VCI Automation Introduces autoXe

Following its recent acquisition of broadcast automation provider Digital Transaction Group, VCI Automation, a division of Video Communications Inc., has introduced autoXe, an advanced automation software designed to work seamlessly with the Xe platform as a total content delivery system.

"autoXe goes beyond traditional automation systems. The Xe platform harvests the data in one database, the data then drives the workflow, and autoXe manages the complete content lifecycle from ingest to playout," said VCI Automation General Manager James Brown said, adding that the system's simplicity eliminates human intervention, which translates to increased revenue and enhanced efficiencies.

"To say 'seamless integration' doesn't even do it justice; the way in which autoXe thrives on the Xe platform, working together hand in hand, is incredible," said Lowell Putnam, CEO of VCI. "VCI has made a strong commitment to the industry to provide innovative tools to help customers better compete in the marketplace, and the extensibility of Xe platform will allow us to develop new and innovative technology for the future. autoXe is a great example of that."
