (a listing of what actually went to air) from the Harris automation system back to the BroadView traffic system for reconciling to the original schedule.
Harris’ automation solutions allow broadcasters to control all types of new and legacy equipment, including VTRs, video servers, routers, master control switchers, cart machines, character generators and logo inserters.
