Xytech bringing MediaPulse Cloud to IBC

Facility management software company Xytech will be at IBC with MediaPulse Cloud, featuring the same capabilities found in Xytech’s flagship MediaPulse platform in a secure, managed solution operating 24/7/365.

With Xytech’s scalable cloud offering, customers will no longer need to purchase, maintain and upgrade their own IT infrastructure. MediaPulse Cloud is compatible with any IT environment and works seamlessly with Windows PCs and tablets, Macs, iPads and Android tablets.

Xytech invested in a high-performance, fault-tolerant infrastructure to ensure MediaPulse Cloud’s responsiveness. Users are set up with unique databases to ensure security.

In addition to MediaPulse Cloud, the latest version of Xytech’s MediaPulse platform will also be on display at IBC. MediaPulse 2014 delivers asset management, order management, resource management and financial management in a configurable, platform-independent, browser-based application.

Says Greg Dolan, chief operating officer of Xytech, “We are intensely focused on our clients’ need for flexible, scalable solutions to the issues they face, and we feel that MediaPulse Cloud raises the bar for facility management. Over the past year, we’ve tested the system throughout the US, UK, Europe, Asia and the Middle East, and users around the world consistently tell us that MediaPulse Cloud delivers superior performance. We’ve also increased the power of MediaPulse with our 2014 release, giving our customers the competitive edge they need to succeed in today’s market. At Xytech, we are always moving forward.”

The 2014 release includes hundreds of new features and performance improvements focusing on four core areas:

User Interface — SKY 2014, the platform-independent and browser-based interface for MediaPulse, has been upgraded to include a complete graphical scheduling application, real time dashboards for user-defined KPIs and a form editor to modify all screens. Media Order and Transmission Order modules have also received significant enhancements, enabling users to create complex order profiles with one click.

System Interoperability —  MediaPulse 2014 features new adapters for Miranda, Telestream, Avid AirSpeed and Avid Capture, expanding integration capabilities and facilitating automated workflows involving a huge range of third party systems via Xytech’s Digital Order technology. Clients can also add any hardware platform to the MediaPulse ecosystem using our unique MediaPulse Adapter technology and new SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) tool.

Asset Management — Xytech’s new MetaVault MAM (Media Asset Management system) provides a complete content backbone for the creation and storage of files, proxies and metadata. This new functionality makes integrating multiple MAMs, including those from other vendors, into a comprehensive, federated solution a reality.

Internationalization — MediaPulse 2014 includes a host of fully supported Language Packs to facilitate global usage. German is now offered in addition to French (European dialect), Korean, Norwegian and Portuguese. Additional Language Packs are available upon order.
