SintecMedia at IBC2014

At IBC2014, SintecMedia will showcase its full product family, including new and existing offerings that help customers monetize their assets and streamline their operations in today's complex and rapidly changing media environment. On display will be best-in-class products for managing critical functions ranging from advertising revenue and programming operations to affiliate revenue and on-demand operations, working together to provide a complete and seamless solution. SintecMedia will feature OnAir(R) 4, a significant upgrade of its flagship product that demonstrates the company's ongoing investment in product improvement. Also featured at IBC2014 will be the Integrated Broadcast Management System (IBMS); the MediaPro advertising sales system; the CloudOnAir solution, designed to enable small and mid-size companies to manage their media businesses in the cloud; and robust solutions -- including the OTTilus over-the-top (OTT) delivery platform -- for managing nonlinear offerings.

NEW: SintecMedia OnAir(R) 4

Making its European debut at IBC2014, SintecMedia's OnAir(R) 4 is a significant new version of the company's leading platform for end-to-end broadcast management. OnAir 4 supports every business-critical function necessary to manage the advertising revenue stream, including ad sales, traffic, programming, scheduling, promotions, and rights management. Key improvements include a sleeker technology footprint that delivers a significant reduction in implementation and system maintenance costs, as well as a new optimization tool kit for managing promos and ads.

OnAir 4 features a completely redesigned screen layout that makes navigation of complex business workflows easier and more intuitive than ever before. From a single integrated screen, operators have a complete overview of the broadcast business environment and easy access to critical operations with a minimum of mouse clicks. The system has an intelligent interface that senses where the user is in the navigation and suggests the next possible operation, providing the user with intuitive navigation and more operational space on the screen.

In addition, OnAir 4 is now completely integrated with SintecMedia's stand-alone OnRights and OnRequest modules for nonlinear content management and delivery. Working together, the three products offer a comprehensive business management solution for managing and delivering content for linear broadcast and nonlinear platforms.

Broadcast Management in the Cloud -- www.CloudOnAir.TV

Offered as software as a service, CloudOnAir delivers robust capabilities for managing broadcast sales, traffic, scheduling, programming, promotion, and billing -- all without the expense or operational hassles of managing on-site hardware, applications, and IT resources. Now, broadcasters of all sizes can migrate easily from manual spreadsheet-based processes to the tools they need to run a successful station or network, without having to make a significant investment in on-site technology. With high-level security and easy accessibility and integration, the system is delivered via a secure website with extensive online support. Utilizing a library of built-in templates, CloudOnAir provides smaller broadcasters with specific tools to maximize airtime and increase revenue for standard and multiplatform delivery.

Managing Nonlinear OTT and VOD Offerings

At IBC2014, SintecMedia will showcase its rich set of offerings that streamline and centralize key business management functions for multiplatform and video-on-demand (VOD) services. OnRequest opens new revenue streams through effective management of all programming, contract rights, ad sales, and promotions for nonlinear services on a variety of platforms. IBMS OnDemand provides centralized business management for VOD services, enabling media companies to build a richer viewing experience with broader content choice. As an enterprise-class OTT platform, OTTilus is the foundation on which broadcasters, platform operators, and new media ventures launch the next generation of TV Everywhere services. Working together, these three products offer a complete solution for managing nonlinear operations and they are also seamlessly integrated with SintecMedia's IBMS and OnAir broadcast management systems.
