Broadcast Traffic Systems to unveil BTS Express traffic management system
Broadcast Traffic Systems (BTS) will introduce BTS Express, a downloadable broadcast traffic management system based on the BTS Enterprise application, at IBC2009.
A modular package, Express provides traffic and ad sales management for single- or multichannel presentation suites and playout centers.
The entry-level application is designed for broadcasters who require an efficient, affordable and scalable means of media-traffic control and supervision. It is based on three modules that together provide the features necessary to manage advertising sales and traffic, including program planning, traffic scheduling, transmission scheduling, as-run scheduling and media management.
The basic Express System module consists of the infrastructure required to operate a single channel. The Express Scheduling option adds a media library, program library, promo library, long-term scheduling and presentation scheduling. The Express Sales option incorporates all the facilities required for sales administration, contract management, sales finance and invoicing.
