NAB 2017: Xytech Announces MediaPulse Sky for Mobile Devices
Company Focuses on Mobility with Addition of User Interface for Smartphones and Tablets
Xytech, creator of the industry-defining facility management platform MediaPulse, unveils MediaPulse Sky, a new mobile interface for MediaPulse, at the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) this year. Additionally, over 400 new features are available to the innovative platform used by studios, networks, media companies and post facilities to power scheduling, asset managements, resource allotment, personnel, equipment, financials and more.
Expanding access and mobility for users, MediaPulse Sky is available for all portable devices. Greg Dolan, COO of Xytech, comments, “This revolutionary interface brings the power and flexibility of MediaPulse to any browser, any device, anywhere you can get an internet connection. Our users absolutely need to have complete access to MediaPulse, wherever they may be. 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.”
MediaPulse Sky is not just a web portal. It’s a thoroughly reimaged interface for mobile devices. It is configurable through MediaPulse Layout Editor, so it is also a truly personalized experience. No matter what device users rely upon – phone or tablet – it 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 with whatever device they choose.
MediaPulse Transmission 2017 has a new, completely configurable operation screen with on-screen alerts and notifications. A new auto-routing feature allows users to quickly find the best routes between two points 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 specifically designed for the transmission environment, and the new features help to manage the complexities of circuits for the broadcast sector.
Xytech has led the industry in automation for facility management software. At NAB 2017, they are demonstrating an automated camera-to-distribution workflow encapsulating metadata management, order management, transcoding and quality control, all performed with no users’ actions required. The Xytech team has also made a number of changes in the MediaPulse development platform. Now, MediaPulse offers the ability to integrate easily with any other system in the client ecosystem, enabling MediaPulse to act as a single console.
Dolan concludes, “Our innovation is hard and requires dedication, focus and fearlessness. Our job is to solve our clients’ problems before they become problems. Innovation is the key to our success.”
