ScheduALL announces sports operations software
ScheduALL, a provider of resource management software for the broadcast industry, has made available its Sports Operations System for scheduling, booking and managing sports broadcasting resources.
The company’s new system supports complex event operations as well as a variety of production and transmission workflows. It delivers a graphic way of tracking, scheduling and managing people, resources and equipment across multiple time zones in a highly complex, constantly changing environment.
One recent example was the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, in which the ScheduALL solution was used by NBC Sports to originate and distribute scheduling information for more than 3600 hours of coverage.
For the Olympics, ScheduALL stored and managed critical information such as start and stop times for each event, video router assignments and satellite uplink scheduling and then passed the information automatically to downstream systems to facilitate on-air coverage for each feed.
In addition, ScheduALL generated reports with scheduling and resource allocation data that could be accessed instantly by personnel in the NBC Beijing operations center as well as the company’s central broadcasting facility at 30 Rockefeller Plaza in New York.
