Omnibus Systems announced that its OPUS Interchange Web Services Gateway will provide support for the data exchange protocol under development by the SMPTE S22-10 Working Group on Data Exchange.
The S22-10 Working Group is developing specifications for the exchange of XML-encoded data among traffic, automation, program management, and content delivery systems. The group is defining XML schemas for the exchange of data among adjacent systems in five categories including content metadata, air schedules, as-run logs, record schedules, and content purging.
Participants in the S22-10 Working Group include representatives from over 60 companies, including hardware manufacturers, software providers and broadcasters. Omnibus Systems was among eight companies that initiated the standardization effort prior to its acceptance as a working group by the SMPTE S22 Technical Committee.
OPUS Interchange is part of the OmniBus OPUS Suite for Content Management that was released at IBC2005 in Amsterdam. Beta versions of Interchange have been in use by several traffic and DAM providers since early 2005 for integration with OmniBus G3 systems at major broadcast facilities throughout the world.
