Xytech will be at NAB with its new MediaPulse Sky, a mobile interface for its MediaPulse facility management platform. The company is also showing over 400 new features for MediaPulse, a platform used by studios, networks, media companies and post facilities for functions such as scheduling, asset management, resource allotment, personnel, equipment and financials.
Expanding access and mobility for users, MediaPulse Sky is available for all portable devices. Greg Dolan, COO of Xytech, says, “Full and timely access to data is standard in today’s media business. We developed Sky to give our clients secure access to what they need.”
Configurable through MediaPulse Layout Editor, the MediaPulse Sky interface is available with new dashboards and charts for key performance indicators. Additionally, MediaPulse Sky is optimized for cellular networks. Users can actualize orders, confirm crewing assignments, provision video feeds, schedule sessions and review assignments wherever they may be, and with whatever device they choose.
MediaPulse Transmission 2017 also has a new, configurable operation screen with on-screen alerts and notifications. A new auto-routing feature allows users to find the best routes between two points quickly and leverages the MediaPulse Rules Engine to add user-defined criteria to the routing choices. MediaPulse Transmission offers enterprise-class operations and financial management tools designed specifically for the transmission environment, and the new features help to manage the complexities of circuits for the broadcast sector.
At NAB, Xytech will also demonstrate an automated camera-to-distribution workflow encapsulating metadata management, order management, transcoding and quality control, all performed without requiring user actions. In addition, the company’s MediaPulse development platform now offers the ability to integrate easily with any other system in the client ecosystem, enabling MediaPulse to act as a single console.
